Learn How to Make Ravioles from France!

Enjoy!

Summer in Austin: Meet our new friends!

Over the past few months, you’ve met some of our newest friends from Australia and Austin. We love introducing them to you and today, we’re sharing profiles of the kids from our summer Austin photo shoot. All of the kids we met, in Australia and Austin, were funny, sweet and completely unique. We loved getting to know them, and thought you’d enjoy it too. So we asked everyone a few fun questions about sharks, seafood and what they want to be when they grow up. Here are their answers … with a little help from mom and dad. Without further ado, meet our Austin friends!

Behind the Design: LaPointe Graphic Dress

Sydney is a city full of design inspiration. On their trip, our designers were inspired by the world around them, from the shapes and colors of the local architecture to the food, flowers, greenery and animals. They were also drawn to the work of Australian artists whose work they saw throughout the cities murals, museums and shops.

A Skater’s Paradise

With amazing views and a 12-foot-deep bowl, the Bondi Beach Skate Park in Sydney is any skater’s dream. The park got its start in 1991 as two skate ramps. The current incarnation was built in 2004 thanks in no small part to John Fox—a former skater who volunteers to take care of the grounds and keep the bowl tag-and trash-free. The park is painted swimming pool aqua blue in a nod to the dry backyard pools of Venice Beach, CA, that were the best place for young skaters to get their wheels under them back in the Dogtown days of the early 1970s—a scene that inspired Aussie skaters like Fox.
