Studio Visit / Allied Maker

I think our Studio Visits are some of my favorite posts to product on this site. They give me the capability to peek behind the curtain and learn how something is lovingly designed and made. Today we continue this peek behind the curtain with Allied Maker, a New York based lighting design and manufacturing studio that is helmed by the husband and wife duo, Ryden and Lanette. Their lighting collections are sleek, gorgeous, and put a new emphasis on thoughtful design. The same could be said for the couple themselves who invited Pia and myself into their design and manufacturing space, gave us some of the best bagels we ever had, taught us how to make a cup of coffee with a Siphon and sent us our way with Lanette’s favorite coffee, Graffeo, that she has shipped in from San Francisco. This couple curates everything in their life to be something they love, so it’s no wonder the execution of their lighting designs and exceed your average reading light.

Ilkin Kurt’s Refined Simplicity

A single Google search of Ilkin Kurt could build an entire mood board. Her style is endlessly inspiring in its ability to be both spontaneous and “on brand.” We’ve featured Ilkin once before on the streets of Sydney but when she dropped by New York, we couldn’t help but expand a bit on our fashion crush and ask her to show us a few more looks. Read on to find out how this buyer shapes her style.

Norma Kamali: Ahead of Her Time

Ok, ok. You’re about to hear probably one of my favorite, most inspiring podcasts ever. You probably know Norma Kamali, but let me introduce her still. She’s a fashion designer, a pioneer in every way. She’s made some of fashions most recognizable designs, she created swimwear when it wasn’t yet a thing, and she also has been talking about wellness well before there was even a word for it. Oh, also, she is redefining what it means to be aging, and I’m telling you, women need that.

Yes, Norma is 72, she is not afraid to say it, and she is probably one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. And by that I mean the way she moves, the way she thinks, the way she looks at you, the way she leads her life, the way she works, all that makes up her beauty. She taught me so much in such little time, that I decided to let the podcast go a little bit longer…

Why stop something when it’s so good?
