Contrary to popular belief, summer is a time for leather. Not the icy black or gray or white variety that ensconces us during winter, but the warm, broken-in caramel of basic brown. Found on the beaded belts that snake through the loops of cut-off denim shorts; on braided huarache sandals that camouflage the chips of your two-week old pedicure, and on leather cords that suspend shells, bones, horns, antlers, and other natural ephemera acquired on camping trips, hikes, and coastal ventures. The hue can also be found on the new Castor & Pollux wallet that arrived in the store today, in the beautiful, rich, long-awaited shade that falls somewhere between walnut and coffee with just the right amount of milk in it.
We don’t have any photos yet, but we created a mood board of sorts. Enjoy.
