Paola Hernández was born and raised in Mexico City but currently resides in Brooklyn with her husband and two children. It is there that she designs and produces handmade knitwear and her eponymous clothing collection. We love her for many reasons but in particular her strong emphasis on craftsmanship and reversing fast fashion. Oh, and her love of the full moon! Every full moon she releases a new collection item. Meet Paola!
Plump cheeks and a sip from the fountain of youth, hair that flutters long as if Haim’s fourth sister and nails so robust they demand pointed queries from strangers; all promises of a collagen supply kept topped up to the brim. A reserve that dims as we age.
I’ll admit I’m a skeptic, hedging my beautiful bets as I gather fine lines. The multitude of health benefits offered by many a collagen-lifting drink seems all too polished to be true. Is it a sprinkle of magic dust into my smoothie brightening my complexion or the fact that I’m enjoying a green smoothie at all in place of a handful of trail mix with a side of second-coffee anxiety?
