Just In — Acne Studios PS18 + New Team La Garçonne Tees + Get to Know: Lorod.
PLUS: Jen Steele: Musings on life and creativity with the Brooklyn-based storyteller.
For everyday wear, these basic tees were tailored for an easy fit and made from Japanese cotton that's soft but still has enough heft. 100% Japanese Cotton. Made in Japan.
This season, we welcome Lorod to the La Garçonne family. Founded last Fall by Parsons graduates Lauren Rodriguez and Michael Freels, the pre-season collections (just two per year) are made exclusively in New York, focusing on timeless, season-less, wearable classics. Here’s what else you need to know about our new favorite local label…
Jen Steele has a fierce strength and passionate determination that belie her delicate physicality. Such tenacity along with curiosity and openness are the kind of qualities a girl from Wisconsin needs to make it in New York. What makes Steele’s version of “making it” most compelling is that she freely pursues independent creative projects that encompass all forms of narrative-making, from photography to writing and, most recently, film. Steele’s just-completed debut short Follow the Roses (a teaser to a feature), channels her tender, perceptive, and truth-telling point of view, while romancing an astute aesthetic sensibility. We chat to Steele about wearing multiple creative hats, the beauty of podcasts, and why getting dressed is emotional.
