OUR LATEST NEWS
For those in “the know” about all things Bellissimo the name Andrew Kent is a name one hears all the time in the store because of the simple fact that he is Terry’s (Bellissimo’s founder) older brother, uncle to her children and is a frequent visitor.
However, there is more to ol’ Uncle Andy then meets the eye. Yes, he is the cool uncle with the rock n roll past, with stories of a life so amazing they would most definitely be considered suspect if there wasn’t photographic evidence…
You see, Andrew Kent is music photographer who covered the music scene of the 1970’s (so there is plenty of that aforementioned evidence) and if that isn’t cool enough for you, maybe his experiences with David Bowie on a couple of six months stints will peak your interest.
Andrew has covered the live music scene extensively, from legendary concerts and opening nights at the Troubadour to Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles and The Bitter End in New York’s West Village and now his work can cover your walls. Pictured are a few of his images and there are more in the store! Please call if you have any questions!
The Deborah Rhodes round, braided linen placemat has been a staple of the elegantly dressed table – whether it is set for a luncheon, dinner, or a BBQ – since Ms. Rhodes sewed her first one in the nineties, but her love of a dapper table setting began when she was a little girl in Deep South. The women in her life instilled the sense of pride in American traditions like how to set a beautiful table.
As a young woman Deborah found herself in Los Angeles and in the world of fashion, modeling for print and television alike. This foray into fashion introduced her to the industry in its entirety and soon, Ms. Rhodes realized she could not only be wearing the fashions but could be contributing them as well!
It was in New York when the Deborah Rhodes brand took off. A 10,000 square foot workshop and studio in the heart of the garment district housed her ever-evolving line of hats, hair accessories, scarves, and handbags and made collaborating with names like Cynthia Rowley and Nicole Miller and accessorizing their collections with the perfect millinery topper.
It was those millinery techniques that allowed the brand to transform into tabletop, which touched on Deborah’s background and love of elegantly accessorized meal. A valued client at Henri Bendels requested a set of placemats from Ms. Rhodes and with the aid of the aforementioned techniques she conjured what is now her signature piece, the “Original Braided Round Placemat”. Obviously they took off and the rest is tabletop history!
See Terry’s current favorite Deborah Rhodes placemat, The Patchwork Daisy Square in Pink.

They say that style is reflection of your attitude and personality, no wonder Beata Henrichs Leib’s brand Hedgehouse exudes cool just like its creator!
Beata created Hedgehouse in 2011 because she was tired of her couches and pillows being ruined by little hands and the mess that often coincides with kids. After making a few portable cushions for her kids to sit and play on, she realized that she had a life style brand on her hands – one that was a chic and stylish as she was!
Growing up around the Von Furstenberg’s – Tatiana, Alex, and Diane – during her formative years left a lasting impression on Baeta, as a person and an artist. Other influences are her family, of course, fashion, and all the fantastic places in the world like Majorca, Greece, Harbor Island and other glamorous but relaxed-vibe places, that one can see echoed in the brands’ easy, casual, but high-end style.
The throwbeds have a very turn of the century, French feel and use only the highest quality fabrics and are filled with down and fiber. The covers are machine washable and only weigh 4 pounds, making them ready for any possible activities one can think of. They are pure summer simplicity.
Beata is our Woman Crush this Wednesday. She is a mom who needed something, created it, did it the best, and did it beautifully. Which is something that we here at Bellissimo admire greatly.
Be sure to shop our selection of Hedgehouse and experience it for yourself!
Pirie, Pirie, Pirie…
There is a mango called a Pirie, a Scottish clan, and a port in South Australia but there is only one Pirie Jones Grossman and we here in Ketchum/Sun Valley area are lucky enough to have this one in a million gal, with her one in a million name, centering our souls in one of the most beautiful valleys in the world.
And this valley has benefited from this thoughtful, kind, and compassionate woman, let me tell you! In 2005 she helped in the process of bringing the presence and message of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama to Idaho its children, 10, 000 of them in fact.
His message of peace and compassion resonated with all and Pirie carried that message forward, evident in her efforts in 2009 when she co-chaired the Special Olympics. Nine counties were represented and 3,000 Olympians competed right here in our valley. It was a wonderful event and this writer still has a hand knitted scarf as the ultimate keepsake.
– DEEPAK CHOPRA
This “racer, chaser mom” of Saba and Beuy hasn’t slowed down since. Her innate spirituality has been fundamental spreading wellness through the creation of wellness festivals nationwide. As Terry says, “Think about it, isn’t this what we need right now in our country? People who can create a safe haven for children and adults in their hearts? That teach them how to be strong and be their ultimate selves?”
Well, that is our Pirie. A goddess filled with love for her children Saba and Buey and her love of friendship and family and the possessor of a heart on a continual quest to help people and fill them with her regard and compassion. This is why she is our Woman Crush this Wednesday.
Pirie. Remember that name because not only is it one you can’t forget but it is one you will hear it over and over again.
