Nine a.m. is an early call time for most fashionettes, but Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock appeared unfazed yesterday morning as they unveiled their new project, Vena Cava for Aqua, at Bloomingdale's Soho. Old pros at collabs (remember those graphic tribal tees and khakis they dreamed up for Gap?), the designers presented a full collection for the Bloomingdale's brand, focusing on muted tones of army green, mauve, and grey twisted into jersey dresses and the brand's signature hand-drawn prints (click gallery for a few of Chic's favorite looks). "My grandma used to take me to Bloomingdale's when I was little," shared Buhai, munching on Balthazar pastries while contemplating her travel plans. "In June, I took a 10-day road trip across Spain and the south of France, finishing in Italy," interjected Mayock."I think Barcelona was my favorite city, I'd never been to Spain. Everyone tells you about all the Gaudi architecture, and I was like, How amazing can it be? But then you go and see it in person, and it really just blows you away."
