With a harsh winter behind us and spring and summer frolicking ahead, Brooklyn based VallarinoSaltonstall is set to bring its sustainably-minded line to RSPOP, the revolving pop-up storefront in midtown Manhattan. Timeless silhouettes paired with vibrant injections of color will fill the shop, alongside hand-picked, made in the USA accessories, ranging from hats to footwear.

The VallarinoSaltonstall Pop-Up will be the brand’s initial introduction to boutique retailing, wherein customers can experience unique, handmade items. It’s a true collaboration of American made craftsmanship with on-trend, packaged looks for the season. The month long pop-up store will deliver a one-stop shop for perfect weekend getaways. Themed looks will include: Garden Party ensembles with long, airy maxi dresses; Day to Night shifts with Chiffon Kaftans, and Sultry Evenings with A-line draped tanks in eye-catching deep hues.

VallarinoSaltonstall was founded with a clear objective to create extraordinary, sophisticated apparel with unique hand painted fabrics and unconventional tailoring. This April, we invite you to meet the duo behind the brand and take home a piece of wearable art to add to your wardrobe collection.

More on VallarinoSaltonstall:
Almost 10 years ago, as students at Savannah College of Art and Design we shared a dream of creating our own clothing line that would represent our outgoing, artistic personalities.  After SCAD, we took divergent but complimentary paths, each learning the rigors of the business in New York City: Vanessa in textile/print design at Li & Fung, and Hattie in production at Badgley Mischka. Today, we are thrilled to partner and put our dreams into action with the creation of Vallarino Saltonstall. Visit

The duo first met in 2006 while collaborating on runway accessories for Cynthia Rowley in Hong Kong. Bhava is named after the designers' shared devotion to purity and consideration for others, the highest form of Bhava. This collection sets a new standard in footwear design by sourcing the highest quality hand-woven, organic, recycled and cruelty free components. The Bhava aesthetic represents timeless elegance with a dose of ingénue charm. Our mission is to create a harmonious footwear experience, as in tune with our environment as our spirit.
