So excited to share the collaboration between the mighty Montana folks of Kletterwerks and the stylish Lizzie Garrett Mettler of Tomboy Style. The bag they designed together features all the strength and durability of a classic Kletterwerks with the quirk of Tomboy Style. A tote and a backpack, the tote-pack is functional, versatile, and simplistically stylish. Throw in your weekend kit, hiking gear, or maybe even a picnic lunch and a couple bottles of wine. Available in two colors and made in the USA. You can grab one from Tomboy Style, Kletterwerks, and a few select retailers including Mohawk General Store.

Boast has released their Spring 2014 collection so you can now see photos from the shoot I styled for them on the website. The incredible photos were shot by the talented Mikael Kennedy. It was awesome working with the Boast team and our two amazing models Natasha and Neal. The collection is very cool and consistent with the brands’ old school charm.
What better day to treat yourself than on Valentine’s Day? For those looking for a mindful shopping resource, look no further than Zady. The one stop shop for men, women, and home goods, Zady curates a selection of conscious brands that value craftsmanship. The site’s mission is to combat fast-fashion by providing quality clothing and goods that will become a part of the customer’s lifestyle. They’ve been loading some new items on the site, just in time for Spring! For women, the new Lucy silhouette from Nashville based denim brand Imogene + Willie is now available. Bracelets and earrings from Chicago brand Winifred Grace are made by women in Cuernavaca, Mexico who are able to make an income for their family through their jewelry making. My eyes are on the eyes painted on this leather card pouch from Falconwright. Based in Toronto, Falconwright sources their materials from local suppliers and screen prints them by hand. And for men, check out some basics from Danish brand Won Hundred. They source materials throughout Europe and utilize artisan manufactures to produce their goods. The small team of Won Hundred has been working with the same denim manufacturer in Italy since 2005. Now that’s love.
Unlike some, NYFW doesn’t really send me into an excited frenzy. That being said, there are a few brands that I very much looking forward to seeing every year. Billy Reid is one of them. This brand has been a favorite since I saw a collection at Capsule trade show several years back. I had admired the clothing online for its decidedly southern character and classic silhouettes, but it wasn’t until seeing the craftsmanship in person that I truly fell in love. The materials are luxurious in texture and quality and the tailoring is impeccable. Founder Billy Reid designs the collections from his home base of Florence, AL and employs artisan factories in the USA and Europe to bring them to life. I continue to be impressed with the quality, authenticity, and heritage of his designs. It’s always a pleasure to get a sneak peek of the runway presentation hosted at the new Highline Hotel with their behind-the-scenes videos (above). I’ve included some of my favorite looks from the collection (photos via GQ). And be sure to stop by the website and admire my friend Mikael Kennedy’s photography of the S/S 2014 collection (a couple below). His work for them is spectacular and I wish it was available as a printed booklet.
