The stripe: perpetually chic and timeless. It’s also the underlying theme of a new label, which launched this week, appropriately named La Ligne. Rag & Bone and Vogue alums Molly Howard, Meredith Melling and Valerie Boster joined forces on this new venture, inspired to provide luxurious, yet affordable, wardrobe essentials that will never go out of style. The clothing, which is produced in New York, pays homage to “la ligne” in various iterations, whether it be as a pattern, a single line or even a cheeky play on words. And of course, leave it to these three fashion insiders to create one of the best shopping features on their direct to consumer site: each item is presented alongside three different ways to style each piece. You know, so you don’t stay within the lines . . .
SteamLine Luggage is making me feel like I’ve been traveling the wrong way. For far too long. Honestly, how chic is their vintage inspired luggage?! Despite their flawless design, I love how their suitcases are ultimately suited for practical, modern day travel. Each carryon and stowaway is lightweight in construction and equipped with silent wheels, TSA approved locks and extendable handles. Now that I’ve decided my travel game needs a complete overhaul, I just need to settle on a color . . .
Spring is in full swing, which means I get to indulge in transitioning my wardrobe from a worn out season to a fresh one. So long boots. See you next season coats and chunky knits. Later wool hats. Hello sandals! Yo off the shoulder blouses! Hiya straw hats! I mean, honestly, who doesn’t love what the sun brings?
To celebrate the start of spring, our favorite milliner Lola Ehrlich of Lola Hats is sharing a super easy tutorial for one of her best sellers: The Alpargatas. We’re absolutely smitten with the way she’s threaded grosgrain ribbon through the crown of the oversized raffia hat, leaving just enough slack to tie around the neck. And the raw, fringed edge and erratic stitching is just is flat out FUN. I’m in love with this hat – it’s sure to be a spring and summer staple!
The perfect leather sofa can be wonderfully masculine and sophisticated. And because finding the one can feel like a huge investment, it’s important to choose wisely. Narrow down the style first: do you like the classic, tufted Chesterfield? Or a more low profile, mid-century shape? Then color: tan, camel, brown, or black? I personally love a rich, camel leather but there are so many gorgeous choices out there, it’s hard to go wrong. Just remember to stay away from sheen or shine as it can take it from classy to cheesy real quick.
