We caught up with Shawn to talk about the inspiration for their fall collection as well as a few of her favorite Austin spots. Take a look and stop in to the Lamar store to meet Shawn and Samantha while they are in town!
What is your favorite piece in the fall collection?
We love the colorful African bead bracelets with the traditional/vintage looking stone and diamond charms. They remind me of a Dries [van Noten] piece-something ethnic mixed with something that sparkles.
Where did you take inspiration from this season? Any unexpected sources?We find a lot of inspiration from clothing. I love to look at lines and think what jewelry would I want to wear with that? What would complement it or, even better, contrast it for a totally different look.
What looks/styles are you loving for fall?
Chunky sweaters, thin tees, dressy harem pants, sack dresses– pretty standard. We tend to buy the same thing every season but are always excited to see which designer has made a version that looks new.
Who are your personal style icons?
Kate Bosworth, Carol Radziwill, Taylor Tomasi Hill
How would you describe The Woods woman in 10 words or less?
