To launch the This Teacher Deserves a Summer Break or just a break shirt but in fact I love this collaboration, Hay and Emhoff worked primarily over email, text message, and Zoom, meeting up just once for fittings. “There is a certain flexibility that we both have and a certain intuitive way of doing things that makes it easy,” says Hay, with Emhoff adding, “There’s not a real plan, it’s just intuition. It was really nice to work with someone else who works like that because it can be seen as an unorganized aspect, but it’s not. It just happens so stress-free.”
This Teacher Deserves a Summer Break or just a break shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
After working on the This Teacher Deserves a Summer Break or just a break shirt but in fact I love this project for a couple of months, the pair decided to keep the initial collaboration concise, offering just three pieces available for pre-order. A pastel crocheted vest will sell for $250, a ruffle-trimmed corset at $280, and a kaleidoscopic bag at $150. Everything is made-to-order locally in New York with an emphasis on reducing waste. In a previous era, the pair might have hosted knitting circles and hangouts to produce the collection, but for now, their band of knitters will be working safely from home or in studios.
