Cozy, With a Dash of Neon

The fashion designer Rachel Antonoff’s search for a warm, snug harbor began early. As a little girl growing up in Bergenfield, N.J., she tried climbing into her mother’s underwear drawer. “It collapsed on me, obviously,” recalled Ms. Antonoff, 33, who was bloodied but unbowed. “I loved books like ‘The Borrowers,’ stories that had to do with nooks and secret places. And when I saw my mother’s drawer, I thought, ‘I’ll bet that’s a cozy place to live.’ ” Cozy is the aesthetic that is guiding Ms. Antonoff as she sets up housekeeping in... [Lire la suite]
