New Zealand-born designer Laura Myers believes in free association. The defining mantra of her one-year-old line Atea Oceanie is “everything with everything”—the philosophy that each of her designs can and should transition fluidly from one look to the next, combining with its counterparts in endless variations. This concept is made clearest in the eminently adaptable blazer vest from the fall 2014 collection. This polished piece transcends the individual looks in one’s wardrobe and spans a range of seasons and settings.
