Hitchcock Madrona is hosting a trunk show tonight for our favorite avant-garde artist Harriet McNamara and her jewelry line Surplus. All of Harriet’s jewelry is one of a kind and handmade using found objects and materials. Every piece has a wonderful story which is best told by the artist herself. Harriet’s talent is only rivaled by her entertaining and personable presence which is always an event in itself.
Stop by and have a glass of champagne as we toast Harriet and celebrate her newest Surplus collection.
So excited to blog about this jacket! My good friend Summer is an expert seamstress. I recently asked her to recreate the Comme Des Garcons blanket coat from Fall 2009. I have been obsessed with the blanket coat for many years and have never seen one in real life. They sold out immediately and frankly, were out of my price range even at a discount on ebay. When I met Summer I knew that was the first thing I wanted. I used an old (about 5 years old) Banana Republic utility coat and a wool blanket from the Tibetan market in India. I know that this was a challenging project but Summer executed it perfectly. I love love love it!
Here is the Comme version on the runway –
AND mine –
I am also wearing my Hitchcock Madrona sterling and brown leather cuff. This is an original design that everyone must own! We are working on a post all about this classic piece and how we developed it (it wasn’t easy!). I layered my 18k gold skulls and cross bones necklace (he has diamond eyes!) with my lapis, bronze and sterling spike necklace by Pamela Love. As you can see, I am trying to grow my hair out – not cute!
The Toyota Tacoma behind me is the official Hitchcock Madrona-mobile. So glamorous. It is amazing that a jewelry store needs a pick up truck but, we do!
I am getting very excited for the Surplus trunk show on Thursday evening. Come toast one of our favorite artists!
While I am on vacation in Santa Barbara (yeah!) with my family I wanted to post these fun photos that Dustin and I took with Harris a few weeks ago. This photo shoot was totally impromptu and lots of fun – how could it not be?! It all started with one photo of Harris in his new MOSCOT Tummel glasses. Aren’t they perfect?
Glasses by MOSCOT, wool blazer by Hitchcock Madrona, and necklaces by Shannon Koszyk. We have Shannon Koszyk’s spring collection in store now. The new collection infuses her coins, medals and antique heraldry with white and brass beads. They are light and easy to wear.
Harris is also featuring the Seventy Eight Percent Ipad Sleeve and silk pocket square by Hitchcock Madrona. Both items are perfect gifts for men.
Barbour Falcon Coat in Black
IOSSELLIANI Rhinestone collar. How amazing is this piece?! Possibly my favorite item in the store right now. I can’t wait to see who takes this baby home.
Solid cashmere scarf by Hitchcock Madrona.
When we started this photo shoot we asked “what will work for Harris in the store?”. When we ended the shoot we realized “what DOESN”T work for Harris!?”. Everything looked great!
I will be back in the store on Wednesday, February 27th. Until then, Morrow and Dustin will be open and ready to help!
Pamela Love’s spring collection has arrived! Love’s amazing jewelry is regularly featured in magazines like Vogue and Elle. Her unique and playful designs imply rock-and-roll and Southwestern influences and have been perfectly executed and imbued with just the right amount of edge. Currently in stock are necklaces ideal for layering, statement rings and dramatic cuffs. Her work is amazing – stop by and check it out!
Black Onyx, Green Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Smokey Quartz, Crystal Quartz
Black Onyx and Ruby Cocktail Ring by Hitchcock Madrona
I was wearing mine in New York City this week. The beautiful sales associate at Cartier (we just wanted some inspiration!) fell in love. What a compliment! She gave me her card and asked when and if she could purchase one. Of course, I can oblige.
These cocktail rings are based on a 1920’s design that we found in a vintage store about 5 years ago. I think they are so interesting/sinister/estate/complex/beautiful. Who could ask for more?! Treat yourself for your birthday (one is always coming, right?) and add this baby to your collection. It is a timeless piece that we are very proud to feature.
