Stella McCartney x goop’s English Garden Party

Sometimes in life you get a girlfriend who becomes like a sister. Someone who really sees you. Who is as honest with you as they are loving. Who shares a similar world view, who has similar values. Who is a bit of a life raft when you live in a country that you lovingly adopt, but is not your own. Who also happens to be hilarious and a bit naughty and is constantly trying to get the balance of everything right, just like you are. Who is also one of your favorite designers ever, who has a ruthless eye and makes perfect, perfect things. Stella is that girl and so much more. I convinced her to do a collaboration, a very mini capsule collection of some beautiful, covetable things.

Here it is: Stella x goop.

Designing the Capsule Collection

On a crazy cold March day, we met Stella and her team at her London studio where we got started designing the collection…

Six months later…

To celebrate our first capsule collection with Stella McCartney, we threw an English Garden Party in the Hamptons. With lawn games and British snacks and drinks to pass around, we spent the afternoon celebrating with family and friends. Here’s a peek:

NAVIGATING JUDGMENT

“What I hear in this question is a common concern for all of us: We want to be able to respond to our relationships with skillfulness and clarity. But when we critically examine, say, a conflict we might be having with a friend or family member, we often find ourselves judging others based on "right" or "wrong."” read more
