We’re all about passionate women who are making it happen. Like Linda Bui—cosmetic-supply-chain guru slash ceramist slash master of plants—who is doing just that. We spent a day with her (and her pup, Quincy) in Williamsburg as she tried on some of our favorite summer dresses and talked creative inspiration, true-crime podcasts and otherworldly flowers, among other things.
It’s no secret—we’re beach people. So naturally we teamed up with the Surfrider Foundation this summer, wanting to learn more about the important work they do to protect and preserve our oceans. Fellow beach person and Surfrider team member Staley Prom chatted with us about showing our coastlines more love.
For us, summer is synonymous with beach. That’s why we’re so excited to partner with the Surfrider Foundation this season, supporting its mission to protect our shores through a limited-edition collab of seaside-ready essentials and a local beach cleanups in NYC and LA.
In Defense of Wearing Soft Clothes, 7 Days a Week an essay by Olivia Villanti
While growing up in my vaguely hippie hometown of Rhinebeck, New York, the dressed-up shoe of choice was a Dansko clog. Heels were reserved for proms, and even then only the most girly of girly girls would wear them. This may be why, at all stages of my life, I’ve been drawn to “soft clothes.”
Magazine spreads of ’90s supermodels, French New Wave movies you’ve watched a million times—vintage looks are always helpful for current wardrobe inspiration. Lately we’ve been looking to a less likely style icon: dads. In the ’80s. Yep, you read that right. Just hear us out.
As promised, we’re back with more travel-savvy advice and envy-inducing photos from a few of our friends who recently stayed at the new Hotel San Cristóbal in Todos Santos, Mexico. Discover the dos (and some don’ts) they swear by, scratch that let’s-get-out-of-here itch and find out how you can score a beach vacay of your own.
You can talk about music all you want, but at a certain point, you just want to hear it. On that note, literally, we asked our in-house music expert Lindsey to recommend something we should be listening to right now—in one sentence or less.
Once the weather starts warming up, it’s like there’s a little voice in our heads saying: “Get out there, explore.” That feeling makes us want to drag our carry-ons out of our closets, pack a couple of swimsuits, throw on a beachy hat and just go. Before booking our own trip, we caught up with some travel-savvy women who shared a few vacay tips (and their gorgeous snaps) after staying at the dreamy Hotel San Cristóbal in Todos Santos, Mexico.
Three days of continuous sunshine and good vibes, a couple too many orders of guac and ceviche, maybe a million cacti—our wish-we-never-left trip to Todos Santos, Mexico, where we shot our summer collection, by the numbers.
