Yep. This happened.
Not that I bought both of them, mind you. But the one at the top definitely found it’s way to my closet. Crafted from vintage leather motorcycle jackets, designed by Matiere de Reflexion, carried at the East 9th Street fashion shop, Love Gang NYC.
I LOVE the Love Gang, the space initially devoted to Devorado, owner Carmen Ruiz’s former vintage style maven haven. Carmen, with shop partner Cara Bloch, ensures that Love Gang fashions and accessories here are cool and contemporary, with affordable prices. I went for a pair of Les Specs sunglasses, initially; then a tiny mouse top knuckle ring that had to be part of my ring repertoire. Added bonus at the shop? Luella, Cara’s adorable Frenchie, who helps holds down the fort and functions as fashion guard dog and four-legged shop gal.
