I am a big fan of elegant minimal pieces (as my clients are familiar with my Vince obsession.)  Naturally, when browsing  online at one of my favorite local stores, Kickpleat, I gravitated towards a particular brand Brochu Walker.

Turns out Lisa Brochu designed at Joie, while Lauren Walker worked at both Splendid and James Perse.  Together they create classic pieces with a great ease to them.  Read more about them at www.facebook.com/brochuwalker.
