Early on when we decided to carry curated jewelry collections at M2057, Ann Lightfoot was the first designer I turned to. I am so drawn to the natural materials she finds, and how she's able to craft them into unique pieces that marry a bright energy with a delicate touch and bold femininity.
This season, her collection of natural stones, colors, and shapes perfectly meshes with our spring designs.See More

Every season, one of the questions I am most frequently asked is, "What are your favorite trends right now?" My typical answer: "None of them."
I swear I'm not a sartorial snob! I get it. We're bombarded with fashion magazines, media, and celebrities telling us what the hot new thing is. Every morning show has a segment explaining how to wear fringe or stripes, and we get excited about trying new things and looking "in the now."
Don't get me wrong—trends can be fun. I will always have a soft spot for a good animal print. But now, with spring fashion hitting the stores, it seems like an especially apt time to take stock.
Instead of focusing on trends, try thinking of your clothes as your armor. What do you put on in the morning that makes you feel strong, confident, and ready to face the world?See More
Spring is nearly here and it's time to think about those transitional staples. These coats and jackets offer chic layers that can fit under larger coats when it's chilly, then stand on their own when temperatures rise.See More
As I wrote about a couple of weeks ago, the architect Zaha Hadid was the primary source of inspiration for M2057’s Spring 2017 collection. I have had the very good fortune of experiencing three of Zaha’s designs during recent travels, which, in turn, impacted designs for Spring.
The MAXXI Museum in Rome is one of the most intriguing museums I have ever visited, where the architecture is as thought provoking as the art inside. The building takes shape from a series of structures that connect and disconnect at various levels, allowing you not only to lose yourself in the space physically, but mentally, as well.
Dresses like the BIBI and NUMA took shape from exploring how this approach could translate to a garment. The Bibi features a series of pintucked seams and asymmetric cuts that give the dress the appearance of escalating levels as you view it from different perspectives. The Numa, a take on the slip dress, accomplishes this through pattern, showing black and white stripes cutting into each other and creating asymmetrical intersections.
Valentine's Day: The time to hit up a hot date or flip the switch and spend a night out with your best friends. Either way, fall in love with M2057's collection of unique jewelry, which will turn every outfit into a statement.
And if you need to direct a certain someone where to find you a special gift, now you have that, too (wink wink).
