Last weekend while on a shopping excursion for the perfect white shirt (which I am not convinced does not exist for women, damn it!) with Eliot Payne, we chanced upon and then befriended the stylish team behind the DC outpost of menswear mecca Jack Spade. Antonio gave us a full tour of the store, and talked to us about the stories they are telling through their merchandising and approach. It was so DC-centered and personal, drawing upon boyhood memories and images, that it was touching to hear it all firsthand.
He also introduced us to his Girl Friday of the shop, the lovely Miss Jane. She's rocking incredible red vintage boots and Ralph Lauren blouse that purrs of classic feminine chic with an edge.
