Going somewhere?  Here’s what to pack!

La Rambla Street, Barcelona

Inspiration is everywhere, if you are looking for it! Our own Product Development Manager, Rachel, recently traveled to Barcelona, Spain’s second-most populous city, and shared her trip highlights with us.

Barcelona is home to more than a million people, some born into the city, and some drawn to its Mediterranean climate and ancient architecture.  Brought into the public eye after hosting the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona has enjoyed a booming tourist industry.  Bordered by ocean views and mountain ranges, you will be enraptured by natural beauty wherever you turn.

Whether you are hopping the next plane to the tropics, or planing on a staycation in your own backyard, include some of these travel-ready looks for effortless sunshine style!

Known for its architecture, the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is the biggest Roman Catholic church in the world. Designed by the famous architect Antoni Gaudi, the construction started in 1882 and it is still unfinished.

Our designers are inspired by the intricate, delicate features found in the ancient architecture around the world.  They bring this inspiration back to our NYC studios and recreate that level of detail in our designs.

Despite the repeated interruption of construction of the Sagrada Familia by wars and depleted funds, the church tells the story of its teachings in these breathtaking statues on its facade.

Also the creation of Antoni Gaudi, Park Guell is a public park, composed of garden and architectural elements. Like Mr. Gaudi, we are inspired by the mix of bold hues and patterns found in nature, and carry that into our exclusive prints.
