I’m incredibly excited to announce this news! Today is the first release of a series of product collaborations that will be arriving to the shop in the coming months. Since this summer, I have been working with some talented artists and makers to create new, exclusive items. We’ve designed these products together specifically for the shop. We’ve based our first group of issues around a visual story from art direction I’ve provided. It’s incredible to collaborate with other artists and see what we create together! The issues to come will feature products for women, the home, gifts, dinner parties, and the office. All of the products are made by hand with care. It’s been a complete joy to team up with these artists, and I cannot be more excited to share what we’ve created with you.

We are starting today with Issue one, which is inspired by the gentle cool winter air in California. The nights are darker and the evening is sweet. This midnight romantic mood has inspired a fantastic group of people to create the items that will be appearing in the shop. It’s been amazing to see how each artist works and can translate a visual story through their craft. I’ve been so inspired by the creatives that I’ve had the pleasure to collaborate with – I hope you are too!

All of our collaborative products are first only available here or through the artist – this is something truly unique that you won’t find anywhere else.

Linda Fahey is a California ceramic artist inspired by the wind and waves of the shores where she lives south of San Francisco. I was introduced to Linda through a mutual friend, and I’m so happy we met. When I first visited Linda in her studio and shop, it was completely evident her surroundings influence her work – the waves, the driftwood, the soft gray light by the foggy shores. She draws all of these things into what she creates in such a thoughtful way.

Miguez is a California based artist who loves jewelry, photography and arts. Her copper and gold jewelry is based around memories and little sentiments. For me, “keep going” is a daily mantra that carries me through. I’m so excited she has worked with me to create something so close to my heart.

Ann-Marie Rayney is a fine artist based in London. Some of Ann-Marie’s artwork was in my original mood board for this season and I finally thought, I should research this and find out who did it. Of course, when I found her I saw all of her work is completely inspiring – contemplative, elegant, soft yet brave. She stacks layers upon layers, mixing commercial screen printing processes with photography and collage. It’s amazing to me that we were able to collaborate even though we live across the ocean!
