The Spring Trench

I think the biggest mistake I make each year is assuming that once April comes into play, so does the warmer weather. Frankly, that is just not the case. Especially this spring. It is COLD. I’m talking full puffers and gloves kind of cold. Sure, it’s not ideal but I like to look on the bright side of things — we can still have fun with layering. Enter the trench coat. Ah, the trench. Let me count the reasons why I love thee. 1) It’s warmer than it looks. 2) It’s not as heavy on the eyes, compared to your now beat up puffer and peacoat. 3) It’s breathable and allows for lots of movement. 4) If the day starts out at a brisk 39 degrees and ends at a cool 59 degrees you are still good to go. No sweating involved. 5) Who doesn’t love a trench? Classic, cool, and versatile. All the good stuff. So with the help of our friend and stylist Rebecca Alaniz, here are our favorite trench coats for spring!

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.
