Between the social unrest and the challenges of Covid19, I can feel the love and strength at the heart of this city. It is that energy source, that power, that must bring us to the polls to vote in November. From a place of hope and possibility, I encourage you all to vote for the society you want to see. In support of these efforts, I have made a statement tee to empower the message, although now sold out. 100% of the proceeds went to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.

VAUGHAN OLLIER
@VAUGHANELIZABETH

What makes me feel safe is being with my friends and family and loved ones and having all my basic essentials.
3 things you love.
I Love my dogs, I love New York, I love my friends and family.
What did you learn about yourself and humanity during quarantine?
I learned we’re a lot stronger than we thought, we can make virtual communities and still stay connected online. It’s important we could reach out to each other so easily this time - that’s a huge benefit.
What’s your favorite place in New York?
My fav place is Washington Square Park, I love to just walk around, look at architecture while still being surrounded by nature at the same time while still being in the city.

I don’t think we’re gonna take for granted touching and hugging friends and family.
What do you miss about the city?
I miss being able to walk around NY and be surrounded by people. There’s something I really loved about being anonymous with thousands of people walking around you. I really miss that. the vibrancy of the city, having everyone around you. I don’t miss bumping into people, but I miss the feeling of that presence around you.
What are your associations with camouflage?
Camouflage is about strengths, and that anonymity… and then what? War? fighting the invisible enemy, or the corona virus? (laughs)
What’s the one “never be the same again” thing for the world to realize after pandemia?
I don’t think we’re gonna take for granted touching and hugging friends and family. When you touch someone it’s gonna feel really intentional. You’re going to relish the moment that you can embrace someone and give them a sense of emotion through touch.

What are your associations with camouflage?
I always think of camouflage as a way to get into situations that I haven’t been invited to witness :)

The forest.
What did you learn about yourself and humanity during quarantine?
That I love people very much. I had been taking my freedom of movement on this planet for granted. I can survive on my own and I’d rather survive with others.

Name 3 things you Love.
Freedom, friends, family.

We all are made of the same stuff, and we all have an impact on each other’s existence.
What’s your favorite place in New York?
The Catskill mountains.
What do you miss most about the city, your own or those you travel to, that you can’t experience during isolation?
I miss my friends and family who are in the city who I can not see or touch. I miss walking down crowded streets overhearing people’s conversations. I miss wandering in and out of galleries in Chelsea. Stopping off in random places in the city to have a coffee and people watch. I miss the opportunities that were shared and available before the pandemic happened.
What’s the one “never be the same again” thing for the world to realize after pandemia?

Haribo gummies, fresh coconut water and my brother.

Chinatown Fair, an arcade in Chinatown.

I think the way that we see cleanliness will change whether it’s everyone caring a bit of hand sanitizer or just washing their hands more in general.
JULIA BANAS
@BANASJULIA

What are your associations with camouflage?
Camouflage to me is hiding but also being safe.

I feel safe when I talk with family, friends: when we share thoughts, it keeps me sane.

How much I need to create and how easy it actually is.
Name three things you love.
I love my family (friends and my boyfriend included), nature and food.

I miss the Tel Aviv sun and the people.
What’s the one “never be the same again” thing for the world to realize after pandemic?
The importance of making the time for all these things that fulfill you outside of work.
Not doing puzzles, didn’t even see one film on Netflix. I'm on the phone from the moment I open my eyes until midnight: talking, partnering, collaborating, thinking, reinventing how I do things, how I conduct my business, and my life. I found out I actually love working at home. I love the quietness that comes through the window of my New York City loft. I enjoy the silence. The beautiful sound of David’s guitar, sleeping well and eating well. I am good! I feel that at the end of each day I accomplish my goals, I am calm and grateful.

WEEK 2: SELF-ISOLATION
Where weekends now bleed into workdays and day bleeds into night, I stay home in cashmere. No more rushing out of the home each morning. Now I get up with sunlight, stretch, exercise with David before a long breakfast and start my work day. The cashmere pieces suit me perfectly for this. They bring luxury and sophistication to the comfortability of my new routine at home.

AT HOME IN CASHMERE
These images were shot at my home in Tribeca, a space I designed to balance comfort with sophistication. The artwork in the back of this image is by Moshe Kuperman, an Israeli artist I find endlessly inspiring.
I bought the artwork of Moshe Kupferman straight from his studio in Kibbutz Lohamei HaGeta’ot which he founded, lived, and worked as artist for many years. His studio remains just as he left it. Going through his drawers full of work from the 70’s was an unforgettable experience.

