celebrate good times

me and the hubby celebrating

last week was really something, sort of a festive blur! with the eileen fisher celebration for two full days, a day shoot with time out new york + a few other special interludes i will report on later, made keeping up with the daily work load impossible!  a little report: hanging with the eileen fisher gang + grantees was such a inspiration…people are doing good things!

giving a thank you speech, i am very thankful!

i also had such a fun time with  two of my most fave loyale supporters, meredith +  su at a little rager in soho on thursday night.  see my starlets here in what i call drenched in semina + it is just the way i like it…

semina mania!

eco-nista goes int’l: su beyazit

 su in barcelona wearing the tara blouse

su was my dreamy intern from 2 summers ago, yet we remain close; she still joins the loyale team here & there, always adding her creative flair.  now she is off jaunting around barcelona soaking up the arts & culture scene – this is what i call a classy spring break.  how lucky for us that she brought along her spring 09 tara blouse in the semina print & has styled it so charmingly here…now we can tag along & live vicariously…thanks su!

is it me?

alex mcqueen from style.com

or is there really something wrong with fashion designers sometimes?  at this juncture, when everyone is pooping their pants about the future of the economy & the world, are big, scary, laquered lips the cure for our ails?  i just don’t see this as a soothing balm for the consternation of the well- being of society as we know it; if anything this begs the question, is suicide an option?   perhaps it goes against the code to criticize my fellow people, but frankly this is why i became a designer in the first place.  fashion should be relevant, meaningful & of the moment, yet most of the time the clothing & the messages they send are from a different planet.  i don’t want to squelch freedom of design, but the biggest question i grapple with when i see something like this is, when does creativity become ugly?

spring 09 has sprung

loyale-hermosa-bikini

one of my favorite things lately is finding quotes that express exactly what i am feeling in much more eloquent manner.  take this quote from robert frost, “the sun was warm but the wind was chill. you know how it is with an april day.”  now i know it is not quite april, but this weekend in new york gave each of us who live here a taste of what we crave – spring.   we enjoyed a balminess & warmth that was somewhat deceptive, as the sun shone all was delightful, however with each passing cloud that brisk chill was unavoidable.  regardless, i was grateful for the short respite from winter.  and am even more thrilled with the fact that the loyale spring 2009 collection is in full bloom & now available for one & all to enjoy!  check out the new web shop & site, there are a lot of neat things going on with even more ways you can participate!  http://www.loyaleclothing.com/

outside inside

blizzard march 09 ny times pic
the blizzard has been beautiful to watch from my office window.  i contemplated hibernating at home, but the reality is i have piles & piles of work to do, so i made the wintry journey.  oh whoa is me, the heat seems to be broken in my office so my little feet are now like ice blocks.  there really is nothing like an end of the winter storm to remind you that spring is still miles around the bend.   as i go to make my way back out into the slushy city to enjoy a quiet evening at home, i imagine that i am at this beachy locale wearing loyale’s hermosa bikini far from the snow & bustle of the city…
tropical delight
eco-chic peace!  xoxo, jenny
