Viva La Fiesta…Abrazo Style at Wendy Foster Montecito

7.22.14-abrazoTake a look at the heart and soul of Abrazo Style… the beauty you love and whose families you help to sustain with the purchase of these products.

These talented people represent generations of master craftsmanship: women whose mothers and grandmothers have passed down their traditions of fine embroidery, master weavers whose fathers and grandfathers taught them to weave on back strap looms.

Some of these people we have met through reputation and many more we have met by chance in the markets or wandering the back roads of Chiapas and Oaxaca. It is our privilege to know them and to share their work with you.

Abrazo invites you to become a part of their on going story. When you wear a Abrazo Style product, you will be doing more than wearing something beautiful, you will be wearing a story…

What’s new at Wendy Foster Montecito… Mor Dotter knits

7.09.14-Mor-Dotte-1Mor Dotter was founded by Hanna Cousins in 2009 while she attended UC Santa Barbara where she studied fine art and fine surfers. After graduation Hanna fled to New York to immerse herself in the fashion community, find inspiration and to top that off, gain some hard knocks life experiences. It took almost two years for her to miss the sun and her creative outlet: fashion design. Once she got back home she decided to follow in her mother’s footsteps to create a full-fledged clothing collection.
7.09.14-Mor-Dotte-2Hanna’s vision is heavily influenced by her mother, Suss Cousins, a pioneer in the knitwear world. In fact, Mor Dotter actually means mother-daughter in Swedish, which is a nod to the insanely tight bond Hanna has with her mother. She grew up in Suss’ store, selling yarn and one of a kind knitted pieces. She even taught knitting classes starting at the age of fourteen to younger girls eager to learn the craft.
7.09.14-Mor-Dotte-3Hanna is not only connected to her mother directly through sharing a passion for this craft, but feels connected and inspired to do this collection after living abroad in Sweden where she developed a deeper connection to her mother and her heritage. It’s a fusion of what she grew up surrounded by, and how that has translated to express her identity today.
The collection is all handcrafted and produced locally here in Los Angeles. Hanna’s collection strives to find the balance between edginess in shapes and textures.

The Effortlessly Stylish Loup Charmant from Brooklyn New York at Wendy Foster Montecito

5.06.14-loup-charmant-1As the temperature rises, leave it to the buyers at Wendy Foster Montecito to find something chic in which to beat the heat. The effortlessly stylish Loup Charmant from Brooklyn New York. Think breezy, sheer cotton voiles in subtle tones by Kee Edwards.
Growing up spending her summers on a small island off the coast of the Carolinas, Kee Edwards has been steeped in ocean life. She is drawn to beaches and savors the easy lifestyle of sun-soaked days on the sand and in the water. It was with this lifestyle in mind that she founded Loup Charmant, a collection of diaphanous, feminine pieces for everyday, all day wear. The brand name, meaning charming wolf, is a reference to Edwards’ own coming-of-age time living in France and evokes the sensuality and subtle flirtatiousness that is inherent to her brand.

5.06.14-loup-charmant-2Inspired by the fuss-free appeal of beach dressing, Edwards set out to offer that sensibility to women, year-round. The Loup Charmant story began in 2006 when Edwards discovered the heirloom quality fabric that allowed her to bring her vision to life. Each Loup Charmant piece has a timeless versatility. Intimates, including bralettes, camisoles, bloomers and slips provide the seasonless foundations of the line, as perfectly suited for bed and beach as they are for layering under the brand’s tops and dresses. The ready-to-wear is equally adaptable, packing up perfectly for a getaway, while just as easily styled for the city streets. Loup Charmant’s soft pastels are mixed with more saturated, but equally dreamy colors like dusty blues, sunset and desert colors, making the brand’s color palette as covetable as its silhouettes.

5.06.14-loup-charmant-3Edwards designs for women seeking a carefree, beautiful way of dressing for every moment of her life. A true lifestyle brand, Loup Charmant offers ethereal basics that allow freedom, set a mood and make women feel beautiful in their own skin, whether they’re on vacation or just want to feel that way.
