Designer to know: G. Kero

Designer to know: G. Kero

If you've walked by the store lately and peeked in the front window, you've probably noticed the newest collection that we're all going wild about.

G. Kero

Marguerite Bartherotte - an artist and musician - initially created custom, hand painted t-shirts for friends while she was a student studying animation and drawing.  The brand, G. Kero, developed naturally from those one-of-a-kind, raw edged t-shirts to a curated and colorful collection that includes shirts, dresses, shorts, jackets and skirts.

Inspired by music, her hometown Cap Ferret, wild animals and a general Joie de Vivre, Marguerite creates each print with the garment in mind.  Although they could be considered "statement" pieces, the styles are easy to wear and integrate into your spring wardrobe.  Denim, of all washes and colors, is a natural partner to vibrant pattern, whether you throw a jean jacket over a dress or tuck a button down shirt into your favorite high waist jeans.

The artistically rendered illustrations transform every day, cotton garments into wearable art, and what do you know?  We were just looking to expand our collection.

2015 Wardrobe Detox

2015 Wardrobe Detox

It's January - everyone is partied out from the holidays - too much booze, too many sweets and too many snacks.  We all know what that means: it's time for a little detox.  While we're cleansing our bods with green smoothies and extra miles at the gym, we thought it would be a great opportunity to clean out our closets to reassess and restock.

WARDROBE DETOX

T-SHIRTS

After a year of layering your favorite tissue tees under sweaters and jackets they are bound to be worse for wear.  It's time to replace those well loved basics with some fresh silhouettes.  We always like to have a gray, white and black option on hand.  And don't forget to replace your Breton stripe tee as well.

JEANS

Although blue jeans only get better with age, black and white denim can start to look drab after too many wears.  A new pair of high waisted skinnies in black and a slouchy pair in white (we always like to size up with those) will instantly make your wardrobe feel fresh again.

SOMETHING TO MAKE YOU SMILE

It's a new year and you deserve to treat yourself to a new piece that simply makes you happy and excited for Spring.  Because after all that holiday shopping for everyone else, it sure is nice to buy something for you.

Now that you've detoxed your closet those green smoothies and a little extra gym time doesn't seem so bad.
