Patagonia has always been my outdoor apparel of choice. Not only because of the clothing’s superior quality and performance, but also because of the company’s mission to give back to the environment that has been impacted by the their use of resources and production of limited waste. In one year alone, Patagonia has donated 6.2 million to fund environmental work. And since their philanthropy program started in 1985, they’ve given 70 million to non profits and in the form of grants. So when environmentally sustainable label Reformation launched a curated collection of Patagonia puffer jackets and fleece pullovers this week, we thought it was match made in do-gooder heaven. Plus, the styling is so point! The best investment for your fall and winter wardrobe, for sure.
Olivia Muus knew she was onto something after taking a photo, with a friend, on a trip to the National Gallery of Denmark. It turns out, manipulating an old painting, in the form of a selfie, can give a character’s facial expression an entirely new meaning. So it was then that a Tumblr account was born and Olivia could continue her cheeky art project and encourage others to submit their own museum selfies. The result is downright amusing and hilarious! The next time you’re at a museum and find yourself in front of a historic portrait, maybe try your hand at your own #museumofselfie. But remember, no flash please.
Wow. I am blown away by Swedish designer Sara Robertsson‘s absolutely stunning collection of sculptural silver jewelry. Earrings and rings flow and fold, with controlled abandon, in one continuous sheet of sterling silver. Each piece is voluminous yet extremely lightweight in texture and modest in it’s material. Obsessed.
The best thing about fall and winter dressing is the outerwear. 100%. So when someone like Alexandra Shipper launches a label solely dedicated to coats and blazers, we get excited. After traveling to Europe to witness experience elaborate hand executed techniques when it came to dressmaking, and designing for Issaac Mizrahi in New York, Alexandra wanted to craft a collection of coats for women who see outerwear as a form of expression. The construction is borrowed from menswear tailoring but the silhouettes are refined and feminine. These timeless pieces are sure to be classic wardrobe staples.
