If we could hang out with any two designers this summer, it would most likely be Vena Cava's Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai. In an interview with Thread NY, the pair talked about how to stay cool in the summer and the things that are truly important during the year's hottest months (like summer Fridays). Lisa's treat is "Drinking a cold beer in the shower" and Sophie's anthem is the absolutely perfect "Cruise, Brews, Jaqcuzz." Plus, they say they head to places "outside Manhattan where we won't be able to do work while we're relaxing." [Thread NY]
