A few month ago a dear friend asked if I’d like to work on sewing projects with a small group of women in the Philippines. YES YES YES! I love entrepreneurship, and the goal is to create a working product that can be produced well after I leave.
So I’m heading out for 3 weeks. My little shop will still take orders, but they will not ship until the week of July 29th.
This past week I had the pleasure of shooting my friend Grace for my new collection. With only a 2-hour advanced notice, she naturally gave me her best in every shot. We scouted a lovely location and were elated to find the homeowner willing to allow strangers to roam around his property.
And so, without further adieu, I present my latest work, The Essentials, with hopes that you will also appreciate the spontaneity that went into it.
Simple shapes and classic styles inspired the collection. Minimalism in mind, I wanted to build a repertoire of fundamental elements. Building blocks for a timeless wardrobe. Adding to this, the underlying message that sustainability can be beautiful.
Ironically I topped the year off with a black bag. Most would probably think this is where a designer would start, simple and classic. But I like to say I’m working up to better and best.
I do love every piece I make, and my craft becomes more passion filled as I go along.
Buy handmade this year.
Ok now that I said the most important part, here’s the icing:
My dry goods shop is updating weekly with new leather goods.
New, oh so cool necklaces, cross body leather bag, and minimalist wallets (wallets debut on Friday).
Because generosity is, for some reason, triggered only during this time of year – possibly induced by food comas – I’m having a store-wide holiday sale.
Subscribe to be the first to know when the 48 hour sale goes live. Why? Quantities are limited folks.
I hope your Thanksgiving includes other people and a Polaroid camera. My Instax is loaded and ready to go.
Sending love to you all. Really.
This necklace may actually be functional if you are an old IT gal/guy. Old as in experience, not in years. If you are able to ID the hanging charms on these necklaces, you and my dad may likely have long conversations about T1′s while your beepers go off. Oh that’s right, you’re on call.
