The other day, I told you about our retreat Upstate, where my team and I found ourselves full of good intentions (we’re going to work like crazy people, but in the country!) and where we actually ended up spending most of our time swimming, cooking, and drinking rosé (sorry to all our collaborators for the delayed emails). But anyway, it’s good to take a break sometimes, and it was really cool — we took lots of photos, and we thought it would be great to share them with you.
It’s also because we realized during one of our long meetings that we talk to you all the time about others, all the people we admire and who inspire us, but we don’t say much about ourselves. [Ok, actually I talk about myself all the time, but I don’t show many photos. I’m starting to realize I’m photo-allergic, which makes our photographer Erik’s life a living hell. That’s often the case, by the way: photographers prefer to stay behind the camera.]
And it’s true – our team is pretty cool. I mean, they inspire me!
There’s Neada, the super sweet Australian who’s really healthy and cool and loves yoga; Brie, the super hip girl who knows absolutely everyone in New York; Emily, the chill business girl who’s got a mind faster than a Formula 1 car; Amanda, who’s super chic and adorable, and has made herself indispensable after only being here for three month; Heloise, who has amazing style, and oversees our shop and has turned it into a little paradise of inspiration; and finally, Erik, our beloved Erik, we’ll have to make you a video of him dancing so you can see the magic this guy carries in his hips — with all these talented people, you end up with a lot of truly inspiring moments.
So today, I wanted to share that with you, to make the spirit of this summer last a few minutes longer.
I promise, we’ll talk about what we want to wear for the coming year really soon. I’m starting to get tons of ideas. What about you?
