San Francisco based Erin Hakansson developed her own sense of style  in London post-college, as she focused on classic, quality pieces of fashion that she could make her own with modern twists.  Gaining inspiration from travels that include Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Madrid, Stockholm, and her current favorite, Florence, Erin focuses on creating pieces that accentuate and highlight a woman’s personal style, with an eye on individuality, elegance and simplicity.

In pursuit of his latest collection, Spanish footwear designer J.J. Egido’s traveled to Italy to source supple leathers and skins, to India where he expanded his collection of luxe materials and partnered with local artisans, and Spain.
