Rain, rain, don’t go away! This week’s Sew & Tell guest will have you hoping for the next drizzly day: Yurika Nakazono and Marie Saeki are co-founders of TERRA NEW YORK, a the first fashion label dedicated exclusively to creating stylish, cutting-edge rain wear. The TERRA NEW YORK designs are sleek, sophisticated garments and accessories, built for endurance but created with incredible elegance. On today’s show, Yurika joins me to talk about the start of the label, the unique biodegradable plastics used for TERRA NEW YORK pieces, the practical and aesthetic considerations behind each design, some exciting new projects on the horizon for the line, and more.
Plus, I’ve put together a mix that reflects the rain, indie-rock-style; you’ll hear from legendary Tex-Mex-folk band Calexico, Swedish experimental electro-pop songstress Jenny Wilson, and Brit noise pop group Evans The Death. All that and more this hour, so put away that sad, drippy umbrella, pull up a chair, and learn how to stay stylishly dry like a pro with Sew & Tell on BTR!
