Mood [ April ]

Mood [ April ]

Here at Dandelion Post, we are constantly finding inspiration around our beloved city of Oakland - whether it be the local architecture, vibrant street art, a sidewalk vendor's floral arrangement or just a good old fashion sunset. In an effort to hold on to and share these moments, we have taken to translating them into wearable outfits -- just for you!

For our first go, we stuck close to home. If you have popped into our store location, I am sure you stopped to admire the mural on the side of our building done by incredible local artist, Lena Gustafson. This mural has us feeling the coolness of the navy as it coincides with the vibrant pops of color; of finding or making your own paradise while remaining in a city dwelling.

Studio Visit with 3rd Season Designs

Studio Visit with 3rd Season Designs

I first saw 3rd Season Designs at a Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco and immediately knew they would be a part of my store (of which didn't exist at the time). Their Cosmic Collection caught my eye within a sea of makers as something totally unique and special. Each season they push themselves using different techniques to create original textile designs. Then those cool textile prints are handmade in California into effortless and modern pieces, so you can wear a little piece of their art. 

Q&A with Mabel Martinez & Alycia Anthony of 3rd Season

How did you two meet and why did you decide to work together?

Alycia and I first met in college. We were both studying Fine Art and became best friends. We both share an obsession with textiles and all things fabric. We wanted to explore various traditional techniques while remaining influenced by our artistic foundation.

Can you describe the process for creating your textiles and collections?

When starting a new collection, we set aside special days that we call “Playtime”. We choose a couple of mediums or techniques to explore ideas that we have been gathering on our phones and notebooks. This part of the process is more exploration than anything else. From there, we focus on few to pursue further.

Tell us about your band name.

Our name symbolizes both of us being born in the 3rd season of the year and, starting our business during the 3rd decade of our lives – our 30’s.

How do you spend your free time?

Alycia plays the ukulele and is pretty good! I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. Together, we enjoy going to local gigs and art shows as well as traveling.

What was your inspiration for the new collection?

The inspiration for the Inverse Collection was a recent trip we took to South East Asia. Alycia is originally from Malaysia and we got to visit as well as take a Batik workshop in Malaysia and Indonesia. We developed our process of painting with hot wax and when we arrived back home, we recreated the workshop in our studio. The idea of “inverse” relates to the idea of the wax protecting the fabric versus covering when you paint directly using dyes.

What are the goals for 3rd Season?

We are in the beginning stages of launching a swimwear line for next summer and possibly adding some pieces for men. Still don’t know if it will make the cut but we love trying new things. We would love for 3rd Season to become a total lifestyle brand!

Any makers or designers you are infatuated right now?

We’re really into Paloma Wool and Samuji at the moment. We love the work and process of Cara Marie Piazza.

 Inside their Studio

Not too far from where I grew up, Mabel and Alycia design and make their modern textile driven collections in the cutest house in the Historic District of Pomona. On a recent visit home, I was able to connect with them to see their space in person.

What textile lover doesn't want more pillows?! These are made of fabrics from past collections. The woven bags were brought back from their South East Asia trip.

Summer Sun Style

Summer Sun Style

Summer doesn't have to be about flashy colors and nearly there clothing. At least not when you live in the Bay Area:) Our Summer Sun shoot was about muted tones and easy going style.
