Two New York

Let’s talk about summer style, shall we Hart Beat? I’ve been preparing for a mid-winter vacation and have recently found the most beautiful collection of beach wear yet. Get ready for our third installment of the baller Brooklyn lady series.

Two is a Brooklyn based collection of beautiful tunics, caftans and dresses, all made locally in New York. The effortless pieces are all made using handwoven textiles and saris from India. 

The collection embodies European and Indian influences evolving from the traditional sari. Two is great for the beach or even for surviving an urban heatwave — while still keeping it chic and comfy. 


The designer Monica Patel-Cohn is the daughter of an Indian father and an Italian mother and creates the saris based on modern accessibility. Two was founded in 2010 and hosts its studio in the vibrant Brooklyn neighborhood DUMBO. I am absolutely in love with all the pieces and want to wear them not just on vacation or in the summer, but just around my apartment.

Monica’s story is as beautiful as her designs. She is a natural model and poses for all shots of the saris (how gorgeous is she?), often with her small son. There is a great interview with Monica by the blog Little Augury that you can read here. In the interview, Monica discusses how she balances motherhood and work in the design industry as well as her love for biking in Brooklyn. Get it girl.
