    Introducing: Rialto Jean Project

    Living in Venice Beach, California, Erin Feniger frequented Gjelina for her morning coffee: “I would see this girl—think Erin Wasson—who literally got out of the water from surfing and threw on her paint clothes, because she’s an artist. She’d be wearing her boyfriend’s old Levi’s that had paint everywhere, a white tank top, no bra, and hair with that perfect wave,” she describes. We can all imagine this girl. “I’d be looking at her thinking, ‘I just spent five hours trying to look like that and I don’t,’” Erin says.

    Eye Candy

    There has been a controversy in the Preserve office and we have to set the record straight. It’s flickering and shimmering and really, really, pretty, but what exactly is druzy? Debate topics include whether or not it’s real (it is), and how exactly to pronounce it (pssst—it’s like drew-zee), and just how on Earth is it so freaking sparkly?  Somebody went so far as to try to scrape off the top. We’ve never seen anything like it. Druzy—it’s a doozy.

    Letter from the Editor

    Letter from the Editor

    Sitting down to write this editor’s letter has been the hardest thing I've done yet on my Preserve journey. I’m more intimidated than I should probably admit. I’m no editor, no artisan, no expert. And certainly no arbiter of what you should buy, wear, or eat. I am hungry, though...and not just for enchiladas.

    Introducing: Maman NYC

    Once upon a time (two months ago) we wandered outside our SoHo offices and stumbled into heaven: It’s decorated like the French country house you’ve only seen in movies, and it has this uncanny ability to constantly smell like freshly baked croissants. We needed to know the people behind this beautiful creature. And now, we have to share their story—introducing Maman NYC.

    Chef Hung's Secret Family Recipe

    A couple weekends ago, it was damp and rainy here in New York. In other words, it was a perfect day for broth, according to Chef Hung, one of our favorite Top Chefs. But when we initially invited him to the South Street Seaport for BrothFest (an event for the extensive tasting of broths), he texted us: “BrothFest? That’s funny. We Asians drink broth with every meal. All of a sudden people are drinking stock and making such a big deal?” So when we say a perfect day for broth, we mean everyday is a perfect day for broth.

    Go Green

    Okay. So green is not your color. But that doesn’t mean you should cut it out of your life completely. We’re longtime fans of sporting our greens in smoothies, so we caught up with Chef Hung to whip something together that looks green, but definitely doesn’t taste green.

  • Introducing: In God We Trust Image


    Introducing: In God We Trust

    We held our very first social contest on Twitter a couple weeks ago. It was inspired by In God We Trust’s Sweet Nothings necklaces and Blake’s cookie recipe. We asked our followers to send us their cheekiest one-liners, and the winner would be made into an exclusive necklace for Preserve x In God We Trust. The contest was scary and exciting and we were shocked and amazed by the response. So we went out to Brooklyn to meet Shana Tabor, founder of IGWT. She was everything we hoped for—and more—and coincidentally, she was elbows deep in our new necklaces upon our arrival.

    Introducing: Sarah Ashley Longshore

    On a recent five-week creative sabbatical, Sarah Ashley Longshore operated almost exclusively on instinct, like a woman possessed. “I would wake up in the morning, and before I even made a cup of coffee, I would have a 54 by 54 canvas on an easel,” she recalls. “I don't even know what was driving me to do that!” The loquacious, red-lipped artist of 20 years, who goes by her middle name, considers her works much more than paint on canvas. They are a part of her, of the way she sees the world. “If I have an idea coming together in my mind, I paint it,” she explains. “And I will work like a wild woman for it!”
