A spotlight on Jane Aldridge, one of the very first fashion bloggers. In 2007, Jane created Sea of Shoes to celebrate her love of decadent footwear, and she has since evolved into a trusted industry voice. Through her use of beautiful imagery and tasteful point of view, Jane is known for her eclectic mix of luxury designers, South Western themes, and one-of-a-kind vintage pieces. This past Fall, Jane co-hosted a Tibi trunk show at By George in Austin, TX where we uncovered some tidbits of what she’s into including Japanese films, a celebrity crush, and current reads.
A spotlight on incredibly talented L.A. jewelry designer, Anita Ko. My favorite pair of earrings are from Anita, so I was thrilled to meet with her on a recent trip to L.A. Over drinks at Chateau Marmont we bonded over our obsession with all things luxury, always quite simple and modern, never too precious, but utterly unique and often with a bizarre twist. Anita would never be one to just serve up just simple stud diamonds – it’s more like in the form of a leopards head or my current craving, the weathered sharks tooth ring trimmed in a delicate strand of gold and diamonds. -Amy
A special spotlight on my friend and New York restaurateur, Joe Bastianich. I’ve been friends with Joe and his wife Deanna for years, they’re an amazing and creative couple. Besides being an amazing restaurateur (he’s partners with Mario Batali –Babbo, Spotted Pig, Del Posto, Eataly…the list goes on), Joe is a passionate musician, and now most famously a bit of a harsh (but extremely stylish) critic on Master Chef. -Amy
This month’s spotlight is Los Angeles furniture designer Byron Stripling. I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with Byron on various projects over the last ten years. His style can be described as refined industrial modern and he’s created many fabulous pieces for our showroom, the Tibi store, and the Tibi suite at The Cloister Hotel on Sea Island Georgia. His amazing personal style (as well as his beautiful wife’s and daughter) comes through in his work – sleek, modern, elegant – I could go on forever. If you’re interested in seeing some of his pieces, you can contact him as email@example.com.
Toby Tucker Peters is our spotlight this week. When I first met Toby, she was this insanely stylish editor at Instyle Magazine. Since then we’ve become great friends and she’s moved on from her editorial days to launching her own fabulously chic golf wear label. Check out her site at www.tobytuckergolf.com – I’ve never swung a club and that didn’t stop me from shopping like mad!
My second spotlight is artist, Aaron Wexler. Aaron is one of those individuals that makes me love my job. Everytime we get together, I get completely inspired. I was lucky enough to engage Aaron’s talents to design our windows— check out his site and see the incredible job he’s done for other clients like Bergdorf’s…..to die! His artwork exhibits around the world – I know you’ll be inspired too when you check him out…. www.aaronwexler.com
I discovered Reed a while back and absolutely fell in love with his photography – the way he worked with light and color immediately appealed to me. Reed’s traveled the world and his focus has been on quite serious subject matter. I hunted him down and convinced him to collaborate with us on a few projects – of a much less serious nature. Reed’s our spotlight this week and you can check out more of his work at www.reedyoung.com.
