a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

My favorite little boutique, Les Pommettes has got some beautiful new things in the store.  There are 2 new designers I had not heard of that I fell in love with: "Gat Rimon" & "A Peace Treaty" . . . See for yourself.

"Gat Rimon was established in 2003 by three friends, Stephanie Mardokh, Yael Benhin and Cynthia Pariente Their goal was to transform and customize vintage clothing.  The collections offer timeless designs carved in rich materials such as silk, which accounts for half of each collection, with an emphasis on wool and leather in winter. We find bodysuits, skirts and blouses with lace, suede jackets, leggings and capes, but mostly romantic dresses and lace."

"A Peace Treaty is an evolving collection aimed at creating ethically produced,artisan level accessories and apparel for the luxury fashion marketplace. Born in 2008, as a personal pact between Farah Malik, a Pakistani Muslim, and Dana Arbib, a Libyan Jew, A PEACE TREATY creates employment for skilled artisans working in places of socio-political strife, effectively supporting their craft while elevating their products to the level of high design for an exclusive,international audience. Inspired by the hand-crafting cultures of the Middle East, Asia, Europe and Africa, A PEACE TREATY was first conceived when Arbib and Malik met while living in Rome.

The two discovered that they shared both a love of high fashion and a desire to increase awareness of ancient, disappearing crafting traditions. Intermingling Arbib’s strong background in graphic, textile and product design with Malik’s history of developing multimedia marketing campaigns for social justice and human rights, they set about connecting discerning fashion connoisseurs with cache, boutique level artifacts from places typically seen only negatively through the media lens. In addition to supporting the craftspeople in these selected locations, A PEACE TREATY also donates to Counterpart International."

I "heart" this necklace . . .
