The Archers Instagram summer hiatus is over. We've been busy moving into our new space at the top of the historic building featured in today's post. The Eastern Columbia Building (1930) Claud Beelman, Los Angeles. Widely considered the greatest surviving example of Art Deco architecture in the city, the building opened on September 12, 1930 as the new headquarters and 39th store for the Eastern Outfitting Company and the Columbia Outfitting Company, furniture and clothing stores founded by Adolph Sieroty. Built of steel-reinforced concrete and clad in glossy turquoise terra cotta with deep blue and gold trim, the sidewalks surrounding the Broadway and 9th Street sides of the building are of multi-colored terrazzo laid in a pattern of zigzags and chevrons. The building was listed as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 294 in 1985, and developer KOR Group, in conjunction with Killefer Flammang Architects, completed a two-year $80-million renovation of the building in 2006, with interior redesign by KWID #easterncolumbiabuilding#claudbeelman#1930#losangeles#california#americandesign#architecture#interiordesign#losangeleshistoricculturalmonument#korgroup#killeferflammangarchitects#kwid#artdeco#restoration#modernism#inspiration
The CMD Team has set up shop here in NYC for @NYNOW, where we'll be doing our first launch of #cmdforthexpansion tomorrow! We're so excited - so much hard work and planning has gone into this collection, and we can't wait to share it with you.
When I release a new set of designs, I’m always mindful to observe what people are attracted to and see how each person wears and pair the pieces in unique and truly individual ways. I love your feedback, and I take it so much to heart.
Sometimes, you don’t realize where the gaps are until you see what people gravitate towards and what seems to be almost lacking in a collection. This gives me a really good sense of where to start, and what pieces I should be focusing on. A great coach of mine advises me to “listen to what they want and give them what they need.” Long necklaces are popular, and earrings are always a big hit, so you can be sure to find more of these types of pieces in the latest collection. I've also noticed such a need and desire for a simple gold chain. I’m thrilled to add a few really simple, but elegant gold chains with this release. I’m so eager to see how they take. Never hesitate to let me know your thoughts and what you'd like to see more of.
The Forth Expansion collection will be available online and in stores in mid-September - we can hardly wait! And for those of you at NYNOW, meet us in Booth 1454! #cmdstyle#nynow2018#cmdforthexpansion#cmdstyle#nynow2018#booth1454#newatnynow#sweepstakes
