Lee Cutrone profiles Doug Collum and Stick Candles for Sotre.
The natural world inspired Douglas Collum’s Stick Candles. His mother, an interior designer, wanted to duplicate similar ones she’d had but used. Happily, Collum’s quest to reproduce the perfect candles cast from sticks, twigs and branches.
Knitting is a multigenerational art in designer Seema Sudan’s family. Seema learned to knit as a child, and today, Seema, her husband Sidney Bertheaud, their daughter Molly and son Liam are continuing the tradition in a modern, high-tech manner. Together, they run Liamolly, a knitwear line that is as sustainable as it is chic – perfect for the select edit of goods at Sotre.
