Slow Living: Resort

Often, we forget that we are fortunate to be thriving in the tropics. We slip into the exalted
anthems of daily hustle. We are bitten by the beast of busy-ness. We fall into the daily
habit of chasing and racing against basically everything. We forget that the bustle never
really stops. And then, we wear ourselves down until a voice in the head screams, “Take a
break. Hit the beach!”

The pristine white beaches of Boracay.

The allure of white sandy beaches lies in its potency to allow us to believe that we are
enough for the moment. It is an essential alternative to all the doing, pushing and striving.
Indeed, it is time to consecrate rest, to sanctify stillness and slowness.

We hear you. On November 25, we huddle kindred brands that understand the language of
slow living. Be in good, meaningful company in a soulful afternoon of that laid-back vibe.
Lose yourself in the wholehearted passion of select designers and curators. Together, let us
celebrate the slow and revere in thoughtful design as we unearth those personal, destined finds.

Yes, with a refreshing drink in hand.

Stockton Row Studio presents the third volume of Slow Living Resort
on November 25, 2015, Arya Residences, Bonifacio Global City.
Hosted by Due Porte by Marielle Santos-Po and Rosanna Ocampo.

Slow and Chill – Studio Playlists

Chill and Slow Music for Slow Living with Stockton Row
As our Slow Living trunk show approaches, the more we get inspired everyday by this way
of life. What better way to surround yourself with the idea of slowness than with music.
Pour yourself some coffee and sit back, whether you’re at the office, at school or
at home. Curated just for you, we’ve got tracks from local and global artists with just the
right amount of downbeats and acoustic strumming. Get the Stockton Row
take on Slow Living in slow and chill music right here.

On Slow Living

Let’s admit it. We’re workaholics. And not just any workaholic, we’re the passion-
driven, ambitious, out-to-change-the-world type of workaholic. Our profiles consist of
“Sleep is for the weak.” retweets and Berlin art-parasites reposts quoting Lady Gaga.
Between Electric Studio, trying to get our start up off the ground, plus everything in
between, all we pretty much do all week is hustle.  But should life really be this way?

Slow Living: A Makers' Commune on Casual Culture

Strip it down. Discard the objects and habits that take away from daily fulfillment.
Make the lifestyle choices that will bring you more through less. That’s what
Slow Living is all about – focusing your energies on what brings you
a more balanced and holistic life by investing in yourself,  in authenticity,
and in meaning.

Most people will translate this into an interest in the sustainable
and handmade. Or into going about life always with a cup of loose-leaf tea
in hand, ready to kick back and savor the moment. But for girls on the go whose
biggest luxury is time, this could be a bigger variety of things. Practice voluntary
mindfulness, even in the flurry of Mondays through Fridays, and make small but
significant choices that will make you feel complete.

This Saturday, September 26, we invite you to take a step back. Have a cup of coffee on us,
not to get you moving, but to enjoy the company of a breeze. (We’ve got some sangria and
a few bites too.) We’ve gathered together some amazing brands and designers who
celebrate just that  – the everyday slowness lost between our mouse clicks and WhatsApp
messages and the beauty of a simple casual lifestyle.

Check out what’s in store this Saturday below.

Amarie by Anne at Slow Living

Taking inspiration from the beautiful islands of the Philippines,
Amarie by Anne’s pieces embody the relaxed lifestyle of the tropics.

Barr-Co.

Barr-Co prides itself with creating eco-friendly, quality goods
that are made in small batches. They offer a laid back kind of luxury
with their dreamy mixes for the home and body.

Bungalow 300 at Slow Living

A concept store from the South, Bungalow 300 specializes in furniture
and objects for inspired living. Their style mixes vintage and modern,
with pieces perfect for creating a lovely home.

Cote Bastide at Slow Living

Drawing its inspiration from forgotten lessons, Cote Bastide wants to reawaken
our dormant senses and to remind us of the simple pleasures in life.
With products that are familiar with the fragrance of an age old rose, hand-crafted
earthenware, cinnamon and other rare yet familiar notes, we rediscover
the daily pleasures that should be enjoyed and not forgotten.

Mich Araullo at Slow Living

Mich Araullo’s garments are intricately crafted, romantic, sweet and evidently
feminine. Born in the South, she is very laid back and outgoing, a personality that translates into her designs as well.

Statement Theory at Slow LivingStatement Theory curates brands from all over the globe to find pieces
that punctuate your personal style. Discover items that will help make your
home a haven for rest and relaxation.

Sunday Paper at Slow LivingPhoto by Jamie Catt for Sunday Paper

Sunday Paper creates paper goods that are simple, functional and worthy
to be shared. Each piece, made with minimal design and sentimentality,
enables a slower, more appreciative lifestyle, more grateful for the everyday.

Wabi Sabi at Slow LivingWith leather as their medium, each Wabisabi piece represents a comprehensive
Japanese worldview centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.

Throwback to Tolendo

32480008Long, beaded necklaces are always in trend and a Stockton Row classic that fits that is the
Tolendo. Coming from the very first collection, Mysteries of Valencia it has become a
Stockton Row style staple. It’s fun, really easy to wear and adds texture to your look. You
can basically pair it with anything from the plainest t-shirts to dresses, and even
swimsuits. We like mixing it with our current brass pieces as it gives the overall look a soft
touch. It’s an accessory that is very easy to play and style with.
Tolendo 4
Combining necklaces in different lengths is part of the style game, the Tolendo necklace
comes in three lengths: 16”, 28”, 32”. And to add to that variety, the Tolendo necklace is
available in a variety of semi-precious stones. 
You can also wear them in doubles or triples
for added personality. It’s really just mixing and matching what fits your personal style.

We’re going back to basics,

Branding 101

hh_caroissaxharlanholden

Earlier this year, Harlan + Holden enlisted the help of Tank Form Creative Agency, headed
by Caroline Issa, for their branding and identity. Lucky for fashion students and alumni,
they decided to share the process with us.

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset

It was immensely inspiring. Having a keen interest in graphic design, business, and
fashion, I felt like candy (vegan candy, thanks to Harlan + Holden) was being handed to
me all morning. I loved the idea of visualizing the soul of a company into typefaces, colors,
logos, and its endless extensions. The cherry on top of it all was Caroline and her wealth of
experience in the global design industry.

As the little nerd herd that we are, we’ve collated some notes from the roundtable
discussion for all you aspiring designers and entrepreneurs. Read on to find our little
abridged version of Branding 101 through the eyes of Caroline Issa and Harlan + Holden.

Good branding is future proof.
Try to stay away from branding that might be too of-the-moment. Your
branding should be able to stand the test of time, regardless of current trends. Less
might actually be more.

They key is consistency.
Always go back to your brand bible. The best brands are able to evolve a great deal
while still keeping what’s important to them at their core. And finally:

Your branding is only as good as your pieces.
The truth is branding extends beyond the visual pretty of color palettes and logos.
Follow through with every design to truly deliver what you stand for as a brand, as a
designer, and as a person.

Over and out,

Hello!
