Weather Vain: Minneapolis, Minnesota - 69 and Clear

image

Last week, Claire and I went to Minneapolis. We love ourselves a Midwest work trip—and, somehow, I’d never been to MN. So, my question is, when do I get to go back? —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A ring by Kelly Wearstler that makes any outfit, really.

+ A Veda jacket that would be a total hit on the Target campus.

+ A wallet from Eayrslee with the sort of no-nonsense design the crew at The Foundry Home Goods would appreciate.

+ This Dealtry scarf + dinner outside at Borough before nice weather’s a thing of the past = a G.D. perfect night.

+ A Tibi dress that’s as cheery as the (amazing) cloud wallpaper at Marvel Bar.

+ Dream boots, really, from Loeffler Randall.

More of this! Bunches more!

Next Level: Smiley

image

Hey, y’all: The grin is in. (Not that that would surprise Bobby McFerrin for a second.) Here’s how to put a smile on your body and, I’m sure, your face. —erica

LEVEL I: Bing Bang keeps things super-subtle (and, obviously, adorable).

LEVEL II: Happiness is this Anya Hindmarch scarf, no?

LEVEL III: A single earring from Alison Lou with at least 2x the charm.

LEVEL IV: Markus Lupfer knows that some days require something more intense—this sweater's like wardrobe prozac.

If this made you happy, so will this.

6 Scarf-Wearing Icons Natasha Chambers Sweats

From Audrey to Bey.

Seems like there isn’t a harder-working accessory than a breezy scarf—that is, if you know how to wear one. Natasha Chambers of Lissy Verkade most definitely gets how outfit-changing one of these suckers can be, and she’s rounded up some other wrap stars who sell the look in a BIG way. —jane gauger

image

Audrey Hepburn
“She is so chic, so effortless. Who doesn’t love her?  She was a very natural scarf-wearer. She could wear them casually in the washer-woman style, like in the picture, or as cute neck ties like French woman pull-off so well.”

image

Rihanna
“She has an elegance that is fun and quirky. I love how she has multiple ways of wearing scarves as head wraps—she can pull off a graceful turban with a cheeky bow. Is there anything she can’t do?”

image

Cary Grant
“Such a classy and handsome gent with great style. A big time scarf-wearer, he could wear the ascot in a very dapper way that’s very do-able today.”

image

Beyoncé
“She uses scarves to add color and print to her outfits. She is also a wonder at various fantastic head wraps.”

image

Loie Fuller
“She’s a pioneering late 19th century dancer known for her skirt dance. She is amazing. The way she makes fabrics move around her inspires me immensely. I love old crackly footage of her. Movement in the material is so key—it needs to flow and make you want to reach out and touch it.”

image

Johnny Depp
“He wears his scarves in a very bohemian way. It always looks very relaxed and unstudied. He’s obviously very comfortable with his style.”

Rock Natasha’s rad scarf like one of these six now!

Natasha Chambers Turns Her Vacations Into Textiles

Come on—ya ready to hit the road?!

image

Natasha Chambers has been all over the map—for real. And these days, her travels do double-duty: The things she spots outta town feed straight into her dreamy scarf line Lissy Verkade. Just get a load of some of the awesome trips she’s taken—and the textile designs they’ve inspired. —jane gauger

California Coast & Desert

image

“For our honeymoon two years ago, Olly and I procured a Winnebago in San Francisco. We traveled through the fog to Santa Cruz, Big Sur, Santa Barbara—all the famous surf spots—down to Encinitas and San Diego. I was obsessed with the skies on this trip.”

image“Afterwards, I compiled all the pictures and montaged them to make the print on my Sky Scarf.”

image

“One highlight from our honeymoon trip was getting off the coast and traveling to the desert to Joshua Tree National Park. We had the most amazing time clamoring on the rocks in incredible light. The place has such energy.”

image

“When the long shadows come out as the sun goes down, it’s so special. It inspired one of my favorite illustrations, which I also made into a silk scarf.”

India

image

“I went to India when I was 18. I traveled all over with my sister, Yolanda.

We first stayed at my friend’s father’s house in a tiny village with a beautiful valley. He hadn’t been there for a few years, and when we opened his house as the sun was going down, we realized in horror that it was swarming with spiders! We got used to them.”

image

“My scarves are printed in India now, and the last time I went back was for a month six years ago. I’ve wanted to make a documentary on the craftspeople. I will go back again soon, I hope.”

Costa Rica

image

“Olly and I have been going to Costa Rica for the last five years. The southern part of the country, where we have been going recently, has the highest bio diversity in the world, and you are literally surrounded by flora and fauna. The insects are really bold and have awesome patterns.”

image

“I love when animals have big markings to warn off predators and make them look fierce. This is where I got the inspiration for my Eye of the Butterfly print.”

Couple Up: Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet

image

These two never met a pattern they didn’t like. I mean, to get inside their closets…oh, wait: That’s exactly what it’s like to be Zoe Kravitz, that beautiful creature. Damn her. —erica

Lenny Kravitz: A loud Yarnz scarf, a leather jacket from Billy Reid, and striped pants by Neil Barrett.

Lisa Bonet: A colorful Growing Jewelry necklace, a floral patchwork shirt from Markus Lupfer, and Saturdays sunglasses.

For more old favorites, head this way.

Next Level: Bananas

image

If you—like monkeys and Rachel Zoe—love bananas, here’s your chance to wear them. (Yes, yes, you can keep putting them in your smoothies, too.) —erica

LEVEL I: Depending on how you tie this Alexa Sophia scarf, the print can be obvious or abstracted.

LEVEL II: If these Mother of Pearl slip-ons don’t say tropical getaway, I dunno what does.

LEVEL III: These Faris earrings have a certain geometric flair that feels straight-up fresh.

LEVEL IV: Aaaand, thanks to Carven, the fruit goes Palm Beach prep.

Get your “Next Level” on!
