Last month, we told you we were going to be featuring Designer of the Year Anja Gockel in this post to celebrate her line’s arrival at the store.
As it turns out, the spring shipment was delayed. So while we wait, let’s talk about accessories - your opportunity to play designer. That’s why we love when customers come in for hats & bags, scarves and jewelry - and why we put so much thought into all of them. Here’s some of what you’ll find in the store this month:
Hats & Bags
We were big fans of before he patented Squishee® material to make roll-up hats that keep their shape. But once he did, we were converts. And this summer, when you’re packing for the cottage and shove your Javits hat in your bag, only to have it come out perfectly for Friday night cocktails on the patio, you’ll be right there with us - and Nicole Kidman, Lady Gaga, Madonna and (ahem) Hillary Clinton. They all have Javits hats too.
Javits uses the same material to make just-as-easy bags in all sizes. You can throw one in your suitcase before a trip to Europe and have it come out perfectly when you arrive.
We’ve talked a lot about our buying trips on this blog and how we’re always looking to be surprised. Petrusse surprised us with the little diamonds on the corners of their scarves that offer just enough weight to keep the ends from blowing up in the wind. You don’t notice them unless you take your eyes off the Parisian prints.
Just in time to show off some colour and contour, our neck-and-ear collections pair perfectly with any ensemble in the store. Do let us know if you’re shopping for a particular event - we’ll help you accessorize accordingly.
This spring, we’re featuring Botswana Agate, Strawberry Quartz and Sodalite pieces; baroque pearls, pyrite, tourmaline; and polished Hawaiian Kukui nut beads. Our costume jewelry is mostly Spanish and British, 100% hypoallergenic and accented with Swarovski crystal.
Next month, we’ll get to Anja. This month, accessorize!
