hello monday

Welcome to another splendid week.

Today I'd to take a moment to feature Cuyana. A beautiful brand with an even better philosophy.

Cuyana celebrates a life filled with fewer, better things. They create apparel and accessories, designed with a classic, modern aesthetic, sourced from the world's highest quality materials and crafted to last a lifetime.

Cuyana means “to love” in Quechua and every piece we design is imbued with our love for quality, timelessness, and beauty. We want to make pieces that make you smile- and that make you love your closet.

Their mission is what mainly pulled me to this brand. They are aiming for the aesthetic of less. Simplifying our closets and lives through intentional buying - creating, ultimately a closet of only things you love. You can join their lean closet movement here.

We believe in both beauty and intentional buying. We love the joy of finding treasures and the pride of spending wisely. We know that with less we are more and that the essence of insight is simplicity.

We want to revel in the tactile beauty of the world’s finest materials and marvel at consummate craftsmanship.

I love their leather tote's, which are crafted in Argentina (I love Argentina) and their overnight bags, the elegance of a bygone era as they state it. The peak of chic. And then there are the alpaca capes - gorgeous.
