Pinspiration: Lettering & Typography!

pinspiration 1

The power of beautiful type is a subtle one. It’s meant to grab your attention without you even realizing it. It’s part communication tool – part art form. From handwritten scripts to bold block letters, type evokes emotion, tells a story and speaks much louder than…well you know how the rest of that goes. Head over to our  Typography & Lettering board on Pinterest to really see what we mean!

How do you make your mark with fashion?

Boho Chic: now in black & grey!

BOHOWhat better way to start a new week than with some great news?! Even though we’re a little reluctant to turn our backs on summer and set our sights towards fall, our ALL NEW Black & Grey Suede Boho Bags are making the transition a whole lot easier!

Our Suede Boho Collection is full of chic accessories with a rustic flare but the new black and gray options will add a punch of sophistication to your (almost) fall outfits. No matter the occasion, there is a bag to fit your every mood!

Now that summer’s days are already beginning to wane, it’s time to make sure you make a great escape before it’s too late!

San Francisco is home to Mark & Graham, so what better place to get away than our own backyard?! Just outside of the city lay so many great getaway options that feel secluded; like you are in a far flung location tucked into the wilderness within barely 2-hours drive. With just a short car ride, you can suddenly find yourself feeling far removed from the lights in the big city. Here are a couple of our current faves!

This week we are bringing back Toast to Type for a special summertime libatinon! Cassandra LaValle of the blog Coco+Kelley recently mixed up this refreshing and beautiful cocktail and we blushed when we saw she’d accessorized it with our Typographers Cocktail Napkins!!

Based on one of her favorite memories of summer in Washington state – cherries, this cocktail deliciously combines Lillet and gin to create a tart yet sweet treat that we could see ourselves sipping on a particularly warm Summer evening!
