Cue the Music: Grey Noise

I love grey. It commands authority, and conveys a controlled and classic point of view. But the human eye can distinguish about 500 shades of grey, which means that there’s also a lot of unsettling intrigue buried therein. Grey is captivating, too, because it occupies the space between two extremes: black and white. It’s no secret that life’s most interesting nuances exist in the “grey area.” When it came time to create EM branding, grey was a no-brainer. Grey Noise maintains a a steady bassline,…

Love List

I used to work at a company where the CEO’s own personal life mantra was painted prominently on the wall in a common area for all to aspire and adhere to. It read: On purpose, Off self. Perhaps the irony was lost on him.

Cue the Music: An Evening In

There are very few genres of music that I come back to as often as I do to jazz. Unless I’m looking to rage, or act very bossy, jazz has a way of enhancing every of my moods. If I want to bring the brood while sipping some bourbon? Lush Life by Coltrane. Escape off in a daydream? Moon River by Vince Guaraldi. Put a mischievous swagger in my step? Summertime, Oscar Peterson’s live version from his “Oscar Peterson in Russia” record. Besides my weakness…

Hi

Let’s ease into it, and start with the easy stuff. First, welcome the blog! I’m so glad you stopped by, and I hope you’ll be back often. Let me introduce myself, and tell you a little bit about what you can expect as a reader. I’m Emily, and I founded the EMILY MEYER label not quite a year ago. I started the company with the goal of making the current womenswear game better by creating something…
