How to Change the World with Piece & Co

In 2012, Kathleen Wright left the business world to begin a small nonprofit. That global artisan-focused fashion industry game changer, Piece & Co, is just three years old, but today it takes a major step forward.

Nordstrom teamed up with Wright to connect rural craftspeople with brands such as Current/Elliott, Tory Burch, Joie and Theory so that designers for those lines might utilize gorgeous handmade textiles for their spring 2015 collections. Those dresses, separates and accessories are live on our site as of now.

The results of these collaborations won’t just change your wardrobe; they might change your life, and they will definitely change the lives of the women who had a hand in bringing them to you. I sat down with Wright to talk about three of the women she’s met in her Piece & Co travels, women whose talent, skills and dedication are changing the way we see style this spring.

Fashion Week Street Style

Street Style: Oksenia at Balmain

Oksenia is too cute not to photograph. Her style is accessible and simple, despite the bold leopard coat. The button-front skirt is the must-have trend piece of the month and Oksenia totally received the memo. Suede ankle boots and a coordinating bag let that awesome leopard coat stand out.

Street Style: Cassie at Dries Van Noten

I’m kicking myself for not getting my hands on a military jumpsuit before Fashion Week started. I love all jumpsuits and Cassie’s vintage military one piece would look perfect in my closet. A shearling-lined moto jacket works well with the utilitarian vibe, while silver boots add an unexpected hit of urban cool.

Street Style: Ece Sukan at Dries Van Noten

You know I can’t resist snapping one of my favorite street style stars! Ece Sukan always delivers an awesome look, and I especially love today’s chic moto-maven style. Ece is hitting all the top trend notes: lace layers, turtlenecks, lace-up stilettos, and of course the moto jacket. I’m so into this new layering trend of a long, sheer piece over trousers, and I can’t wait to try it out for myself.

Street Report: Maya Outside Céline

As you’ve seen on the runways and in our trend reports, stripes are back in a big way. Maya is incorporating the pattern into her wardrobe with a menswear-inspired blazer and black and white palette. Her trousers have an element of sportswear in their design, which is an unexpected contrast to the tailored blazer and sky-high heels. Maya’s mirrored sunnies and luxe leather bag add even more chic appeal to this city-girl look.

Street Report: Joanna Outside Just Cavalli

I can’t wait to start experimenting with one of the season’s hottest new trends: military chic. Joanna looks stunning in her army-inspired outfit, which is both sexy and simple. A silk blouse and structured skirt are always a good pairing, while her lace-up stilettos are right on trend. The chain-strap bag and gold accessories add some hardware accents to Joanna’s look.

Street Report: Pernille Outside Hunter

Pernille is a returning favorite to our blog. I am always on the lookout for this stunning Dane and her ever-inspiring style. Pernille is a master at mixing textures and making casual styles look high-end. Today’s outfit is a creative play on fabrics and balance. The sheer skirt gives us a peek at her tall boots, which are super popular right now. As usual, Pernille nailed it!

Street Report: Wendy at John Rocha

Wendy Gilmour (Thankfifi) is no stranger to our blog, so I was thrilled to run into her once again. This Glasgow-based beauty says she’s inspired equally by street style and the runways. I totally agree!

I love the casual simplicity of Wendy’s look. Her bold colors and classic cuts stand out in a sea of monochrome, and we all know how much I love stilettos and denim!

xo,
Crystal
