WellNest Boutique Sag Harbor NY

wellnest3 WellNest Boutique Sag Harbor NY

We stumbled on this marvelous  boutique while strolling  in Sag harbor this past weeek-end  and had to share it with you. Based on the concept of holistic living, WellNest, a newly-opened store, features in-house wellness products by Dr.  Richard Ash, cold pressed juices by Organic Avenue (too delicious for words) , eco-friendly house wares and, Le Labo fragrances and accessories! We could not stop fiending over  October Anniversary chunky rings, Catherine Michiels  bracelets,  lovely frames by Urban Spectacles and many  more other eco conscious brands. The  setting  is modern, minimal,   rustic and cozy at the same time,  and once you walk in,  you find it very hard to leave… On the next page a few images by Racked that are much better than the ones we took.

IHTGW By Samia Malik Summer 2010: ‘No Systems’ Collection

ns2 540x405 IHTGW By Samia Malik Summer 2010: No Systems Collection

Loving  Samia Malik’s commitment to make apparel with meaning while creating what I consider to be  modern symbols. Here’s what she  had to say about her latest collection titled “No Systems” :

 We’re surrounded in environments, with many type of systems: culture, traditional, political, consumer, jobs etc. All these systems take over soul purpose of our existence, and ultimate question is how important are these systems for our survival, or are these systems here to destroy us. T shirt line is based on breaking free from: rhetorical and mediocre systems. I continued story of geometric shapes and structures, putting together different angles, to represent unbalanced energies and collision of various energies. Continued colour story that always reflects physiological disruption.
