Summer may be over but you would never know it by the way LA’s been acting this week. Temps have been makeup-meltingly high, and I’m already dreaming of my summer 2016 wardrobe as I watch NYFW filter through my feed (hello, Alexander Wang!).

We’ve officially settled into our new home and studio in the arts district and I’m so excited to see the space come to life as we prepare for a ton of big projects coming up. Our tiny team mascot is getting quite comfy in his downtown digs and I am loving my upgraded closet situation.

This week started the way all weeks should: with an amazing happy hour at Americano in Downtown LA. Their charcuterie board is next-level, the cocktails are carefully crafted, and the industrial chic vibes make this a great spot to talk business—or sip your Monday blues away.

We had an awesome photo shoot with Linea Pelle, a leather jacket line we’re collaborating with this season. It’s been so fun to see our artwork on their stunning leather jackets, and the shoot was a creative, collaborative success. I can’t wait to share the entire collection with you guys here—they’re so gorgeous you may just have to add a customized leather jacket to your fall shopping list.

Until next week!

Xo,

Tara Martin
