Which colors look best on you? Shades of red, cadmium reds, are the colors that look best on me. They have a little more orange in them, cinnamon or orange. I love black, white and acid greens and dark indigos.
My teenage style icon? I was totally into Mod. I loved Twiggy. I loved all the English music that happened then. I had a Sassoon haircut and white Go-Go boots that I wore to the Cow Palace to see the Beatles, and I screamed my heart out.
Felted & Sporty I love this architectural poncho with its trendy sweatshirt detailing. Boiled Wool gives it a clean modern shape. Zip it up—and feel warm and cozy! Shop >
Sparkly & Whimsical Shimmering edges, playful tassels. This lightweight wool scarf is generously sized so you can wrap it around a sleeveless party dress—or wear it during the day in so many ways! Shop >
The Cashmere Tee The perfect glamorous simple tee. Cashmere in a featherweight knit makes me feel so special. I want all the colors available. The care is easy—just hand wash. Available in late January.
Polka Dotty Dots on spots and spots on dots. The perfect Dr. Seuss socks! I collect playful socks to wear with my booties and sneakers. Shop >
Graphic Design These graphic stripes are designed to peek out underneath sweaters and tops-we added two extra inches to make this Organic Linen Jersey tank longer for layering. Available in late December.
A Modern Bond I feel sleek in this Bonded Fleece jacket. It bonds two fabrics—cotton nylon and fleece—for a streamlined silhouette. It's a great fabric to design with because you don't need a lining. Shop >
