Meredith German

Creative Director, Meredith Wendell. New York

Earlier this week, The Coveteur endured perhaps their most eye-catching amount of Technicolor energy thanks to our voyeuristic lens that captured the pulse of Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan’s NYC abode. Today, we flip gears, and while we are still staying on the East Coast, Meredith German, Creative Director of in-your-face accessories line Meredith Wendell, has the ability to give A+D a run for their money (color-wise that is…). Founded in 2008, Meredith’s tenure in the fashion industry was just shy of a decade, starting by styling windows at Saks Fifth Avenue, then moving on to the design department at Marc by Marc Jacobs. In between shooting her Manhattan abode, like the lovely southern darling that she is, we bonded over tempeh at her vintage Pierre Cardin table, discussed the entity that is Margiela (look at those kick ass clogs), and growing up next to The Greenbrier Hotel (the color is a direct influence into her designs). Like us, German stops at nothing to get what she wants, and it’s evident with her global hunt for Prada pumps. “I obsessed over these shoes. I ordered them early in Italy, stalked headquarters in Milan and had them shipped to New York. Every time I wear them I end up dancing, which is unfortunate for my husband’s toes. They are heavy, I mean H-E-A-V-Y, but they are my favorite and he is fine with nine toes”. Been there, done that. But with every design change and influence – her family is at the pulse of her process, drawing on her experiences with her husband Ross to her grandmothers quilt collection. With Canada Day and the 4th of July kicking into high gear this weekend, we’re grabbing our Meredith Wendell totes and hitting the beach. See you on Tuesday kiddos!
