"Sweet Pea" and shopping off Shenkin Street

Off Shenkin Street, (one of the hip, Bauhaus areas in central Tel Aviv), I found the baby doll smocked top photographed in the “Sweet Pea” chapter of my book, Denim Revolution. In the carefree style of the young fashion scene in the neighborhood, designer Keren Gross, opened a roof top boutique one summer weekend. When I arrived at the top of the stairs, I was greeted by her sisters, music and a pitcher of iced tea and fresh fruit cheerfully spread out on a table draped with colorful vintage fabrics. She defined the boutique by an awning, rug and a breezy cloth tent for the “changing room”. It was a perfectly delightful way to shop and enjoy friends and a sunny afternoon.
