Such a pleasure to see what one of the shop’s first designers is up to now.

I haven’t had long hair in 15 years, and I haven’t had much desire to have it since then. That is until I came across Sarah Beaver’s delicate flora inspired ponytail holders and barrettes for her accessories line, Weneversleep. (Beautifully photographed by Dustin Fenstermacher.) They’re constructed of precious and semi-precious materials (keishi pearl and coral) and deadstock hair accessories. Let’s just say these completely blow my mind. Beaver is also offering a small selection of deadstock silk bras with handpainted silk dye patterns, also botanically influenced.
Very excited to announce the arrival of a new-to-the-shop designer today, Ilana Kohn. Her collection is full of super soft silks, saturated colours, and beautiful prints including her signature marbleized print. Kohn has everything produced in Brooklyn and her pieces are relaxed and very wearable. Check it out!
If you’ve been a follower of PP for some time you’ll know I’ve been a longtime fan of German label Reality Studio. I own a jacket that I wear constantly. It’s been awhile since I’ve perused any of their collections, and an intriguing glimpse of their upcoming A/W 12/13 collection on Stil in Berlin prompted me to revisit.

If you’re like us, you always have a need for wearable, versatile pieces – except they can’t be boring. This week we welcome two new designers who have found the key to this balance. Miss Alice is an Israeli label by Alice Dahan that never fails to nail the perfect slouchy drop crotch trouser, and perfect feather light cotton knit tee, shape changing bag, and well you get the idea!
Symmetry Goods by husband and wife team Ted Byrnes and Gena Tuso (two AMAZINGLY talented people who are super nice to boot) ably demonstrate that scarves can be not only immensely cool but they can do more than just wrap around your neck a couple times. We currently carry two styles (see the Hemingway above), but Symmetry made a Special Edition Lytton Scarf just for little ol’ Pour Porter. They let me pick out the plaid fabric! Definitely very excited about these two new labels – be sure to click over to scope the goods
