You guys, Capsule Show NYC was a mere week and a half ago but it feels like an eon…it was another successful if not happily exhausting run up to FW14-15 thanks largely to The Shiny Squirrel!
I very wisely planned ahead and treated myself this season and less than 12 hours after it finished I was on a plane to Puerto Rico, escaping the deluge of snow Mother Nature continues to dump on us – I learned to surf, I drove a car on the Right (wrong ) side of the road, drank coconuts, swam in waters clear and blue every morning, read an entire book (!), and lazed in the sun with only the worries of whether I should make day trips to see waterfalls or reefs…
But! as I touched down to 22f this morning, NY hit me with the reality that coco loco time is over and it’s back to work.
Without further ado, proudly I present to you next Winters offerings – FW14-15
Double Moon Clutch
Ranya Cube Purse
JAG Oversized Pouch
Rachel convertible belt bag/shoulder bag
Ali Mini Duffel
Single Buckle Belt
Double Buckle Belt
Yesterday I shot, edited and compiled my lookbook/line-sheets for FW14-15 and I thought since I’m tied to this computer I may as well go ahead and edit some other images that were languishing on my hard drive and add them to the store!
I found a scrap of snakeskin printed leather and I couldn’t resist, can you?! Literally only ONE of these.
And how cute are THESE? They never went into production so I only have the two pictured here – way reduced. Sling over your shoulder for bike rides, or detach strap and you have a cute clutch!
I made a jillion (yes really, a jillion) dopp kit samples to get just the right shape and size, and have included them in my FW14-15 range, but they are so great (if I do say so myself) I am releasing THEM now!
I have to shoot my linesheets today and instead I’m searching for “dogs who eat like humans” on youtube…
Seven minutes of dogs and their guilty expressions when their owners discover their misdeeds. Love the first and the last dogs!
You guys! These winter snow storms are charming and all but Summer is really where it’s at…riding through the streets with bare arms, sitting in the park with friends and playing tennis early morning to escape the heat. It will happen! I’m super excited to bring you my Spring/Summer 2014 where I hope you’ll be doing all those things and more! It’ll all be loaded up in the next week after I’ve put the finishing touches on FW14-15 for Capsule.
As always, handcrafted in Brooklyn by me, shot by the amazingly talented Adrian Barry.
The snow is creating a wonderful light in the apartment so I took the opportunity to photograph a handful of vintage goodies I found and altered.
Full disclosure: the leather shorts I transformed from ugly pants are by far my favourites, that and the silk shirts that are, for want of a better word, so soft and silky and you can get them HERE
