Summer in the City

Summer in the City

The times we are living in are really keeping us tethered close to home. I felt fortunate to spend a few weeks in Maine,  out of the heat with my family.  It was nice to be reminded that simple pleasures bring great joy and I am grateful for the lovely meals we shared, the blue sky days and the peace and quiet.

At Sotre, we have some new summer arrivals and little gifts of the season so that you can treat yourself or your friends and family. We have selected products because they are natural, sustainable and responsible or because the companies that manufacture  or distribute these items I highly recommend travel by car - these days it is a true joy to travel long distances on the open road.  Bring your new treasures with you.....


The Candle

Baobab Collection has been using raffia as material for the summer collections of its scented candles for the past three years. This noble material is crocheted by hand by Malagasy women artisans who are part of a rural community located a few kilometers from the capital of Madagascar. Their knowledge of this traditional craft, passed down from the mothers or grandmothers, allows them to feed their families. 

Baobob Nosy Be candle starting at $125.

The Summer Handbag

Founded in 2015 by two Japanese friends living in Paris, this Parisian brand designing bohemian and nomadic accessories that blend French elegance and influences from around the world. The founders Noriko Ishizaka and Hiromi Sasaki share a passion for travel and draw their inspirations from the encounters, adventures and trends to their accessories that bring an air of vacances to the everyday city life.  This relaxed chic collection is infused with a summertime spirit that will make you feel as though on vacation no matter where the sunny days take you. These sophisticated bags, sandals and hats with contemporary shapes and motifs will enliven city life as well as beach getaways.

The Robe

A cool swirl of purple and blue make this shawl collar bathrobe a standout. Printed on soft, midweight, 100% cotton poplin. Contrast-colored piping.
