Get Cozy With Creatures Of Comfort's Jade Lai

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.
Her own in-house line, also named Creatures of Comfort, is a distillation of Lai's style DNA — cozy, witty, cosmopolitan, and "a bit off" (in the best of ways), and her aesthetic is one that's completely in tune with the modern woman. We caught up with the style star outside her shop on NYC's Mulberry Street to talk travel, influences, and her four favorite outfits she's stocking right now.
