More women than ever before are forgoing thongs for ginormous underwear.
What I Did On My Summer Vacation is a new series where we ask designers how they're spending the dog days. Our first contributor is one of our favs, Ten Undies designer Daphne Javitch, who gave us some adorable snapshots of her travels. Daphne's summer plans:
We didn't make it to the Dazed party at Don Hill's last night (although we heard a bunch of people got arrested, so maybe that's a good thing), but we did manage to stop by the Creatures of Comfort New York store launch on Mulberry Street and Style.com's 10th anniversary bash, which was taking place just a couple of blocks away. Creatures of Comfort, a Los Angeles-based brick and mortar store, label, and online shopping destination for Rachel Comey and VPL-lovers across the country, is opening up shop in New York. Owner Jade Lai hosted a party in her expansive new space last night, and tons of our favorite designers were there: Tiffany Tuttle, Comey, Peter Jensen, Victoria Bartlett, Daphne Javitch, and plenty more. And of course Lai around, not only touting her new storefront, but also her INCREDIBLE in-house collection, which both Leah and I melted over. It's gently priced--in the $150-$350 range--and everything is a mix and match of silk cropped blouses, tie-waist dresses, and loose blazers. Most was made from a delicate crepe, with some cotton mixed in. And the color palette? Seafoam, terra cotta, white, periwinkle...everything we want for spring. After fawning over the clothes, we chatted with our Carroll Gardens contingency--Izzy from RackedNY, Adele from Epaulet, and Jen from Bird. South Brooklyn is the best. But soon it was time to head to Lafayette for Style.com's 10th anniversary party.
