Summer is a great time to travel and have fun!
We are always making new pieces and finding inspiration everywhere we go.

On a recent trip to New York City I visited the MET and saw some amazing ancient Egyptian jewelry. These examples of craft and skill are astounding. Many of these pieces could be worn today and look totally new and inovative. 

Currently showing at the MET Punk: Chaos to Couture. This show examines many things about the influence of punk in high fashion. It seems every magazine I pick up features an article about this exhibit and the questions it brings up. Is punk dead? Was it ever? Is it an idea verses a look? Or like the Egyptians jewelry was something brought into the world that still is relevant and thought provoking?

The exhibition design in Chaos to Couture is amazing and shows a reflection of fashion culture from the recent past and today. Red carpet and runway looks paired with slowed footage of punk legends such as the Sex Pistols and Blondie set the stage for fashion and street culture.
