When Jessie Randall launched her outerwear collection online yesterday, we were beaming with excitement. Before even seeing it, we immediately knew what to expect from her 9 piece collection: quality, timeless, and chic. It’s Loeffler Randall, after all. From a lavender leather foam motorcycle jacket (want) to a cheetah printed shaved shearling car coat (need) to a multi-colored shearling bomber jacket (must have), we are all longing to dress just like Jessie this fall . . .
Jasenko Đorđević is another artist who is using the tips of graphite pencils as his canvas. With just an X-acto knife and a tiny chisel, the Bosnian sculptor works his fine talents on the smallest surface area. The detail is incredible – my favorite is the matryoshka dolls!
Sophie Kahn and Bouchra Ezzahraoui have made it their objective to make over the fine jewelry industry. By cutting out the middlemen in their online retail model, they are able to offer precious metal jewelry at fair and affordable prices. Their collection is made up of 14 and 18k gold jewelry that is timeless and for everyday wear – something that I’ve becoming more prone to wearing these days. And for every jewelry purchase, AUrate donates a book to charter schools located in underprivileged communities around the country.
Basket weaving is one of the oldest and widest spread crafts in the history of human civilization, which makes handwoven baskets a collector’s dream. I love the idea of displaying a collection of baskets on the wall – they are, indeed, works of art!
