Faherty Friends

To celebrate the launch of our spring collection, we traveled to Malibu for a (windy) weekend with friends. Paul Tralka, our childhood friend, drove up his recently restored vintage van and met us at Zuma beach. Singer-songwriter Jacqueline Becker, who Alex and Kerry went to college with, joined us for a beach day reunion. These two aren’t just pretty people . . . they’re also creative badasses.

  WHAT CREATIVE PASSION PROJECTS ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
My passion is restoring cool old cars, mostly vans. I’ve had over 10 and they’ve taken me on countless adventures. I’ve traveled across the country three times, changed engines in National Parks, slept in Phish show parking lots, been in car shows – I even married a girl whose first car was a VW bus! Currently, I’m refurbishing the interior of the van pictured above in all Faherty blanket fabric, stay tuned for photos.
  WHAT DOES YOUR PERFECT DAY LOOK LIKE?
Scooter down to the beach and surf, acai bowl, take my dog to play, go to the beach with my two boys and watch them surf, get burritos, tinker on a cool project (like my Faherty blanket lined van), surf again, hammock for a little, enjoy an IPA and watch the sunset with my wife, then eat pizza.

  HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR MUSIC & CREATIVE INFLUENCES?
My music is inspired by my Latin roots and Southern California upbringing – it’s sort of a blend of modern pop with hints of jazz & wistful soul. I spent a period of my life traveling and performing in old world European cities like Florence, Rome & London. That experience was truly humbling and strongly influenced my desire to create music that conveys the bliss of timelessness. I’m always working to develop and polish my craft to become a better musician!
  WHAT ABOUT SPRING ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO?
Traveling! I'm also trying to convince my husband that we need to get a puppy this spring. It's happening.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PIECE FROM THE FAHERTY SPRING SHOOT?
The Newport Shirt, white and navy plaid. It's oh so soft. I'm actually wearing it now.
  CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF PAUL AND JACQULINE?
NEITHER CAN WE.
