WHITE/SPACE Trunk Show: Saturday, Oct. 22nd 12 – 5 pm

Posted by & filed under Trunk Show, White/Space.

Last year, we held our first trunk show for local artist:  WHITE/SPACE.  It was such an instant hit, it’s time to do it again.

This time around, the designer was inspired by Italian mid-century modern art and architecture.
Designs are simple with clean lines in solid gold, diamonds and pearls, but the price points aren’t intimidating.

Saturday, October 22nd
12 – 5 pm

Champagne served

BYOJ: Bring Your Own Jeans! MARZdenim Trunk Show

MARZdenim Trunk Show

Saturday, August 27th 12 pm – 5 pm

Marion Zaniello, creator of MARZdenim will be in store to custom alter and/or paint dip your favorite pair of jeans.  Bring your own 100% cotton denim (leave those jeggings at home).  Or, you can choose from Marion’s already completed selection and from Hitchcock Madrona’s vintage 501 collection.

Marion Zaniello, owner of MARZdenim serendipitously came into Hitchcock Madrona.  I exclaimed “WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE JEANS?”.  She replied, “I made them” and “I can make you a pair.”  YES!  Where do I sign, who do I make the check out to, and where do I go?!?  The more I got to know Marion the more I discovered her to be both an amazing person and designer .  She even has the resume (Dana Buchman and Nanette Lepore) to boot!  Marion recently returned to Seattle, her hometown, with husband and three kids in tow.  Nordstrom Product Group was next, as both a designer and design director for 4 years.

In early 2016 MARZdenim was born while Marion and her family were vacationing in Mexico. She was inspired by the white painted trunks of the palm trees all around the resort.  When she returned home she had the brilliant idea to mimic the look on an old pair of jeans.  After flatteringly altering the fit (which she did to mine and I LOVE), she dipped the hems in old house paint.  The rest is history!

Hope to see everyone at the event on Saturday!  Bring your jeans, and your friends, and your friends’ jeans!

OOTD: The Oula Company

So excited for this trunk show!  This is an event unlike any other we have ever had.  The Oula Company is primarily a clothing company.  Erika, the company’s founder, combines heritage African textiles with modern design.  A perfect combo if you ask me!  Although we are know for our accessories, we couldn’t resist offering these playful, easy clothing pieces via a trunk show.  I love how wearable they are, perfect for summer. I can’t wait to see what I come away with (I’ve set a three garment limit for myself!).

Love this piece, it can be worn as a dress or shirt. (Ladies, it has pockets!)

The bold, graphic print looks amazing with these color-blocked necklaces.  I’m wearing all of them, of course, but one or two would look just as cool.

Check out all the amazing Oula clothes, bags, and accessories Saturday, June 11 Noon-5. Champagne and appetizers will be served.

Trunk Show: Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer

Posted by & filed under Artist Profiles, Event, Just In, Obsession, Trunk Show, Uncategorized.

There is nothing we love more than ingenuity in design, and our latest featured brand Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer fills that category to a tee. The Brainchaild of 1/2 of the line’s namesake, Jaclyn Mayer, OGJM is playful, sophisticated, and like nothing we’ve seen before. Jaclyn was already designing under her own name when she began using sraps from artist, Orly Genger’s beautiful woven sculptures. From there, the line took off with exciting collaborations with VPL and Mara Hoffman. See a few of Jaclyn’s designs from the Fall/Winter ’15 collection below, and in store along with other incredible sample and collaboration pieces through this Saturday, October 10th.24

 

Muted tones and sophisticated pops of color wind their way throughout this season’s collections. As with most seasons in the OGJM Archives, the color combinations expertly walk the line between playful and luxe.

The Roxbury Necklace is a real standout in the collection. Architectural and modern, in classically rich tones the Roxbury is a light as air statement necklace for any outfit.

Whether you’re looking for a piece for an event, or just a feel good treat for yourself, stop by the store or email us: info@hitchcockmadrona.com for more pictures and pricing information. Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer will be featured through this Saturday, October 10th.

Event: Xenia Mara Trunk Show

When we hear Xenia Mara, one word comes to mind: Chains! And lots of them. Xenia’s designs have been an ever present fixture on our showroom floor for the past 8 years, steadily flying of the shelves and into the wardrobe’s of our lovely clients. Ranging from chunky to delicate, subtle bling to heavy metal, Xenia’s designs still have us head-over-heels in love; especially for a night out on the town.

Goddess Chains good enough to eat.

Obsession: Ampersand as Apostrophe

Posted by & filed under Artist Profiles, Event, Obsession, Trunk Show.

Every time I start discussing Ampersand as Apostrophe handbags with a client, passerby, barista really anyone who will listen.  I find that my voice climbs a notch or two with excitement. Simply put, Ampersand as Apostrophe has made a loyal fan of this handbag lover. Designer, Creative Director, and Founder of AasA (as the fandom has affectionally abbreviated it) seamlessly navigates the line between fashion forward, simple, and classic in a way that I have yet to see at such an accessible price point with the quality of a few design houses I will refrain from naming.

     Blush Half 2015-03-06 18.09.22 copy

Each bag is functional, structured, fun and comes with an incredible snap out clutch that is not only convenient but adorably sexy as well.

     sops_2015-04-12 17.19.17 copy

Often times, I find myself gravitating to features I never utilize; mirrors, lipstick pockets, built in key rings, you get the picture. This has not been the case for my AsasA bag. I spend most of my time running from the store to an event, or a styling gig and I have found myself snapping out my clutch so often I think it has become an involuntary action.

If you’re interested in seeing Jessica’s amazing work in for yourself, and for a chance to meet the designer in person, stop by the store this Saturday, April 18th between 1pm and 6pm for our Ampersand as Apostrophe Trunk Show.

Hope to see you there!

XOXO,

Millie
