Marrakech: home of balmy weather, bustling souks and beautiful palm groves. Last month, the Jigsaw Photography Team headed for North Africa’s must-visit city to shoot our High Summer shoot on location. Here’s the story behind the shoot in Jigsaw Production Coordinator Francesca’s own words:

“Morocco gave us so much as a location from beautiful landscapes to incredible natural light and traditional riad architecture. All 3 days were spent shooting from sunrise to sunset to capture that amazing light and really showcase the clothes in such stunning surroundings. The local Berber tribe cooked delicious tagine for our lunches out in the desert, and made fresh mint tea in the afternoons. Meeting them and getting to know their culture was a special experience. Any challenges? Too many beautiful shots to choose from…but I have to say that!”

WHERE TO EAT
Bo-Zin, Douar Lahna, Route de l’Ourika 3.5km, Marrakech
“Chilled, lounge atmosphere with great cocktails and post dinner DJ… The new town is very Cosmo-cool.” WHERE TO STAY

Hotel Les Deux Tours, Circuit de la Palmeraie – BP, 153 Douar Abiad, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
“Stunning grounds covered with mandarin and jasmine trees, full of gorgeous traditional features… Instagram dream!”

MothersDay

Jessi and Ally Case spent the weekend at the Jigsaw store in Santa Monica, and brought along a very special guest- their mom! They spent the day playing dress up in our classic pieces and the SS15 collection, preparing for our Instagram competition (a Mother’s Day giveaway! Follow @jigsawsays or click here for details), and shared some of their favorite things about their mom, Diane.

13

Jigsaw: Tell us about your day in the store with your mom!

Ally: It was such a great time- the store is beautiful! We dressed up in different outfits, took lots of pictures, and just had tons of fun.My sister and I loved picking out outfits for my mom and styling her. It was great finding a store the three of us could shop at and each express our own unique style! Jigsaw’s pieces work for all ages, and with Mother’s Day coming up they make perfect Mother’s Day gifts!

Jessi: I couldn’t stop smiling all day just watching how happy my mom was seeing herself in all of the beautiful clothes and shoes. Being able to style my mom with Ally was so much fun- she looked beautiful and her smile seemed to last forever! We all felt so nice in all of the quality-made clothing at Jigsaw.

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 1.25.29 PM

Jigsaw: Which pieces did you love trying on?

Jessi: My favorite piece, by far, was the pair of maroon Twill pants. I can’t even explain how soft they are! The color is perfect, and you can make it edgy with a black chunky boot, or pointed pumps for a more sophisticated look. I also loved pairing of the Square Cut Silk Shirt with any of the twill pants- this is the perfect summer blouse that you can really wear with anything!

Ally: My favorite piece was definitely the Misty Garden Maxi Dress. It’s so comfortable and perfect for summer! I would wear it with a pair of open toe chunky heeled sandals or gladiator sandals with my hair in a loose braid. I also really like the Pleat Front Day Dress. It’s the perfect length and perfect for a business casual day paired with black pumps. Or for a more casual summer day, with a pair of sandals or flats. Overall, the brand is amazing! Every item is a quality piece of work.

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 1.51.19 PM

Jigsaw: What about your mom inspires you?

Ally: My mom inspires me with her perseverance, her generosity, and her support. My mom is always striving to be the best possible version of herself, and goes out of her way to be a sharing and giving person in order to make peoples lives better. Having her as a role model is incredibly inspiring. Her support is everything to me! She has always been behind us (my brother, Jessi, & I) through everything. Her amazing support has allowed us to continue doing what we love. I cannot thank my mom enough for everything that she does. Her love for us is unconditional!

Jessi:  My mom always puts us first with absolutely everything. Instead of buying herself a nice pair of shoes she would rather buy a pair for one of us kids, no matter how badly she might need them. I couldn’t stop smiling all day just watching how happy my mom was seeing herself in all of the beautiful clothes and shoes at Jigsaw. It felt so good to see the most inspiring, kind-hearted and well-spirited person in my life look so happy and beautiful. My mother is one beautiful human being.

Summer is around the corner, and you know what that means- summer events! Let us help you dress for a special occasion with a few of our favorite new pieces; whether you’re going to a daytime wedding, a backyard barbecue, or night on the town, we’ve got you covered!

SpecialOccasionsThe Day Dress: Our Utility Shirt Dress is perfect for achieving a chic weekend look. You could easily dash from running errands to a lunch with friends. Take advantage of the neutral color and simple shape- dress it up with a pop of color! Try that statement bag or printed shoe you’ve been wanting to wear!

The Bold Dress: Embrace summer with our Sunset Dip Dye Cotton Sundress. This gorgeous, hand-painted print will make you the center of attention! This flattering silhouette is perfect for date-night, weddings, or a cocktail party. Pair with black pumps, your favorite wrap, and a metallic clutch for a sharp look.

The Maxi Dress: The new, silk Misty Garden Maxi Dress is the versatile piece you’ve been waiting for- it is stunning no matter how you wear it! Go casual with flats and a thin belt, throw on strappy sandals and load up on bangles for a beach-y look, or add a bit of edge with low boots and your favorite moto jacket.

The Classic Dress: You can’t go wrong with a little black dress! The classic shape of the Paris Fit Sleeveless Dress lends itself to a gorgeous, sophisticated look- throw on some red lipstick and break out the hot rollers! The beauty of a simple, flattering LBD is that is serves as a perfect palette to play dress up (and will probably go with most of the accessories sitting in your closet)!

SpecialOccasionsAccessories

Add some shine with the Perforated Gold Clutch, or go for a sleek look with the Black Beaded Flower Clutch. The Monique City Sandal is the perfect summer shoe to dress up or down year-round! Take your look from day to night with the Perforated Navy Clutch, or keep things light with the Neutral Beaded Flower Clutch.

