Authier, the 100-year-old ski brand that was recently revived by Aspen local
Lee Keating and brand creative director Gustavo Sangiorgi, is designed with
smart details in mind. Case in point: Hand sewn into each one of the jackets,
puffers and vests is a label featuring an iconic Italian ski destination, like
Cervinia, Sestriere and Asiago, along with whimsical
illustrations that capture the jet-set glamour of the sport’s heyday.

Every Saturday I head over to Fort Greene to spend my day outside, rummaging through the Brooklyn Flea. The Flea features a mix of 100+ vendors selling handmade arts and crafts, vintage clothing, antique furniture and collectibles, as well as amazing local food and much more. I always leave feeling fully inspired to either take on a new D.I.Y. project or revamp my apartment. The Flea has recently expanded to a new site on the Williamsburg waterfront every Sunday as well, so you can enjoy two days of shopping outdoors. Check out their site for a list of all vendors, directions and upcoming events.
