I always enjoy coming across images from Celine’s Summer 2014 ad campaign. Good stuff. Good shapes.
The right laptop bag is hard to come by. I’m feeling this tote by Daame, a small new biz that launched with this product only. They donate 5% of all profits to a featured organization that supports women in some way.
Currently, donations go to Outliers International, dedicated to providing safety and education for girls in the village of Minawar, Pakistan where the literacy rate for women is as low as 12%.
Pre-order the tote ($395, was $465) which ships later in April.
Brooklyn neighbor Lily Piyathaisere is the designer and creator behind Gamma Folk, a line of braided and woven necklaces in beautiful, subtle hues. Explore her shop online, prices range around $65-75 for most pieces.

Una is likely my favorite shop in Portland. They have the most beautiful collection of clothing, jewelry and accessories, from a wide variety of designers.

Wouldn’t mind a closet full of these.
The line EQUIPMENT was originally established in 1976 by Christian Restoin whose primary idea was to create menswear shirts for women. EQUIPMENT was recently relaunched in 2010 by Serge Azria with the same vision, plus new designs and a bunch of other developments, like a cashmere collection and men’s line. Here’s a few from my wish list.
I spent a great day with the folks of (no subject) at one of their Create + Cultivate workshops, in Portland this past weekend. It is a way to meet other creative-type business folks, learn some new things and hear about other business owners and their work.
I particularly enjoyed a workshop led by Betsy of Betsy + Iwa, a great jewelry biz; a talk by Emma Mcilroy, CEO of Wildfang, the online (and soon retail) shop for all things tomboy (check it out, it’s a great business concept); cocktail-making with Art in the Age spirits; plus a delicious dinner catered by Yakuza.
Great to meet some interesting folks and to enjoy a day of making and treats. They’ve got an upcoming workshop scheduled for Brooklyn soon — more info here.
