Holiday Market in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn

There are a million and one holiday markets out there this time of year but this is special because it is a fundraiser for my kids' NYC Public School. There will be clothing, food and crafty vendors along with great local eats and coffee! The best part is The Art Shack is hosting a kids crafting workshop, so you can shop while your kid makes crafts in the next room. It doesn't get any better than that! Hope to see you there!

In-Store Event on 10/18 for Debut of 2 New Collections

Join us for cocktails at Lady J +1 on Friday, October 18th, from 6:30pm-9pm to celebrate the launch of our two new ground-breaking collections: the dark & riveting Comanche, and the jagged & smart Sequence 2. For this event only, you'll get 20% off everything in the store, including some of the newest plus ones like Goldies Soaps, Mary Meyer Clothing and Family Affairs. 

The Comanche collection captures the era and persona of the fearsome chiefs of this once loathed and war-mongering anarchist tribe.  Fossils, feathers, leather, war clubs, and arrowheads meet silver and stones to command a great spirit within all who wear it.  In Sequence 2, a fun and edgy line inspired by the mathematicians of ancient Greece, influences such as geometry and minimalist hardware meet brass and silver to create strong lines and elegant angles.

Hope to see you and your friends on the 18th!

 


Graphic and Nature

 

The fall round up is here and it's full of graphics and nature! The latest arrivals for fall are fun, inspired and detailed to perfection! First, we have two new Brooklyn-based designers; #1 is Family Affairs. A mother-daughter design team, whose influences include the 60's mod-scene. The mambo shirt and Barbara skirt come together to exemplify this in an updated version of leopard-print, leather and buttoned-down structure. Next, #2, is ceramic designer Jonathan Castro's organic, nesting  pinch-pots. Perfect for storing jewelry or spices and pretty enough to display anywhere in your home. #3 are the Povea Earrings from Lady J Jewelry's latest collection: Comanche. #4 is brooklyn-based designer: Mary Meyer. Her dresses for fall are graphic, striking and comfortable enough to wear all around town. 
All of the above is available at the indie boutique Lady J Plus One this fall.

3 pieces of Jewelry you need for summer

3 fun jewelry trends we've been tracking here at Lady J Jewelry for the summer are:

1) The Knuckle ring -pefect for layering, this summer add-on is fun and funky

2) The boho-hoop in horse shoe shape -seriously the easiest earrings to wear all summer

3) Statement-making Geometrics -long multiple triangles are great for a night out and the triangle studs in gunmetal are edgy but still simple enough for day-wear

 

 

It's Spring

finally! After a long, cold winter there is nothing I like to do better than to refresh my home and style with some new duds. Just for this occasion, I have stocked the store with two new local designers. 

First, Marcos Chin, master illustrator has created a line of T's for men and women, based on his amazing art work. The prints are all hand-drawn, silkscreened and then cut & sewn in his studio in Brooklyn, New York. Now you can find YEE YEE T's at Lady J +1.

 

 

 

Next up is ceramics artist Jonathan Castro. All of his work in handmade in NYC and evokes growth, spikeiness and nature. When I asked Jonathan to describe the Anomily series, which is featured at the store, he had this to say about it "The Anomaly aesthetic derives from looking at bizarre biological growth of the known and newly discovered in nature and is largely influenced by plant life on land and in the sea".  From cereal bowls to statue-esq vases, this collection is not to be missed.
