Last night, I co-hosted a lovely event at PATCH NYC’s Boston shop and studio with Target to celebrate PATCH NYC’s collection for The Shops at Target, which launches on September 9th. We wined, dined, and talked design. It was great spending time getting to know John Ross and Don Carney and their fantastic courtyard shop and studio in Boston, the story behind their collection for Target, and the experience of being a small brand collaborating with a big brand. I especially love how closely the duo pays attention to the details and the handmade, personal feel of every item – their space feels like one big treasure hunt. Check out some of my favorite pieces in their Target collection:

That feather plate is slaying me… is a feather trend in our future? You heard it here first! I think that a black and gold color palette is at the top of my list (along with the bright pops of deep chartreuse and teal).

During the event, I did a little Q&A with the guys about their collection and design process. Stay tuned for a fun video of the nite’s event including what went down during my exclusive chat with PATCH NYC and Target! Coming soon…
