I design a small collection of everyday items for men & women.
The line consists of shirts, bags and an assortment of accessories (bookmarks and stationery, travel wallets and piñatas, fabric belts and eyeglasses, decoupage ashtrays and leather lighter covers, beaded keyfobs and woven pencil cases, letterpress coasters and a travel-sized backgammon set).
The button-down shirts and sturdy canvas bags draw inspiration from materials that improve with age—two-ply cotton shirting and heavy cotton canvas. These straightforward shapes employ superior natural materials and thoughtful construction.
My label features the nine planets of our solar system with the Sun (as a tetherball) in the center. Leading scientists announced recently that Pluto no longer qualifies as a planet, so technically there should only be eight planets and the Sun, but I have a soft spot for Pluto so it has remained on the label.
