Creative Spirits Series
The NY-based artist worked with our design team to translate her immersive paintings of American coastal landscapes into a limited-edition capsule of tops and accessories. We recently met up with Nicole (and her miniature parrot, Roy!) at her Chinatown studio to get a closer look at the art featured in the collab, and to learn more about the inspiration she draws from nature.
In honor of this collaboration, and in the spirit of celebrating our environment, we’re donating $50,000 to Lonely Whale, a nonprofit organization that spreads awareness and builds community around caring for the ocean.
The imagery in the collaborationcomes from my summers in Maine. Summer happens there in a day. Everything blooms and all the trees are suddenly green and full.
This pond has been a subject of mine for the past decade.Every night, I race to capture the feeling of that particular sunset, knowing that if I miss it, I’ll never see it again.

“I love wearing patterns and bright colors that probably shouldn’t go together.With clothes, like art, I’m always curious to see what I can get away with.”
It’s always been a hope of mine to make art for everyone, artthat lifts us up. These purple wildflowers, sweet William, grow on the side of the road without tending, and return year after year despite efforts to contain them or weed them out.
