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."

Seaside Shoes / Decade Diary

Category: LR Loves

Bernadette Pascua is an illustrator and voice behind one of our favorite reads Decade Diary. She recently took her favorite Jules wedges along with her for a sunny trip to Saint-Paul de Vence, France. These photos are from La Colombe d'Or Hotel, a small hotel renown for it's historic support of the arts since the 1920's at which she stayed. The pool area features a sculpure by artist Alexander Calder, beautifully captured below by Bernadette.

 

 

"For beach holidays I leave the high heels at home and pack either a pair of wedges, little kitten heels or mules. My dress-up shoes for this trip were these simple Loeffler Randall Jules ankle strap wedges. I’ll try wearing them with socks this winter but they’ll definitely be coming out again next summer."

 

 

"There’s something heavenly about being able to swim in a heated pool while staring up a giant Calder mobile. All of the art (at La Colomber d'Or) is enjoyed freely without the structure and confines of a modern museum."

Category: Inspiration, LR Loves, News

"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.

We're very pleased to share Jessie's recent profile in Lucky Magazine by Jayna Maleri:

 

Comfort Zone: How Loeffler Randall Designer Jessie Randall Finds An Escape From The Busy City


Jessie Randall’s Park Slope brownstone is less than five miles from downtown Manhattan. It’s a fact that bears mentioning, since stepping inside her home gives the distinct impression of having left the city far, far behind. “My life is really busy, so it was important to me that my house felt calm,” she explains. “I wanted it to be a place for my family where we can all just unwind.”
