ART AS FASHION: ROI DU LAC
8 PEN.ss19.guide2.indd 8
Roi du Lac is an Italian collection based on the unique designs of Marco Kinloch. This art-inspired and truly original collection is not common in today’s fashion world, which makes it all the more special. In Old-World style, Marco begins the design process by hand painting his drawings in elegant water colors before reproducing them on beautiful silks and cottons. Each season he focuses on a different theme to create his collection of beautiful blouses and dresses. For spring 2019, you’ll see the influence of the Mexican Riviera and the world of Diego Rivera, translated through Marco’s artistic eye, with a color palette that is beautiful and elegant.
You’ve passed by it a thousand times—across the street from the HEB on San Felipe and a few doors down from Ginza and Fu’s Garden. With its characteristically unassuming storefront, Liquor Source offers everything you would expect from a neighborhood liquor store, topped off with an extraordinary service. If you’re hosting a large dinner party, a shower, or maybe a wedding and need to stock the bar, you will want to put their number on speed dial. After assessing your needs and desires with Ron, your alcohol and mixers will arrive at your venue a few hours before your event, along with plenty of back-up so there’s no fear of running out. Next day they return to your venue and take back everything that wasn’t opened and you pay only for what was consumed. How’s that for stress-free?!
