From the mind of our very own in-house designer (Betsy designs both jewelry and clothing) comes the next Other Lives workshop concept - adding metal (in the form of chains, grommets, studs and safety pins) to your clothing.


We took inspiration from the ever ingenious Christopher Kane, who hasn't met a chain or rhinestone trim he didn't love, as well as Alexander Wang, Area, Alyx, JW Anderson, and Marine Serre. Check out our favorite looks below!

This is a time to be comfortable, and what's more comfortable than a tee? We all have torn, faded and forgotten pieces of this classic staple in the corners of our closet, and we want to give you a reason to wear it again. Our inaugural virtual workshop (on July 25th) will do just that. Here are pieces that inspired this workshop from some of our favorite designers. We are excited to see where you take this inspiration!
