My friends at Everlane launched a series of events last week to celebrate their sparkly new office and showroom. I had the pleasure of leaving cold rainy NY behind to check it out in person. I've been so close to the brand since its beginning days that I am surely biased, but I really love everything they do and the effort they put into their social media channels. If you haven't seen their Snapchat, you're missing out on some good entertainment. And if you're familiar with the brand, you know that transparency is at the forefront of everything they do. Their office and showroom design reflect that openness and transparency. I'm not sure I would get any work done in that space, though, because I would be photographing everything possible in that late afternoon light.
Of course it's not just about aesthetics and good window light – there's got to be good substance behind all of that. I know from first hand experience that these folks work hard and have great ideas. I'm always excited and looking forward to seeing what they do next.
Below is a little look at the office and showroom, with many gratuitous photos of the window light.
Having seen some of the newest pieces in person, I'm particularly into the relaxed poplin shirt in the blue/white stripe. I'm also looking forward to replacing my current modern point shoe, which I've completely worn down already – they're getting a restock of all the sizes that were previously sold out. And if you're like me and have trouble with the length of most shirts (petite problems), the square silk shirt is a great cropped length.
