Wet Paint


Can’t wait to see “Gerhard Richter Painting.” More info at [here] & peep the trailer [here].

I Spy


Thumbin’ through an old JCREW catalog, circa 1995. Wishin’ they would bring some of these classics back.

Ready To Wear


Scarf season! A study of some of Mary’s favorite Hermès pieces. From Left to Right: The Pani La Shar Pawnee, Brides de Gala (Grandma’s OG 1957), Les Clés and The Grand Apparat. Bonjour Hermès. Je serais ravi de vous rencontrer.

To Do List


Warming up the warmers… getting back in gear. Chocolate making season.

Hot Stepper’s


From the city to the suburbs – to the beach – to the southwest… Mary’s custom Chance espadrilles have traveled well. It’s been a great summer, but now is time to think about a custom made loafer.



Simply Beautiful



Eric Cahan’s sky series. Meditate [here].



Who says work can’t be fun! Mary just finished helping art direct & illustrate the latest WHiT SS12 collection. Shout out to photographer Lilia DeGregory & stylist Vanessa Packer.

Le Crocodile


A true champ, innovator, and stylish monsieur, René Lacoste. Nicknamed “the Crocodile” after a bet he made with the Captain of the French Davis Cup in which he promised René a crocodile-skin suitcase if he won – and he did. Love these looks on the court and off.

Back 2 School


Stripes & Dots


We have been working in the lab this summer on a few “Fun, Fun, Fun” new things for fall. There is still time to enjoy three more weeks of summer until the equinox, September 23rd.
