Chic Find: Three Top Notch Designers under One Roof…….so, if you only think you can find these ladies at Trunk Shows or by appointment, then you’ll be happy to know that things have changed!
Nobility Studio has opened on San Felipe……
2413 San Felipe; Tues., Thurs., Sat., 11 am-4 pm
First, there is the Jewelry Designer, Patricia Peckinpaugh, who has taken her inspiration from her travels and from her many years growing up in Mexico City, to create an exquisite collection of baubles, made from either 18 kt. gold or from her latest discovery of hand-cast Bronze that has been dipped or bathed in gold. This is a technique that Patricia developed to keep prices down and design high…….all are stand-alone metal pieces or have been combined with Pearls and Semi-precious stones, such as the luscious Cuffs featured here of dipped golden Bronze and freshwater pearl flowers. Her collection is far too extensive to describe here, got to stop by and see for yourself and pick a few golden treats that would make Santa proud! An extra good-to-know fact about Patricia’s jewels is that they are featured from time to time on one of my fave fashion websites……Vivre.com and that says alot about her style! also have to visit www.PatriciaPeckinpaugh.com
Second, luxury handbag guruMini Baird is back from her slight siesta from the business…….and her bags have never been more scrumptuous. My favorites were the ruffle bags shown here. Mini’s treatment of luxury exotic skins cannot be outdone and add to that her magnificent taste level and you have a selection of truly beautiful bags. Mini’s collection, Baird & Baird of handbags and accessories for the ladies, with a few giftables for the guys as well, is also a part of this great collaboration of the three ladies that call Nobility Studio home!
Last, but most definitely not least are the surprises upstairs…….Nobility is a collection of apparel that has been co-designed by Patricia Peckinpaugh and Molly Hubbard with the stay-at-home entertaining fashionista in mind. They have designed an easy but elegant collection of silk items that are priced to buy in multiples. A fave of the girls, is this long silk dupioni hostess skirt which they are selling at $275 and blowing out the door in any one of the 12 colors that they offer. The fun thing about this is, you can add a t-shirt and sandals to dress it down for the beach house or dress it up with a cashmere sweater for a holiday party. They offer camis, duster coats, shawls…….very few items, in lots of colors, at great prices to make you want to keep coming back for more!
