All in the Details: Subtle Shifts

By in

We appreciate the smallest of details and believe these subtleties are the things that bring your daily ensembles to the next level. Asymmetrical cuts, a slight dip of a hem or a fresh pop of color are all small things that will do heavy lifting with your everyday go-to pieces.

The Fifth Label ‘Safe and Sound’ Shirt Dress

The slight dip and hemline of the dress is what makes this dress cool and slightly sporty.

We dig the boxy fit and tomboy-ness of it.

UNIF ‘Stevie’ Dress

What’s sweet about this dress is that not only does it remind us of Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac, anyone?) but the asymmetrical cut and fringe is what gives the piece movement all around.

Teal High Waist Pant

These teal lightweight trousers have a relaxed silhouette that is cozy and looks as easy-going as it feels.

Tomato Cropped Knit Sweater & Skirt

What we love most about this knit combo is it’s bright red tomato hue that matches perfectly with neutral colors for fall. Layer separately or go all in for a monochromatic look.

STYLE MUSE: Francoise Hardy

By in

French musician and model Francoise Hardy epitomized Parisian chic in the Sixties. Her minimal approach in style embraced an effortlessly sweet girl-next-door vibe that matched her shy personality. Yet still, no matter where she was vacationing to or lounging around in, Francoise always kept it simple and never overdone in classic miniskirts, easy babydoll dresses, and slim fitting trousers that paired perfectly with her signature long locks and pouty lips.

STREETSTYLE: GREEN FIELD

By in

As we ease into the fall season, we’re opting for moodier palettes and dark florals that have blossomed in a much less romantic way. Think dramatic green tones and prints reminiscent of stone and marble textures.

Symbolism : Desert Voyager

By in

The clothing we choose can take on a symbolic meaning, whether we know it or not. The shirt that we always gravitate to and the bracelet that we can’t help but wear everyday. These are the pieces that go beyond style or adornment and start to cross into the realm of meaning and emotions. Here we break down the collection that we’ve brought into the shop this week and visually communicate the feeling each piece evokes in us.

Insp1

Infinite Universe ‘Hieroglyphs’ TeeThe first look was translated from the literal textures found within the desert environment. Sands and hieroglyphics mask this look as they do in most Egyptian deserts.

 

Insp_2

Something Else Tassel CardiganSubtle nods to structural elements found within this garment inspired the statuesque and repetitive background. It was important to recognize the complex constructed qualities that pyramids and the like are composed of.

 

insp3

Deja Vu Tassel ScarfThis look was heavily influenced by the idea of mirages and the almost bi-polar weather that surfaces as day morphs into night. Suddenly covering up for warmth is necessity as the cold creeps over.

 

insp4.4

Gypsy Junkies ‘Wildheart’ Bowler BlouseThis look exemplifies the heat and brightness found within the desert. It was important to connect these two ideas while keeping in mind accessories that lent a practical defense against such climates.

 

 

insp5

 

Aten Pendant NecklaceThis accessory references the cultural history of Egypt’s Past, while providing a new and current perspective dually. Embellishment played a huge role in Egypt’s culture, just as it does presently.

IN THE MOOD: CAFE STAR

“To search expectantly for a radio signal from an extraterrestrial source is probably as culture bound a presumption as to search the galaxy for a good Italian restaurant. And yet, this has been chosen as the avenue by which it is assumed contact is likely to occur.” -Terence McKenna
