Sweden’s best export is back for fall 2014.

Known for their easy and understated basics, you’ll love this season’s coats, sweaters and trousers. We’re big fans already of the Poppy coat and the Philly sweater (it’s so amazing we’ve already sold two during this September heatwave!).

Hope is a Swedish fashion label created in 2001, by the designers Ann Ringstrand and Stefan Söderberg.  It begun as a creative discussion between the two friends, who are both extremely passionate and interested in well-made utility wear.

Hope’s first Stockholm flagship opened in 2006 and the line quickly became known for its classic designs.  Fans of the brand love Hope’s trousers, outerwear and knits.

AAFW14Lookbook 0285 AAFW14Lookbook 0295

End of summer means the arrival of fall winter 2014 collections. Shop now for the first wave of the shop’s new deliveries; new fall winter pieces from Black Crane, A Piece Apart, Mary Meyer and Study New York.

Pictured, our fave pieces from Apiece Apart. 

APIECE APART is a line of elevated basics – building block pieces that are as versatile as the woman wearing them. The label is brought to life through clean lines, chic, simple shapes, impeccable tailoring and beautiful fabrics. It balances the simple with the sophisticated; the classic with the modern. APIECE APART was born during a trip to West Texas for the designers’ 30th birthdays. Inspired by the austere and beautiful landscape, Starr Hout and Laura Cramer conceived of a simplified wardrobe, one that could be packed into a single bag – simple items that could be mixed and matched to go anywhere and do anything.

Art Teacher Chic – Study New York.

We love Study New York’s ikat print shirt dress which we couldn’t agree more represents what style.com dubs “Art-teacher chic”—loose tunics, big ceramic necklaces, modest shoes—which has become the go-to uniform for fashion-y women who are done with overdone.

New York-based clothing label Study, is an ethical contemporary womenswear brand produced in New York City using sustainable materials.

Study is an ethical contemporary womenswear label based in Brooklyn, NY.  Study aims to make seasonless clothing locally and ethically without subscribing to the traditional fashion calendar.  Their goal is to create the ideal wardrobe for their ideal individuals (you). Study believes the clothes we wear should be well-made using quality materials, and the hands that manipulate those materials should be respected and cared for.

Study’s 2.1 Ikat shirdress (pictured) is available in store now.

Vladimir Karaleev – Berlin Fashion Week SS14

This season, Fawn is all over Vladimir Karaleev’s SS14 collection.

Elegant and subtle, the focus is on textiles, layers and depth, and producing geometrically shaped garments.

The collection consists of combinations of white, grey and soft dusty pinks which shimmer gold when caught in the light…exactly what we’re feeling for summer.

And introducing Rashmi Varma.

Fawn is excited to carry Rashmi Varma’s first collection for spring summer 2014.  A dear friend of ours, it’s a collection of minimal dreamyness; a new women’s wear line that explores traditional India through a modern lens. Drawing from endless ways to drape, fold and pleat unstitched garments such as the sari, the dhoti and the odhni, Spring Summer 2014 focuses on pure materials, human hands and wearable forms.

Collaborating with artisans, the collection utilizes several hand craft techniques; khadi, chikankari and dabka embroidery which are offset by digitally printed graphics. Working with silks, cottons and jerseys in a palette of whites, blacks and reds, a sense of elegant ease pervades the collection with just the right amount of downtown edge.

Made & Crafted in India.

Behind the Scenes: The Style of Momo Suzuki of Black Crane.

We are huge fans of Black Crane and LA based designer Momo Suzuki. We love her easy and modern pieces, and we’re especially fond of this season’s linen breezy collection.

Refinery 29 tours Momo’s lovely home, which reflects the designer’s amazing style and collection. We love Black Crane pieces because they really are for everyday living.

The Black Crane spring summer 14 collection is now available in store.
