Morgan Curtis, the mind behind luxury lingerie brand Morgan Lane, has introduced her newest venture— a sustainable gender-neutral line called Cozyland. The line of baby, kids and adult ready-to-wear is constructed from Peruvian organic cotton and is complete with recycled packaging materials. The collection places a distinct emphasis on both comfort and on ethical materials that will not harm the body or the environment.

"When I started down this journey with my in-house team at Morgan Lane, one of the most important things was finding a great resource," Lane said. "I traveled to Peru a few years ago and fell in love with the hand feel of their Pima cotton. We were lucky to be introduced to a specialist there who connected us with the top manufacturer of Organic Pima cotton and a wonderful factory to produce with."

Evan Mock seems to be doing it all. Whether it's skating through the streets of New York City or making his acting debut, the Hawaii-native has been booked and busy.

The skater-turned-model-turned Gossip Girl reboot star has teamed up with Rimowa for an experimental short film, No Where, directed by Luisa Opalesky and cinematographer Steven Rico. Creatively led by Mock, the short film follows the star throughout New York City as he navigates the city and a fleeting European love interest. While Mock explains that the film's voiceover had "nothing to do with what we were shooting," the collaboration highlights "the contrast of having two different things work together." We love a good juxtaposition.

Mock shows off Rimowa's cross-body messenger bag which is modeled after the brand's signature grooved aluminum design. In his signature pink buzz-cut and flowing pleated trousers, Mock is oh-so cool while exploring the local New York City haunts—the subway, the ferry, and the city's sprawling parks.
