Introducing Adrienne Antonson – my new creative crush. She is the designer of STATE, a clothing company that makes utilitarian and stylish items for women from sustainable and responsible materials. I have had my eye on ALL her products for a while now. She is one talented lady!!

A little from her : “I just launched an online shop for the brand which is keeping me extremely busy & happy. I live in Brooklyn, NY but dream of one day running away to live on a farm with clotheslines & a barn-studio. Until then I keep active by walking 24 blocks to the Post Office (almost) every day to mail STATE orders to ladies all over the world. I spent the last few years living & working on an alpaca farm on an island in the NW & learned as much as I could about raising & working with alpacas & the rewards of country life.”

…and now her favorite piece and why :
“My favorite pieces are my wedding rings. My dad made the gold knotted band for my mom when they first fell in love. He made it from melted gold teeth! (he’s a dentist) and now it’s my wedding band. My husband gave me the antique diamond cluster ring a few Christmases ago and it’s from the late 1700′s! I love thinking of all the women who have worn this before me. I’m also very fond of these bleached suspenders I just made for the shop. They combine all of my favorite aesthetics into one piece: artsy, grandpa, and farm chic — AND they hold your pants up!”
