Our Helsinki boots, designed through a collaboration with Finnish designer Ivana Helsinki, walked the runway during NYFW in February. Now they are ready to be worn among the masses.
Recently our Queen Bee at Seychelles, Sari traveled back to her hometown of Helsinki, Finland and was able to capture our amazing boots featured in Ivana's pop up shop in the city centre.
If the holidays find you abroad this season, make sure you make a side trip to Helsinki. If not, shop the boots here and know you own a little piece of Seychelles fashion history.

Today we're lauding The Civil Wars. To say we love this band is simply not enough. We had the privilege of seeing them live this past weekend and the show far surpassed our expectations.
Every once in awhile, you hear, see or experience something that you know is extraordinary. The Civil Wars, live in concert, was definitely one of those defining moments.
Having sung together now for only 3 years after meeting in a song writing session in Nashville, this duo has taken the industry by storm. Their voices blend as if they are coming from the same source. They are old school, talent rich and dress up for the occasion.
Get to know them with these backstage videos shot on their tour this past Summer.

Our new ALL DRESSED UP heels are the perfect shoe (and the truth is they are even better in person). Paired with a faux fur jacket and a tunic dress over skinny jeans, this outfit lasts from work meeting to friend's dinner.
Where would you go wearing this?

We love visiting The Selby to get a daily dose of what's happening in other people's lives. They now have taken it one step further and teamed up with ZARA on a video series featuring English bred and NYC based gallerist Lucy Chadwick.
If we were to describe Lucy's world, we would use words like simple, classic, linear and artistic. An artist by trade, her effortless aesthetic is apparent in her NYC apartment, her barn in the woods and pretty much everything she takes part in.
Instead of feeling the need to hurry and finish, her and her partner have chosen to build from the ground up, take time curating and making the right choices for the spot they've chosen to put their roots down. We should all seek to find our place and do the same.

David Amico's FACTORY / PARK SERIES is now up at Ace Gallery in Beverly Hills. This Los Angeles based artist took inspiration from Skid Row and transformed it to create these beautiful abstract paintings. I was inspired to pair up some of his paintings with my favorite fall Seychelles shoes. I can just imagine wearing any of these shoes while visiting the gallery with my friends. The show just started and will be on view through December. This is one art show you should not miss this season!

Adan Jodorowsky, working under the moniker Adanowsky, is a French/Chilean musician who recently caught our attention and we think you'll love his sound as much as we do. He's the son of visionary filmmaker Jodorowsky, so it's no surprise that talent runs in the family. Says T Magazine, "It wasn’t until he left his native Paris for Chile and translated his lyrics from French to Spanish that he and his career started to go places. Lately, he splits his time between Mexico City, Los Angeles, Paris and anywhere the tour for his melancholy new album, 'Amador,' takes him." Recently Adanowsky found a kindred spirit in Devendra Banhart, and the two collaborated on a song and music video.
Listen to the magical sounds of Adonowsky & Devendra Banhart

Just because Winter is approaching or already here to stay, doesn't mean you have to shy away from a soft color palette. The key is to dress in layers.
Our PRIME SUPSECT wedge booties reign perfection with the rest of this ensemble. The look is dressy casual yet it's all in the interpretation.
