Baldwin | Spring Summer 14

All white everything. Denim jackets buttoned to the top. Circular shades. Classics are classic for a reason. Timeless design does not warrant modification. But when quintessential basics are re-imagined to enhance, not alter, their core, it's difficult not to see seasoned staples from a fresh perspective. Baldwin Denim's latest lookbook is a refreshing take on the current craze surrounding classics. Founded by Matt Baldwin, one of GQ's menswear designers of the year for 2013, the Kansas City-based line launched its first full women's collection this spring. Made in the midwest never sounded so good.

Short Story

I've been pretty consumed with finding the perfect cropped trouser. They're the ideal every-occasion pant, easily transitioning from the office to happy hour, and best of all they're unbelievably flattering. Plus, these androgynous ankle-grazing essentials are a cut above when it comes to highlighting booties and loafers. I've narrowed down my search to these three menswear-inspired styles to formally bid winter farewell. Also! All of these items and everything else on Shopbop is on sale today through April 17.

Well-Lit

Little has as much effect on decor as lighting. Cast under the right light, a room can instantly transform from overtly spacious to intimate. Michelle Steinback's line of industrial light fixtures has the ability to do both. When Michelle couldn't find the European modernist pieces she envisioned for her own home renovation, she began churning out designs from her basement in Portland, Oregon. Within a few months Michelle had stockpiled enough supplies to launch Cedar & Moss, a lighting line dedicated to producing "a more tightly edited version of modern." Michelle sources her materials from several states across the U.S.;  glass from West Virginia, wire from Massachusetts and brass components from LA. The result of this tri-state fusion is absolutely stunning.  1./ 2./ 3./ 4./ 5./ 6./ 7.

Odette New York | Torne Valley

I've worn gold jewelry almost exclusively my entire life. However, It wasn't always by choice. When the piercing gun punctured my ears at eight years old, gold was the only metal my skin could tolerate. Since then, my ears' relationship with non-precious metal has evolved, but my taste in jewelry has not. So I was thrilled to discover Odette New York's Brooklyn-based line of wax carved jewelry cast in brass, gold's more affordable counterpart. Odette's latest collection, Torne Valley, named for the fertile valley that lies at the border of Sweden and Finland, draws from minimalist design. The perfect organically-inspired accessories for spring. View the entire lookbook here.
