Guest Hunter, Maj Anya DeBear

Welcome..

Maj Anya DeBear

Maj Anya DeBear

Maj Anya DeBear, this week’s Guest Hunter. Maj Anya is a textile designer and artist based in New York City. She launched her line of luxe printed scarves, Ursidae, after finding out that her father was dying of cancer.  The prints are based on a series of tessellation drawings made by him in 1975, and his last wish to his family had been that they help share his designs with the public.  She considers Ursidae a family company, hence the name, which translates to ‘the family of bears’ in Latin.  All of Ursidae’s scarves are named after members of the DeBear family, or Maj Anya’s close circle of friends.

Maj Anya grew up on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, but is half Danish and spends time in Copenhagen whenever possible (she will happily give you a whole other list of favorite things for that city, if you ask nicely). She collects vintage scarves and kimonos, and hopes that her pieces will be coveted and then passed down from generation to generation, just as her father’s prints were passed on to her. As a Dane, Maj Anya’s ultimate style icon is Karen Blixen, and Maj Anya is occasionally known to don one of her scarves as a turban in an attempt to emulate her.

When she isn’t working, she enjoys board games, fantasizing about time travel and listening to music with a good string section. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT her super cool picks and some local spots we can’t wait to check out.

Opening Ceremony by A for Apple

A little late..

Opening Ceremony by A for Apple

Opening Ceremony by A for Apple

to the party on this one, but Opening Ceremony by A for Apple is just way too cute. I have to be honest I would probably never outfit my kid in these clothes (unless they were hand-me-downs) because I’d be flat out broke. BUT they sure are fun to look at and add to my ever-growing “wishlist.” Swoon!

Kitsuné Fall/Winter 2011

Jumping ahead to fall..

Kitsuné Fall/Winter 2011

Kitsuné Fall/Winter 2011

even though I am greatly enjoying the warm weather. I don’t know how I stumbled upon this, but I like the rugged yet polished look of the men’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection from Kitsuné. It’s a tribute to “Brokeback Mountain” and was inspired by the west American style from the 60’s. The high quality fabric used and the detailed tailoring are what make these garments exceptional. Carried in shops like Opening Ceremony and Mr. Porter, Kitsuné has also collaborated with some fine names like Yoshida, Petit Bateau, Flouzen and Pierre Hardy. Here are some more looks from Fall/Winter 2011:
