If you can get past their curmudgeon ways and long-winded stories, grannies are full of wisdom.
Case in point: Aimee Wolk and Sara Jordan, designer pals who channeled lessons from their grandmothers to launch Sara Claire & Esther, a sophisticated clothing line named after theirs truly.
This season’s collection brims with “when I was your age” sentiment, pairing ’40s-style pencil skirts and fitted dresses with exposed zippers and gold topstitching. Wasting and wanting not, the duo sources vintage fabrics, retooling men’s oxford shirts to create dainty looks like the gold-skirted Celebration dress.
Produced in small batches, pieces are unique (think different buttons and trims) and have an old-fashioned bespoke feeling.
Consider it a way to pay respect to your elders.
