Crushing On: Partners & Spade

I’ve been researching what seems like a million and a half things for various projects. While the to-do list itself can seem overwhelming from time to time, I have what I like to call “gem moments” almost every single day. I swear, just as I’m going to throw my arms in the air and just lay my head down on my desk, I stumble on the perfect thing. 
9 times out of 10, the “gem” that I find absolutely doesn’t contribute to my research for that particular project. But they’re so inspiring or just so perfect that I can’t help but feel a little more energized. Revitalized even.
An almost dead-end search had me on the Partners & Spade website. Did I drool on my desk? Maybe. I was so intrigued by the whimsical advertisements for some of my favorite brands. Unlike some other ads, the wit and the charm are super tangible. It’s like a storybook, but one in which you might actually live in. 
The umbrellas? I just can’t even.

The crewcuts is really quite cute. Larger than life balloon animals, a teepee, a cute dog, and plenty of space to play in… what else could a pint-size person want?

As much as I love the J. Crew ads, the Kate Spade ones really get me. The Carlyle is right in my neighborhood, so of course I just love the adorableness of this one!

Just yes. Absolutely yes.

The advertisements are awesome, but Partners & Spade also do the most beautiful in-store displays (and events too). Can my apartment just look like this? Is that asking too much?
What do you think?

I just don't 'get' the first J Crew ad. What exactly is being sold? Is J Crew a meat distributor? Do they represent butchers? Why is one gentleman sitting on a ladder dressed in a suit? I will say that the ad is memorable and that it caught my attention. But it confuses me more than it motivates me to spend my money at J Crew.


That was for the Men's stores! If you're ever in NYC, you must check them out. Honestly, they're WAY more than clothing stores. Quite the "experience" for shopping!

I love all those ads! I also love the Hermes ads. They always use the best colors in them. It might be because I'm in advertising/marketing, but I appreciate inventive ads more than others.
