This week, we continue our celebration of the launch of Series 21, our new spring collection inspired by the garden. We speak with the extraordinary Jane Scotter, the founder of Fern Verrow, a biodynamic farm at the foothills of the Black Mountains in England, who cultivates exquisite florals and fruit, produce and herbs, guided by both the scientific and spiritual forces of nature.
My new collection, Series 21, celebrates spring with fresh colors, floral prints, and flowing lines that extend farther than ever before.
At the core of this Series is nature's fluidity and strength, its resiliency through its flexibility. We can embrace this contrast - an inner strength that lets our glamour and grace emanate purely, naturally.
Caroline Lizarraga is the founder of one the most esteemed decorative painting studios working today. She and her team leave their mark with silver leaf and gold gilding, bold abstractions and haunting landscapes, transforming surfaces and creating atmospheres in residences and restaurants, boutiques and hotels. Lizarraga is also a force of creative positivity, and we talk with her in this week's journal about craft, inspiration, and tending to the soul.
San Francisco-based interior designer and author Caitlin Flemming shares a sneak peek into her gorgeous new book, Sense of Place: Design Inspired by Where we Live. Chronicling 20 superb homes of creatives around the globe--from Lan's own home in wine country to Nate Berkus in New York to Penny Morrison in Wales--Sense of Place explores how our immediate surroundings imbue our home life with meaning and beauty.
Like a silkworm shedding its cocoon, we’re all shedding our winter skin and emerging into the light of spring. We see the Sakura cherry blossoms unfurling into effulgent pink and white blooms; we breathe in the fresh fragrance of green landscapes, flush with new growth.
Choreographer and dancer Simone Forti is the subject of a new retrospective at MOCA honoring her pioneering work. In this week's Journal, we find inspiration in her elevation of understated gestures and her sculptural, minimalist forms.
In this liminal moment—as winter changes to spring, and as we emerge from a nesting into a blooming state—we can nurture both body and mind through the transition by sheltering our personal, sacred, space.
With the new Series No. 20, Lan encourages you to embrace summer with this light, vibrant, extremely beautiful collection. New textures, new colors, new cuts, will make your long days and warm nights more playful, more elegant, more memorable.
