It all started with an unlikely barter between friends. „Would he do it for jewelry?” Solange Azagury Partridge asked Tracy Lowy of having Lowy’s husband, Laurence Dunmore, direct a short film to showcase her new creations. „Yeah, ask him” was Lowy’s mischievous reply. Thus the lovely short film The Letter, starring Thandie Newton and Jason Isaacs, was born.

It tells the story of a beautiful woman (Newton) who decides to leave her husband for her lover,moncler jacket but not before packing up her jewelry (pieces from Solange’s new Stoned collection). Still, when she reaches to her lover, she decides she doesn’t need him either only the jewels, namely a diamond engagement ring she left behind on the nightside table.

„I wanted her to say, ‚I’m not staying with my husband; he’s stifling me. Then she runs to her lover, and thinks, But I don’t think I’m bothered about him, either, but I am bothered by that ring,” explains Azagury Partridge, laughing. „It’s tongue in cheek, really.” With a sound track by Rob Dougan, an original script by Azagury Partridge’s husband, Murray Partridge, and styling by Charlotte Pilcher, the project was a family affair; hence the creation of Friends and Family Productions as the force behind the shoot. Says Azagury Partridge of putting together the talent, „It was great being an old fashioned producer and just letting them do their thing.”

The film debuts by invitation only on Monday at the Solange Azagury Partridge store on Madison Avenue, with a special screening and party planned in London later this month, but you’ll have to wait until the holidays for the jewels (like this gorgeous ring above). They don’t arrive stateside until December. Sumu (who is known as just Zainab) had grown out of the appointment only business she was running from her Hollywood apartment. Yet the success of that salon style environment curated objects from Africa next to labels like Comme des Garons, Martin Margiela, and Balmain, all of which could be viewed while sipping a cup of Mariages Frres tea prompted her to retain the homey, private atmosphere when she opened Zainab at 7021 Melrose in Hollywood. Be warned: The storefront is barely visible as you drive by, but it’s definitely worth hitting the brakes for. The inside (designed by J. Jean Claude Samuel and Seyie Potsure) contains a selection of mostly young up and comers like Jeremy Laing, Ohne Titel, Richard Nicoll, Jasmin Shokrian, and jeweler Alyssa Norton. On one wall there is a shoe alcove devoted to the shoe god Azzedine Alaa, while an ancient African wooden sculpture nearby sets the tone for what Zainab calls the store’s „primitive modern” aesthetic, which she has perfected after her many years of globe trotting.

Zainab came to Los Angeles by way of New York, Paris, London, and her native Sierra Leone. She left a job at Comme de Garons in New York to be a buyer at H. Lorenzo in Beverly Hills not to mention to be with her then boyfriend. Now Zainab has established herself as a fully fledged Angeleno, embracing the city, which reminds her more and more of her home: For her, it’s all to do with the landscape, with the Santa Monica Mountains’ meeting the Pacific recalling the geography of where she came from. When you visit the store, more than likely she’ll be the one to welcome you in before rattling off tales of her childhood, travels, and latest obsessions (Natalia Brilli’s cool black leather accessories, Tom Scott’s knits). The only downside? Having to find a parking spot on the corner near La Brea and Melrose. But that’s just a small price to pay.
