A New Venture

On a sunny afternoon in early October, I decided to take a walk down to 76 Greene Street in Manhattan’s Soho district to take a look at an unusual apartment.

Was I looking to buy or rent? No, I was merely intrigued. When surfing the web I inadvertently saw “The Apartment by The Line” that said, “Open to the public on Saturdays, 11 am to 6 pm”. Why not I thought?

After a few missteps, I found the door to 76 Greene, entered and pushed the elevator button to the third floor. My jaw dropped as I stepped out into a light-filled, spacious loft with high ceilings and jaw-dropping furnishings and accessories.

WELCOME TO THE LINE This is a retail store that looks like an apartment (it even has a kitchen) except that every single thing in it can be purchased. Well, not quite. The old-fashioned, clawfoot tub on display is a spectacular decorative piece that’s not for sale. “And, we’re finding that New Yorkers love it,” said the young lady who was showing me around. “You wouldn’t believe how many questions we get about that tub!”

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORE First created as a luxury website by Vanessa Traina Snow and Morgan Wendelborn, The Line was launched to showcase their favorite finds for the home and beauty/fashion. I was intrigued because every item seemed to have a story behind it. Of course, I have to add that these high-end items are fairly pricey.

For example, a fantastic pair of aviator sunglasses that looked like no other aviators I’ve ever seen were $700 and a gorgeous chrome bike was $900. But the white sheepskin rug that I spotted was only $200! “Yes, it’s great, isn’t it,” my friendly guide said, “One of our customers bought it for her dog.” I was speechless.

When I returned home, the new October issue of Bon Appétit magazine had just arrived in the mail and guess what? Inside I came across a 10-page piece on “How to have a stand-up dinner party with no seating chart and no salad course” – all photographed on location at The Apartment by The Line.

I almost dropped the magazine.

But guess what really caught my eye? The clawfoot bathtub! Only now it was filled with bottles of Dom Pérignon!

From Bartender to Congresswoman

April 09, 2020

There are times when life throws you a curveball that’s so unbelievable you can barely believe it. This is what happened to a career politician by the name of Joseph Crowley in November 2018 when he was voted out of office. A 28-year-old female bartender named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who received 57% of the vote – suddenly became the youngest woman to serve in the United States Congress.

“Reporters Ultimately Don’t Stop”

This is first time I’ve focused intensely and in-depth on a male for Adea. However, I truly believe the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Ronan Farrow deserves this salute. In a nutshell, his article in The New Yorker was so sensational that it changed the course of history in America, and perhaps the world, by kicking off the incredible #MeToo movement.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
