Editor’s Letter


Dust off your sunglasses and cotton poplin — May is here, and with it the promise of consistently warm weather and a new season both energizing and restorative ahead.  We know that dressing for sunnier days can be challenging, and our latest arrivals, with their easy, optimistic silhouettes and fabrics, are intended to change that.

This time of year, it’s important that our wardrobe can literally and figuratively fit into a carry-on suitcase.  No matter where we’re going this summer — whether to somewhere breathtaking and far-flung, or down the street to a favorite neighborhood cafe — our clothes need to be light and stress-free, leaving space to be present for the celebrations and activities that make this time of year so special.  Breezy, effortless materials feel chic and stay flexible as you move from one thing to the next with grace and without anxiety.  

With its long days and illuminating sunlight, May is the start of a season of discovery.  We’re looking forward to sharing a considered collaboration later this month, as we partner with one of our favorite brands to give you even more to discover outside of the fashion realm.  As we ease into summer, we hope you’ll take our streamlined, effortless collection with you as you prepare for fun and adventure.
