Piece x Piece and Mc Calls patterns have recently collaborated for their new Generation Next campaign featuring up and coming designers. You can now make your very own Division Tunic at home with all your leftover bits and pieces! We would love to see what you all come up with, so please post your own pics of your Division Tunic on our Facebook page. And be sure to check out the article written by Eco Salon.
It was a full moon the night of the party. Which could only mean one thing, it was going to be a fun night! We had a great turn out and we couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to come by our studio and shop. It was a night to remember.
A picture of the hardworking PxP staff (left-Reeves Sinnot & right-Michaela Montfort) as well as a garland of ties, and a basket full of scarves. Special thanks to the girls for helping me through the first year of Piece x Piece. I couldn’t have done it without you both!
Some happy PxP shoppers! Xuan scored a Native Owl Scarf, Oakley couldn’t decided which City Matrix tie he was taking home, and Reeves poses here with other PxP shoppers, Stephanie, Alicia and Ophelia. Can’t wait to see everyone wearing their new PxP!
Coralie shows us that wearing a tie the regular way is boring, why not wear it like a scarf? Of course if you knew Coralie you’d know what a trend setter she really is. Mark and his lovely little girl came by and did some x-mas shopping. My former instructor at CCA, Jean, came by to show some support to PxP.
Michaela was a busy, busy lady ringing up the PxP merchandise for the evening. Trust me you did NOT want to get in the way of her “system” for checking people out. Reeves and Mario (cutest couple) managed to make a few purchases that night as well. Thank you to everyone who came out and shopped our first annual Holiday Sale. It was such a success that we ran out of bags before the evening was over…sorry about that. Can’t wait to see you all wearing your new Piece x Piece!
Missed the Party? We’ve got you covered. 50% off all merchandise when you use promo code “pxp4me” at the check-out. Merchandise is limited and going quick so better shop before it’s gone!
One of the things we love the most at PxP is when friends come by the studio to show us the way they are wearing their favorite PxP item(s). We have so much fun seeing the different ways they are styling their pieces, how the clothing fits them, and all the feedback that comes along with it. It always surprises us, in a good way! Well, instead of showing you the latest round of who’s come by the studio to show off their PxP goods we decided to do something different. Who would we love to see wearing Piece x Piece…if we could have our pick.
We LOVE Sofia Coppola! She is an amazingly talented writer, director and style icon. Designers such as Marc Jacobs, and Azzedine Alaïa have used Sofia as a muse because of her effortless and non-challant style. We think Sofia would look great in PxP because she exudes a modern/classic ease that is also synonymous with PxP. She looks great in a men’s style attire so instinctively we put her in the Civil Raven shorts. We see the connection…don’t you?
Charlotte Gainsbourg is a English-French actress and singer/songwriter. While you may not be familiar with her, she has appeared in many films including: My Wife is an Actress, 21 Grams and I’m Not There. She is the poster girl for aloof Parisian style often seen wearing jeans, a T-shirt and blazer, all the while looking completely pulled together. We adore her cool/confident attire and can easily see Charlotte roaming the streets of Paris wearing the Starline V-neck, obviously looking totally chic.
Blake Lively may play a “Gossip Girl” on TV but in real life she stays far away from drama. While we’re just speculating, we think she seems pretty down to earth for a young Hollywood “it” girl and she clearly has a great love for first-class fashion. Naturally, we think she’d look amazing in the PxP Bay Grid Vest, while meeting friends for lunch, walking her pooch, or maybe even dodging the paparazzi while hanging out with her (ahem) boyfriend Leo. Oh Blake, what a charmed life you have.
This of course is just a short list of many, many fabulous women we think would no doubt look incredible in PxP. Stay tuned for more.
Hello there, I’m Laura Allcorn, your guest blogger from Pacific Northwest College of Art + Oregon College of Art and Craft.
I’ve spent the past year looking for opportunities for innovation in the fashion industry as my final graduate project, which lead me right here to Piece x Piece. The fashion industry is one of the most innovative as it is quick to adopt new technologies and business models. Like other industries it will also face a myriad of challenges within the next 15 years including material shortages, climate change, and population growth. What will fashion look like then?
The fashion industry adapts quickly because it is driven by the values of its customers. For that reason, I believe women hold the power to re-define fashion.
I began by looking at how women use the clothing they own. How much of their wardrobe’s are being worn on a regular basis? Is there an opportunity for us to share those garments that are not being worn regularly?
To find out, I conducted in-home interviews and scoured research studies. I found that much of a women’s closet is not worn regularly and many of the women I spoke to expressed excitement towards the idea of borrowing the types of garments they rarely wear. For instance, items to wear on a date, at work, on vacation, or just out with friends on the weekend.
Based on those conversations I developed a concept for a garment lending service I call FLUX. The concept is intended to fulfill a women’s needs and desires for fashion and at the same time extend the life-cycle of the garments that are produced.
For the public exhibition of this concept I wanted to share the innovative practices being pursued by makers and designers. Instead of pointing fingers, I chose to celebrate designers who are making garments in an interesting and sustainable way.
I immediately thought of Piece x Piece as an ideal representation of material re-use. The Piece x Piece collection makes this difficult endeavor look effortless by turning discarded swatches into one-of-a-kind pieces of luxury. Thank you to the Piece x Piece team for being a part of my story!
I am getting ready to start a trial of the library. Do get in touch if you are interested in learning more or getting involved. Check me out at
Meet Amy Plemons, she is a producer for Eco Company, an environmental lifestyle TV show based in the Bay Area. A few weeks ago Amy Plemons came to the Piece x Piece studio looking for something to wear for the Environmental Media Awards. Eco Company was nominated for an award at 20th Annual Environmental Media Awards in the Children’s Live Action Television category. Since Amy produces a show that centers around sustainability and the environment she wanted to wear something that reflected those same issues but still fashionable and elegant enough for their green carpet event. The event was hosted at Warner Brothers Studios and she worked the green carpet in Piece x Piece’s own limited edition Skylark Mini-Wrap and the always stunning Division Tunic.
Thanks Amy for thinking of Piece x Piece, it was a pleasure working with you.
You looked fabulous on the EMA green carpet!!
