Behind The Scenes

Lynne Hiriak’s History of Dance (Costumes)

Yes, we want to pinch those cheeks, too. Lynne Hiriak spent her childhood wearing one of two things: her Catholic school uniform or her ballet ensemble. And her current return to preppy staples—which takes the form a knit-heavy line Cardigan—is an homage to those influences. But though her interest in ballet (she took lessons from age 5 to 14) was paramount in informing her design aesthetic and personal style, it was a bumpy, sequin-strewn road to get to where she is now. Here, a look at some of her early missteps (if, you know, you can call how a five-year-old dresses a misstep). —carly pifer “My first moment in white—pretending I am a ballet dancer. I have my fairy head wreath on.” “I didn’t know how ridiculous this costume was, but it was one of my favorites. I was always a minimalist from childhood!” “I would wear tulle any chance I could get! And, clearly, I loved knee socks?!” “I only danced so I could wear a tutu.” “My love affair with sequins obviously started at a young age.” “I really, really loved this outfit, but I don’t quite know why?” Come back tomorrow—and get on our email list!—to score Lynne’s edition, totally suited for a post-dance-class coffee run.

Cardigan’s Time-Tested Tour of Williamsburg

Lynne Hiriak is big on nostalgia—the sweaters she designed for Of a Kind were inspired by her old gym uniform. And the powerhouse behind the knitwear line Cardigan is equally sentimental about her nabe, Williamsburg, where she’s happily resided since 2001. “There used to be one coffee shop—Verb,” Lynne says. “I still get my coffee there.” These are favorite finds over the last decade. —carly pifer Ready to see these so-adorbs, button-accented sweaters? Well, get to it! Color options await, guys. “I eat brunch, lunch, and dinner at Walter Foods. I love the oysters (East Coast, please!), the bubbly, and the relaxed mood.”  “Still getting my morning kick-start at Verb Café—no longer the only coffee shop around but still my favorite.” “The ‘Burg waterfront is where I go with my iced coffee to meditate. Looking at Manhattan is a great way to start the day!” “I pass by the Radegast Hall & Biergarten every single day. It’s hard to pass up a grilled sausage and sauerkraut! We round out every photo shoot with a beer here, too.” “One of my favorite new cocktail joints in the ‘hood is the Ides Bar at the Wythe Hotel, which has the most beautiful lighting.” “Hunting for polka-dot glasses at the Brooklyn Flea—love it.”
