Péro from India #1

Pero2In the language of Rajasthan, India, péro means ‘to wear.’ Launched by Aneeth Arora, Péro evokes international aesthetic by using local material and skills, taking inspiration from surroundings in order to make the product connect with people from all over the world.

The Indian-ness of Péro rests in the textile process, where materials pass through the hands of one craftsperson to the other, carrying forward the Indian tradition of hand-crafting and creating pieces that are at once unique. Buttons, embroidery, and other surprising and thoughtful details make Péro a joy to wear. Shown with Rundholz black jacket adds a creative layering option.

Fanciful Neutrals from Greg Lauren

Untitled-1Fanciful Neutrals from Greg Lauren. Deconstructed, reconstructed, draped and torn, the cream colored cashmere nomad coat and matching rucksack are neutral garments that live on the wild side. A linen patchwork dinner jacket and patchwork tuxedo shirt promise to be a bull in the china shop of an otherwise stodgy dining affair. You don’t need to wear wild colors to stand out in a crowd.  

Etro’s Dazzling Pattern Design

Untitled-1Etro has long been known for their signature paisley patterns, but their ability to dazzle with courageous and creative pattern work reaches far beyond these gorgeous little Persian-inspired droplets. A simple black button down is imbued with a stunning collage of bold florals and painterly motifs.  An Indian-inspired silk and cashmere scarf paired with an emerald-hued Dries Van Noten blouse invokes a holiday in Jaipur.  Etro‘s patterns are as limitless as the imagination.

Dries Van Noten sold in-store only. Please call for further information.

Denis Colomb Scarves

denis“This spring found us captivated by the tropical Polynesian Islands. The lagoons with their gorgeous hues of blues, coral reefs and their brightly colored fish; the captivating array of colors found in mother of pearl, and the lush tropical forests overflowing with exotic plants and flowers, have infused our collection with their colors and patterns. Our search for the finest and rarest offerings have led us to India, and with the help of a small fair trade organization, we are now able to introduce into our collection hand-loomed cottons, in natural dyed colors, as well as fine hand-woven printed silks. In Nepal, our workshops continue making the sheerest cashmere weaves and lightest fiber combinations for our shawls, knits, and woven apparel. Whether you summer in the Amagansett or Malibu, Patmos or Tangiers, this collection will accompany you on your journey with elegance and ease.”
