Batsheva Hay called her fall offering “The Domestic Adventure,” channeling the intimacy of cooking and creating images in the style of a cookbook with friends Chef Tara Thomas, Nicky Hilton, Amy Fine Collins, Ego Nwodim, Maude Apatow, Adeline and Astrid Terrazas to add a personal touch and whimsy.
The look: Nostalgic, comfortable and whimsical pieces.
Quote of note: “Women are so often taught that their ‘home selves’ are unimportant, but I have always felt the most free and creative in my own living space,” she said.
Stand out pieces: Denim jeans with elastic waists and tie pockets; a smock dress in printed taffeta; house dress shapes; crochet details cardigans.
The takeaway: Hay continues to rethink the idea of what is feminine dress, producing pieces comfortable enough for home and also meant for the world outside.
