Announcing our new line of Canoe hair accessories! I’ve been slowly, oh so slowly, growing my hair out for the last few years from a pixie cut. Anyone who’s ever done that can attest to the patience this requires. While dreaming of having Charlie’s Angels long hair, I’d often envision the types of clips I’d […]Pin It
It’s taking me a lot of will power to only show a few sneaks and behind-the-scenes on our Canoe Fall ’12 look book shoot. I had the most talented team of friends come together for a beautiful day of hanging out and making magic. Jackie L. Young photographed the lovely Alice Willett, who was styled […]

Crowned Bird is a truly unique clothing line by the dynamic Priscilla Barrosso. I met Priscilla when I first moved to Austin and was blown away by her talent. Only later did I find out that she also had moved from the Bay Area and worked for Levi’s and the famous Al’s Attire. Her looks […]

Handmade Portraits: Alabama Chanin from Etsy on Vimeo. Natalie Chanin has been a huge influence on me as a designer. I first discovered her work in the pages of Vogue years ago and fell in love with her mission to manufacture the Alabama Chanin line right in her hometown of Florence, Alabama. The aesthetic of […]
