and we have been working hard to bring some lighter spring colors in our shearling collection, as well as some Lambskins to order, and our popular cowls for that ultimate neck warmer with any jacket. Stop by my booth #7-5035 to see!
Yesterday here in the Northeast we got a little taste of spring. I have heard many New Yorkers say recently, enough black! And I couldn’t agree more during this time of seasonal and mood transition………lighten up, and consider color! Either the base color of a coat, or so many trim combinations, you can add a lightness to enjoy while still keeping warm…..Come see us at one of our next shows for a look at what we have been working on!
We are bringing our collection to the renowned end of summer event in Bridgehampton, NY, The Hampton Classic, opening one week from today.
“As one of the largest outdoor horse shows in the United States, and a premier destination for horse people, the Classic is a much-anticipated stop on the summer tour. Now well into its third successful decade, The Hampton Classic Horse Show is in a class all its own, both in the minds of spectators and horse people alike.”
It’s a beautiful event to watch magnificent riders and horses compete, stroll the beautiful, grounds, shop the Boutique Garden, and just people watching……..we will be in our usual spot by the red umbrella. See you there!

handcrafted of fine Merino Shearling and Lambskin
Made to Measure, and Off the Rack
I can honestly say I feel well rested and getting back to being organized, my desk is cleared off, the orders are in order, and ready to design and make new things, after participating in two big shows last week.
Before leaving for The Smithsonian Craft Show last week, we completed an item that had been in the works in our heads for a few months, and I couldn’t be more excited after wearing it at the show. Only having time to make one, I took it on an off as a sample (so easy to slip over the head, or zip down the back) for try ons. And everyone that tried it on wound up ordering it! Thank you for inspiring us! We will be making more of these over the summer. Such a blank palette, beautiful as it is, but the possibilities are endless! Made of beautiful French Lambskin, this Tunic is going to be my go to item, and the FEEL of it is amazing!
Wether you are seeking a special one of a kind jacket, or a simple every day, beautifully made, functional, coat,we will work with you to select and/or make the perfect shearling, to best enhance you and your wardrobe!
Our skins are of the ultimate lightness, and our construction techniques eliminate bulk, so you can enjoy your very special jacket, off the rack or custom fit, for years to come.
Hope to see you!
Opening a fresh box of some beautiful skins to make a special order, one of our most intricate designs of multi color lambskins, which float over a black napalan shearling.
First step is inspecting the skins, cleaning up the edges, and sorting……as no two skins are the same, we need to choose weight, the wool “nap”, suppleness, and size to relate to the different pattern pieces to be placed, marked and cut.
We will be serving up some serious “BUTTAH” at our upcoming shows …….just look at these new skins that came in, and imagine how soft and supple they are…napa finish silky merino…..Find out what will will design with these, or have some input on what would be perfect for you!
Our kick off is with a Trunk Show in Philadelphia, in conjunction with The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft show, Nov 11th & 12th, a few doors down at The Hilton Garden Inn. Six designers, one Intimate setting, complimentary admission
One of our long time clients had a dream. A purple leather coat. Over the years she has been a true lover of our work, a patron who has one of just about every collection we ever created, always special order as she has her own unique figure ,as many of us do.
This week she is traveling to Germany to visit family and friends, and wanted to show them all that older ladies can rock a sense of style, as she does, always with a smile on her face. So before shipping that purple leather coat, with a “surprise” silk lining, I had to snap a few pics, on me, although not quite my size, you get the idea! Bon Voyage Helene!
