Sarasota-Based Fashion Influencer Blair Eadie Debuts New Accessory Collection





Sarasota-based fashion influencer Blair Eadie—who runs the poplar website Atlantic-Pacific and has 1.8 million followers on Instagram—has done it again.

Eadie’s collaboration with accessories designer Lele Sadoughi launched today at Nordstrom and on lelesadoughi.com. It’s her first collection with Sadoughi and her sixth with the retailer.

The 26-piece line includes headbands, earrings, sunglasses, a scarf and a sunhat in a rainbow of colors, fabrics and embellishments, with prices ranging from $95 to $225. Eadie, who’s known for her bold use of color, says she loves playing with unexpected color combinations.

“The red and lilac hues are my favorite at the moment,” she says.



For those who aren’t as bold with color as she is, there are neutral pieces, too, in on-trend materials like raffia and wood, with pearl details.

Wood and pearl earrings from the Atlantic-Pacific x Lele Sadoughi collection ($195).



“I love playing with unexpected color combinations, but since I’m always wearing so much color, we wanted to have a moment in the collection that was neutral but never boring,” Eadie says. “The raffia, pearl and wood pieces are incredibly versatile and can be worn with every shade in your closet.”

Sadoughi echoes those thoughts. A longtime accessories designer who launched J.Crew‘s influential jewelry line, she went on to become the jewelry design director at Tory Burch, where Eadie also worked, before leaving to launch her own brand.

“Blair and I share a love of color,” says Sadoughi, “and it was such a pleasure to create a collection that can be styled in so many ways.”

Eadie and her partner, Andrew, moved to Sarasota, where Eadie’s parents also live, several years ago. They bought a 1925 cottage west of the Trail near the Granada neighborhood that they lovingly renovated. The city features prominently on Eadie’s Instagram. Sarasota High School, downtown Sarasota and other local locations are often featured backdrops, in addition to her bright and airy home.

So how would Eadie style the pieces? In true Atlantic-Pacific fashion, she’d go maximalist.

“I believe that more is more, so I say wear the over-the-top headband with the statement earrings and the oversized sunglasses,” she says. “Go for it!”

Atlantic-Pacific x Lele Sadoughi is available online at nordstrom.com and lelesadoughi.com, and at select Nordstrom stores in New York, Chicago, Dallas and Coral Gables.
