Eddie Borgo’s Odyssey

Eddie Borgo’s pre-fall 2014 collection is all Greek to us. We connect with the intrepid jewelry designer, culture hound and zeitgeist vanguard to learn about the inspiration behind his new pieces, what’s evolving in his brand’s operations and his futuristic aspirations.

The Thread connects with jewelry designer Eddie Borgo, who reveals what inspired his pre-fall 2014 collection—and what’s coming next.

Our yearly Anniversary Sale is officially on! In case you haven’t heard about it: we like to do our annual sale a little differently. Every July, to celebrate another year of being able to serve our customers, we bring in the next season’s most covetable pieces and essentials—from Designer Collections to beauty products—and mark them down. Yes, that means new items on sale.

If it sounds a little backward, that’s because it kind of is. But hey, it’s a celebration! Join us both in store and online now, before prices go up on August 4. To give you a head start, here are some of our favorite trends, must-haves and essentials to watch out for while you’re getting your #NSale shop on.

Placed Lace: Dark neutrals and unexpected items show off their softer sides with lacy details and embellishments.

Boots & Booties: From Western-inspired to peep-toe, your new favorite pair is waiting to call your closet home.

Uptown Brown: Combine rich shades of brown to add depth to fall textures. Mix different tones—or pair one item with something black—for unexpected intrigue.

Cashmere: Embellished, striped or solid, a little something cashmere is always a sweet treat.

Handbags: Who was it who said, “A woman can never have too many handbags”? Oh. We just did.

Everything Leather: On skirts, tops, dresses, pants—no one can stop the leather trend. But when it makes everything look so fresh and edgy, why would you want to?

Intimates: Bras, panties and lingerie—don’t forget the everyday essentials.

Moto Rising: Elements from the rebel biker jacket get deconstructed and are showing up on anything and everything. We’re not complaining.

This week, we welcomed RtA to via C. The brainchild of design duo Eli Azran and David Rimokh, RtA (Road to Awe) is an LA-based brand that has already caught the attention of industry notables and celebs like Kristen Stewart—who knows a thing or two about style. Over the course of a year, what started as a collection of bottoms has grown to include modern tops and jackets with an urban edge.

“For RtA, the pair eschewed special washes and trendy prints in favor of classic designs that won’t go out of style, from a distressed boyfriend set (our personal pick) to standard indigo skinnies.” —Harper’s Bazaar

“I’m loving the mixed-media denim and leather pieces that have a menswear type of vibe but still stay sleek and feminine to the shape.” —Glamour

“The designers have created cool jeans and leather pants with a rock’n’roll vibe that are so desirable, we have a feeling many a style star will be wearing the covetable duds come fashion week.” —Who What Wear

Announcing the arrival of Acne Studios: edgy, iconic shoes that are the footwear equivalent of a designer motorcycle jacket. Throw them on with any outfit for an instant infusion of streetwise cool.

Founded in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1996, Acne (Ambition to Create Novel Expressions) Studios began as a cult denim brand.

Check out the Acne Studios collection, and let your inner MOD out to play.

Channeling the spirit of youthful laissez-faire, the French New Wave films were often shot with improvised equipment by the directors’ friends. Paying homage to their method, we gathered photos from our own friends who captured the dreamy allure of some of Paris’s most iconic sights and experiences—adding inspiration around some of our favorite Milly looks.
