"Right now, we're into sphinxes; the body of a lion, the wings of a bird, and the head of a woman. What a fantastic symbol of feminine strength! Plus, cutting out and pasting your friends heads on top make really good birthday cards. EB White Essays offers some of the most perfect, hilarious writing from the first half of the 20th century. We love Kanasta—A card game (similar to Gin) that was popular in the 1950s in South America. Games can last forever and require note taking and even some betting. A perfect activity for our O.L.I.T. (Old Ladies In Training) Club. We're also currently obsessed with Japonisme, the design influence Japan had on the western world at the turn of the century, as well as Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Paul Poiret, and the textiles of Liberty and Co., which all offer loads of inspiration."
Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai are the designers of the womenswear line Vena Cava
