50 T hose who know Bradley Agather Means know two things: She loves the hunt for a hard-to- find antique or emerging designer, and she's an expert at the art of gifting, having long helped family and friends come up with perfect offerings for all kinds of occasions. Such fashionable detective work — and her ability to discover stylish and often lesser-known products and brands — is what has made her a successful fashion editor and lifestyle blogger. (She writes Luella & June, one of the most widely read fashion blogs in Texas.) Now Means has partnered with Eden Delaune, who spent a large portion of her career in New York working in marketing and events for Ralph Lauren before spearheading special projects, styling, and events for Bronson van Wyck's experiential and event production firm. This fall, Means and Delaune launch their first business as partners: Bisette, a luxury service focused on corporate and personal gifting, as well as wedding-registry consultation. They call themselves the "quiet authority on creative gift solutions," and their clients (not to be named) are of a discerning caliber. The editorial sensibility of the two friends, paired with their exclusive contacts and access to the most exceptional products, is what sets Bisette apart. The duo zeroes in on the details, from the recipient's hobbies, favorite things, and preferences to keeping track of important dates for clients year-round. Their wedding-registry component is particularly novel: Brides and grooms fill out a style questionnaire and meet with Means and Delaune for a consultation. From there, Bisette creates a personalized registry of items, many of which aren't available through traditional registry platforms. As Means says, this is the place to go if you want to register for a set of La DoubleJ porcelain dinner plates that can't be found on any other registry. Bisette, Christina Geyer I t's a common dilemma: You're making a quick jaunt to Aspen or Dubai, and all you want to toss in your Goyard bag is a perfectly structured, perfectly packable blouse that, well, doesn't exist. The jet-setting trio behind Noble 31 had this exact problem, leading them to create a collection of tops that filled the void. "We looked in our closets and said, 'What's missing?'" says Madi Davis, a third of the brainpower behind Noble 31. Along with her sister, Mackenzie Moore, and her best friend, Staley Moore (who's also Mackenzie's sister-in-law), Davis went to work. They started with a line of covetable tops that easily translated from office to dinner to travel, using fabrics sourced from Italy and South America. Now in their sixth season, the brand is expanding, dipping a toe into packable trousers and chic jackets. The trio also has its eye on philanthropy: A percentage of Noble 31's profits benefit Purchased, a charity that assists survivors of sex trafficking. Noble, indeed.
