Article: The Spring Salon By Alice & Lucy


The Spring Salon By Alice & Lucy

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Spring Salon by Alice & Lucy in NYC with my dear friend Chloe. The trunk show was a compilation of some of my favorite British brands as well as some amazing new finds. You can find a round up of the event in The Times.

And, of course, Chloe is British - so we were entirely on point (she also took me to Myers of Keswick - where I bought all of her recs. re: imported sweets to take home - have a newfound love of orange chocolate). 

It was a pleasure to meet such an incredible selection of designers and small business owners who were so clearly passionate about their work. And, because they are small batch (and from across the pond) - one is purchasing and supporting something genuinely special and unique.


It was my second time getting to peruse the artisanal pieces from designer Olivia Morris at the salon. I was introduced to her collection last summer at her first New York pop-up in the Hamptons and have been a fan ever since. I love that she reimagines vintage tablecloths and textiles into shoes, clutches, tablecloths, caftans, and more - so many treasures.

With simple shapes and the incorporation of an array of older textiles with exquisite depth, many of her pieces are truly one-of-a-kind. The collection has such an tasteful character.

You can shop her new arrivals here. 

I loved meeting Ruth Rands - the founder of Herd. Herd is a sustainable knitwear company with some of the coziest sweaters imaginable (they genuinely feel like cashmere).

Herd works with craftsmen and sources their fibers directly from a collective of farmers and harvesters using 100% Bluefaced Leicester wools. Beyond this, each piece is nontoxic as the company uses organic detergents, plant dyes, and trimmings made from plants and nuts.  

I left with this classic striped cardigan (which I want to wear every day) and have been thinking about this beautiful piece in a cheery lemon. I just might need it as well. They are lightweight and soft - while still being warm - and are the perfect transition pieces for the spring season. 

Other designers in attendance included Reluxe FashionMarfa Stance, and Lucy Delius. I recommend visiting their sites as well.


After shopping and an unforgettable lunch at Via Carota (it was my first time and certainly won't be the last!!), we ended our day at From Lucie bakery - which was just as quaint and delicious as I'd imagined it would be. Please try the carrot cake.
