Tech (Design) Crush Thursday: Swissmiss
Let us introduce you to Tina Roth Eisenberg, also known as swissmiss. Originally from Switzerland, Tina came to New York after finishing her studies in Geneva and Munich to pursue a career in design in 1999. After working at many high-end NYC design firms and assisting in the design of the award-winning Visual Thesaurus, Tina started a personal visual archive called swissmiss. Years later swissmiss has grown into a popular design journal, with over 1 million unique visitors a month. “Influenced by renowned Swiss design and a lot of fresh air,” Tina is known for her clean, minimalist, less is more look. In addition to running the swissmiss design blog, Tina teaches, runs a Brooklyn-based collaborative workspace called Studiomates, organizes a monthly lecture series called CreativeMornings, and is the investor of the app TuexDeux, and recently set out to change the world of temporary Tattoos with her latest project, Tattly. Now a resident of Brooklyn with her husband and kids, Tina recently spoke at TYPO SF, where she discussed taking one’s personal projects seriously. Not only does she have great taste, but gives great advice as well.

Fashion Icon Friday: Olivia Palermo
From reality star on the show The City, to American socialite and fashion icon, we adore Olivia Palermo. The daughter of wealthy real estate developer Douglas Palermo and interior designer Lynn Hutchings, Palermo grew up between the Upper East Side of New York City and Greenwich, Connecticut. After interning at Diane Von Furstenberg and Elle, Olivia went on to become a model and acting member of the Friends Committee of New Yorkers For Children and joining the committee of Operation Smile.
Since then, Olivia has been featured on numerous magazine covers including New York Magazine, as well as in the pages of Vogue and Elle, to name a few. Her simple, polished style has gotten her photographed on every corner, from Los Angeles to Paris. Now Olivia can be seen in the front row of the biggest fashion shows in the industry, as well as on magazine stands worldwide. She even lends her tasteful eye to Piperlime as one of their four celebrity stylists.

With temperatures dropping and rain failing here in NYC (and office windows wide-open) we are in desperate need of a statement coat suitable for the weather we’re facing! Our founder, Liza, came across this glorious Theory Shearling Coat and we have to agree, it’s just fabulous. 

We can’t wait to wrap ourselves in that beauty! If we have to suffer through the cold seasons, might as well do it looking completely chic!

Team Tuesdays… on Tumblr.
Yesterday, we spent some time prepping for our The Buddha Walks into a Bar book launch event that’s going down later this week at Blind Barber—by learning how to tie bowties! It involved a lot of Youtubing, and a minor scene involving an outcry for experienced bowtie tie-ers around the office.
Our client, online menswear brand Combat Gent, is providing custom-made neckwear for the event, so we gotta represent.
If you’re in NYC, come join us on Thursday night!

Pop-Ups Monday!

Pop-Ups Monday: Monday August 13

With summer winding down, it’s important to appreciate the last few weeks of fantastic weather. As a tribute to the end of the summer sun, we’re highlighting two fashion tech sites featuring the weather!

Discover, explore, and enjoy!

 

1. Wevther

Sometimes (even after looking up the daily weather), it’s still hard to know what to wear. This site changes each day and is customized based on your current location. Simply click “Use my location!” or enter your postal code, and clothing items matching the local weather appear. If you like an item, simply click on the photo and you are immediately re-directed to its site. You can even select a day in the future and see, not only the weather prediction for that day, but also the collection of items recommended based on the predicted climate of that given day. Aside from getting great clothing recommendations based on weather predictions, the site allows you to discover new great online shopping sites!

 

2. WeatherOnSale

This site offers up to 80 percent off of seasonal apparel when the weather gets below a certain temperature. Instead of dreading the snow, you’ll be begging for it to get cold enough so you can save on great winter gear! The beauty of the site is that it differs from your standard sale. The best sales normally occur on the off-seasons of whatever product you are purchasing. But in the case of Weather on Sale, the colder it gets in New York City, the lower the prices of winter gear. Let the countdown to freezing temperatures commence!


Thanks for joining us this Monday.

Pop-Ups Monday: Monday July 9

It’s back to reality on this lovely Monday! Here are a few new sites to add to your ever-growing online shopping bookmark. Let’s face it, this July heat is making street shopping almost unbearable, and shopping malls are restrictive and redundant. We consider it our duty to share with you the new, innovative, and inspired sites popping up in the expanding fashion tech world.

Discover, explore, and enjoy!

1. BeSleek.com

The features of this website are numerous and varied. Services include Wardrobe Analysis, Style Strategy, Shopping in New York City, and Shopping Online. Is there anything they didn’t think of? BeSleek emphasizes the importance of the Wardrobe Analysis service with a frightening statistic. 80% of women wear only 20% of their wardrobe! The site recommends reviewing the contents of your closet twice a year, evaluating the function and usefulness of each piece. An expert stylist conducts a wardrobe examination, a fitting, mix and match options, and a personalized shopping plan. The Style Strategy service on the site involves an extensive interview, personal shopping, and fittings. There is also the opportunity to shop the streets of New York with a seasoned expert by your side, leading you to hidden shopping destinations and aiding you with your purchases. As if all of these services aren’t enough, BeSleek offers a Shape Calculator, Style Wisdom, and Tricks of the Trade!

2. FarFetch.com

Someone alert Gretchen Weiners—“fetch” has finally happened! And it’s in the form of a fabulous fashion-tech site! FarFetch connects with independent boutiques and businesses around the world.  Each boutique represented has an individual viewpoint, with over 1,000 diverse fashion labels for men and women.  Aside from the usual clothing, shoes, jewelry, and bags sold, FarFetch sells accessories and lifestyle items as well, so nothing you own has to be mainstream. One of the best parts of the site is something called The Playlist: “An international music and fashion celebration” connecting online music pop-up shops with fashion films and live performances. Definitely worth checking out!

3. Fabricly.com

Fabricly is all about collaborating with the best undiscovered designers striving to get to the next level – and we love it! The company sympathizes with us shoppers, knowing that in today’s world, it is nearly impossible to find original, unique pieces.  Fabricly hand-picks the designers and provides them with the tools to execute a killer collection.  Paired with PR support, Fabricly certainly boosts designers to the next level, simultaneously providing shoppers with new, distinctive clothing. Featured on NBC, Elle, Nylon, and WWD, we’re so happy to have discovered them!
