Two weeks ago, our glamorous co-writer Krista had a sit-down with the two equally glamorous The Lake & Stars designers Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman in The Big Apple. The result: our most extensive and in-depth interview to date!
Enjoy the excerpt, and make sure to read the full interview!
I love the name â€œThe Lake and Stars.â€ What is the history of and how did you decide on the name?
We came across the name while looking through an old book about lost nicknames mainly having to do with sexuality, etc. We immediately knew that was the one. It was so obscure. No one had heard of it, and when you first hear it, it sounds really lovely and ethereal. But the meaning behind it (â€œthe works in bedâ€, or â€œgreat in bed,â€ as in, â€œShe gave me the lake and stars.â€) is actually quite dirty. Perfect for lingerie! (Nikki)
Yes, we love the duality. Itâ€™s much like our personalities and contrast in sensibilities, definitely different on the surface. But as you get to know us, we reveal a diverse mix of qualities (much like our namesake!). (Maayan)
