Saks Fifth Avenue Launch Party 11.3.16

Thanks to everyone who attended the HonourMark Launch Party at Saks Fifth Avenue in San Francisco, CA. An evening full of the New California Casual, we were enthused to be able to showcase HonourMark's exclusive lifestyle collection of outerwear, knits, button up shirts and bottoms with the luxury retailer.

The Denim Jacket

Understanding where something came from allows an adaptation that not only celebrates the characteristics that have stayed intact through the years, but it gives reason to offer it in a way that has not quite been done before.

An effortless day at Freeman Winery

Native Northern California wine growing vineyards, Freeman Winery was established in 2001 by Ken and Akiko Freeman.  In their words, "With an aesthetic drawn from, and in harmony with, the beauty of its surroundings, the Freeman Winery is like a philosophical extension of the wines—offering grace without unnecessary excess."  
After our day there, we couldn't agree more.

The Discovery: Finding our place

While type is subjective, there are some general attributes to the different categories of typefaces. Hairline serifs (top left) convey elegance and sophistication, sans serif (top right) are straightforward, serifs (bottom left) are functional and legible, while slab serifs (bottom right) are masculine and sporty.

For good reason, they have to be beautiful, versatile and also practical within the constraints of space. All of these are great descriptions for the type of emotion we want to go towards for HonourMark."
