    Growing up in Hong Kong, earning her boutique wings in Los Angeles, and making her second home in New York, Jade Lai is one worldly woman, and it shows. In her beautiful, bicoastal shop — Creatures of Comfort — clothing, accessories, and home goods are all imbued with the sophistication and humor of the your most well-traveled friends — that is to say, go-with-anything printed trousers and well-fitting cozy knits rather than hemp cargos and bandannas.
