MARAIS GIRL

Jeanne Damas is that inimitably French girl. Love her style, and have seriously fallen in love with her charming photo diary blog (she shoots with film!). These photos make me want to jump on a plane and get off somewhere on a beach :) And also feature her as a Marais Gril if we could be so lucky!

INSPIRATION: SILK

Images from here and here.

I am loving printed silk and just realized my obsession after a glance through the images on my desktop. The first image is from Reece Solomon’s (of Reece Hudson) New York pad. It’s such an elegant, cool way of incorporating tie dye into your home. Not to mention, you could totally DIY it. So chic!

#SISTERSISTER

So many posts about the Olsens this week as they announced their first “adult” perfume. Elizabeth & James will launch Nirvana White and Nirvana Black this January, and you can only get it at $ephora . . . Read the full story here.

It’s pretty incredible that they have two thriving and cool brands when you think of their roots . . . not many child stars go on to make waves in another industry, let alone remain successful in the entertainment world.

HELEN FRANKENTHALER


We are defining (or shall I say redefining) who the Marais Girl is. The initial part of this process was to answer questions about her. Some of them I expected and had a very clear and immediate answer for (how old is she, what does she do for a living, where does she shop?), and others were very specific and a bit trickier to nail down. My method for finding these answers was to start collecting visual references from books, blogs, old scrap books, and anywhere I could find bits and pieces I felt conveyed a part of who the Marais Girl is. I collected a few hundred images and then edited them down until they visually described the Marais Girl.

A few paintings of Helen Frankenthaler’s made it into the final selection. Each one is so effortlessly beautiful, which is an aspect of her work she has been criticized for. But to me all of her work is highly emotional and complex. It is art you’d want in your home; makes you happy; energizes you; and is interesting to look at for years and years. And that is the art the Marais Girl dreams about adding to her collection. If she could choose a piece (hell yes!)?

Seeing the Moon On A Hot Summer Day, 1987
More of my inspiration images coming to the blog soon.

BEHIND THE SCENES

Now that the fall collection is in full swing, we thought we’d take a look back at our behind-the-scenes snapshots and pay a few well deserved thanks. Photographer Daeja Fallas and her crew of Hawaiian babes were the best partners in crime we could ask for. Anat Fritz worked her usual magic with the props and wardrobe styling. And model extraordinaire Courtney James was just about the sweetest (and wittiest) girl we’ve ever encountered. Perhaps our favorite campaign to date?

Thank you to all who contributed!
