Getting to Know / Sies Marjan

Every city has its own unique characteristics that inspire designers – in New York, it’s a surprisingly colorful mix these days that’s drawing the attention of the stylish masses. Namely Sies Marjan, by designer Sander Lak, who showed his second collection this past Sunday to a crowd decked out head-to-toe in his designs. Designs in so many unusually brilliant colors they could fill a very fashionable crayon box!

Art of Life / Richard Christiansen

The Art of Life is a new series where we introduce you to people who inspire us by the way they live their life. Exploring style, I’ve understood that it’s not just how you layer your clothes. It’s in the way you walk, in the foods you eat, in the people around you, the lifestyle choices you make. The people in this feature have, in some way or another, designed their lives based on their very personal interests, dreams, and choices.

They are the kind of people who write their own rules, tell their own stories, and shape their own futures – and we couldn’t be more excited to learn from them, and share them with you too.


Using the words “one of a kind” to describe Richard Christiansen seems like a disservice. Don’t get me wrong, he is very much one of a kind, but he is so much more than that. A creative, a leader, a beekeeper, an adventurer (as in, he just climbed Everest), a story teller, friend, magician of sorts. He has an anecdote for every occasion and is damn happy to share them with you. And though he has the world under his belt, as well as a successful creative agency called Chandelier, Richard is also pleasantly humble.

Velvet Crush

The studio (and by the studio I mean me) is pretty psyched about the cooler temperatures that are fast approaching! Don’t get me wrong summer, you are my most favorite but I’m getting a bit tired of wearing a dang slip dress every single day…You feel me?

With this in mind, I thought it was perfect timing to feature a fabric that is completely inappropriate for summer. Au revoir cute little basket bag, hellloooooooo VELVET!
