For Gwen, 2015 has proved to be a year for the books. Bidding farewell to an era and transitioning into a new one is a huge feat, so she’s taking this year to ease into change. A birthday celebration in her very own Manhattan couldn’t be more time appropriate! As a nod to this “age” of change, Gwen will be mixing old school birthday traditions with new, glamorous outings…
We’ve long been fans of aden + anais® for their muslin swaddles, sleeping bags, and baby blankets so it was only a matter of time before a partnership was born! With the creation of a co-branded detergent, fabric softener, and chlorine-free bleach came a relationship with aden + anais® co-founder and CEO Raegan Moya-Jones. Being a fellow female entrepreneur, philanthropist, and mother of four, she has us completely inspired. February’s People We Love is all about this Aussie turned Brooklynite mommy, from where she vacations to what she REALLY thinks about Valentine’s Day!
What’s better than crawling into a luxurious, cloud-like bed at the end of the day? Crawling into a luxurious, cloud-like bed fully adorned with white sheets, pillowcases, duvet, and bed skirt…while wearing a white, silk robe! With this picture painted in our minds, we’re convinced that winter whites aren’t exclusive to fashion – we want them in our bedding and bath as well.
For this month’s Things We Love, we’re highlighting bed linens, comforters, and towels that have us completely inspired – all white, of course. And we’re even sharing how to retain their ultra-brightness!
John Robshaw is more than a Textile Designer and World Traveler…
…though he does travel the world for inspiration and new – or more accurately, very, very old – techniques for creating the incredible designs that grace his products. (Just ask Sasha & Malia, they snuggle up in Robshaw designed bedding each night.) With an approach that incorporates the ornamentation of design of Eastern sensibilities with a modern Western aesthetic, Robshaw’s textiles manage to be fresh and historically reflective at the same time.
We caught up with John to pose Ten Questions – read more to find out what inspires him, how he keeps track of all that inspiration, and where he is off to next!
Just slip a Givenchy (clutch!) under the tree for me;
Been an awful good Laundress, Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight!
Helping others keep their wardrobes and homes clean and toxin-free year in and year out has landed Gwen & Lindsey a spot on Santa’s “Nice” list this Christmas. In fact, he may have reserved his first two gifting stops for The Laundress co-founders – they did create his namesake Stain Bar, after all!
Wondering what the Queens of Clean have on their Christmas list this year? From Assouline books to Givenchy clutches, they’re sure to have an ultra-chic holiday.
