my clothing & accessories design
east-meets-west minimalism

my site

the look
dressy utilitarian

my concept
useful, economical, modular pieces that can be mix-matched in numerous ways (because why can't fashion be useful and lasting? I think it can!) So I say Maximize your Minimalism!

more press...

furniture (especially chairs from the 50s and 60s), uniforms, repeating patterns, menswear, Oscar Niemeyer, traditional Japanese architecture, the Rimpa School and Ogata Korin's 8-Point Bridge, Matisse, bromeliads, succulents and other waxy flora

particular loves
bamboo, coral, moss, woodgrain, silhouettes & other cut-outs, plastic, low-resolution images, the photo copier, off-registration prints, Max Ernst's Lunar Asparagus, NYC fire call boxes that look like Kannon, Fauvist color sense, the Noguchi Museum, pretty much all of Abstract Expressionism

magazines of current interest
Domino, Elle Decor (British), ARTnews, Art in America, Wallpaper

favorite heel style
the wedge, but a sleek modern interpretation

second favorite
the stiletto

current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.





new rewards program on elaineperlov.com

If you are on our mailing list, you received this email when you got into work this morning.

Here is what it said:

I wanted to personally thank you for your continued interest in Elaine Perlov clothing & accessories design.

I am pleased to announce that we are building a new customer database, so that we can give you more personal attention throughout the year. That means extra perks for returning customers, extra perks for multiple-piece purchases within one order, as well as rewards for total dollars spentwith us, both on our website and in person at our various events.

To give you a good running start in our new Rewards Program, we will take into account all purchases you have made in the last two years, instead of one, dating back to January of 2004.

In the next week you will receive notice about your shopping rewards, which you can use exclusively on elaineperlov.com. Stay tuned for our exciting new Fall lineup!

Thank you so much again.


We are excited about things to come! Please sign our mailing list today. All those on the mailing list will receive unadvertised goodies that the general public doesn't. And starting now, when you shop more, you will get more. (more promo codes, double and triple point shopping weeks, special birthday discounts for Diamond and Platinum customers, advance notice of Limited Editions, secret Preview Links, and much more!) If you have questions, we are always happy to hear from you.

Haha, hardly! But many thanks. I am kind of excited about this idea. In reading through all of my receipt books, etc, I have all of my customers names in my head now. Lots of Elizabeth's. And Megan's. And Anne/Ann's.
