(Continued) Fashionable Fields Including Pop-Ups This spring, The Halles once again becomes an official HQ for It-girls, beginning with the pop-up boutique of Texas-raised fashion designer Lela Rose, presenting her Round Top-appropriate Lela Rose Ranch collection (March 24 – 27; Lela Rose personal appearance March 26 and 27). Also notable are two returning bijoux ladies: Heather Benjamin nomadic jewelry and Covet Aspen modern jewelry. Then there's one of Texas' most celebrated new brands: Lizzy Chesnut Bentley's City Boots for the urbane cowgirl (founder Lizzy Chesnut Bentley will make a Halles personal appearance; deets TBA.) Rounding out the fashion-forward scene: Round Top-tested Nashville Makers, starring custom millinery by A. Botts Willis and her merry band; and Tonya Hawkes artistic handbags and home goods. Then Pata Lifestyle handbags, handmade in Argentina, give back to early breast cancer detection. Discover Mamadou's African artifacts and trade beads to make a bold global fashion statement. Let's Talk Art The art energy is humming, beginning with an epic installation adjoining the Country Sunshine Patio: Burning Man veteran artist/builder John Walker's 10-by-40-foot boat, Journey, channels a traditional Egyptian felucca then adds light projections and music. Also check out Bug In The Box taxidermy art, with its ode to the natural world via sustainably sourced specimens — perfect to start your cabinet of curiosities. Haley Bowen's lyrical female-empowered nude paintings return. Do more art gazing at photographer Fatima Donaldson's gallery, a space she shares with painters Vivian Mora, Karen Lindeman, and Denise Giordano (of the intuitive fumage/ smoke work). Don't leave without a cheeky canvas or commission from Bachman + Petrie's pop art emporium. Pegaso Gallery Design/Little Paris Antiques Country Sunshine's Neapolitan-style pizza Turkish Rug Co.
