Scarves are one of those pieces of clothing that I seem to accumulate at a ridiculous pace. I’m one of those people who is constantly cold so scarves are pretty essential. Given our cold weather of late I’ve had scarves on the brain. If you ever happen to check out our Featured page on the Shop, you may have noticed that it changes every week and for the past two weeks I’ve rotated a few of the scarves we have on it. Brannan has the Hemingway and wears it daily, and I can attest to the softness and warmth of the Upstate scarves (flannel!). Anyway, the point of all this blah, blah, blah is to say – check out our scarf selection guys!
In other shop news, while we’ve sold out of quite a few of everyone’s favourites (all Kora pieces are officially sold now), we still have A LOT of good things left. I’m not planning on putting any new arrivals up until after the holidays (anyone else having information overload?) but we had a much bigger influx of A/W inventory this season, so you may have missed some things. I will be adding back a few past season pieces that are on sale next week. Have a great week everyone!
Very happy to announce that our A/W 2011 Lookbook is now live! And our model is none other than the super talented, up-and-coming artist Toyin Odutola who is currently finishing up her MFA at California College of the Arts.
We met back in the early 00s on Livejournal (snicker) and after a year or so of me badgering her, she was gracious enough to come visit us and be our model. We all had so much fun and she makes everything look amazing. Do check it out!
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
