Maybe it’s the fluctuating weather, your propensity to shop emotionally, or that your DVR stopped recording Hoarders, but lately, opening your closet has become an extreme sport.
Unstuff and streamline starting today with Crawford, a new clothing line from Emily Crawford, senior art director at Time magazine.
Frustrated by a lack of effortless, throw-on options (and despite a lack of training), she fashioned a collection of easygoing shirts and shifts for spring and summer.
The crochet-trimmed ponchos, poet blouses, and utilitarian button-down shirtdresses in shades of tobacco, coal, and cream are the base for warm-weather dressing. Pack pieces for weekend getaways, cinch and layer them with printed blazers at work, and tie up the hems for dust-free noodling at music fests.
Garments are made in New York City from high-quality cotton, silk, and cupro sourced from Japan. Word to the wise: The flowy fabrics are just sheer enough that you shouldn’t freeball.
Because some looks should stay packed away.
Available at Bird, 220 Smith Street, at Butler Street, Cobble Hill (718-797-3774); 203 Grand Avenue, between Bedford and Driggs Avenues, Williamsburg (718-388-1655 or shopbird.com), $145-$285.
