The Introduction: The Arrivals

A new exciting brand to watch out for – The Arrivals.

Launching today, The Arrivals will focus on “redrafting outerwear with modern silhouettes and elevated design details.” Designed in New York and made in America, the brand is following the Everlane direct to consumer model, allowing the founders to create high quality, incredibly designed outerwear at a more accessible price point ($245-685). I obviously haven’t seen the products in person yet, but the incredible materials and design details (including removable fur lining and collars) definitely have me intrigued. The leather jacket is one of the best I’ve seen this season and the modular parka with removable lining is an obvious choice as we head into winter.

The Introduction: Elkin

I am a sucker for a good lookbook and the Elkin Fall 2014 campaign featuring Emma Roberts is awesome. Always happy to discover a new American made brand… and I’ll be making this tee my own immediately. Is it overkill to get both colors? asshole-tee

The Introduction: Calder

Interesting silhouettes, natural fabrics, made in California with relatively approachable pricing – Calder is the type of collection I’m always happy to find.

Add in a look book shot by (designer Amanda Blake’s cousin-in-law!) Sofia Coppola at her New York apartment and┬ástockists including Steven Alan, Ten Over Six, and Bird and you have what I’m guessing will ┬ábe the next big tee shirt line. My personal (albeit boring) favorite is the stripe rampling tee, but I’d be happy to wear that short sleeve sweatshirt as well…

The Introduction: Scarr Leather Goods

When you write a blog that features and highlights cool new things and also develop products and retail assortments, you inevitably get tired of “stuff.” After a while everything feels the same and you lose motivation and interest… until something new comes around that makes you think, or possibly makes you smile.

The new collection from Scarr isn’t revolutionary but what matters (almost all that ever matters) is that it’s really, really good. Sonia Scarr has taken classic materials and shapes and combined them in ways that feel new and exciting – and everything is done by hand. I’m most drawn to the leather goods for the home, with interesting mixed material applications and thoughtful hand-stitching, but the personal accessories benefit from thoughtful details as well.