Like my parents, Kupferman was also a holocaust survivor. His works are abstract expressionist, gestural, raw. I feel his work has a similar, subtle feeling of coolness to my own design: the works describe something very honest and impulsive but keep it all together in a structured, composed, sophisticated way.
My mom and dad in Austria at the UN Refugee camp where they met, got married, and decided to immigrate to Israel. My parents always held a standard of sophistication and self-respect even in the most challenging of times. Even having survived the holocaust, a high quality garment was essential for my parents, my father in particular, who was committed to dressing to the level of self-worth and respect he had for himself. Here they are both in a white button-down.
I believe this is a rare opportunity to connect on a deeper level, to share with each other the ways we cope, reflect, renew, and move forward.
While at home in self-isolation I am trying to collect my utmost optimistic thoughts. There is no doubt that this virus is a monumental event in our lives. As it unfolds, and the impact is yet to be known, I believe that we shall come out of it stronger and wiser. Life will never be the same and I am looking forward to this new order where we will have redirected our priorities and make new choices: more time for ourselves, our family and friends. When we will focus less on work and more on the quality of our relationships.

The way we dress must evolve too. Spending more time at home around our families, our children, juggling work and home-life will require our clothes to be all the more versatile and comfortable. Unpretentious, timeless and effortless clothes are the key to this shifting lifestyle. We need less excess and more quality pieces in this new order. For now, keep your spirits up.

Sending love,
Nili
For the last three days that I’ve been self isolated, I’ve been on the phone nonstop, trying to put together a business strategy in order to preserve as many resources as I can in these unexpected, uncertain times. I’m being proactive and staying optimistic, hoping that with the right strategy and the right attitude, we can push through these challenges. Between meetings, I touch base with my immediate family who I am not with right now. Hoping in the next few days things will settle, and I’ll be able to connect with friends. I wish all of you a safe, healthy, and love-filled quarantine.

DAY 3: SELF-ISOLATION
Stores
Temporarily
Closed
To my dear friends, clients and followers. I hope you are all home, safe, and healthy. Like so many others, I will be closing my stores starting today, March 17th, in order to ensure the health and wellbeing of our team and clients. However you can still shop our website and contact us there. Moments like these remind me how grateful I am for my health, my loved ones, and my community. Wishing you all a calm and smooth adjustment in these challenging times.
THE BOOK OF CHILL
Model Lia Pavlova At Home, June 2020
Today I’m thinking of summer.

My summer is about
Nonchalance, simplicity, chill.

The outfits that make you forget you aren’t naked,
that is the highest form of perfection materialized
a universe in two squares of the same color,
as in my favorite painting by Malevych called “White on white”.

What I like about New York style is that you can wear something overly stylish (in a bad way) or something homey, like a pajama, and nobody cares how you look. I admire that.
What do you look for in your clothes that allows you wear them all day and feel good?
Simplicity.
What do you think about Nili's collections?
The good thing about Nilli Lotan is that you can find a nice range of options. Suits and dresses for the event, cozy clothes for home or if you want to spend a whole day walking on the street. The quality of clothes is very good.
Tell us about your sense of style. Where it comes from?
I can’t describe my style really, because I just like to wear cozy and comfortable clothes. I think most New Yorkers have this type of style too.
What are “New York” clothes for you?
What I like about New York style is that you can wear something overly stylish (in a bad way) or something homey, like a pajama, and nobody cares how you look. I admire that.
What are you favorite spots to spend time in New York?
I like the East Village, because I spent a lot of time there when I just arrived in New York. I also like to walk along water, either in Manhattan or Brooklyn, and enjoy the view.
Made out of a premium cotton twill, garment-dyed and stone washed to give it that soft, lived-in, and luxurious feel, the Cropped French Military pant comes in 4-6 colors and is available all year round.

THE NORMANDY
The Normandy blouse has been an NL essential since 2016, one of my favorite as well as best-selling pieces. It's romantic in a very minimalist way, without frills or ruffles, no excess. With a little bit of gathering, the shirt becomes gentle and feminine.

