Forgive Me, Father…

July 3rd, 2013

…for I have sinned…  I’m afraid I’ve been coveting all things designed by Shannon Koszyk!

ShannonKoszyk__the hidden list blog

During Dallas market, a couple of weeks ago, my fun friend, Bethanne Matari (PR Maven at Currey & Co.) told me that meeting Shannon during market was a “must” and arranged a fun dinner for us.  I’m pretty sure that my “coolness factor” was high on the richter scale just by sitting with her at dinner that night.  This is one creative, b** a** chick!  Shannon describes her aesthetic as “a contrast of luxury and grit – heirloom jewelry deconstructed and weighty – inspired by architecture, history and music.”  It’s all that and more…

Shannon has designed a collection of lighting and accessories for Currey and Co that will be released in October and I can not wait to get a peek!  Bethanne has promised to give me a look as soon as possible, so I’ll be sure to share!  Prepare to see something that is unique and unseen currently in the market.  Until then, I’ll continue to covet Shannon’s jewelry collection!

**Update!**

I’m so glad that I checked Shannon’s site prior to releasing this post!  She’s given us a little peek at this unbelievable chandelier that will be part of her collection for Currey & Co this fall!  I have no words…Can you believe it?

Shannon – You’ve outdone yourself!  Keep it coming!

Your John Henry – signature necklace

May 1st, 2013

Our signatures are almost as original as our finger prints.  They may change throughout the years…Like in Jr High when the dots on your i’s turned into big fat hearts…but they are always uniquely ours.

brevity-signature-necklace-the-hidden-list

These signature necklaces from Brevity are about as personal as it gets.  I love the idea of wearing a loved ones signature or writing a short phrase for someone special.

brevity-signature-necklace-the-hidden-list

No matter how you decide to wear it, or give it, it will be clear that this work of art represents your personality, your mark that has been established over the course of your life and shows who you are now.

The Odd Couple

August 29th, 2012

Ever think you’d see Neiman Marcus and Target collaborating?  Well, it’s about to happen just in time for the holidays!

Target and Neiman Marcus collaboration-thehiddenlist

These two power retailers have recruited 24 designers to create limited-edition gift items.  Is anyone having flashbacks of the Missoni release? I’m hoping that Target has made a few adjustments for this event!  Some of the designers will step out of the product category comfort zone and others are staying with what they know best.  Most items will be priced under $60 with the prices ranging from  $7.99 to $499.99.  Neimans stayed very close to the design process which resulted in products made with real leather and silk, hand beading, hand-blown glass and 18K gold!  Watch for ad campaigns to begin in the fall.

Neiman Marcus-Target-collaboration-thehiddenlist

The collection drops into Neiman Marcus stores, Target stores, NeimanMarcus.com and Target.com on December 1st, so mark your calendars!  The two companies are jointly making a $1 million donation to the Council of Fashion Designers of America to celebrate the partnership and affirm their continual support the American design community.

The following designers have contributed to this collection:

Alice + Olivia

Altuzarra

Band of Outsiders

Brian Atwood

Carolina Herrera

Derek Lam

Diane von Furstenberg

Eddie Borgo

Jason Wu

Judith Leiber

Lela Rose

Marchesa

Marc Jacobs

Oscar de la Renta

Philip Crangi

Prabal Gurung

Proenza Schouler

Rag & Bone

Robert Rodriguez

Rodarte

Skaist-Taylor

Thom Browne

Tory Burch

Tracy Reese

Recently magazine editors in NYC got a sneak peek at the collection.  Here’s what they had to say about it…

OK….NOW I’m excited!

Music To Your Ears

August 28th, 2012

One of my very first blog posts was about Abbie Chesney and her Eye On The Sparrow Designs.  Abbie makes really rad jewelry out of local musician’s guitar strings.  You can find her pieces in many retails stores and on her Etsy shop.   Abbie started her jewelry business after the death of her good friend, musician Carter Albrecht, and now donates her proceeds to the Carter Albrecht Music Foundation.

guitar string jewelry-thehiddenlist

After having HUGE success at a recent Fab.com flash sale, she used the funds to produce a cd featuring local musicians in an effort to help them gain exposure.  This compilation features fifteen songs by local musicians compiled by Dallas’ producer extra-ordinaire, Salim Nourallah.

TheSparrowProject_thehiddenlist

The release of the CD will be kicked off with a concert at  The Kessler  (coolest music venue in town!) on September 6.  Tickets are only $8 and include a copy of the CD!  What a deal!  The concert will feature musicians Chris Holt, Salim Nourallah, John Lefler, Dave Little, and Sammy Strittmatter.

You can purchase a copy of “Change The World” on cdbaby, iTunes, Eye On The Sparrow Designs website and locally at Good Records.  Abbie said, “My goal is to give away as many copies as possible through jewelry sales. I’d rather give the cd’s away in an effort to have as many ears hear it as possible.”  I love her passion!

Real(ly) Real

Pat Smith is among a group of women that I truly admire. She’s the real deal! Sure…it’s pretty cool that she married one of the most well-known Dallas Cowbo

y legends, Emmitt Smith, but there’s SO much more to Pat. She’s most known for her philanthropic efforts on behalf of women and children and her active involvement in church, civic and community activities.

Pat Smith-treasure you-the realreal-thehiddenlist

I’m convinced that Pat wakes up drop-dead gorgeous every morning. She is the definition of sophisticated style and today through August 29th you have a chance to nab a piece of her wardrobe from the online re-sale shop, therealreal.com. Proceeds from the sale will go to Smith’s non-profit, “Treasure You” where she serves as Founder/CEO. This organization’s mission is to mentor, inspire and uplift women to pursue their passions in life despite their circumstances or setbacks.

Items from the sale includes a full range of luxury lines including handbags, shoes and apparel from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dior, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli, Jimmy Choo, and Alexander McQueen just to name a few. Also contributing to the sale is Pat’s husband, Emmitt Smith. (Did you know that Emmitt will soon be back on Dancing With the Stars as an All-Star? Go Emmitt!!)
