Meet the Designer: Children of Our Town

From Mexico City to New York City, Children of Our Town brings a unique spirit to their designs.

Ever heard the saying ‘It takes a village to raise a child’? Children of Our Town, based in New York and Mexico, makes their clothes with that kind of sentiment. Launched in 2014, COOT isn’t your typical clothing line, rather, it’s a community that’s knee-deep in Mexican culture and tradition. Designing with a mix of generational beliefs and clean lines, the brand is putting out some really special pieces. We caught up with the brand’s Creative Director, José Alredo Silva, to find out more.

Style and matzo ball soup with Jacks Wife Freda

Maya Jankelowitz is one of those women in New York City. Amazing style, bustling business, adorable family and an Instagram feed to die for. She also happens to be part of the husband and wife team that feeds the city’s well-heeled at Jack’s Wife Freda. She met Dean Jankelowitz when they were both working at Balthazar (a classic Soho restaurant that also feeds the city’s most fashionable) over a decade ago. They started with a family, and now they have two more babies: a location on Carmine Street and a location on Lafayette. Named after Dean’s grandparents, the restaurant is always packed and the food is all about throwback comfort with a twist. We caught up with Maya to talk about being a restauranteur, her personal style and matzo-ball soup.
