WATCH OUT...

We recently were able to collaborate with a very talented Portland photographer, Hannah Rosa Lewis-Lopes! She took photos for our installation for the up and coming event; Content @ the Ace Hotel! 

This 23 year old babe from the boonies of Maui has studied film at PSU and is now studying film at Pacific Northwest College of the Arts. Her passion for photography clearly shows in everything that comes from her camera! Mostly using a film camera, we are obsessed with all the double exposure she does!

When did you start taking photos?

I was always obsessed with film and art as a child, and often made little films with friends but I did not pick up a camera until high school when my grandmother gave me her dinky little point and shoot digital camera, I was probably about 16 or 17. I didn't really know what I was doing, but always seemed to gravitate towards taking photographs of people but could never find any willing subjects. When I moved away from home to San Francisco I lost touch with my love for photography, it wasn't till late 2009 when I moved to Portland that I decided to pick up a camera again and decided take my first photography class ever, luckily it was an Analogue Intro to Black and White Photography class. Once I learned about the basic functions of a camera and how it manipulated light, I feel in love, particularly with film---and that was it, there was no turning back. 

 

What to you do to get yourself inspired?

 Inspiration is a funny thing, it always seems to come from nowhere or when I'm in the middle of a troublesome task, it comes as a daydream, popping out of nowhere distracting me from the task at hand, for this I have a little notebook that I carry for moments like that. Generally though I'm such a film nerd that I find a lot of inspiration in old movies and reminiscing about all of the romantic far away places I traveled to as a child. Color and fashion also play a big roll, especially the colors and fashion of the late 60's and 70's, I just can't get enough of it.

 

What is your dream photo shoot?

My dream photo shoot would involve a extraordinary location like the Palace of Versailles, the inside is so spectacular with long halls and giant windows, it would be completely over the top with giant hair and ridiculous makeup. Or perhaps something simple in an impossible location like the heart of the Sahara Desert during dusk with sheer materials and the human form. Any opportunity to take me back to Morocco, I long to photograph these magical places that I almost barely remember.

 

What is your spirit animal? 

My cat is definitely my spirit animal, she has expensive taste and a love for the softest things.

Outfit Inspiration

If you haven't seen the movie Almost Famous yet you ought to! From the early 2000's this movie takes us back to a time when rock 'n' roll began to die and we take a journey with a band that is holding onto the old times. Penny Lane, played by Kate Hudson, claims not be a groupie but a "Band- Aid", what we can all agree on is she's a major babe with great style! I know I'm not the only one that has been searching for a look alike of her iconic coat since I saw the movie! Her vibe is so cool, I cannot get over it!

etsyxcapsule

Earlier this year we were invited to be apart of something very exciting, Etsy Wholesale! A new division of Etsy, where buyers for large and small shops of all kinds can browse a community of around 300 makers and buy wholesale! 

Etsy debuted Etsy Wholesale, at the Capsule New York Women's Show a few weekends ago in NYC. We were fortunate to be invited to show our Fall13 Collection with 30 other designers as part of their showcase! This was such an amazing opportunity for us, for people to see the collection across the nation! 

Here are some photos that our friends and follow wholesalers were able to capture at Capsule in the Etsy Wholesale booth. 

 

We are so excited to be apart of the Etsy Wholesale community!

Obsessing Over

tumblr_msputzF4JX1qztx78o1_500.jpg

This indie rock brother- sister duo from Chicago has me hooked! The talented siblings released their debut album, Isles, earlier this year. Natalie Bergman, sister and lead singer, has a hauntingly beautiful voice and sings tunes that all us girls can relate to. Elliot Bergman, the other half of Wild Belle, is a multi- instrument playing genius. Together, their sound is soulful with island influences and will definitely make you want to dance!

They released the music video for one of my favorite tracks off the new album. Another Girl just last week. They also will be playing at the Doug Fir Lounge this week, Tuesday the 24th, for any of you Portlanders wanting to hear good music! 

Wild Belle doesn't just have a good sound, they have great style! Natalie's bohemian look with a rock 'n' roll edge, is effortless! I feel like she stepped right out of the 70's! 

What a muse!
