Summer & Wine

Ecco-Domani-Summer-Cinemagraph-615

Recently we enjoyed a dinner party out in the country, drinking wine provided by our friends at Ecco Domani, and spending time catching up with the people we love. As we grilled, chatted, and relaxed in each other’s company, the soft and subtle sounds of the playlist below served as a perfect complement to the meal.

Below is our summer & wine playlist – as we head into the weekend, we hope you  spend it with the ones you love, share a bottle of wine, create new memories & make the most of this glorious season…

Listen to more of our playlists here!

The Sounds of New York Fashion Week

turntable-615

I never paid much attention to the songs designers chose to play as they sent their seasonal creations down the runway on the world’s stage until we started making our Instagram recap videos (#fw15s) of our favorite designer’s shows. The sounds of the room reflect the mood, the muse, the feeling the designer is trying to create these garments for. As I think back to these videos, I really loved the song choices this season from Michael Kors using Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” to Ralph Lauren using Chris Botti’s “La Belle Dame Sans Regrets”. We put together a play list of all our favorite designer’s this season songs of choice for their fall / winter 2014 collections. I hope you enjoy them as I have.

Rainy Days

I love rainy days. I love lying in bed and listening to the rain on the skylights. When I was a child, we would visit our grandparents in North Carolina and the rain would make the most beautiful music on their old tin roof. I’ve always been enchanted with days like these. The weight of the air, the dampness on our skin, how we can get caught in it and sometimes even make memories that will last forever.

At the studio now we make Americanos and pull up our rainy day playlist, the sounds that echo through Ann Street Studio on days just like today in New York. The music fills my soul when I look out the window at the beautiful simplicity of water falling and washing away all our yesterdays.

 In the studio, these are a few of my favorite things: Restoration Hardware Gramophone / Nest three-wick candle in Grapefruit / Peter Lindbergh Images of Women / Vogue The Editor’s Eye / Pineapple glass lamp from Savannah, GA (Pineapples represent hospitality!) / View Camera (for things like THIS) / GRACE: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue / Leather Journal from Florence / Book magnifying glass from a visit to the FRICK / Handmade pottery coffee mug from here in the East Village / Irving Penn’s Passage

I hope you enjoy our list and please, we would love recommendations of songs to add! As in life, this list should forever be evolving… here’s to rainy days.

Must you sing of days gone by
Must you always sigh
Tell me why your song is sad, never glad
Blue River, Blue River
Do you hold the memory Of a vanished dream


Words he sang while they danced away.
