Trés Bien Shop
said it before and we’ll say it again, Trés Bien Shop is a standout, and a very cool store based out of Sweden. Not to mention, they’ve also got an online component as well as a must read blog. It’s a place to go for the guy who wants to develop a more refined style, and for the girl who wants to steal her boyfriends clothes. They offer brands and designers like Our Legacy, Beams Plus, Yuketen, Mark McNairy and countless more. And if I had the time, I could spend a lot of it here just reading about the designers they feature. Since this is the biggest shopping weekend of the year, no better place to start then here.
in this tool set is in the simplicity of the design. This eco-friendly kit is made from sustainably harvested new growth beech wood. It includes a LED flashlight, a bubble level, a folding ruler, and a screwdriver with interchangeable tips. Designed by Jonas Damon, who also makes this awesome alarm dock. Available at Areaware, which is a shop stocked with stand-out products by local talent.
Vestite y Andate
Vestite y Andate. Lola y Maria, a great shop in the Lower East Side, did a post on the South American designers a few months ago and since then it’s totally been on my radar. These little dresses look like such easy pieces – great with layers as a jumper in the colder weather or as is in the warmer months. Other top picks would be their swimwear with ruched detail, elastic-waist shorts, and sleeveless denim shirts – all with good details that are different but not too out there. Their website is in Spanish (and I don’t speak a word), so beyond what I’ve said, I can’t tell you too much more – except that they have 2 shops in Buenos Aires, so check em out!

Ace & Jig Baja Hoodie
when I came across Ace & Jig at a market appointment last week. The Brooklyn-based label was started by 2 friends who left their jobs in fashion to start families and eventually decided to collaborate on this great line. The fabrics are sourced in India and are a medium-weight regardless of the season. It’s so colorful with bolt stripes and patterns – a refreshing change from a lot of what I’ve been seeing.. super vibrant and quite casual. If I had it my way, I would have bought the entire line! They are still fairly hard to find online, so here’s a list of stores that carry the brand.
