Wandering through the eclectic neighborhood of LA’s Silver Lake, we stumbled upon a local shop that had us swooning: Vacation Vinyl. Like searching for buried treasure, what makes shopping at a record store so fun is digging for the good stuff—and Vacation Vinyl definitely has the good stuff. With an incredibly diverse collection that spans decades, it wasn’t hard for us to uncover a few hidden treasures to take back home. Souvenirs, anyone? 

Shop the look: Aeroflite Watch, Knox Tote

One of our favorite parts of sharing a new collection is watching the pieces come to life as fellow style-lovers place their unique spin on our newest designs. This season we’ve invited our friend and fashion blogger Jenny Bernheim (of MargoandMe.com) to do just that.

Known for her feminine yet modern look, Jenny’s main sources of inspiration comes from classic French films and street style seen across the globe; or as she puts it, “Bridget Bardot in Breathless meets Miroslava Duma on her way to Paris Fashion Week.”

Flight has long been a significant source of inspiration for us. From the wing tips of early bi-planes to the color scheme found in the cockpit of a WWII fighter, we’ve looked to aviation to create some of our most iconic and timeless designs much like the aircraft themselves.

So of course we’re celebrating Aviation Day, because no source of inspiration should go unappreciated—especially on its very own holiday. Say hello to one of our favorite flight-inspired pieces: our newly re-imagined Defender watch. Harkening back to the pioneer days of aviation, this redesign has a military-vintage feel with a stylish, modern twist.

Our newest Defender is fully customizable with 13 faces and 23 straps. Build your own here: http://bit.ly/1oKqXX2
