Lulie Wallace was design*sponged (yes, new verb) not too long ago, and now the Charleston painter has garnered much nationwide attention. I’m loving her new textile line. In its shapes and patterns you can see floral inspiration and form. I see myself snagging a duffle bag and taking the train somewhere for the weekend.
And some paintings for posterity…
My friend Katherine Sandoz is an amazing local artist here in Savannah. It is so neat to live in a small corner of the world with such great talent. Now I understand the sentiments of the Twitter handle @nyisboring. There are plenty of “wide-eyed humans” here in the lowcountry and Katherine is just one of them. This month she is holding a grand sale on her works on paper. By entering the code JUNEBUG at checkout on her online boutique you can receive 60% off.
Her works for sale include those from her time spent in Lacoste as well as many of her characteristic portrait-style works. My favorites include the handful pieces referential to New York City, my previous summer habitat. Below are a few samples. Get grabbing quick!
Normally I like to give shout out’s to smaller up-and-comers rather than big companies but this year J.Crew did something for their holiday season that stood out to me. They have a special section of their website dedicated to celebrity and artist curated selections. My favorite would have to be Lauren Hutton’s page. This classic American beauty picks seminal pieces like the Minnie Pant in Red and the Alpaca Shawl-Collar Cardigan.