— NILI

I called it the Normandy because it reminds me of the North of France. I like to pair it with a more masculine, tomboy pant, bringing that cool and relaxed tension of attitudes.
Jane Birkin in France, 1977
Lightweight and easy to wear, the Normandy blouse is made of 100% sheer cotton voile. Available in solid black, white, and stripes.
CAMOUFLAGE
SOCIETY
Last month I launched Nili Lotan ♥️ New York, an initiative to support NYU Langone. 15% of the profits from our signature camouflage print go towards their frontline medical workers. Going forth with this initiative, I talk about cities, love, camouflage and New York with my favorite models and collaborators.

For me, camouflage has nothing to do with Israel or the army. I associate it with resistance, with protest, revolution. I think about Joan Baez who resisted war and wore camo as a statement. I wear camo for its subtle rock element, it carries the edge of a statement but its also casual and nonchalantly cool.

—NILI

SEAN LEVY
What do you miss most about NYC during isolation?
I love a place called 12 chairs, that’s where I go to when I want to feel at home. I miss the energy of the city, simple things — a ride in the subway, a walk around Central Park. I miss the rush between castings, shootings, being with the most talented people the world has to offer.

What makes you feel safe?
Being with people I love and care about.

What are your quarantine lessons?
Having a schedule, keeping balanced and focused, keep talking to my loved ones. It is crucial not only to share, but listen, express the love and support. I realized the power of family, and learnt to appreciate it even more.

Name 3 things you love.
My mornings, my family, and my friends.
TEHILA
What do you miss most about NYC during isolation?
I miss the social interactions that come with the city, wandering freely without knowing what’s around the next corner.

What makes you feel safe?
When I know my big family is healthy, while my husband and kids are next to me.

What are your quarantine lessons?
With all the differences, we learnt we are more connected than we sometimes would like to admit.

Name 3 things you love.
My kids, cooking and the sea.
MAY
What do you miss most about NYC during isolation?
I’m in love with the West Village, all the authentic tiny stores and coffee shops there. I miss going out there, meeting friends outside the house and dressing up of course.

What makes you feel safe?
Spending time with people I love, working out, eating healthy, taking care of my body and soul.

What are your quarantine lessons?
The importance of spending time with the loved ones. I also found out I’m a really good cooker, I do love reading books — and that nothing is obvious.

Name 3 things you love.
Netflix, Japanese food, and my mother, who’s also my best friend.
DORIT REVELIS
What do you miss most about NYC during isolation?
I love 5th avenue, but I don’t miss anything but the sea - anywhere in the world.

What makes you feel safe?
Being at home with my family.

What are your quarantine lessons?
I learned a lot about myself and my abilities when I’m alone and can’t meet people. I felt this is the time to maintain our planet, and this is the way.

Name 3 things you love.
Sports, family and my dog.
SOPHIA MECHENTER
What do you miss most about NYC during isolation?
Central Park — listening to musicians sitting and playing there, picnics, ball games and just staring at the view in stillness.

What makes you feel safe?
My family and my boyfriend.

What are your quarantine lessons?
I learnt it's difficult to be socially distant, I do miss my routine and friends. I had almost too much time to think about the future, I don’t do it on a daily basis normally.

Name 3 things you love.
Music, backgammon and Acai bowls, especially in New York.
Our Atelier team has been sewing caps and masks which are being donated to Masks4Medicine.
Our team dubbed it ‘Operation We Can Sew It’ and have been lovingly sewing from home.
Passover and Easter are moments where we come together as family, friends, and sometimes strangers. While this year will different, the holidays will still go on. Perhaps more than ever, there is still reason to come together and celebrate, even if virtually. This Passover we will all manifest our hope for health and togetherness. That is our obligation, and our privilege. All the more so in moments when the taste of freedom (from isolation) is not yet ours.

— NILI LOTAN
When you are all by yourself around the Seder table, there is still a reason to dress up and feel celebratory and chic — Sofia in the Rohan Moroccan embroidered jacket, featuring some of my own jewelry pieces.

I receive so many questions about the jewelry and accessories we show with my collection. Much of it is my own. Here’s a bit of my Moroccan jewelry collection, which I've had for so many years. We used these pieces for the Spring 20 editorial shoot.
I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays! Passover and Easter are coming up in the next couple weeks. Both Holidays are celebrated with our families around the table but this year is going to be different. While some are without their families, others are with them over Zoom. No matter the circumstance, we still want to feel festive and chic. So I wanted to share with you the pieces that always work for me, my go-to pieces to feel festive, the most chic, and classic.

