Sep 15 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

We are thrilled to welcome Nadia Bevegni and her stunning hand-felted creations to the shop this weekend! We can hardly wait for Nadia to return from her month in Italy each summer where she shops for silk remnants in couture fashion houses which become the basis for her Fall collection. Her sense of color and unique wool felting technique turn a square of silk into luxe scarves like you have never seen – truly works of art.
We are honored to be Nadia’s sole retailer, so if you are looking for an extraordinary gift for someone special, don’t miss this opportunity to check out Nadia’s collection. In addition to scarves, she will be bringing her new wool felted flower necklaces/collars that are incredible!

ITEM m6 @ Dovecote Style
Sep 22 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

We are stepping out of the box this weekend to bring you one of the most innovative health and beauty finds we have seen in ages from our favorite leg and shape wear company ITEM m6: Exclusive Anti-Cellulite Beauty Tights!!! This miracle leg wear has particles of ceramic crystals melted into the compression fabric that reflect the body’s own heat and convert it into infrared radiation which penetrates into deeper layers of the skin to stimulate the breakdown of fat cells. Regular daily wear improves the appearance of cellulite for more beautiful legs!

We know and love ITEM m6 for their fashion forward compression socks, thigh highs and socks that target pressure points to increase blood circulation, boost energy and reduce the swollen ankles that often come with long-haul flights. A must for anyone who travels or is on their feet all day – like our Executive Chef Colin Bedford at The Fearrington House Restaurant. Available for men and women, this game-changing leg wear combines fashion with decades of expertise in compression technology.
Sanaz McCartney joins us with a plethora of knowledge regarding all the benefits of this innovative high performance leg and shape wear developed by the German high-tech manufacturer medi. Slip something on and let us demonstrate the before and after differences this shape wear can make. Look great, feel great!

Lisette L. @ Dovecote Style
Sep 29 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

For over a decade, Lisette L has been designing women’s pants with a purpose: crafting that perfect fit for all women and all body types. The origin of Lisette L Montreal came from Lisette Limoges’ desire to create a fashion line for women where fit came first. “Of course we wanted to make sure we were creating styles that were on-trend, but we wanted pants that fit right,” says Limoges. “I believe we have created a line that fits women of all ages and lifestyles.”
Lisette L pants are known to flatter women of every body type, shape and size with a tummy control mesh on the inside that hugs and shapes. Having been featured in fashion publications from Town & Country, to Elle, to Harper’s Bazaar, join us this weekend and find out what the buzz is about. This is the original pant line that changed everything and set a new standard in terms of “perfect fit.” We are so excited to welcome Guy Bailey and Lisette L Montreal to Dovecote!

NFP Studio @ Dovecote Style
Oct 6 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

We love clever, and I find it impossible to talk about this intriguing line without “clever” coming to mind! NFP (New Form Perspective) fosters the concept of transition, transformation and evolution. Designer Gail Travis has designed a collection of smart geometric shapes and styles that are of the moment but not bound by time. Each piece has the ability to link, layer, fold, snap, shift or connect, creating a platform for personal expression – ultimately encouraging each individual’s “new form and perspective.” No one demonstrates  this collection quite like Gail, so join us this weekend and watch her explore the world of possibilities within this fabulous collection!
Designer Gail Travis resides in Beacon, NY, where she works out of her flagship storefront/studio located on Main Street. After working in the high-end fashion world in NYC for the past 10 years for companies such as Calvin Klein and Vera Wang, she has fatefully been guided to design her own brand free from mainstream trends. Her collection is inspired by her surroundings, personal interactions, experience of movement, and architecture and sculpture. Ultimately these inspirations morph into the modular, building-block nature of her designs.
