Jessie's Spring 2015 Inspiration

Category: Inspiration, News

 

Spring 2015 began with the idea of a muted, soft palette of whites, beiges, mints and pale nude pinks. This understated palette of colors that are wearable and neutral informed a concept of impactful subtlety and lush textures. Tactile, textural and sculptural elements such as rich leather tassels, perforated circles and tubular leather mignons are found throughout the collection on thick vachetta totes, fun tasseled bucket bags and on sandals and sneakers.

 

Raw materials are natural and earthy, ranging from woven raffias to pale grey snakeskin to beautiful veg-tanned vachettas. These are juxtaposed against techy elements including iridescent saffiano and opaque geometric stones. Silhouettes are simultaneously casual and luxurious, from a heavily-jeweled pool slide to a fringed tote that’s ideal for taking along to the beach to a woven raffia lace up sneaker with the perfect summer vibe.

Staff Styling // The Rio Sneaker

Category: How We Wear It, LR Loves

It’s officially the year of the sneaker. Our sportiest shape, the Rio runner is a recent addition to our casual lineup for Resort 2015 as well as a staff favorite. We especially like that it’s totally acceptable (and encouraged) to pair sporty sneaks with feminine pieces for a laid-back yet cool vibe. In this edition of LR Staff Styling, Jessie and the LR team take their Rios to the streets.

 

Jessie say’s, “I love my Rios! I have them in the perforated version. I like how they look sporty but yet elevated at the same time. Our other colors are really cool also – the prints give them something special. Sneakers are such a big part of a shoe wardrobe these days - I love how unique (and comfortable) our version feels.”

 

“These days I’m wearing my Rio mostly with jeans, but I’ve seen a lot of girls pairing them with a skirt and I love that look too. They’ve definitely become a staple around the office - so effortless.”

Jessie's Top Brooklyn Design Picks

Category: News

 

BEST OF BROOKLYN

JESSIE'S LIST OF BROOKLYN DESIGNER TALENTS TO WATCH FOR:

 

1. Naughty Rugs by Cold Picnic

"I've been a fan of Phoebe Sung and Peter Buer for a long time. I first fell in love with their beautiful weavings when they made a wall hanging for my house. These rugs are amazing—a little bit cheeky and beautiful at the same time."

 

 

2. Light Fixture by Lindsey Adelman

"Lindsey is a friend I admire so much - as a business woman, mom, designer and friend. Her light fixtures are so incredibly beautiful."

 

 

3. Cactus Garden Notecard Set by Hartland Brooklyn

"I've known Emily Johnson for a while. She even designed a cute T-shirt graphic for my son's fourth birthday. I love her use of watercolor and the unique handwritten messages she creates on her cards. The idea of cacti on a card seems like a modern Brooklyn girl's version of a card with flowers."

 

 

4. Marni Coat and Jujuma Stoneware Necklace from Bird

"Jen Mankins has such a distinct point of view. Her taste is exquisite and fun. She has the coolest mix of designers represented in her store; it's all the brands I love and want to wear."

 

 

5. Tangent Pot by High Gloss

"Natalie Herrera is so incredibly talented. I love that this kettle is both simple and very distinctive at the same time. The geometric shapes of the design are juxtaposed against the organic nature of the clay. This little white pot would look so pretty serving tea to my friends."

The Hive / Editor's Picks For New Moms

Category: LR Loves, News

Created for the chic, multi-tasking mom, The Hive is an online destination for busy women that addresses the evolution from pregnancy through motherhood, without abandoning a love of style, shopping and all things chic.

 

It goes to show, when LR fans and founders of The Hive, Melissa Magsaysay and Sara Riff approached us to feature Jessie on their digital “Balancing Act” column, we couldn’t have been more thrilled! In the interview Jessie reveals insights on how she balances her busy personal and professional life, the evolution of Loeffler Randall, and some key things she’s learned along the way.

 

Read The Hive's “Balancing Act With Jessie Randall”.

 

Knowing a thing or two themselves about stylish motherhood, Missy and Sara share their own picks from the Loeffler Randall Resort ’15 collection that are perfect for new moms on the go.

 

Follow @thehivemag on Instagram for daily inspiration.

