Shipley & Halmos Debut New Website



I’ve been a fan of Shipley & Halmos from the very start. No, they don’t make women’s clothing, but their menswear is the kind of stuff I want my future guy to wear! Well, their tech team did a major rework on their website today and it is pretty spectacular. The reason I’m sharing it with you is because the new website is more than just retail. It’s actually kind of men’s blog in itself! So male readers of Yow Yow…get up on it!

The Home Of Jeff Halmos and Lisa Mayock

When two perfectly polished fashion designers couple up (and shack up) you can pretty much expect that every aspect of their life is going to be a designer’s dream. GQ recently featured the home of Jeff Halmos and Lisa Mayock of Shipley & Halmos and Vena Cava, respectively. Not only are these two my style icons and the most fashionable couple I’ve ever laid eyes on, but they are so very much in love and what do I love more than love? Um. Nothing.

Some Men Like Valentine’s Day

Like many little girls growing up, I always believed that Valentine’s Day was for the ladies! It was the one day that girls would acquire something sparkly, nibble into some chocolates, or even receive a bouquet of flowers. (This doesn’t happen in real life) For some reason, no one ever told me that guys  were getting something out of it too. Of course, as I grew up I knew better. I knew that if I were to ever celebrate Valentine’s Day that it wouldn’t be all about me and that I would treat the relationship as being mutual. It still bothers me to this day to watch reality television shows in which girls expect to be treated like princesses at all times. I’m looking at you Heidi Montag.

I’m pretty proud of myself that I can still believe that chivalry isn’t dead, but also that girls can split meals, ask a guy out on a date first, or even WHOA treat their guys out to a date sometimes. It’s what keeps things exciting, right?

The point of this is that Valentine’s Day is a celebration for both you AND your significant other so enjoy it and girls – allow yourself to do something nice for your guy (not just on V-day) but other days too.

Jeff Halmos and Lisa Mayock Living In Style

I think by now we are all aware of who my favorite style icons are in the fashion industry, but hands down – the title for my favorite couple in the industry belongs to Jeff Halmos and Lisa Mayock. Jeff Halmos is one half of Shipley & Halmos and Lisa Mayock is one half of Vena Cava; both just happen to produce some of my favorite collections! I’ve  had a soft spot for S&H ever since Jeanette and I had the opportunity to meet them last summer and partake in their photography project and I have adored Vena Cava’s since they hosted an online garage sale last summer featuring some of their own personal items. Should have snagged those oversized sunglasses when I had the chance. Together, the two of them are sensational. The couple recently invited The Coveteur into their home and the photographs were so stinkin’ cute, they made my stomach hurt a little bit. When this fashion power couple gets married, they will rule everything. Click here to take a peek inside their adorable home.

Fashion Designers in da House!

Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos of Shipley & Halmos will be making their return to the Northwest next Saturday to meet their fans and to draw them quick portraits! Sam is a huge fan of sketching and even launched the blawg “Numerous Drawings” to showcase some of his work. Here is his most recent one:

Check out the rest here.

On another fun note, Diane von Furstenberg will also be in town this Wednesday at Bellevue’s Nordstrom from 2-4PM to promote her new fragrance. In order to meet the designer, you have to buy a bottle of it. No buy no meet. But c’mon it’s Diane von Furstenberg! Just do it.

Shipley & Halmos launch e-commerce

Shipley & Halmos announced today that they have finally launched their e-commerce store. As of right now, they only have their men’s collection available, but that is more than enough. Guys – looks like you get the head start! Also, if you haven’t checked out the website yet, you definitely should. The interactive layout has had me hooked for the past three minutes.

Start shopping now!

Mystery Flower Seeds

It’s no secret that Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos are two of my favorite designers. I suppose I’ve taken a liking to them ever since I met them last year at Barney’s. Aside from being designers, the duo also like to sell quirky knick-knacks and draw characters at their blawg Numerous Drawings. I’ve mentioned Numerous Drawings in the past so today I kind of want to focus on their shop Things! where they have recently started selling these Mystery Flower Seeds. I’m not quite sure which flowers they will produce, but I guess that’s the fun part right? Buy them for yourself or buy them for a friend because they are only $3.99.

Advice from the Fashion Industry’s Power Couple

(that I didn’t even know were a couple until now)

Lisa Mayock makes up one half of Vena Cava and Jeff Halmos makes up one half of Shipley & Halmos. In a new post by Details, the beautiful couple shares their advice on lifestyle, fashion, traveling, etc.

I’m embarrassed that I am now finding out that they’ve been together all along, but thrilled about this post because they just happen to be the co-creators of two of my favorite brands.

My Favorite Hipsters

Ever since Dov Charney announced the hipster era was “out” several months ago, I became concerned. As a part-time hipster, I guess I don’t really understand how it can go out of style. Being a hipster is not just about the fashion or the music. It is a culture. It is a way of living.

Okay, who are we kidding? While I accept the hipster lifestyle, there’s still something about it that makes me giggle. I actually am amused by the hipster culture. While the rest of the world slash the bros at my school find that it is something to joke about, you’d be surprised at how ahead of the game they are. Hipsters all over have paved the way for various trends that began years ago, but are just now turning mainstream as described in a recent Flavorwire post. When I think of this, I am reminded of the scene from The Devil Wears Prada when Miranda puts Andy in her place by telling her that her retail store sweater was hand picked for her by the people in that room because they made that sweater what it was. I know that that movie has nothing to do with hipsters, but all you need to know is that the hipsters ARE Miranda.

Below are some of my favorite hipsters of our time today:

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman has been a bad ass ever since she made her acting debut back in 1994 with The Professional. Since then, she has blown us away with her acting abilities and even her rapping skills. She may have portrayed hipster-ish character Sam in Garden State, but we know that she’s a true one at heart. Natalie is a Harvard grad, vegetarian, and an activist!
