PLAGE ‘14/SUMMER IS…(sultry) with Ali Mejia

image

Sanity-saving downtime is on short supply in the fall, so get your relaxation while it’s hot. Summer is the time to let go of our schedules just enough to squeeze in the sunny adventures and sweet indulgences to sustain us through cloudier times. To inspire you to fuller summer fun (and an easier fall!), our SUMMER IS series explores the summer expressions of inspiring women.

Eberjey co-founder Ali Mejia started her lingerie brand with a wish to express and instill happiness, love and confidence in women. To do so, eberjey intimates attempt to express intimacy, truly. Represented in delicate, touch-me fabrics and a beau-bohemian outlook, each piece invigorates Mejia’s heartfelt dedication. She explains, “lingerie connects you to your soft, sensual feminine side — that powerful feminine energy which is the connector to our intuition.” Taken all together, surface details and eberjey’s particular spirit fuse into a relaxed and so-romantic range we want to wear all season. 

Below, Ali extends her perspective to offer a vibrant, sultry energy for island-bound escapes: eberjey + HATCH Plage in airy, effortless staples that best express summer’s romantic intimations.

HATCH IN/The Caftan Is Mother Mag’s Choice LBD!

image

For beach bump style, Mother Mag took note of our inspiration to create dresses that earned the favoritism of the LBD title, but went beyond the LBD’s literal restrictions. They selected our Caftan as the perfect example: Like all our Plage 2014 shapes, it forgoes “little” in a knee-skimming length and open body, and speaks instead to “comfort” and “classic.” Like the sound of that?

COLLECTIONS OF/Summer In Paris Style

image

Confession: HATCH has a major thing (a la “ooh la la”) for the city of light.

Oui oui, silhouettes like The Marais Dress have a strong hold on our spring/summer style identity, but explore further and you’ll see a set of pared-down but polished separates that help to recreate the mysteriously-chic Parisiènne wardrobe — sans passport. 

From the comfort of your stateside spread, ensemble yourself in our MaillotBateau Top and these Thierry Lasry feline sunnies. Enter Hemingway, a salad niçoise and the rest of our “Summer In Paris” selects, and you’re in for a full-body, French-forward fashion flight.
