Everything about our new collaboration with reworked vintage label As Ever feels, well, meant to be. The story behind it, involving a small group of women, a man with a sewing machine and a shared love of jumpsuits, is just too good not to tell.
We’re major fans of NYC dessert destination Milk Bar, so we joined forces with founder Christina Tosi on an exclusive collab of goodies—both to wear and to eat. Wanting to keep the festive feelings flowing, we asked Christina to share her top holiday tips—from what she wears on those marathon cookie-baking days, to the last-minute gift ideas that save her every time.
Few things rival the feeling of slipping on a pair of jeans that fit perfectly…but if we had to come up with one, it’d be the feeling of stumbling upon an amazing vintage piece. One of our favorite sources for such pieces is Where I Was From, an expertly sourced vintage collection from Brooklyn-based friends and co-founders, Stacy Daily and Claire Lampert. We had a meeting to talk vintage denim with Stacy and Claire early last year, which led to the realization that we had to collaborate on an entire line—which is shoppable today. Here’s how it came together and how these two creative, vintage savants turned a moonlighting side-hustle into a dream full-time gig.
An organic farm outside Albuquerque. Pink hues reminiscent of Mexican architect Barragán. A 40-year-old pair of white jeans. These are just a few of the things Stacy Daily and Claire Lampert, the Brooklyn-based team behind the cool and cult-followed vintage line Where I Was From, referenced when dreaming up designs for our latest collab, a throwback-inspired collection of denim, tees, jackets and scarves. We journeyed to New Mexico, the place where you could say—in a way—this collection is from, to see the inspiration firsthand.
