Fall Two Ways

Fall, Two Ways


In LA, the seasonal shift from summer to fall might be slight, but that doesn’t mean Californians don’t get the same back-to-school thrills pulling out cashmere sweaters and heavier down comforters as the air starts to get crisp and the days shorter. We checked in with designer Jenni Kayne, who on the eve of her first-ever home collection launch has been feeling equally nostalgic. In fact, the line, which reflects Kayne’s easygoing, minimalist aesthetic and includes textiles sourced from Peru and candles made right here in LA, is primed for cozying up and staying in.

Meanwhile, further up the coast in SF, where goop’s Britt Pattner lives with her husband Justin, temperatures may have hovered in the mid-60s all summer long, but that doesn’t stop them from heading back East to the Hamptons for a fall fix that includes apple picking and brisk morning beach walks. Below, Kayne and Pattner share how they get ready for sweater weather. (Hint, it has nothing to do with a pumpkin spice latte.)
