Style File // The Collector

“The Collector” is centralized around the idea of curating a collection based on exceptional quality and unique taste. This week’s Style File features The Purple and Blue Carter Check from our current Short Run Shirting Collection and our Free Union Belt from The Commonwealth Collection. The Purple and Blue Carter Check is subtle in color, making it a great tonal piece to layer up for Fall. The complimentary color story of Shipley & Halmos’ mustard cardigan and Dolce & Gabbana’s deep olive corduroy trousers with the warm neutral tones of The Free Union Belt and Leather Zip Boots from Era Vintage create a cohesive composition that project an image of style without being too aggressive.

We’re also highlighting several pieces from Era Vintage. Era is an online shop featuring a wide range of carefully curated vintage home accessories and other items with a goal of offering both high end as well as affordable collectibles, focusing on pieces from the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Era Vintage is owned by one of Ledbury’s own, Diana Mathews (pictured). Diana is an integral member of the Ledbury fulfillment team. While she spends a good bit of time picking, packing and shipping off shirts, she’s also pursuing a long time dream of owning and operating a successful shop for vintage goods.

Publication: Under/Current Magazine, Under/Current is an arts and fashion periodical where quietly subversive editorial,. forward-looking ideas and vanguard photography meet. Visually rich and provocative, each issue is conceived around a unique concept, with themes that are often epic, engaging and playful. Collaborating with both established and emerging talent, Under/Current offers lasting relevance within a rapidly changing cultural climate. Uncer/current invites a wayward approach to its themes, allowing space for fashion editorials that bring personal vision and expression to the fore. In combination with sumptuous imagery, Under/current presents penetrating interviews with leading cultural figures and thinkers, handson explorations of artists work and essays that critically examine our cultural landscapes.

  • Love the Style Finder! Thank you for introducing us to Era. I just purchsed those great looking boots fro $25.00. I wish I lived in Richmond now so I could not only visit Ledbury, but now Era.

  • Great to hear, Mark! Hope you enjoy those boots. If you’re around Richmond any time in November or December, Era is hosting a pop-up shop at Modern Artifacts in Carytown. (modernartifactsrva.com) Cheers!
