Graphic in G. Kero

Graphic in G. Kero

Created as a result of artistic passion and consumer frustration, G. Kero is now a brand modeled by celebrities and fashionistas alike. The love child of artist Marguerite Bartherotte, the French bohemian began painting designs straight onto t-shirts when her brother was dissatisfied with the t-shirt selection around him.

G. KERO SUPER JUNGLE

The brand has since grown into a worldwide presence, but stays true to its origins by using bright, painted designs. The name G. Kero gains its origin from the short film, Giselle Kérozène, a name which Batherotte herself has since adopted as a pseudonym.

So take a note from stars like Elle Fanning and Cara Delevingne and keep it casual. Pair your graphic G. Kero top with denim shorts and a leather jacket. Or if you’re looking to make a bolder statement, follow in the footsteps of Kate Moss and keep the rest of your outfit black. Our favorite model rocked her graphic top with leather leggings, a black shag jacket and a black clutch.

The kids may be on summer break, but your busy life never stops no matter the season. So stay prepared for hectic days of warm weather errands with the perfect on-the-go outfit.

Start your ensemble with a mixture of denim: white jeans and a blue denim tank top don’t clash because of their different coloring. Add a colorful, light-weight cardigan to help protect from the sun. Use minimal golden jewelry and a brown messenger bag to keep your look warm and vibrant. Lastly, don’t forget to pair your bag with brown sandals to keep your look consistent and comfortable!

Despite what the calendar says, spring has taken it's time getting here.  But - and let's not jinx ourselves - the forecast is optimistically dry for the next few days, which means we're eager to bring out our bare legs, sandals and our favorite spring/summer workhorse: the maxi dress.

The best maxi hits just around your ankles (less chance of ungraceful tripping) to show off your carefully selected sandals (or sneakers) keeping things chic and modern. 

From L to R: Vince cotton sweater, Red Valentino cotton maxi dress, Rene Escobar 18k gold and sterling silver bangles, Annabel Ingall cross-body bag .

It would be a no-brainer to pair this Red Valentino beauty with a denim, military or even leather jacket, but we love the play on proportion with an oversized, cotton sweater and casual cross-body bag.  Finish the look off with delicate, suede slides and a messy top-knot to keep things casual.

Snow Day

Snow Day

What a winter! Here in the PNW we've experienced record snow fall and storm after storm, making for some serious winter weather.  As much as we'd like to be thinking ahead to spring, it's a hard thing to focus on when it's so so chilly out!  Lucky for us we've got a spot of sunshine when it comes to our outerwear options - specifically in Mercantile favorite Herno - these down jackets are available in nearly every color of the rainbow with a silhouette to fit every figure.

The Italian based company boasts an ecologically sustainable factory - always a plus in our book - as well as ethically sourced down, all finished with the highest Italian craftsmanship making the chicest and most lightweight puffer we've ever seen.

From L to R: Derek Lam 10 Crosby woven cross-body, Rag & Bone "Salute" stripe top, Current/Elliott jeans, Herno puffer jacket, Frame jeans, Amina Rubinacci tweed jacket, Derek Lam 10 Crosby leather cross-body with metal hardware and Antonelli Firenze "Charlotte" shirt.

These jackets are not just for the weekend, although we love to pair them with denim and a cashmere sweater.  The pieces can easily be elevated to evening, they are Italian after all, with a cigarette pant and crisp white shirt.  Although you'll be happy with one, we find it hard to resist a new Herno puffer, especially when the colors are so delicious!