We've all got those must-have heels and strappy sandals peering out at us from the shelves in our closets, but as tempting as they are to put on, the reality of toting along a toddler (or 3) and trying to teeter around on a precariously high stiletto is just not safe nor is it a good look.

 

Striking that perfect balance between gorgeous and functional doesn't have to be an impossible feat nor should one have to forgo their favorite new spring bag for a bulky diaper tote.

 

At The Hive, we strive to maintain (and elevate) our personal style with enviable accessories, like the ones below. They're statement making yet make sense for everyday and keep getting ready (even when you've got a kid hanging onto each leg), easy, effortless and undeniably chic.

 

Missy’s Picks:

 

Natural Snakeskin Cat Pool Slide

As a busy mother, nothing beats being able to slip something on without the added pressure of buckles or laces.  The fact that these pool slides are perfectly on trend and done in a sophisticated but edgy snakeskin is icing on the cake.

 

Ink Open Tote

A great diaper bag alternative. This carryall still looks chic in bright cobalt blue with a poppy floral lining.


Perforated Industry Bag

We love the fact that this bag can be carried as a crossbody and that the stylish perforation makes finding things a cinch.


Cheetah Haircalf Milla Flats

These Milla flats have a feminine touch with the scallop detail and the leopard is bound to pop with even the most simple look.  Take that school run!

 

 

Sara’s Picks:

 

Shea Perforated Mules

These mules have a sensible heel that allow you to transition from running after your kids to date night with stylish ease.


Lizard Dot Lock Clutch

We'd call this the perfect "drop in."  Throw it in the diaper bag and you'll never be scrounging to unearth your lipstick & keys.... plus its really pretty chic on its own.

 

Raffia Mini Rider

This cute crossbody allows you to be handsfree as you carry more delicate items...like your baby, or your latte.

 

Ink Floral Irini Sneakers

Prepare for looks of envy at the playground in these floral sneakers that are perfectly welcome for Spring.

Staff Styling // The Cat Sandal

Category: How We Wear It, LR Loves

The Cat pool slide is one of our favorite new sandal editions for Resort 2015. A cool take on the (now) ubiquitous sportswear slide - our version is modernized with artisanal details like perforated leather, printed haircalf and beautiful colored snakeskins. The result is a truly effortless and comfortable little sandal that can be dressed up or down with total ease. In this edition of LR Staff Styling, Jessie and the LR team show us how they make the Cat sandal their own.

 

Jessie say’s, “The Cat were my go to on my vacation to Jamaica. I wore them every day with my beach cover-ups but also with jean shorts and even with pretty dresses at night. For me they are so versatile because they are the perfect sporty element to dress down something fancy (I love that juxtaposition) and they are also great for casual times as well.”


“The pool slide is the next big trend after cork sandals. I love the thick, comfort outsole with the pretty, modern upper.”

Easy Ways To Wear Marit with Linh Niller

Category: Collaborations, LR Loves

Linh Niller is a New York based blogger and aspiring designer honing her unique aesthetic (a mix of uptown polish with a downtown cool vibe) and inspiring others to find their own personal style at linhniller.com. This winter, we asked Linh to illustrate a few unexpected ways to style the Loeffler Randall Marit, one of our most versatile tall boots. Enjoy!

 

Linh says, "As temperatures drop in the city, I always start with what shoe to wear. It helps me focus on a certain silhouette. It's helpful to find more than one way to wear layering staples such as a fur vest or cashmere scarf. Warmth and comfort is key, so during the winter, I often am seen in knee high leather boots!"


"I love the Loeffler Randall Marit boot because it’s sleek, minimal, and so comfortable. The boot is great quality leather and is so simple in its design. Knee high boots will never go out of style and the best part is, it pairs well with everything - jeans, midi skirts, culottes, and even mini skirts for a cool 60s vibe."


"Below, I've styled the Marit with culottes, a button up, and a leather jacket for a cool downtown look. I've also styled the boot with a chunky knit sweater dress and cape draped over my shoulders, which offers a great and flattering silhouette. On the days I feel somewhat lazy, I pair the Marit with skinny jeans, which instantly polishes any simple outfit."
