Living in Manhattan, it's easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of everything that surrounds you. Whether it's the honking of the yellow taxies or the various sirens going off or the realization you have over-booked yourself and left little time to get from one spot to the next, it's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of New York City.
Early on after moving to NYC, it wasn't until I took a train only about an hour outside of the city that I began to realize the power of leaving the city. It's this unique feeling where you grow more fond of the hustle and bustle when you are able to leave and grow more intrigued by the idea of NYC in general when you remember there is a world outside of the city - one that offers a whole new set of opportunities.
Recently, I took a quick trip down south where I got to take a moment to sit on the beach. I wasn't there long, but I was there long enough that I got to soak in the tranquility of the sea. Its sounds were obviously different than NYC. Yet, that was the beauty - the sea sang to its own tune, and it offered a tranquility all of its own.
With the recent Cruise collections having hit the runway, it seems like a great way to close out this post. In fashion, we will always have the hustle and bustle of NYC and other urban cities like it. It is what helps the business of the fashion industry stay in motion. Yet, it's the moments of tranquility that allow the inspiration needed for the fashion industry to move forward to shine through.
If you haven't seen the latest Cruise collections, including those from Chanel and Dior, be sure to take a look at them. And, begin to wonder what sea adventure possibly inspired these collections.
P.S. With the days getting warmer, be sure to stock up on Adea's Camisoles - they are great to layer!

In the May 2020 issue of Smithsonian magazine I came across an intriguing article titled, “A Half-Century of Trips,” written by Ted Scheinman, (a writer and scholar based in Southern California). This features a subhead that reads, “Americans have steadily become more dedicated travelers, despite historic setbacks.”
This is the first thing I saw when perusing the 50th anniversary issue of the Smithsonian magazine for April 2020. This eye-opening 10-page article (with spectacular photos) is titled, “The Ship in the Ice” and concerns a topic we’ve all been hearing about for years, e.g., global warming.
The pandemic this year has affected all of us in many ways. Two things that stand out in my mind: people definitely need people (to paraphrase the song “People” sung by Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl). The phone, email, computer, TV and all the other digital creations we use DO NOT take the place of human interaction. We all need to see and talk to each other. That said we have also learned that we can work at home very efficiently and handle our normal workload if necessary. Never commute again? I don’t think that will happen, but perhaps we’ll find a happy medium – time will tell.
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.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
