in Upstate New York
In celebration of the beginning of luxe cozy season, we gathered with some friends in upstate New York to experience the magic of Fall. Nothing compares to the changing of the seasons in the Catskills.
Our multi-hyphenate guests Jelena Weir, Sasha Mei, Emma, Andrea Pion Pierre, Polina Meshkova, Hélène Heath and Courtney Halverson personally styled their favorite Brochu Walker pieces over the course of the 2-day trip, illustrating the effortlessness and versatility of our most-loved pieces.
We arrived at The Arnold House just in time for a beautiful, candlelit dinner in a barn-side, lush greenhouse that glowed under the night sky. We laughed and exchanged stories over a delicious farm-to-table meal accompanied with a rich, full-bodied wine…some of our favorite things.
Morning is a special time in the region. The sun peeks over the tree-lined horizon creating a stunning gradient in the early sky. The silence is restorative. The crisp air is awakening. The light is peaceful, comforting and energizing. Our day began with a trip to Buck Brook Alpacas, where we were inspired by the process and love that goes into harvesting the fibers and raw materials that eventually turn into yarn, like those in our luxe knitwear…plus, alpacas are really, really cute.

Next, we picnicked in a garden-inspired lodge and got prepared for our next activity, horseback riding. Our Fall/Holiday collection features heritage-rich details like marled yarn sweaters, our Bridle Belt, modern riding pants and cowboy-inspired boots and the ranch and exquisite animals provided the perfect backdrop, while setting the stage for more unforgettable moments.

Our farewell dinner at Kenoza Hall was set in a warm, lakeside cottage with impeccable design details that inspired us. While we were sad to see the trip end, we toasted to new friends and the memories we created. We can’t wait to go back.
