There’s something awfully cool about the purpley-pink of this Jesse Kamm dress—especially with those burgundy booties. —erica

Inspirationale: Jesse Kamm Meets Her Muse

The first day of spring is just under a month away—time to refresh, reinvent…or, you know, maybe just re-paint the living room and buy some new sandals. Whatever your modus operandi, a little motivation never hurt, so we’re asking some of our awesome designers to share what’s inspiring them right now. First up: artist-cum-designer Jesse Kamm, who is a big fan of not trying too hard, as her line, choc-full of easy, effortless pieces, proves. —keely thomas-menter

“I met Debbie Harry backstage at a show. She is still insanely beautiful. She pumps me up. She is one of those women, who has “IT.” It isn’t contrived. A stylist did not make her that way—she just is. That is the thing that inspires me most about a person—an originality, an effortlessness. There are few true icons that I think I would go gaga over. But give "Rapture" a listen—you will be driven to love!” —jesse kamm

In Tune: Jesse Kamm

In honor of fashion week and all the new-collections brouhaha, we’ve asked Of a Kind designers to share the songs that found their way into their spring 2013 designs. Oh, and: These music picks come with sneak peeks of said collections. Keep up with “In Tune” posts here.

Listened to HAIM’s ‘Forever’ all summer long—it is the best music being made right now, in my humble opinion! Katrina Dickson and I photographed the girls in this band for my fall collection, and I fell hard. And about my upcoming spring/summer collection: Think vacation all day, everyday.” jesse kamm

Mother Lode: How Jesse Kamm Preps Her Son for Panamanian Rainstorms

Of all of the downright trying things about having a kid, traveling has got to be at the top of the list—strollers through airport security, diaper changes in plane bathrooms, etc., etc. But that hardly stops Jesse Kamm for packing up her little boy and all his gear for regular trips to their home in Punta Carenero, an island in Panama. In honor of Mother’s Day, we asked her to share one thing she never continent-hops without.

"I love Kamik kid’s rain boots. There are made in in Canada, and Julien goes through a pair every four to six months. He is breaking in a new pair, in preparation for his summer in the rainforest. Stomping in puddles—and keeping fire ants off of your feet—are key to happy days.” —jesse

We had a pretty rockin’ 2011, and I have a distinct feeling that 2012 is going to be EVEN BETTER. To celebrate the year to end all years (heh), we put together a sweet little calendar—designed by Anna Akawie using a fantastic Jesse Kamm print that also graces this here sweatshirt. Download it here, hang it in your cube or on your fridge, and think of us fondly. —erica

There is a time when we would have turned up our noses at a crewneck sweatshirt. But I like to think that even during that hoodie-obsessed era we would have been able to appreciate the wonder that is this Jesse Kamm design. The cut is slim, the print is graphic (and navy!), and the cotton is organic. Basically, there’s nothing not to love. —erica
