Beyond cool.....

Merge will soon have these AMAZING extra long leggings in stretch cotton poplin from Twin-Set (Italy). I'll be getting black, khaki, and white. $135
Wear them with tunics, boyfriend tees, jackets, long sweaters, flats or heels....just WEAR THEM. Instant cool for layering this Spring/Summer. You can scrunch them up and down the leg or let them puddle around the calf/ankle. You choose.

Update: They're here! In fact, I've had to re-order the black color already. I'm so glad that you guys "get it"! This style of legging, be it cotton knit, leather or suede, has been on the european runways for a few years now. I think the stretch cotton interpretation is perfect for that "runway to realway" look. Not to mention a much more reasonable price point!

Rick Owens Interview

One of my most FAVORITE designers in the whole wide world gave this amazing interview-follow the link.
In another world, my whole wardrobe would consist of this man's clothing (....ahhhhhh...I MUST own the sweater above. If anyone knows where I can get it, CALL ME!) I always try to bring his aesthetic into the mix at MERGE at more understandable price points (i.e. Enza Costa, Scatola Knits, Ilaria Nistri, Jarbo Collection etc...) So far, so good!!

+Beryll vintage belts

I"m getting in a re-order on the AMAZING +Beryll vintage Italian army belts due in the shop at the end of May. I only have limited quantities, so I decided to start a pre-sale list. Sizes available are S and M (these are men's sizes so take that into consideration). You've probably seen these belts pop up in several fashion spreads over the last few months...there are only a few hundred left in existance as the designers at +Beryll found 1200 hundred of them in an old warehouse in Italy. They scooped them up, re-treated/fashioned them and began selling them globally. I had them in the store several months ago, and thought I should bring a few more in if they were available. And, voila! they were!! So, I'll have them at the end of May.
Give me a call if you want in on the list. $285
