I mean, can you think of anyone more qualified to tell you what to buy? Jonathan Adler, who needs no introduction but I’ll give you one anyway, is a designer who is also an author who started off as a potter – whew! He loves color and accessorizing and knows exactly what you should buy this holiday season. Here, he’ll tell you himself:
I’ve always been incredibly inspired by women who have put their own twist on building their life–who have found their own way to do what so many others have done. In the case of designer Ryan Roche, whose clothes I’ve long coveted for their lush fabrics and sophisticated silhouettes, she’s built one of the most beautiful fashion brands from her home upstate. Her friend and Atelier Doré favorite, Laura Ferrara, has always been such a champion of not only her work but of the life she’s built upstate as part of the creative community in the Hudson Valley, so we were thrilled when she invited Pia and Tori to visit her at her home, which she shares with her husband, three kids and four dogs. It’s romantic and dreamy and, of course, inspiring.

Jean Touitou’s brand, A.P.C., has been a favorite of mine for absolutely ever. And when I say ever, I mean it. I was 17 when I started saving my money to buy… well anything I could afford from his amazing brand. When it started, it was so revolutionary to me. Deep, cool, humble, fun, and super chic at the same time. It represented, exactly the woman that I wanted to be. Years later, A.P.C. is more than ever a part of our landscape and more than ever an island of quiet rebellion.
To understand the spirit behind such a cult brand, you have to meet its founder, the endlessly inspiring Jean Touitou.
