AVANT TOI FALL WINTER
We loved the pliable pearl necklaces worn in the Stella McCartney Fall 15 Show at Paris fashion week. They are now available in-store in black or white.
EACH x OTHER
Born out of an encounter between fashion designer Ilan Delouis and artistic director Jenny Mannerheim, EACH x OTHER collaborates with artists, designers, and craftsmen to create a common and identical wardrobe for him and her. Inspired by Robert Montgomery's poem "SAFE AND WARM HERE / IN THE FIRE OF EACH OTHER” the design duo references the idea of the twin flame by using natural fabrics, a timeless color code, and traditionally masculine elements to create unisex pieces that play with the myths of androgyny.
Developing out of her experiments with dismantled vintage t-shirts, Raquel Allegra's eponymous line initially got noticed for her use of recycled materials from the raghouses of the Los Angeles Prison System. But her time spent searching for the perfect t-shirts and shredding them paid off. After having trunk shows in her house to sell her iconic pieces the label took off. 2009 marked a maturation for the brand as the collection expanded to include richly textured pieces in deerskin, linen, cashmere, and French lace. Raquel continues to garner admiration from celebrities, editors, stylists and savvy consumers worldwide from New York to Tokyo. It's a line we love, wear and buy every season without fail.
Betty Lin is proud to highlight MOTHER denim + KIND Campaign.
MOTHER has teamed up with KIND Campaign, a non-profit organization that brings awareness and healing to the negative effects of girl-against-girl bullying, by collaborating on a collection of collegiate vintage-inspired “Play Nice” tees. Twenty percent of sales from this collection will be donated to KIND Campaign
We at Betty Lin find the simple message, "Play Nice", not only empowering but also an inspiring way to use fashion as a platform to further prevent girl-against-girl bullying.
Since 2009, Kind Campaign co-founders Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson, both affected by bullying throughout their youth, decided to create change by giving females a platform to speak out about this universal experience. What began as an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying ultimately became Kind Campaign, an organization that implements school assemblies, documentary screenings, interactive curriculum and Kind Clubs into thousands of schools across the globe. Through Kind Campaign’s multi-platform movement, hundreds of thousands of lives, friendships, classrooms and communities have transformed, and it has become the premier anti-bullying organization for girls.
The Berlin-based eyewear masters, MYKITA, have become world-renowned in the past 12 years for being at the forefront of eyewear development and design. Dedicated to employing high-skilled, fairly-paid workers and establishing continued collaboration with fashion houses and contemporary artists, their innovative technology and unique designs have won them international recognition including the Design for Asia Award, the International Design Award (IDA), and several German Design Awards.
We are excited to be stocking two of their most popular and fashion-forward designs, the Janis in collaboration with designer Bernhard Wilhelm, and the Bradfield in collaboration with Paris-based Damir Doma. The rounded mirrored shades are a classic shape that have seen a recent resurgence; add the cutting-edge materials and designer collab and you have an instant winner.
We are loving the new cropped styles just in from Mother Denim! There's no better way to show off your favorite heels (and ankles) than with a pair of cropped skinny jeans. Come by the shop or give us a call and we'll help you find the perfect pair.
We're in New York looking ahead to Resort 16 and inspired at every turn. We started with a Garden Party, hosted by Stella McCartney, at the Elizabeth Street Garden. The festivities had a Cuban flair with bright streamers, chocolate cigars and models dancing to live music in breezy gowns. We were a little starstruck with a guest list that included Amber Valletta, Cara Delevingne, Liv Tyler, Alicia Keys and more.
