L'Officiel de la Mode, of Paris, has put together a collection pairing white tank tops with various accessories and styling to help 'wake up' this wardrobe staple, regardless of season. L'Officiel featured Organic by John Patrick's Boy Tank, which is available in our webstore.
The artisanal ikat scarf from Organic by John Patrick is now available, as seen in our webstore. The scarves are 100% hand woven in southern India at the Pochampally Handloom Park. The Pochampally Handloom Park is a first of its kind facility that is also the first handloom/handicraft registered under the Geographical Indication Act of Intellectual Property Rights of India.
Please enjoy the following behind-the-scene photographs of the weaving process at Pochampally for this collaboration with ORGANIC!
Designer Jenni Kayne highlighted Organic by John Patrick's Combo Pullover in her selection for Who What Wear in celebration of Earth Day last month, featuring her favorite eco-friendly fashion and beauty items. Thank you, Jenni, for the kind words!
Tomorrow marks the opening of the Maison de Mode Ethical Pop-Up Shop at the Hole Gallery, which is located at 312 Bowery Street in New York. The pop-up shop will be open to the public Friday through Sunday from 12-7pm. The Maison de Mode Pop-Up Ethical Shop will feature a capsule collection from Organic by John Patrick, amongst the acclaimed Stella McCartney, Osklen and several others. In the pop-up shop, there will be featured items from Organic's Pre-Fall 2013 collection that are not yet available in our webstore. The event, in conjunction with the Frieze Art Fair, is founded by Designer Hassan Pierre, curated by Town & Country's Special Project Editor Amanda Hearst and will also be co-hosted by Hannah Bronfman.
Amanda Hearst reflected on the debut of Maison de Mode this past December at Art Basel Miami Beach, which nearly sold out, telling the New York Times' T Magazine, "The funny thing is that I think a lot of people walked away not realizing the items were ethically produced. I basically made it my mission to prove that ethical fashion isn't frumpy and bland."
