Sometimes timing can be a funny thing. Just a couple days after we shot Creatures of Comfort founder Jade Lai in her New York home, the mother of one (Laz, 1) behind the beloved retail shop and label announced that she was shuttering the 9-year-old brand. While her decision to move on from Creatures (whose fans include everyone from Solange to Amy Poehler) were surely complex, her recent journey into motherhood might have been one of the factors.
