Meet The Only Hearts Pair Making Sexy Comfortable
We rarely equate getting cozy with feeling sexy. So call Only Hearts‘ lingerie a classic case of opposite attraction, its pieces serving up the smolder with a side of softness. As its founders, mother and daughter team Helena and Kaya Stuart, tell it, their goal is to make women feel feminine and confident in all aspects of their lives. Because comfortable is sexy. Here the mother-daughter pair talk favorite dates and what they love most about their work:
What’s the STORY of the best date you’ve ever been on?
Helena: A weekend in the south of France, off season, the light is magical. Walking along the sea in the evening just talking, buying food at cours saleya market and cooking it at home, drinking great wines from Provence.
What do you love about what you do/make?
Helena: Much of my time is spent thinking about what little piece of lingerie will make me look and feel most appealing. what’s the most flattering line? Color? Fabric? it’s a lot of fun!
Where is your favorite date spot in NYC?
Kaya: Sunset picnics along the Hudson River park in summer, Café Katja in winter
Who is your secret maker crush?
Helena: Arcona, a small independent beauty studio that’s near my shop in Santa Monica. I’ve tried everything and it’s the only brand that doesn’t make me break out.
Kaya: Chamber Street Wines: I love natural wines! Chambers street has the most amazingly curated collection of interesting and delicious natural wines and a wonderfully helpful staff.
