Happy Monday: New pieces & Aspen Awesomeness

Posted on April 14, 2014 by Emily Steck

California Capelet in Black

 

[California Capelet in Black]

Guys!  Aspen was awesome.  Now…a timely three weeks later…I am here to give you the low down on what went down.  More importantly, I am going to debut our NEW PIECES beautifully captured by Joshua Klein, our Visual Director.  Today is just so great.  And it is above 60 degrees in NYC so I am as happy as can be! 

 

Aspen is full of beauty.  Beautiful food, beautiful homes, beautiful people, but the true star of the show: those mountains!  We were so taken with the epic natural landscape of Aspen that we used the mountains not only as inspiration, but also as a featured co-star in our shoot alongside the ever-lovely Jenn Kosinski.

There was some pre-planning for our shoot, but much of it was the result of fate.  We arrived in Aspen on March 13th and spent the better part of our arrival day and the 14th scouting photo locations and getting our models runway ready.  The scouting turned out to be quite easy, as all we had to do was look up.  On our first glance upwards we found the mountains, on the second we found our spectacular hotel:  The Hotel Jerome!  To be honest, we are pretty in love with this hotel.  The staff, the décor, the food, the rooms – you name it.  We are ready to move in.  So Auberge Resorts, just let us know when there is a vacancy.  We will become the Eloise of Aspen.

The 15th saw the beginning of our photoshoot and the conquering of our fears.  We enjoyed a nail-biting adventure up the mountain as our gondola stopped mid-trip and did some fancy (re: terrifying) swinging to-and-fro.  Thanks to Christine Morris-Assalone from Full Circle Aspen we were looking glam and used the gondola as our first shoot location.  We had a wonderful time shooting on the mountain and as opposed to boring you with my anecdotes I will let the work speak for itself:

That evening our new One Moon pieces took center stage as our models walked the runway at the Caribou Club for Aspen International Fashion Week (yes, we went to Aspen for a reason, not just because we love Hotel Jerome so much).  The pieces looked spectacular and brought a sense pride to the whole One Moon team, from our workshop in New York to our headquarters in Los Angeles, it was a moment to bask in work hours well spent.   

Sadly, the next day we were homeward bound after an amazing trip, but not before we captured our new pieces sitting pretty in the Hotel Jerome and enjoyed a final meal at Casa Tua – the perfect end to a perfect trip.

Rivercrest Country Club || Joan Katz Breast Center

Posted on March 27, 2014 by Emily Steck

Fresh off the plane and I just wanted to let you all know what a fantastic time we had in Fort Worth, Texas!  We had the privilege of attending a trunk show benefitting Joan Katz Breast Center at the Rivercrest Country Club.  Philanthropy is at the heart of One Moon and it brings such joy to all of us involved to have the opportunity to participate in events such as this.    According to Susan G. Komen, in 2014 it is estimated that there will be 232,670 new cases of breast cancer in American women and 2,360 new cases in American men.  While those numbers alone are staggering, the number of people the disease touches is far great when you consider the husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers--all the families and friends who support, care, and advocate for those fighting the disease.  

We were honored to participate in the event with The Barfield Connection and Heather Ashbury Rare Jewels of India.  It was a very special event filled with beautiful work and beautiful people.   Enjoy the photos below and click here for more information on Joan Katz Breast Center at Baylor All Saints Medical Center

The Superhero of NYFW

Posted on February 20, 2014 by Emily Steck

The fashionistas of New York Fashion Week amaze me.  Come hell or high water (Come frost bite or wintery mix is probably more accurate in this case), they never fail to look chic and unfazed by the elements.  I’d love to say I had a similar dedication to all things sartorial, but as a California girl residing on the east coast, my December-February fashion has one theme: warm, Warm, WARM.  Well, thanks to Fashion Week 2014 my ship has finally come in, in the guise of one particular trend:  The Cape.  The cape has arrived my friends and these aren’t your superhero standards.

 

Ralph Lauren (above) debuted exquisite chiffon evening capes and dramatically draped cashmere, as Carolina Herrera’s collection (not pictured) featured jewel-toned capes, enhanced with colorful leather and fur.

     

  

Derek Lim’s collection (top) featured expertly tailored capes with clean lines, while Donna Karen (bottom) opted for more dramatic off-the-shoulder capes with a warrior feel.     

  

On the more whimsical side, we saw Anna Sui (left) feature a delicately detailed knee-length cape in navy, while the unexpected duo of rapper Cam’ron and Mark McNairy (right) put a masculine twist on the cape with “Dipset USA” prints, faux fur, and flannel. 

 

However, this trend was making waves even before NYFW.  At the Golden Globes, both Amy Adams (in Versace) and Lupita Nyong’o (in Ralph Lauren) channeled the red carpet in fiery hued gowns featuring capes (we only wished Amy had kept hers on all night!) 

So why do we, and the fashion elite, love capes?  For all intents and purposes they are just well-cut quality fabric.  However, as you see in the looks featured on this page and website, the cape elevates an outfit from chic to dramatic, from barren to cozy.  I’ll be the first to admit that I am inclined to wander around in a sweatshirt more than I should. Whether it’s jeans and a T-shirt or a red carpet gown, a cape adds a bit of mystery, a bit of texture, and, practically speaking, a bit of warmth to any look.  Channel your favorite superhero, your inner warrior, your adventurous Snow White.  Toss on your cape and conquer the day as any Fashion Week sartorialist would: bravely. 

   

Ready to strap on that cape and take on the day?  Good.  Take a look around our website and decide which One Moon Cape suits you.  Personally, I'm an Everything Wrap girl, but to each her (or his!) own.  Make sure you have it by March 13th for our show at Aspen International Fashion Week!  If NYFW has taught us anything it's that a fashionista should never be caught with her cape down...

ONE MOON launches on AHALIFE.com

Posted on October 12, 2012 by Joshua Klein


Today, the ONE MOON California Capelet was released for sale at Ahalife.com.  

Ahalife is an international online marketplace featuring unique and luxurious items curated by icons of style including Tim Gunn, Lauren Bush Lauren, Tina Brown, as well as Donna Karan.


"Although luxury brand One Moon might be best known for its covetable capelets, the company also strives to give back in a big way. With the purchase of a sumptuous California Capelet—offered in versatile rich hues and easy-to-style neutrals—a portion of the proceeds goes tward sleeping bags and essentials for people in need. Established one Thanksgiving evening after a busy night working in a soup kitchen, One Moon was founded as a way to provide comfort and warmth while spreading awareness about homelessness. These wraps are more than just an investment piece."  ahalife.com
