LR Loves: Jess Hannah

Category: LR Loves

When we first came across jeweler Jess Hannah’s instagram, we couldn’t help but dig her super casual and minimalistic grid. Her aesthetic is simple and effortless, never overpowering—just like her eponymous line of fine jewelry, J.Hannah. Characterized by clean lines and delicate details, her designs are celestial yet edgy by nature. We are hooked on Jess Hannah—and were so excited when she agreed to take us into her L.A. based studio. Jess shows us a thing or two about her craft while wearing her selects from our Spring '15 Collection.

 

 

How do you like to start your day?

I love my mornings and I try to keep things relaxed. I usually start with a cup of tea and answer emails on the couch for an hour or so. A couple times a week I'll go to the gym or yoga before that. Then I usually make a bite to eat and head up to my studio. That's when I start really getting into work mode. I'll plan my day and make my daily to do list.

 

What’s a typical day (in the studio) for you?

My days can vary a lot. Most days I answer emails, plan instagram/blog posts, work on jewelry designs and pack and ship orders. My days are often broken up by meetings or errands in the jewelry district - which is nice to get a little fresh air.

 

 

What’s your favorite thing about living in LA?

I love downtown LA specifically because I can walk everywhere. Yes, it smells like hot pee on every corner, but it is so worth it. Everything I need on a daily basis is steps away. Some general LA things I love are mostly food related. There are SO many great restaurants here and such a vast array of choices. My current fave restaurant is Bestia, in the Arts District.

 

We love that Global consciousness is a priority for you – tell us more about how this incorporates into your designs.

I use recycled gold whenever possible and always conflict free diamonds. I used to make all of the jewelry myself, but in order to keep up with recent demands, I now have a really great guy that helps me. My goal isn't to be a huge company, I just really love creating jewelry. It's more about quality than quantity for me. It's just me and my bench jeweler and no matter how big my line gets- it will always be handmade in downtown LA.


If you weren’t a jewelry designer, you’d be…

Unhappy. Jewelry design is such a huge part of my life, it's really hard to imagine what else I would do. My dad really wanted me to be a doctor but I’m horrible at science and totally squeamish, so I guess that would be off the table. I studied Graphic Design in University, so I would likely be doing something related to that if I had not gone down the jewelry path.


SHOP THE LOOK: Open Tote in WhitePetra Cross Strap Sandal in White

 

How did you originally discover Loeffler Randall?

I had seen the brand around pinterest and a few shops and had always really liked it. My first purchase was the Rider Satchel and I was thoroughly impressed with its functionality. There are two strap length options and tons of pockets in all of the right places, not to mention it's quite the looker. Cue "praise da lord" emoji.

 

What are you coveting from the SS15 collection? 

I'm a big fan of the petra cross strap sandal in white. For me comfort always comes first and these guys really nail it. I am not a huge fan of bright colors so for me white is my color of choice to convey spring.

 

Current show you’re binge watching on Netflix?

My boyfriend and I just finished a binge marathon of Peaky Blinders. If you haven't seen it already then you should probably cancel your plans for this weekend.

Jessie's Packing Picks

Category: How We Wear It, LR Loves

This snow has us running for the sand. We're seeing stripes and eyelet essentials at even the thought of warm weather. Get lost inside Jessie's Spring Break bag. You'll be lounging poolside in your pool slides before you know it.



Packing: plan ahead or last minute?

With 3 kids I always plan ahead. I’ve had the boys’ suitcase packed for 3 weeks!

 

What’s your vacay-style philosophy?

I like to bring a few nice outfits with me, a couple great bathing suits (I am obsessed with Zimmerman’s classic one-piece), some workout gear, comfortable cover-ups for by the pool, hat, sunglasses and way too many pairs of shoes. Shoes are my weakness. I can never decide which ones to bring so I usually bring them all.

 


When you get to your hotel, what’s the first thing you do?

I like to change the boys into their suits on the plane so very first thing we can head out to the pool.

 

Favorite locals spot? (or favorite place to find local treasures?)

When I am on vacation, it’s all about my boys. There are no fancy adult dinners or out of the way shopping excursions. My boys are very excited to go get ice cream at Scoops in South Beach so that’s the only spot on my agenda. If my guys are into it, I may take them to the Design District.

 

SHOP THE LOOKS: Paz Sandal in SilverPascal Sandal in Cheetah, Cat Jeweled Sandal in Mint

 

Is there anything you won’t travel without?

My boys, Tata Harper rejuvenating serum, my prized Celine sunglasses that Brian gave me for Christmas, lots of LR shoes, the boys’  swim goggles, sunscreen and new things downloaded to read on my Kindle.

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."
