LA designer and trained architect Laurel Broughton produces "objects and accessories for everyday play." Her local accessories label, Welcome Companions, is beloved by international style stars like Hanneli Mustaparta and features a range of quirky-cool designs that tap into the imagination.
For spring, Broughton has whipped up a 16-piece collection of accessories inspired by picnics. From a strawberry clutch ($720) to a picnic basket satchel ($550) to a silk gingham scarf ($204), each cheeky piece screams Alexa Chung.
Other possible wearers include Zooey Deschanel, DJ/model Harley Viera-Newton and anyone who loves Charlotte Olympia's adorable heels and flats. Shop the Part-Time Picnic collection online or in-store at Creatures of Comfort on Melrose.
