“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot an the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.”
—Charles Dickens

While it may have been one of those March days that Charles Dickens spoke of, it is the official first day of Spring! and we’re excited about pink blossoms on trees in the city and bright sunny days, flowering hedges and awaking early, pink kitten heels and shimmery bomber jackets, duchess-satin wrap coats and soft suede mules—here are a few favourite things on our SPRING shopping list . . .

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

from the last verse of the poem If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda

We met in cafés and empty offices. A young wife spoke for the first time about her missing husband. A nephew had lost his aunt. Many mothers had lost many sons. Some had never shared their story with a stranger before. They sat on benches and in hallways, waiting their turn to speak. Some had left their villages before dawn to drive or hitch a ride to the city. When they finished, they stood up and went home again.

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

IT IS UNDENIABLY chilly, and the fire is on at the cottage most days now. The leaves have turned a bright yellow and the shops are a confusing mix of pumpkins and Christmas crackers. How there can be only two and a half months left of the year is a mystery. It feels like a moment ago that I was writing my New Year’s Resolutions for 2019 and now we’re on the cusp of 2020…

Mini City Guide: London, England

We were in London a couple of weeks ago, as you know, to meet a friend and business associate from Spain. He was there, we would find out later, for the funeral of an old friend. It was the first time we had seen him outside of his comfort zone, which was normally his office, »

RIHANNA is ready. First she moved our interview from Thursday to Wednesday. Then from evening to afternoon. When I get word of this latest change, on a slick and humid August day in Los Angeles, I have just enough time to shower and get to the Hotel Bel-Air…

In the Atelier With: August & June

We created August & June for the woman who confidently knows who she is and whimsically dreams of whom she’s still becoming–the woman writing her own story. We believe in celebrating every day, everywhere, with some sparkle–whether at a client meeting or in downward dog. We believe a stacked wrist can embolden a woman to take ownership, of her style and her life.
