Handmade in Los Angeles, California, Crescioni pieces are designed to age and weather over time. Argentinian Vegetable-tanned leathers darken and soften with wear. Natural brass tarnishes after prolonged use. While the design is bold and minimal, there is something organic and casual about all of her designs that make Crescioni pieces super wearable and decidedly western.

I know we’re all thinking about spring and summer and lightweight frocks and gauzy caftans right now, but I’m actually pinching my pennies for Finisterre’s next fall winter line. If this winter from hell was a harbinger of our new climate-change reality, well, I’m not going to be caught with my pants down the next time our mercury dips far, far below zero.

The Winter Session aesthetic has long been one of unisex utilitarianism. Materials are chosen for their hardiness and durability, resulting in a rugged ethos that retains a high level of sophistication despite heavy wear.
