Your Grandmother’s Favorite Beauty Brand Gets A Reboot

It’s not unusual for a company to make some changes at some point in its existence. An update to a catalogue, maybe a new logo or slogan, that sort of thing. Taking action to stay relevant is vital to the survival of any brand. However, it’s not a usual sight to see a company so set in its ways completely uproot itself and make a 180 degree turn into a brand new market. Not only is it bold, but risky, especially if what you had beforehand was something a sizable amount of people still loved. Yet this exact situation just took place, and it’s from a name you’ve likely not thought about for a while.

Crabtree & Evelyn, a name once synonymous with

Designer Charles Almonte’s favorite classic picks from Crate & Barrel

“Crate & Barrel is one of my first go-tos, especially if it’s a budget-friendly project,” Almonte said. “It’s not the cheapest, but it’s not the most expensive. It’s a good middle ground, and a lot of people feel comfortable with the price point and style.”

He also advises people to take stock of their existing pieces and look at editing out things that don’t work in their space. (Looking at you, papasan chair from college.)

“Sometimes you don’t need to overhaul things. Sometimes you just need to move things around and clean up a bit,” he said.

They held our community up with money, meals, masks, art, attention and love.

We saw that as parents rallied to collect graduation gifts for the class of 2020; as artists performed neighborhood pop-up concerts on traveling flatbed trucks; as restaurants served free meals to both first responders and families in need week after week. 

As the region battles the continuing spread of the novel coronavirus and grapples with the economic fallout of statewide
