Outfit of the Day: I’ve got Sunshine (Pants) on a Cloudy Day

outfit

I am trying to inspire the sunshine with my clothing choices. But, it is still pretty gloomy (but, yeah, no snow!) in Seattle. Maybe that is why I look like I am angry in this photo?

Photo Shoot: Military Style

IMG_2283

Kate is modeling Barbour’s Falcon Coat, which is part of their Heritage Fashion collection. The Heritage collection re-imagines and updates classic Barbour styles by putting a modern twist on iconic looks. It features details derived from Barbour’s International Jacket (which we blogged about previously!) and is super cute and practical.

Military-inspired fashion always comes back around in the fall and winter.  It is classic and versatile, the look is timeless.

The Falcon Coat is made of a cashmere wool blend (so soft!) and features a beautiful leather belt. It has an extremely flattering fit as is expertly tailored.

We also have a few of our hand knit accessories left!  Love the feel and dynamic color of the alpaca yarn we used.

Kate is also wearing a labradorite and sterling silver necklace by Shannon Koszyk in her pocket.  She is also wearing a few Hitchcock Madrona bangle cuffs and a sterling silver Pamela Love ring.

We still have a few sizes in the Falcon coat available!

Photo Shoot: Pioneer Woman

Here is the next “look” in our Kate photo shoot series. We just have too much fun dressing her up!  When you have a perfect model, a store full of fabulous merchandise, a good camera, and two people (Dustin and I) who have read Vouge since the womb, this is the outcome.

The hat Kate is wearing is the “Indiana Hat” by Lisa Battaglia. This is the last one that we have in stock!  Thank you to the five fabulous ladies (Kate is one of them!) that purchased Lisa’s designs. We cannot wait to carry her straw hats this spring/summer. Look for those on the blog around February.

Just a reminder we are open tomorrow (Christmas Eve) until about 2:00. Yes, we still have product!  We just unpacked a new collection from Unearthen which I will photograph very soon.

EVENT: TODAY Fall Launch Party 5:00-7:30pm

Just in time for the season’s change, so has Hitchcock Madrona.  Come see the boutique’s entirely new interior as we introduce our latest fall collections.

Barbour continues to keep our attention with their Barbour International line (think Steve McQueen on a motorcycle).  Several new styles have arrived this week!  Below I am wearing the National Trials Jacket and new grey pearl necklace by Shannon Koszyk.  Along with a huge selection of Shannon’s jewelry, we have new items from Winifred Grace and Karazi Design.  This is our first collection from Karazi Design and we love it’s edgy elegant vibe.

Do you like MY new jacket?!  I’m obsessed.

Grey pearl and medallion necklace (worn doubled) by Shannon Koszyk.

Our own private label is expanded upon with schoolboy blazers, vintage-fit wool cardigans, tuxedo waistcoats in cashmere/wool, and our ever popular cashmere scarves in new checks and plaids.

Come see all that’s new, enjoy a glass of champagne, and toast the new season at Hitchcock Madrona’s Fall Launch Party.

Just in: Lisa Battaglia Hats

New for fall are Lisa Battaglia hats! Based in Brooklyn, New York, Battaglia’s many and varied creations are all handmade in the U.S.! Her designs celebrate and incorporate elements of the past while remaining fashion forward. They all have a distinctive vintage/retro feel that merges seamlessly with modern elements, making them feel timeless and cutting-edge simultaneously. Her hats are of the highest quality and almost function as art works, as many are very sculptural. They have been featured in publications such as Marie Claire, W Jewelry, and Vogue. At Hitchcock, we’ve received several styles in gorgeous shades of grey and brown. These are fabulous accessories that dress-up any outfit and are amazingly versatile.

“Indiana” fedora in camel with brown leather detail.

The necklace that I am wearing is a sneak peak at our fall/holiday collection from Shannon Koszyk.  I visited Shannon’s studio on Monday and picked up lots of her amazing pieces that will make their debut at our Fall Launch Party next Thursday, November 15th.

Floppy hat in light grey with silver braided leather detail.

The most dramatic of the bunch – wide brimmed fedora in black with black leather detail.

Look at this ring – I love it!  Harriet, designer of Surplus, made these tic-tac-toe rings especially for Hitchcock Madrona.  We are so lucky!  They are playful, industrial, wearable (I know, you wouldn’t think!) and so conceptual.

I thought my Margiela booties echoed the brims of Lisa’s hats perfectly – this was a total accident; I didn’t plan on posting about the hats today. Love it when things work out!

We only have four of Lisa’s hats in store right now so come in and try them on. If you are thinking about investing in a hat these are original and made with love.  I have worn my cheap hats too long!  I think it is time to invest.  But, which one??

XOXO
