Urban Summer

Pamela Barish

Stuck in the city this summer? Get some homegrown style inspiration! We're featuring crisp whites, in lovely lace, cotton, and linen. With shapes that skim curves in fabrics that breathe, all it takes is a little urban exploration to create a vacation in your neighborhood! The heat of the season inspired us to get outside and do a little adventuring... scroll down to see what we love about Venice Beach.

Venice is known for its free spirit. When we opened up our doors on Abbot Kinney back in 2003, it was filled with a diverse community of artists. Layering subversive details over the classic architecture of timeless fashion is our ultimate message. To see signs of those seemingly bygone days of grit, simply check out the skate park, the graffiti wall, or even the boardwalk. They are rife with the vitality of continued creative expression. 

We have always valued style above trend, this is why we constantly reevaluate and update our classic shapes. While the details may change, the spirit of effortless elegance remains. Venice is constantly in flux. To see how it goes about its orderly chaos, check out some local spots like Rose Cafe, the new Erewhon, and Menotti's Coffee. 

Venice, above all, is beautiful. From the prewar bungalows to the romantic canals, it is a verdant landscape filled with activity. The streets themselves are galleries, and open to everyone. We simply couldn't see ourselves designing anywhere else! 

Graduation Celebration!

Pamela Barish

Pamela recently got back from a trip to New York to celebrate step-son Jackson Dill's graduation from Bard College in upstate New York. What did she pack in her suitcase? Why, her own designs of course! Here she cuddles up to partner Laddie John Dill in our Cordelia wrap dress, posing with son Jake Faulkner. 

For the ceremony, Pamela wore our perennial favorite, the Tennessee Williams. This one is a cotton version, perfect for beating that East Coast summer heat! She pairs the dress with shoes and sunglasses from Mona Moore and necklace from LFrank Jewelry

While in the area, Pamela stopped and visited with longtime friend and client Jennifer Grey in Greenwich Village. Thanks for the fun times New York! Congratulations to all grads in the class of 2015 this year!
