WEAR THIS TO THE BEACH

While we obviously have a shoe obsession around here, we also have a serious soft spot in our hearts for clothes that are breezy to wear, speak of style as well as substance, and transition easily from the street to the shore. Our eyes and ears perked up this spring when we spotted gorgeous pieces from Kopal, a line produced in India of entirely custom-made fabrics, the handiwork of artisans working out of workshops where they’ve honed their craft. The feather-weight tunics are the chicest choice for covering up bikinis on the A train back from the Rockaways, and the adorable dresses will probably make their way out to the Surf Lodge this summer, as they are ideal for cocktailing at sunset. Not too precious, not too simple, this line strikes the balance of easy wearability and pure bohemian bliss.
