5 Questions for the tuleste market Designers

The designers behind tuleste market, siblings Satu and Celeste Greenberg, grew up in rural northern California, combing through thrift stores and coming up with creative ways to put together stylish wardrobes. Inspired by their reworked vintage finds and driven to create their own unique pieces, the two created tuleste market. Combining a thrift store mentality with high-fashion gloss, tuleste market offers one-of-a-kind statement pieces for all style sensibilities.

We posed five questions to the designers about their line and their inspiration.

What is the philosophy behind your line?
We wanted to have a line with pieces that were both affordable and attainable, that was fresh and contemporary, but with a cool, classic vibe

What inspires your designs?
Our current collection is inspired by women of all ages and lifestyles, from city to country; new designer pieces and vintage thrift store finds; and most of all, it is inspired by our love of making something old look new again. Another source of inspiration is women in films that stand up with time from Michelangelo Antonioni and Jean Luc Goddard. The fashions mirroring our family during our childhood from The Monterey Pop Festival, and of course, our friends and diversity of living in New York.

Does your current collection have a theme? What is the inspiration behind it?
We don’t really have a theme. We wanted to have timeless pieces that all women would want to wear.

What is your best accessorizing advice?
Too much is never too much!!

Do you follow Coco Chanel’s rule: “take one piece off before you leave the house”?
