Summer Neutrals

We're best known for our bright, bold prints but sometimes summer calls for subdued earth tones mixed with whites. We love Kate Middleton's style seen in this picture from NY Mag. She looks so effortlessly chic. And she would look great with one of our ikat totes to complete her outfit (preview coming soon).

Anticipating Summer: Espadrilles

Summer means many things to us at R. Williams: hydrangeas, fresh tomatoes and basil, watermelon, iced tea brewed in the sun, escaping the city to the beaches of Nantucket, the Cape or the Hamptons, swimming, sailing and tennis. All the things that we daydream of on a cold, snowy day like today in New York.

And then there's the clothes: fun beach totes, gauzy Roberta Freymann tunics, Shoshanna bikinis, Tom Ford or Ray-ban sunglasses and flip-flops for the beach, Tibi and DVF dresses and Jack Rogers for parties, and espadrilles....

Oh, the espadrilles! We got to thinking of espadrilles and summer in an interview for an upcoming feature. Here are some of our favorites for this season. We love the bold stripes of the Tory Burch straps and the light-enough for daytime gold stripes on the Kate Spade flats. The neutral Corso Como pair would look great with other summer neutrals as a blank canvas for some bold statement accessories.

Corso Como, $159 at Bloomingdales
Kate Spade, $99 at Bloomingdales

Tory Burch, $165 at Bloomingdales

Dominican Republic

Our recent trip to the Dominican Republic was full of near death experiences adventure. From rides in pint size pick up trucks to a four hour long relaxing donkey ride to an off-the-track organic coffee farm owned by our creative director, Ryan's, relatives, we loved every minute of it. Here we share some of our more inspiring photographs.
