and very sweet line of clothes for little ones. The London company, Deluna was started in 2010 by Luca, a mother of two. The line is inspired by travel and each collection is available in limited quantities. So when the fabric runs out, they’re on to the next design. Silhouettes are classic with a modern twist. Adorable, and with the limited production, likely to not be rocked by all the other kids on the playground.

live in those pants. Well, pretty much the entire Christopher Waller AW11 collection actually.  The London-based designer drew inspiration for fall from the minimalist artists of the late 50’s and 60’s and his pieces reflect exactly that.  Luxurious fabrics, that are beautifully made with just the right amount of detail and very, very wearable. Simple, super chic and perfect for transitioning from day to night.  Can’t wait to see what he’s got planned for Spring 2012.

Beams+ Mountain Parka

Beams+ Mountain Parka, $595

Beams+ Mountain Parka, $595

my dad had a jacket like this a while back and I know I like it. Unionmade is selling this highly functional jacket by the Japanese brand Beams+. We know Unionmade is a store out west that’s all about classic, sturdy, well-made items and that they carry super legit brands like Woolrich Woolen Mills, Billykirk and Freemans Sporting Club. And if you haven’t heard of Beams+, you should learn their name too. The brand launched in 1999 and is about way more than just clothes – it’s a lifestyle that includes music, art and interior design. This 1970’s-inspired parka has updated details like a draw-cord hem, ergonomic hand-warmer pockets and high performance fabrics that make it waterproof and breathable. The result is pretty much the perfect piece for outdoor activities, not so bad for wondering around the city either.  There’s a reason this guy’s back.

Nomia

Straight out of NYC..

Nomia, Fall 2011

Nomia, Fall 2011

comes Yara Flinn’s line, Nomia a collection of downtown chic pieces that are sleek and sophisticated. The styles are easy and very wearable with interesting detail, so they’re kind of classics with a twist. A simple black dress with a mesh patched back or a top with side cut-outs.  Flinn is all about simple silhouettes, cool cuts, unexpected details, and great fits.  She doesn’t go overboard with crazy prints either, each season you’ll find lots of solids in muted colors that aren’t going to cause major wardrobe regret down the road.  The edgy details make Nomia anything but ordinary, so get on it, because she’s not going anywhere.
