Jeanette Farrier has a new project that we are over the moon for! Jeanette is known for her beautiful quilted kanthas made of carefully selected and combined vintage Indian cottons. With a long history of working in this way, she has just embarked on designing new fabric, inspired by the old... to create these queen size coverlets. Each coverlet consists of 5 layers of fabric, all hand-stitched to create the most lovely texture. There are four different styles, shown above. They are two sided, with interesting fabric combinations in keeping with the spirit of Jeanette's throws made of all vintage pieces. We show them here with a vintage Bolivian frazada, polkadot pillowcases and duvet, as well as Lisa Corti pillows and quilt.
We took a trip to one of our favorite places- it is about an hour south of Tucson on the US/Mexico border. The horizon here is far in the distance where the golden grasslands meet the expansive sky. It is quite a sight to see. We go as often as we can for picnics and drives. We thought it would be the perfect place to take photos of some new dresses we have designed for Bon... and we also took along some of the beautiful pieces we have in the shop from Apunto b. In the first photos we show a dress that we have had long in the works. I began to draw this years ago and sat with it for a long time, deciding on all the details. It is called the Puff Dress. It has a substantive volume created by the space between the body and the dress which is made of a crisp cotton Japanese typewriter cloth. It has four covered buttons down the front and giant puff sleeves that have a life of their own. I wore the different samples of this dress all last Spring and Summer and I loved living in it. The next photos show an ensemble that we dream of someone wearing to a holiday party or fancy event. It includes a cashmere sweater and crinkled cotton skirt from Apunto b. Wear it with heels, wear it with flats. It's simply stunning. There is also a matching jacket that we can see worn in this way or with faded jeans and a white tee. We can not overstate the beauty of these crinkled cotton pieces. The fabric is very special. In the next photos we show another one of our dresses that is coming soon. This is made of a lightweight cotton that is great for layering in the winter or lovely on its own in the summer. It has a ruffle set away and surrounding the neck. We love it with the flower pins shown in the photos as well. These are made by our good friends at Patch NYC. We had these in our shop years ago and had been dreaming of them again. When we asked Don and John from Patch if they would ever consider making them again, they told us they were indeed already in the works for this year. They're so fun- made of different wool yarns, some with a bit of sparkle... and vintage sparkly buttons at the center. We love one worn at the top of our Ruffle Collar Dress... or at the top of a cardigan or coat. The Apunto b. pieces here are available in our shop and our new Bon dresses will be here within the next couple of weeks. We leave you with these photos depicting one way we see these pieces being worn. We hope you enjoy!
Giant thank yous to Heather Walker for modeling and Don Lightner for styling assistance :)
This cardigan by Apunto b. is so cozy and warm. We love the density of the knit- it gives it a nice structure and warmth like a coat. The buttons have the sweetest black stitch detailing. This color looks great with red plaid, with denim... and black! We love it here with the Gallego Desportes white gathered shirt and black cotton pants from Apunto b. We have been blown away by the beauty of all the Fall clothing we have received. They are all pieces that will last a lifetime in style and quality. <3 Every piece in this outfit is available in our online shop. We have the white shirt only in size large, but it can also be worn by those who normally wear medium and sometimes small. And as always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call our shop or send us an email :) We hope you are all enjoying the Fall season!
More lovely pieces from Astier de Villatte, a khadi cotton tablecloth in white with blue striped edges and a victorian white chemise. A giant thank you to Nikki Brzesinski for modeling! <3
