QC Loves || Bridge & Burn F/W 2012

17/12/2012 § 1 Comment

A gorgeous little love note to New York, Bridge & Burn‘s Fall/Winter 2012 short by Monica Reyes makes me want to bundle up in Erik Prowell’s amazing collection and take an extra long walk around the city.  I’ve long been a fan of this Portland-based brand that effortlessly mixes just the right amounts of ruggedness, prep and menswear detailing, and Fall/Winter 2012 has definitely proven to be no exception to this rule.

Be sure to visit Bridge & Burn.

Field Notes: (capsule) womens

20/09/2011 § 2 Comments

Dropped by (capsule) womens this weekend and was pleased to get an early look at what S/S 2012 has in store for the ladies.  While it does feel slightly strange to be looking at shorts when it’s just getting to be sweater weather, I’m definitely not complaining.  Let’s get real.  As always, (capsule) provided the opportunity to catch up with familiar brands (and faces) and make a few new discoveries as well.

Penfield. Love the color and clasp.

Species by the Thousands.  Magnified chic.

Wm. J. Mills & Co.  Lovely ladylike options.

Vintage Mills labels.

Made Me: Schott Perfecto x Liberty London lining

In God We Trust.  Lady bowties, cufflinks.

Cheeky hand-inscribed flask.

Bridge and Burn.  Through the menswear blogs, I was already aware of Bridge and Burn, but I didn’t know they also designed for women.  Display a distinct menswear influence, factor in a very well-placed use of contrast (linings, waistbands, zippers) and copiously use navy, red, stripes and plaid, and I’m pretty much sold.  I want it all.  Was also very pleased to chat up owner/designer Erik Prowell.

Bliss Lau. The Fathom.  In. Love.
The Fathom is a double ring that can be worn together or separately.
That gorgeous purple stone is a gem called “Viking’s Compass.”

Worn by designer Bliss Lau herself.  Can we talk about that amaze manicure?
