The Dusen Dusen SS 12 collection has arrived at the shop this week! Ellen always comes up with the best prints each season – the Bugs print is my favourite of this collection. We’ve also stocked a couple of her signature backpacks in a paisley and grid print.
In other shop related news, we shot our SS 12 Lookbook over the weekend. We weren’t sure we’d have time to, but we managed (mostly because I always overbook myself-ha)! I brainstormed up something pretty different this go-around so stay tuned. We should have it up in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime you can check out the phone snap I took of the shoot below
Over the weekend we did a huge drop of all sorts of delicious new bags. A limited restocking of Osei-Duro bogalon bags (we sold out of the tan suede within a half hour of uploading it!) including a new cream leather version, an amazing double-take worthy bag by Rachel Comey, and an indispensable massive tote from ANNTIAN.
But we have to admit what we’re most excited about is that we now carry the beautiful handiwork of Nutsa Modebadze. Every bag she makes herself! There’s been a lot of buzz about her, but unless you live in Russia her pieces are hard to come by. So of course we’re super happy to finally be able to offer them to everyone in the States. The quality of workmanship is fantastic, and you’re buying a piece that will last you years
Hey all, we launched quietly very early Sunday morning and are making the official announcement today. If you’re on the mailing list you should have already been informed! I hope everyone will find something they like from our small, but thoughtfully selected inventory. We had a lot of fun figuring out what to carry at launch and all of the designers I worked with were wonderful. We’ve got a nice mix of recognizable pieces from designers and brands who have gotten a lot of love here recently (Manu by Lauren Manoogian, and Swedish Hasbeens), beautiful, versatile, intriguing classics (Mono), visually and socially inspiring clothing and accessories from just-breaking-onto-the-scene designers (ffiXXed and Osei-Duro), and handmade one-of-a-kind pieces from a couple RISD students with a fresh, artistic perspective (Nora MacLeod and Elsinore Smidth-Carabetta).
We’ve got a lot of exciting things planned for the shop, which I’m mostly going to keep on the dlow until we go live with them, but suffice it to say there will always be something new and interesting to experience at the shop. More immediately, we’ll be adding two new designers in May/June and a few new items each month. I’ll be pretty active with the News section of the shop too where I’ll be posting updates regarding the shop and things that I think you’ll find of interest that aren’t appropriate to post here.
