Blending just the right selection of indie designers, found objects, and eclectic home goods, locally-based online boutique Covet + Lou continues to elicit covetous emotions as it enters its first spring season. Founder Tina Burgos, formerly of Stel's fame, has introduced a new crop of talent—and a handful of exclusives—to usher in the fairer upcoming months.
Patch NYC, a local artist duo and retailer itself, is among the additions, as well as a mixed print swimwear line called Giejo, slouchy tops from Margaux Lonnberg, and easy jumpsuits from Objects Without Meaning. Per Covet + Lou's format, each new designer is thoroughly introduced with a note on why Burgos is coveting its pieces. In regard to exclusives, Ace & Jig made a sleeveless plaid dress for summer frolicking, complete with neon trim, while Gabriela Artigas developed a set of three geometric stacking rings. On the home goods front, you'll find one-of-a-kind hand-dyed throws from Upstate and wood cutting boards from Allston-based Aberdeen Wood Shop.
