Maureen Doherty, a good egg

Maureen Doherty Egg

“I’m not trying to make anything new. There’s so much pressure in fashion to every six months have this newness. When I opened Egg, I wanted it to be like a chair: well that’s OK for 10 years. It’s not for six months; it’s 10 years. I like the fact that it can be an heirloom.”
Egg founder, Maureen Doherty, Hole & Corner

Sad to hear of the sudden passing of Maureen Doherty, whose quiet brand Egg was a highlight of any Dover Street Market visit, or the occasional stroll to her store in Kinnerton Street. This interview from Hole & Corner is a delight.