The Sophia jacket is a heavy charmeuse-satin silk blazer that has taken me to every event. I’ve had for years. It gives me the feeling of elegance without being overly dressed. I've worn it to weddings, parties, holidays, dinners and every occasion in-between. I pair the Sophia with my maxi Azalea Skirt and the wide-leg Brixton Pant for an elevated look. For something more relaxed, I pair it with the Paris Silk Pant. It's never failed me. I have been offering it for years in every collection, always keeping it in stock in black and a new color every season. This Spring 20, the new color is a shade of khaki gold.

— NILI
Very few designers are still offering garments in pure silk, as it's become an expensive commodity in the fast few years. Lot of designers are offering Viscose blends instead. I have always insisted on my collections being made of natural fibers, with the highest standard of quality available. Silk is one of the most luxurious fabric offered, coming in different weights and weaves. I offer silk charmeuse in 30mm, the heaviest weight that drapes beautifully. It's the best investment that will bring you through every season, occasion, setting, and mood. Sewn in NYC, it's the highest standard of quality silk. The Sophia Jacket is one of these silk items, made out of 30mm heavy charmeuse (satin).

I wish all of you a safe, healthy, and love-filled quarantine.

DAY 3: SELF-ISOLATION
Stores
Temporarily
Closed
To my dear friends, clients and followers. I hope you are all home, safe, and healthy. Like so many others, I will be closing my stores starting today, March 17th, in order to ensure the health and wellbeing of our team and clients. However you can still shop our website and contact us there. Moments like these remind me how grateful I am for my health, my loved ones, and my community. Wishing you all a calm and smooth adjustment in these challenging times.
THE BOOK OF CHILL
Model Lia Pavlova At Home, June 2020
Today I’m thinking of summer.

My summer is about
Nonchalance, simplicity, chill.

The outfits that make you forget you aren’t naked,
that is the highest form of perfection materialized
a universe in two squares of the same color,
as in my favorite painting by Malevych called “White on white”.

What I like about New York style is that you can wear something overly stylish (in a bad way) or something homey, like a pajama, and nobody cares how you look. I admire that.
What do you look for in your clothes that allows you wear them all day and feel good?
Simplicity.
What do you think about Nili's collections?
The good thing about Nilli Lotan is that you can find a nice range of options. Suits and dresses for the event, cozy clothes for home or if you want to spend a whole day walking on the street. The quality of clothes is very good.
Tell us about your sense of style. Where it comes from?
I can’t describe my style really, because I just like to wear cozy and comfortable clothes. I think most New Yorkers have this type of style too.
What are “New York” clothes for you?
What I like about New York style is that you can wear something overly stylish (in a bad way) or something homey, like a pajama, and nobody cares how you look. I admire that.
What are you favorite spots to spend time in New York?
I like the East Village, because I spent a lot of time there when I just arrived in New York. I also like to walk along water, either in Manhattan or Brooklyn, and enjoy the view.
Made out of a premium cotton twill, garment-dyed and stone washed to give it that soft, lived-in, and luxurious feel, the Cropped French Military pant comes in 4-6 colors and is available all year round.

THE NORMANDY
The Normandy blouse has been an NL essential since 2016, one of my favorite as well as best-selling pieces. It's romantic in a very minimalist way, without frills or ruffles, no excess. With a little bit of gathering, the shirt becomes gentle and feminine.

— NILI

I called it the Normandy because it reminds me of the North of France. I like to pair it with a more masculine, tomboy pant, bringing that cool and relaxed tension of attitudes.
Jane Birkin in France, 1977
Lightweight and easy to wear, the Normandy blouse is made of 100% sheer cotton voile. Available in solid black, white, and stripes.
CAMOUFLAGE
SOCIETY
Last month I launched Nili Lotan ♥️ New York, an initiative to support NYU Langone. 15% of the profits from our signature camouflage print go towards their frontline medical workers. Going forth with this initiative, I talk about cities, love, camouflage and New York with my favorite models and collaborators.

For me, camouflage has nothing to do with Israel or the army. I associate it with resistance, with protest, revolution. I think about Joan Baez who resisted war and wore camo as a statement. I wear camo for its subtle rock element, it carries the edge of a statement but its also casual and nonchalantly cool.

