We're thrilled to unveil our exclusive collaboration with Eberjey, the cult favorite intimates label
(and longtime favorite of Rebecca)—and the results, we must say, are magical. In honor of the debut, we're celebrating
the art of indulging, unwinding and finding moments of magic in the everyday, so we asked Eberjey co-founder Ali
Mejia to muse about that and more (and Rebecca shares some gems too).
"There is a magical quality to
wearing beautiful lingerie that our girl

What inspired the collaboration?
"I'VE BEEN A HUGE FAN OF REBECCA FOR A VERY LONG TIME. I'VE ALWAYS LOVED HER AESTHETIC AND THIS WAS A CHANCE FOR US TO WORK IN SILK, WHICH WE'VE NEVER DONE. WE COMBINED THAT WITH OUR SIGNATURE STRETCH LACE AND HER AMAZING PRINTS, FORMING A NICE MARRIAGE OF OUR TWO WORLDS. I'M SO HAPPY WITH THE WAY IT CAME OUT – THE FEEL, THE SILKS, THE SHINE AND THE LIGHTNESS – IT JUST WORKS."
What are your favorite pieces?
"THE LITTLE CAMISOLE, THE TAP PANTS, THE UNDERWEAR – WHICH WERE ALL MADE FROM SCRATCH BECAUSE THIS WAS OUR FIRST TIME WORKING WITH WOVEN FABRICS. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE PAJAMAS! THEY'RE SO EASY AND FEEL GLAMOROUS. THE CAMI IS ALSO REALLY PRETTY AND MAKES A NICE LAYERING PIECE UNDERNEATH A BLAZER OR COZY SWEATER. YOU CAN EVEN TOSS EITHER TOP OVER JEANS."
"Eberjey means joy,
so that's our motto— to find the joy
in everything, every day."
- Ali Mejia, Eberjey Co-founder + Creative Director
How important is fit and how these pieces feel on?
"THERE'S AN INTIMACY IN THE PRODUCTS YOU WEAR UNDERNEATH – FOR ME, IT ALL STARTS THERE. THE FABRIC, TOUCH, FIT AND HOW IT FEELS AGAINST YOUR SKIN CREATE AN EMOTIONAL CONNECTION. THE WHOLE POINT OF AN UNDERGARMENT IS TO MAKE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE, SUPPORTED AND unconstrained. MY ULTIMATE QUALITY TEST OF FABRICS IS HOW 'YUMMY' IT FEELS. WHEN I DID MY WASH-AND-WEAR TEST OF THIS COLLECTION I SAID, 'OH MY GOD, IT'S SO GOOD.'"
"A glass of wine.
That always makes me happy!
A really good book. Being in my garden
in Shelter Island. It's so important
to indulge sometimes."
- Rebecca shares about finding moments of calm and joy in her day
How do you find those moments of peace
and calm in your routine?
"EBERJEY MEANS JOY, WHICH WE ADOPTED AS OUR MOTTO. FINDING THE JOY IN EVERYTHING, EVERY DAY ALLOWS US TO BE OUR BEST SELVES AND LIVE MORE MEANINGFUL LIVES. EVERYTHING STARTS FROM WITHIN – YOU BECOME AND ATTRACT WHAT YOU TRULY FEEL AND EXUDE. HAVING SOMETHING THAT FEELS GOOD ON YOUR BODY LEADS TO FEELING COMFORTABLE DAY-TO-NIGHT, NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO AND WHO YOU ARE WITH. OUR LIVES ARE SO FAST PACED, SO IT'S IMPORTANT TO STAY GROUNDED AND REMIND YOURSELF TO SLOW DOWN AND FIND THE JOY IN EVERY MOMENT."
