Jessie's Resort 2015 Inspiration

Category: Inspiration, News

 

Resort ‘15 was inspired by a painting class I took and the beautiful, raw, bleedy inkblots left when we blotted out our paintbrushes. This led to the creation of an abstract, inky interpretation of a floral print in vibrant hues of blues and oranges. This “ink floral” became the cornerstone of the collection and is used on printed leather in shoes and handbags. I loved the idea of brush strokes and hand work, 70’s crafts and natural organic elements juxtaposed against the modern, sporty silhouettes of the collection. For example, the glazed interior of an otherwise unglazed piece of pottery inspired a veg tanned vachetta tote with a more slick, printed interior and ballet flats with print only on the lining."


Sporty new shapes in footwear include a runner in rich raw material mixes and a luxe take on a shower slide. There
is a tomboy vibe to this collection with a focus on elevated sporty classic staples done up in rich raw materials and with modern styling. Circle perforation - like the kind found on basketball shorts - is a key idea across the line from bucket bags to mules. This intersection of sport details and raw materials with earthy, artisanal raw materials and handwork evoke a modernity that nods to the past.

New Resort 2015 Shoes + Handbags

Category: News

 

Loeffler Randall Resort 2015 shoes and handbags are here! The inspiration behind the collection came during a painting class that Jessie took and from the beautiful, bleedy inkblots left over from blotting out their paintbrushes. That idea evolved into the exploration of other craft and hand worked elements applied to more modern, sporty and casual styles. Key materials include a new custom ink printed leather, natural vachetta leather in rich neutrals as well as printed tipped lizard leather. Another component that stands out is a circle-perforated leather adding a playful element to new shoes and handbags. Colors of the collection are grounded in nude, black and white with pops of neon orange and deep sea blue.

 

Resort traditionally offers perfect pieces for holiday and travel; this collection pushes that concept farther by offering new styles are also easy enough to wear now during the colder season. With a simple addition of socks and tights, styles like the Cat pool slide or Thea gladiator sandal are transformed into versatile, truly seasonless pieces – and important concept behind the design of this collection. Another key assortment is an evolution of the scalloped Reina sandal into a higher mid-heel and a elegant slide sandal, great alternatives for women of different heights.

"The Loeffler Randall Resort collection brings back memories of art school - paint blots on paper towels, material exploration, texture, and contrast. Maybe a semester consisting of a painting class, pottery, industrial design, and weaving or fibers. It sounds like a dreamy semester... and as it turns out, this combo also makes for a dreamy collection."

OH JOY! Fall In The Blanks

Category: How We Wear It, LR Loves, News

It's hardly a secret what huge fans we are of our friend, Joy. She's the incredibly creative super mom and voice behind the widely acclaimed lifestyle blog, Oh Joy! We're thrilled to have Joy help us kick off Fall by some showing love for our Marit boots and by answering a few pressing questions...

 

 

The best part of Fall is that crisp, cool air.

 

And my favorite snack is ice cream.

 

I always picture myself in the sunshine.

 

And the place I frequently visit is my hometown, Philadelphia.

 

A song that embodies Fall for me is "What I Wouldn't Do" by A Fine Frenzy.

 

Fall beauty is the change that occurs in nature.

 

My Marit boots are a classic.

 

I'll be wearing them with sweater dresses and skinny jeans, to the farmer's market and brunch with my family.

 

Thanks, Joy and a huge congrats and welcome to baby Coco from the LR team! xx

Q&A With Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co.

Category: LR Loves, News

Anna Bond is the co-owner and Creative Director of Rifle Paper Co. The company, based in Winter Park, Florida was born from a belief that life’s personal stories and moments are best told through the gift of a handwritten card or notes. Proudly printed in the USA and assembled by hand in their Florida studio, Rifle’s product offering, from their signature greeting cards to iPhone cases is carefully curated, all reflecting of Anna’s unique hand-drawn aesthetic.

 

We've been a fan of Anna and Rifle since we first discovered her cards in 2009 (and are currently drooling over their new wallpapers). Always inspired by fellow creative female entrepreneurs like Anna, we're thrilled to feature her current inspirations and her favorite personal pieces from the Loeffler Randall Fall 2014 collection here in this profile. Enjoy!

On first discovering and wearing LR: I probably first came across Loeffler Randall when I saw these awesome Rain Booties and immediately fell in love. My Ione booties and Mini Agenda bag are both unique but feel timeless, are great quality, and can go with so many things in my closet. The bag really goes with anything, which I love. The boots are perfect with jeans or a skirt. They’re also great for Florida Fall/Winter where it never gets too cold but I feel the need to wear boots.

 

Currently inspired by: Keri Russell

 

Fall has me excited about: Wearing jackets and spending time outside. It's been unbearably hot in Florida all summer...

 

A perfect weekend for me is: Going out to brunch, errands, drinks with friends, and a bit of work in the quiet studio.

 

Whenever I travel, I always bring back: Something locally made. I just went to Belize and brought back this amazing woven bag.

 

Currently listening to: Hozier

 

Thanks, Anna! xx

LR Loves: Wide Eyed Legless

Category: How We Wear It, LR Loves, News

We met stylist, designer and blogger behind Wide Eyed Legless, Madelynn Hackwith Furlong, while she was in town for NYFW and immediately fell in love. We especially admire her less-is-more aesthetic that translates seamlessly from her wardrobe to her Nordic-inspired Midwest home. We were lucky enough to spend some time exploring Soho on a particularly perfect fall day collaborating with Madelynn and the talented photographer, Emma Kepley.

We tasked Madelynn to style a personal look with her favorite pieces from the Loeffler Randall Fall 2014 collection and love how Emma captured the essence of the day with these beautiful photos. We hope you enjoy!

 

Madelynn wears the Mercer block heel boot and convertible Lock Backpack.

LR ASKS / 15 QUESTIONS

 

Visiting NYC is like coming home.


And the LR Mercer Boot is let's see... perfect. I wear them more often than I would like to admit!


My style muse is currently, Lykki Li. She has some amazing style, but more importantly is an artist that I deeply respect.


I always picture myslef in black.


Beauty is natural.


My favorite lipstick color is currently nude.


Something I always keep in my bag is sandalwood essential oil (it's suppose to be a Leo's lucky scent).


The place I'm happiest is with my close friends.


I can't live without art.


I despise gossip.


I feel most creative when it's late at night, with music blasting and a bit of melancholy in my heart.


In my past life I was for sure a preforming Jazz singer.


On repeat in my life soundtrack is I Feel It All by Feist.
