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.

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.

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.
