Late Winter, Early Spring

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!

Going to the Hamptons!

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!

Being Appreciated

As a small studio that hand makes, and has contact with every single customer, every single piece that comes out of our studio and onto their bodies, we have a personal connection with each and every one. We strive to make garments that function beautifully, last a lifetime, that warm the body and the soul. We often get great feedback, you can read some on our testimonials page, which lift us up, just as we hope you are wearing our work. This week we received a beautiful one…..Thank you Susi!

“Good evening!

Just wanted to share some feedback.

I wore my lime green coat on this crisp frosty day in n. Virginia. The mood everywhere is grey and subdued. I wore ‘your’ coat to stay warm, and cheer myself up.

The response has been startling!

I have never received so many compliments in such a short time. Best of all, they can from people who worked in various couture industries (Cartier etc). When asked I told them that we met at the PMA craft show. Most were regular visitors and will be looking out for you at the upcoming shows.

Bottom line – we all have an eye for a great product (I am an ex curator)- You have an amazing coat collection . Just confirming what I hope you already know. 👍

Thank you 🌺

The Studio is Buzzing

IMG_2509

I’ve been quiet on social media lately, especially during the heat wave, thinking you may not want to look at shearling! But the studio has been buzzing working on special orders in an unusually busy summer! Here are Rose, Toshiki and Sweetie, in full swing #studio #shearling #customsizing  #madetomeasure #slowfashion

Our show season starts in August, check out our lineup of shows!

Back in the Studio

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!

Creating and Expressing Personal Style

I opened Women’s Month at the Brooklyn Museum, to view two exhibitions of female expression. I went for Marilyn Minter, but I came away with Georgia O’Keefe.

Georgia O’Keefe

Never a huge fan of her paintings, I learned so much about the whole woman, her attention to the details of her life, how meticulous she was about her clothing, beautifully documented by the great photographers in her life.

Never knew, and blown away.

Many garments made with her own hands, many carefully chosen and cherished for construction, simplicity of design, and tactile feel of natural fiber.

 Had a lunch break to avoid whiplash between these two powerful shows!

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!

Shearlings, Made One by One

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.

Stay tuned!
