Our Expedition to Patagonia

F15_TripPic_JT_5042

At the very southern end of South America, spanning all of Argentina and part of Chile, lies a sparsely populated region called Patagonia. To the west you’ll find the Andes mountains and Pacific Ocean, to the east the steppes and grasslands and Atlantic Ocean. We visited Patagonia, trekked the frozen blue wonderland of the Perito Moreno Glacier and explored the wild steppe with an intrepid guide names Julian, who showed us lots of Criollo horses, wild herds of guanaco, super-fast jackrabbits and a gigantic Andean condor. Come on a journey with us as we share stories of trekking a glacier, riding in a jeep over the barren grasslands of the Patagonia steppe and finding inspiration in the smallest details.

Our Guide to Buenos Aires

BUENOS AIRES_LW_080It’s easy to fall in love with Buenos Aires. The sounds of Tango music in the streets of San Telmo, the scent of the panaderías and their sweet treats and all of the beautiful architecture… What’s not to love? When our design team took their inspiration trip through Argentina, they were able to experience the sights and sounds of the many barrios (or neighborhoods) of Buenos Aires. Here, we’ve rounded up some of their favorite things to eat, do, see and places to shop if you ever find yourself in the “Paris of South America“.

Behind the Design: Argentine Florals

BUENOS AIRES_LW_143

Flowers are everywhere in Buenos Aires. You’ll see them in the obvious places, parks, trees that line streets and in yards…but also in places you might not expect. You’ll find floral designs adorning signage (called filetado), sculptures and restaurant facades. You’ll see them in the textiles, the ceramics and embroidery. When our team traveled to Buenos Aires, they came back with pictures of the beautiful designs they found throughout the city. Learn about how the florals they saw inspired our designs for many of our baby girl pieces.
