Chilean fashion designer Maria Cornejo exudes laid-back summer style all year round, with her signature asymmetrical tunic dresses, twisted tops and bold, colorful prints.
That Cornejo's summer style consists of anything she can "just throw on" to plant seeds in her garden or hit up a favorite sun chair on The Highline is completely consistent with our perception of this cool downtown designer. And her totally enviable childhood pasttime of "picking figs and apricots" at her grandparent's orchard is a memory we'd like scientifically supplanted into our own subconscious, thanks very much.
