We have now introduced Curated Collections, which we think is one gigantic, good idea, where we collaborate with brilliant designers, some you will have heard of and some that are newly discovered, to bring out limited edition designs exclusive to us.
Over breakfast in New York we got together with these partners, and press, to celebrate this launch…. Swipe through the images above to see a glimpse of Jonathan Adler, Figue, DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, who came all the way from Denmark, ANNA by RabLabs and Finlay & Co., who came from London, Hat Attack and Holicow from Los Angeles, Eberjey from Miami, Dempsey & Carroll from across the road, and Bird & Knoll from across the other side of the world, Australia.
Thank you all for being a part of this. And to my super-sonic friend, Brooke Shields, who hosted this.

Finlay & Co.
These frames, exclusively designed for us by friends in London were lovingly handmade by artisans in the foothills of the Italian Alps. They have now traveled to give us shade, wherever in the world we may be.

Inspired by a centuries old Indian process of hand block printing on cotton. Made in small batches, which dry by the warmth of the Rajasthan sun, resulting in slight differences in color and pattern, which of course we love.

Hats, being the rare accessory that allows one to hide and stand out at the same time, are a must. These are hand crafted on carved wood blocks collected over time, cut, sewn, and trimmed by friends in their Bronx studio who are dedicated to preserving the craft of traditional hat-making.
DAY Birger et Mikkelsen
Wonderful Danish friends designed these clothes for us. Inspired by their world travels… they have cleverly merged the ancient art of patterns, prints, embroidery, and trim of Asia and India into very modern designs. These silhouettes combined with ethnic details have been my go-to favorites forever.
Bird & Knoll
These luxurious oversized cashmere-blend scarves from Bird & Knoll of Australia, are simply wearable art. Each of these three scarves, made exclusively for us, is printed with one of my snaps from some of my favorite places in London, Oxford, and of course my mother’s house The Grove.
ANNA by RabLabs
Inspired by viewing gemstones through a looking glass, Anna has layered these opulent images onto hand-polished Lucite nesting boxes, (I grew up with Lucite all around, my father adored it) creating pieces that express the emotion of the stones themselves. For our collaboration we were inspired by Italian Alabaster and the incredible patterns that emerged when we played with the scale of each stone.
Eberjey’s belief that the layer worn next to the heart should express happiness, love and confidence…and all of the things that make a woman truly beautiful. A tomboy at heart I love that these PJs borrow from the boys but are designed just for us girls.
Dempsey & Carroll
I chose to collaborate with Dempsey & Carroll to introduce my own line of very serious stationery, combined with a large dose of fun. Stationery Engravers since 1878 and handmade in the US, Dempsey & Carroll is committed to craft, exacting standards, and meticulous attention to detail. Long Live the hand written letter.
A nutty, beloved friend for many years how could we resist combining Jonathan’s impeccable craftsmanship and irreverent luxury with my rather mad daydreams. We created a line of very swank decorative trays and boxes with my signature goodluck beetle and gobs of gold.
Stephanie and I share a love of travel to crazy destinations and a global gypsy jet set spirit (we also share a passion for sausage dogs). In founding her company Figue, Stephanie shares the talents of artisans around the world, and the results are statement pieces that are both luxurious and bohemian.