SEAN LEVY
What do you miss most about NYC during isolation?
I love a place called 12 chairs, that’s where I go to when I want to feel at home. I miss the energy of the city, simple things — a ride in the subway, a walk around Central Park. I miss the rush between castings, shootings, being with the most talented people the world has to offer.

What makes you feel safe?
Being with people I love and care about.

What are your quarantine lessons?
Having a schedule, keeping balanced and focused, keep talking to my loved ones. It is crucial not only to share, but listen, express the love and support. I realized the power of family, and learnt to appreciate it even more.

Name 3 things you love.
My mornings, my family, and my friends.
TEHILA

When I know my big family is healthy, while my husband and kids are next to me.

With all the differences, we learnt we are more connected than we sometimes would like to admit.

Name 3 things you love.
My kids, cooking and the sea.
MAY
What do you miss most about NYC during isolation?
I’m in love with the West Village, all the authentic tiny stores and coffee shops there. I miss going out there, meeting friends outside the house and dressing up of course.

What makes you feel safe?
Spending time with people I love, working out, eating healthy, taking care of my body and soul.

What are your quarantine lessons?
The importance of spending time with the loved ones. I also found out I’m a really good cooker, I do love reading books — and that nothing is obvious.

Netflix, Japanese food, and my mother, who’s also my best friend.

I love 5th avenue, but I don’t miss anything but the sea - anywhere in the world.

What makes you feel safe?
Being at home with my family.

What are your quarantine lessons?
I learned a lot about myself and my abilities when I’m alone and can’t meet people. I felt this is the time to maintain our planet, and this is the way.

SOPHIA MECHENTER
What do you miss most about NYC during isolation?
Central Park — listening to musicians sitting and playing there, picnics, ball games and just staring at the view in stillness.

What makes you feel safe?
My family and my boyfriend.

What are your quarantine lessons?
I learnt it's difficult to be socially distant, I do miss my routine and friends. I had almost too much time to think about the future, I don’t do it on a daily basis normally.

Name 3 things you love.
Music, backgammon and Acai bowls, especially in New York.

Passover and Easter are moments where we come together as family, friends, and sometimes strangers. While this year will different, the holidays will still go on. Perhaps more than ever, there is still reason to come together and celebrate, even if virtually. This Passover we will all manifest our hope for health and togetherness. That is our obligation, and our privilege. All the more so in moments when the taste of freedom (from isolation) is not yet ours.

When you are all by yourself around the Seder table, there is still a reason to dress up and feel celebratory and chic — Sofia in the Rohan Moroccan embroidered jacket, featuring some of my own jewelry pieces.

I receive so many questions about the jewelry and accessories we show with my collection. Much of it is my own. Here’s a bit of my Moroccan jewelry collection, which I've had for so many years. We used these pieces for the Spring 20 editorial shoot.
I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays! Passover and Easter are coming up in the next couple weeks. Both Holidays are celebrated with our families around the table but this year is going to be different. While some are without their families, others are with them over Zoom. No matter the circumstance, we still want to feel festive and chic. So I wanted to share with you the pieces that always work for me, my go-to pieces to feel festive, the most chic, and classic.

The Sophia jacket is a heavy charmeuse-satin silk blazer that has taken me to every event. I’ve had for years. It gives me the feeling of elegance without being overly dressed. I've worn it to weddings, parties, holidays, dinners and every occasion in-between. I pair the Sophia with my maxi Azalea Skirt and the wide-leg Brixton Pant for an elevated look. For something more relaxed, I pair it with the Paris Silk Pant. It's never failed me. I have been offering it for years in every collection, always keeping it in stock in black and a new color every season. This Spring 20, the new color is a shade of khaki gold.

Very few designers are still offering garments in pure silk, as it's become an expensive commodity in the fast few years. Lot of designers are offering Viscose blends instead. I have always insisted on my collections being made of natural fibers, with the highest standard of quality available. Silk is one of the most luxurious fabric offered, coming in different weights and weaves. I offer silk charmeuse in 30mm, the heaviest weight that drapes beautifully. It's the best investment that will bring you through every season, occasion, setting, and mood. Sewn in NYC, it's the highest standard of quality silk. The Sophia Jacket is one of these silk items, made out of 30mm heavy charmeuse (satin).