SpecialOccasionsBeautyWe have a major Charlotte Tilbury obsession- can you tell? Stock up on a few key items and downsize your beauty bag for your special occasion! For a day look we love the Filmstar On The Go Palette in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Get glowing skin for your special occasion with Magic Cream Moisturizer and Wonder Glow Primer. Coat your lashes in Charlotte’s Full Fat Lashes Mascara. For the evening, make a statement at your event with the Luxury Eye Palette in “Fallen Angel” and finish off your look with Luscious Lip Slick in “Love Liberty”.

Meet Molly R. Stern- beauty guru, artist, professional photo-bomber, and beyond fabulous makeup artist. She is responsible for creating Reese Witherspoon’s stunning awards season makeup, Julianna Margulies’ fresh face when she won the 2014 Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress, and countless other looks we’ve been coveting (and trying to mimic!) over the years . We sat down with Molly to chat about her all-time beauty favorites, and tips for a flawless spring look.

Untitled-2Untitled-3Untitled-4Untitled-5

What drew you to beauty, and how did you get started doing celebrity makeup?

I always loved makeup as a young girl. It was how I expressed myself and I used it to transform myself when I need a break for my day to day. Growing up in LA made it easy to gravitate towards the celebrity version of makeup artistry. I always say growing up in LA is like growing up in a coal mining town. You just sort of do what the land offers you.

 What is one product you can’t live without year-round?
Blush! Specifically cream blush.
What is a fun trend to try this spring if you’re looking to mix up your beauty routine?
I love a wash of color on your eyes. One tone across the lid, no big deal. Push the boundaries! Try a bright yellow or a minty blue. Done simple it can look really modern.
Which beauty trend should you steer clear of?
Contour! When not used correctly it can really look like dirt.
 What has been your favorite beauty experience so far this year?
All of awards season was pretty awesome this year. My longtime client and dear friend, Reese Witherspoon, was nominated for every award; getting to create new looks back-to-back-to-back with her and her team was challenging in the best sort of way and totally inspiring! I loved it!
 What are 4 items you need to create a fresh, everyday look this spring?
Concealer, lip color, cream blush, mascara.
springbeauty

Shop the look…

Splurge: Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation, NARS Matte Velvet Lip Pencil in “Bolero”, Laura Mercier Cream Blush in “Blaze”, Lancome Hypnose Mascara

Steal: L’oreal Sublime Glow Tinted Moisturizer, Revlon Colorburst Matte Lipbalm in “Mischevious”, E.l.f. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Cream, Covergirl Lashblast Length Mascara

NAUTICALSpring has sprung and the nautical trend is back to give your wardrobe a fresh new feel. Captivating designers and fashion enthusiasts alike season after season, it’s a trend with serious staying power. Featuring heavily on SS15 catwalks, seafaring motifs were spotted at Fashion Week shows including Stella McCartney and J.W. Anderson. Deep sea tones reigned supreme at Markus Lupfer and Roksanda Ilincic, whilst wave-like embroidery and crisp whites at Milan Fashion Week nodded to the theme.

Fresh blues and iconic stripes make for a clean, classic look. The iconic Breton, beloved by Coco Chanel, it made the transition from utility to fashion when she channeled its stripes into her 1917 collection. Elevated to haute couture by enfant terrible Jean Paul Gaultier and worn by luminaries from Pablo Picasso and James Dean to Audrey Hepburn and Alexa Chung, it remains a key wardrobe staple.

First up we have epic style icon, Bianca Jagger. When she wasn’t riding a horse into notorious NYC club Studio 54, Bianca was dashing about town in slick trouser suits, and androgynous, fashion-forward looks. Opting for a chic Yves Saint Laurent skirt suit for her wedding to Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger cemented her status as a serious fashionista.

Original supermodel Kate Moss has become synonymous with laid back luxe tailoring. Pairing a charcoal jacket and skinny trousers with Converse for everyday wear and stepping up the look for the red carpet with a smokey eye and stilettoes, Ms. Moss definitely knows the power of a sharp suit.

From bold patterns to all white ensembles, offbeat musician Solange flies the flag for sleek suits. Whether she’s working the red carpet in color clash shorts and a tuxedo jacket or cycling away from her wedding in a structured jumpsuit, the younger Knowles sister has proven herself a true sartorial star.

agate-coverBlue hues and intricate pattern flows through our Spring Summer 2015 collection, especially with the arrival of our new agate print. We caught up with Jigsaw Print Designer Lisa Berridge to hear all about the design process behind it…

“At the start of every season, we put our mood boards together andfind images from all kinds of different sources: photographers, art exhibitions, nature in general… From there, I did lots of research– the print needed to fit into our color palette for the season. It was created using couture printing and the placement had to fit the garment exactly – it took three months to get it right! I usually create a painting and hand it over to the studio team but this time I had to get involved in making sure the print matched up on the other side of the Agate Print Structured Dress, making surethe seams matched the seams… The juxtaposition between the blue tones and the white background on the Agate Placement Skirt is very beautiful. The way the agate billows down the skirt is just like its natural form.

 

quote

Believed to be named for the Sicilian River Achates, the beauty of agate has been documented for thousands of years. Formed in fractures between ancient lava flows, each agate stone’s colour is affected by pressure, changes in temperature and mineral content. Unsurprisingly, its signature band of pattern has captivated the world and has even been ascribed mystical powers such as protection from heavy weather and danger. Inspired by the new season print, we looked to London’s Natural History Museum to discover the impressive agate specimens in its collection. Whilst they may not be as colorful as our Spring Summer 2015 print, it’s hard not to be amazed by their intricate markings:
