As Seen in Marie Claire


Our crochet Antoinette shorts are modelled by the "goofy, warm, enthusiastic, unselfconscious" and incredibly gorgeous Lily Aldridge in the May issue of Marie Claire magazine! Equally as exciting is the fact that Aldridge was photographed by THE Helena Christensen! What a duo. We were over the moon to be included in this dreamy editorial.

We totally fell in love with the romantic, whimsical mood Helena created in her photography. Our handmade crochet shorts fit beautifully with the vintage, collage-like look of the photos. Channeling nostalgia and romance, it makes us yearn for something magical, enduring and heirloom-like.... just like this handmade lacy piece.  

Helena posted this beautiful shot she took of Lily Aldridge on her Instagram.

The Marie Claire article touches on Lily's next chapter - which includes a sustainable perfume line, Lily Aldridge Parfums, and a growing YouTube following. She talks a lot about keeping it real (which we love) and how she has steadily grown into herself and her confidence. There's nothing we love more than a woman being honest about her imperfections and embracing them. That's what Lily is all about. She even spends time discussing her career and offering advice to other women on her YouTube channel.

Upgrade your summer look with crochet shorts that add some romance and a vintage touch. We love the lacy shorts and sweater look, but you can also wear it with our matching Antoinette top. This piece is as great on it's own as it is layered under button-up shirts, denim jackets, or silk blouses.

Another lacy crochet favourite of ours is the Deauville short. We love the high-waisted, vintage vibe these give off. Pair it with the Deauville crop top for a perfect match. Pair pretty, white, vintage-inspired lacy little things with natural coloured accessories, like a must have boater, moroccan market basket and lace-up sandals. The soft white and natural tones make for such a chic combo.

Of course all of our shorts (well, everything on our site really) come with removable lining. Wearing them with liner in means endless possibilities for warm weather styling. Of course, without the liner, they make for one of the coolest bikini cover-ups. Pull them on over your bikini bottoms or monokini for a clean, matching set look and layer it tone on tone.
