Nate Berkus


Sadly, the West Village shop was recently destroyed by a fire, but we still support this incredible brand with whom our politics have always been aligned, by shopping online. It still feels like part of the neighborhood in my mind.

Notes from Lingua Franca:
It all started with a stitch – literally. No grand plan, no big idea. One weekend I was just looking to burn off some anxiety and turned to embroidery (a craft my grandma Rita taught me when I was a young girl in Nebraska). I picked up an old cashmere sweater, a needle and thread and LF was born – a subversive underground movement to counteract the forces of mass production, mindless consumerism, and the patriarchy. Just kidding (kind of).
