To give your interiors a modern yet timeless boost, peruse the black and white home goods in this distinguished collection.
Your mom probably had some. Your grandmother too. Silk scarves aren’t simply pieces of fabric—they’re foldable jewels. Just the right finishing touch for any outfit. Or garnish for a handbag. They’re also what artist Vera Neumann did best—wide stripes. Warring diagonals. Squares with asymmetrical edges. Splashy but delicate designs full of Pop Art patterns and optical illusions. Get in good form with the vintage Vera scarves and lookalikes in this collection.
Cowboys. Miners. Construction workers. Hip-hop artists and hipsters alike. They all wear denim. It’s a fabric originally woven in Nimes, France—“denim” is a shortened version of “de Nimes”—but its appeal is undeniably global. Jackets, shirts, sneakers and accessories are all made in denim—not just because the fabric looks great from form to form, but because it’s durable, comfortable and doesn’t require special care. Celebrate the fabric that outfitted the West (and the world) with this riveting collection.

There’s an old Scottish saying: “Good things come in small packages.” We give that a wholehearted “aye.” Scotland’s Fair Isle, for example—the source of traditional Scottish knitting—is just three miles long and home to only 70 souls. But because of that speck in the sparkling waves, holiday nights in Scotland and the world over are spent curled up next to a fire in a “bonny” lambswool sweater. Impress the rest of your clan this season with these Fair Isle sweaters.
Forget flashing lights and plastic reindeer. ’Tis the season for more natural decorations. Deck your halls with real boughs of holly. And trim the tree with ribbons of fabric, wooden beads and tin bells. Turn the Grinch greener—from jealousy. And have a graceful Christmas, courtesy of the décor in this collection.
A successful Christmas party is the apotheosis of every host's year-long social calendar. Sparkle, shine, a heaping dose of tinsel-strewn nostalgia, and plenty of punch on the bowl - there is a distinct recipe for this type of fun. These are a few of my favorite things for my very own holiday celebration, sure to brighten up the yule - from Dorothy Thorpe glassware amidst frosted pine berries, to tufted furniture and the perfect caroling mix. And don't forget - it's not a party until a few ornaments get broken!
The party is dimly lit. As a woman enters, a flash of silver picks up every candle in the room. Every eye follows her, every ear hangs on her words. She’s graceful, confident, and her metallic jewelry complements her steely gaze. Adds luster to her sparkling conversation. In the accessories department, it’s easy to go for gold—but a subtle silvery shine always makes a splash. Peruse today’s sterling collection, and celebrate the enduring mettle of the metallic.
Headphones on. Volume cranked up to eleven. More than just feeling the music, you can practically see electric guitars flash, as teased-hair rockers in spandex grind out the hits. Face it. Everyone needs a little heavy metal energy in their life, even if it’s just a band T-shirt or a studded belt—or the full-on leather-and-chains look. Get thunderstruck by this collection of heavy metal accessories.
