Weekly updates from BLDG 25

I took so many photos of this one wall in our Philly store, I felt like I needed to give it its own post.  There was so much to look at, it took my breath away.  Artwork, potted plants, memorabilia from around the world had my eyes darting back and forth, snapping away with my camera trying to capture it all. One of the coolest parts? Some of the artwork is actually for sale!

I came across these scarves on green eyed monster and I loved the story behind them so much – for anyone out there who, like me, suffers from seasonal depression, here’s a little ray of light :)

“I am always bewildered by the arrival of early autumn darkness. I travel around in my normal routines confused for weeks. This year I felt I needed to try harder to understand the transition. Was there some way I could prepare? Without even knowing it I found I was using my camera as a tool to dissect the final hours of illumination. I became fixated on capturing a momentary blanket of light, of all tones and colors, which I could hold and pull up around me when all I see is black. I wanted to feel the light. I needed to see the light. And now I feel ready. Come darkness, here we are again.”

This month’s featured jewelry designer is one of my personal favorites – Dannijo. The New York based label was founded by sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder, self-taught jewelry designers who learned how to wirework by playing with their father’s medical tools as kids. Their pieces are handmade using various metals – oxidized silver, gold and gunmetal – mixed with bold colorful elements like druzy quartz, crystals, aqua aura and pearls.

A combination of bohemian whimsy and old-world sophistication, their pieces are incredibly beautiful and eye-catching, making them a favorite among celebrities and fashion designers.

Their inspiration:

“For SS12 we were really inspired by Indonesian surf culture, western elements and Aztec artifacts — think masks, fossils and ancient jewelry dug up from the past. We wanted the collection to be really wearable and able to be stacked and layered as always so we had fun with color and silhouettes while keeping the collection very signature Dannijo. It’s sort of a modern take on remnants of the past.”

I love how the necklaces are styled with vintage tees and faux fur in our October catalog – on the left, the Stella Collar, and on the right, the Tribal Rhaise Pendant.

And the rings? The rings are out of this world!

A friend sent this to me the other day to check out and I thought it was such a neat concept – a photographer and textile designer collaborated on this shoot and it showcases both of their talents so beautifully! I love the juxtaposition of the fabrics alongside the photos of nature, they complement each other so perfectly.

Our operations coordinator is also getting married, and had the amazing idea to incorporate some of the beautiful quilted fabric from India that we use for lots of our store displays – by having it used to make one-of-a-kind clutches as gifts for her bridesmaids! She worked with her friend Paige, a local designer behind Christine Shirley, who uses scraps of old fabric or old vintage clothes that may never come back in style to make handbags, clutches and more.  Check out the amazing clutches she made with the quilted fabric!

ACB

All it took was one read through Annie Costello Brown’s bio and I was intrigued…very intrigued.

This month’s featured jewelry artist, she is the designer behind ACB – a line of hand-made pieces in materials including leather, bronze castings, vintage chains, natural shells and semi-precious stones. Her creativity and design sensibilities originated in her childhood, growing up in the  Sausalito houseboat community of the 1970s and 80s. This was a community of artists, musicians and crafters who established their own sort of counterculture in the Northern California bay, and nurtured her own resourcefulness and creativity.

sausalito-houseboats

sausalito-houseboats

sausalito-houseboats

The community still exists, but went through a period of intense struggle in the late 70s and 80s called the “House Boat Wars” that was between the houseboat community and wealthy developers that wanted them out. This no doubt was also influential on Annie Costello Brown’s upbringing and the work that she would one day create.

This history kept playing in my mind as I looked at the ACB pieces we are carrying – the eclipse necklace, with its combination of leather, chains and beads, the texture and blue beading of the cyanea necklace and the fierce looking linea blades necklace. I can see the influence of the Sausalito seas and unique architectural elements in the necklaces featured in our September catalog. The collection has something for everyone, ranging from bold statement pieces to delicate casual elegance, all with an underlying intrigue that speaks of turmoil, triumph and fierce individuality.

And just for you, here’s a little peek inside the ACB studio!

Our display team continues to blow my mind… for Fall they have turned our stores into an enchanted forest of color and texture.  Window screens crafted out of tree branches, sweater fragments, neon tape, yarn and other embellishments invite you into the store, where you are greeted by walls hung with embroidered canvas sacks, wooden flowers,  patchwork flannel canvases embellished with sequins and cutouts, and even a magical free people deer. Take a look!

One of our fp girls cut pieces of her own sweater to use in the branch screen, making a cute crop top!

I love the colorful branches! Some are wrapped in fabric or string and some are painted. There are so many different fun combinations you can try!

Some of the canvas sacks are stuffed with sticks, while others hang flat on the walls. I love the bright colors and patterns of the embroidery!

This might be my favorite part – wooden flowers are taped in rows to the walls with neon pink duct tape! I am definitely thinking about doing this at my apartment.

One store made their own little “barn” with wood and drew on it with chalk :)

pretty rad bike.

And last but certainly not least… the deer! Each store has one, and it arrived at the store as a plain statue which they then paint and embellish.  So amazing! I love that each one is unique and special.
