Artist and Designer

Caroline is one of those women who arrives wearing no make-up, her hair tied up in a messy bun with just a pencil (how does this work—is this witchcraft?), has on the coolest outfit that probably took her no more than five seconds to think about that morning, and yet looks stunning. Her eponymous textiles company, Caroline Z Hurley, creates beautiful pieces inspired by her travels to dreamy destinations like Essaouira, Oaxaca, and Florence. We spent an afternoon with her at her Greenpoint shop and studio in her brand new Emmanuelles.
