Sophie Buhai is such an interesting designer. Not only is her jewellery extremely precious but wearable, she also creates tactile design objects like lighter cases, cigarette boxes*, paperweights and combs. Her AW22 and Resort 23 collections use onyx for rings, pendants and this incredible handcarved pocket mirror, as well as white jade, rock crystal and red jasper (I love the ‘Boule’ collar).
I used to love Lucas Ossendrijver menswear for Lanvin. Finally, he’s back with a new collection – and it includes an offering for women.
Theory Project is a joint effort between Theory and Lucas Ossendrijver, launching on September 7th. It’s inspired by city living and people watching and includes ‘pragmatic’ contemporary classics – hooded parkas, striped shirting, chunky loafers – with a big focus on sustainable fabrics such as recycled wools and nylons. I’ve spotted the perfect boxy blazer and cotton twill pant and have my eye on the striped band collar shirt and velvet sneakers.
The photography by David Sims is a great intro to what we can expect but you can get a proper preview at Theoryhere. (more…)
“Boat and Tote sales are up 30 percent over last year and have been one of the top drivers of new buyers this spring and summer. It’s been really fun seeing a new generation of customers taking our classic tote and making it their own.” L.L. Bean spokesperson, Amanda Hannah.
