Tucker Paisley will now be available at Fred Segal, the L.A. mecca of fashion-forward styles and emerging designers. Look for the Tucker Paisley Signature Pattern in the travel section of Fred Segal’s Melrose location. While you’re there, be sure to also check out the latest designs from avant garde designers like Raf Simons and Comme des Garcons, and say hello to Rachel Bilson or Cameron Diaz across the rack.
As L.A.-based designers, we have a special appreciation for the fashion scene in Los Angeles. There are numerous L.A. designers that we admire, but one in particular has become emblematic of the hip yet casual Southern California aesthetic. James Perse, the purveyor of comfy t-shirts and other apparel items, has his flagship store right down the street from us, on Melrose Ave. in West Hollywood. Of course, you can also snatch up James Perse goods at his Malibu, SoHo, and Vegas stores, as well as in fine department and specialty stores. www.jamesperse.com
The editors over at Elle’s site for young women — Ellegirl.com — have singled out the Tucker Paisley Henne bucket tote as a perfect bag for carting books in style. Check out their advice and view the entire slide show of hip back-to-school bags at http://www.ellegirl.com/article/7794
We had the pleasure of dining at Sona in Los Angeles last week. It was one of the best meals we’ve ever had in L.A., and the service was attentive and unpretentious. While Sona is situated on busy Restaurant Row on La Cienega (between Melrose and Beverly), opaque glass surrounds the serene dining room so that you feel like you’re far from the buzz of the city. www.sonarestaurant.com
Here is a photo of adorable Melanie at home in New York, and another of her enjoying a day at the park with her cousin Lukas. Kids are good at finding ways to cool off on a hot and humid city day. Melanie and Lukas’s aunt carries the Tucker Paisley Molly Tote in New York, and Melanie’s grandmother totes the same bag around Seattle.
Introducing three more Tucker Paisley namesakes — the Kimberly, the Elizabeth and the SueSue. As you might guess, all members of the same family. Elizabeth is a middle name passed down through the family. Kim is a good sister to one of our designers –providing hours of assistance, great marketing and advertising insight and acting as a key member of our style committee. Susan is a Tucker Paisley mom and a very loyal supporter. She is often seen out in the Bay Area making everyone aware of Tucker Paisley handbags. As you might guess, she also loves babies! That good looking guy is Mark — also a great supporter of Tucker Paisley. We are looking forward to making him a namesake of our men’s line in the future!
We highly recommend Ragtag Design for your fashion photography needs. Armond at Ragtag flawlessly finishes the masterful photos taken by Chuck at Chuck Goodenough Photography.
