XX from PANAMA

I feel at ease to know that my parents are enjoying their naturalist roots during their later years. From backpacking through Europe in the 70’s to hiking throughout the country, they have always enjoyed the simple life and had a great appreciation for nature. Somehow I did not inherit the rustic roots – as I reside in SoHo, NY preparing to launch a fashion collection – but I do appreciate fine craftsmenship and hiking (just not camping and dirt so much:). Upon their recent trip to Panama my father took photographs of some of the local artisans and surroundings. I am drawn to the woven x patterns found in many of the crafts, art, building constructions, and nature (much like the crossing of the clothespins in the Line Dry logo).

Big stripes, little stripes. When applied correctly, scale and illusion can work to your advantage.

As I mostly wear neutral colors, I love the pop of color for a shoe or accessory. These vintage oxfords from France are bold yet classic. Perfect for a weekend away by the shore or in the city.

A sheer navy striped top or dress is a perfect union between sultry and iconic and can easily go from day into night.

The iconic stripe swimsuit is always a favorite but, in this case, I am drawn to the hat and scarf combination as well as the cat-eye shaped sunglasses.
