At Home: Alexa de la Cruz



In our latest interview series, we explore themes of new growth in the stillness of the present moment.

For our first installment, we connected with jewelry designer Alexa de la Cruz from her home in Mexico City to discuss the sensory notes that are defining her current experience.
Shaina Mote — At Home: Alexa de la Cruz

Currently wearing. 

I am currently wearing soft cotton t-shirts. I love natural fabrics and the comfort they bring to the touch. It’s easy for me to breastfeed in shirts or blouses, as I can easily pull them up. That’s one of the reasons I immediately loved the SM Marin Tank. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Making intentional decisions. 

Surrendering to everything that I have no control over. To feel everything but to observe my thoughts at the same time. Doing so always makes me feel calm and in control of my state of awareness.

Scent and touch. 

I adore buying flowers for our home. Reminding me that spring is happening outside of our door. They bring such peace, just ~being~ with them and observing how alive but still they are. The clear cycles of birth, death and rebirth they offer visually, how beauty is always present in the different states is just magnificent to me. Nature is always my number one for comfort and bringing me back to myself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How I’ve changed. 

Being grateful for everything. Knowing that what is presented in my life is only here to teach and for that I am always grateful. It’s not a “change” in my life but the feeling of gratitude is more present at the moment.

A Moment of Pause

In this unique and challenging time we are taking a pause - a moment to reflect on the people who make the existence of our company possible. Our staff, our suppliers, cutters and sewers, the stores that we work with, and you, the customer: we pause to share gratitude for all of the individuals that make our work both feasible and worthwhile.

We understand that this moment has challenged all of us to consider what is important to us, which is why the support you have shown us at this time has been especially valued. It is important to us that you feel cared for in return, and we therefore welcome any dialogue you’d like to share - questions about a specific part of our supply or production chain, why a particular design decision was made, or even thoughts about what you’d like to see from the brands you shop right now. At this moment of reflection, we think it’s imperative to keep the conversation going.

Our intention is to continue to create clothing that feels meaningful - items that are comfortable, practical and timeless, constructed for longevity and with care in mind towards each of the individuals that contributed to produce each piece.

We thank you for allowing us to continue in this mission.

With gratitude,
Shaina
