You have so many T-shirts, we hear MoMA’s doing a retrospective. So the last thing you need is another one, right?
But Mika Organic will convince you that there’s room for one more. The elegant collection of hemp and organic cotton tees and dresses made in Williamsburg by Mika Machida is unlike anything currently hanging in your closet.
Using water-based inks, Machida screen-prints creatures (whale, flamingo), plants (dandelion), and habitats (forest), rendering her designs nearly animate: straps imitate antennae on the butterfly blouse ($220), and a top’s loose-hanging sleeve adopts the billowy motion of an elephant ear ($180).
The Japan-born designer is inspired by animal picture books, and a percentage from each sale of her ethical creations (surprise, they’re eco) is donated to the Wildlife Conservation Network to protect endangered species. Consider it a contribution to both your wardrobe and the world at large.
Available online at shopmikaorganic.com, $154-$275.
