Welcome back, Jake Arnold, esteemed AD100 Interior Designer, founder of The Expert, and our collaboration partner x two! One collab is never enough! We are fortunate to partner with Jake again to bring another beautiful assortment to shoppers after the success of our first Jake Arnold for Parachute collection. This time we're offering a curated capsule of exclusive colors, cozy throws, printed covers and chic loungewear. We sat down with Jake to get all the details on what makes 2.0 so special!  

What makes this new collection unique to our previous work together? :I wanted to bring back some of the most-loved pieces from our first collection but in fresh new colorways. The last collection was rich and moody, so we introduced a softer palette with shades of sage, olive, and cream for the second iteration.

You’re known for your use of brown earthy tones. What is it about those hues that draws you to them? :Brown has always felt very grounding to me. It’s softer than black and warmer than gray, it’s the perfect rich shade that complements most other colors. 

Which piece from this collection will you be gifting friends this holiday season? :The Oversize Alpaca Boucle Throw! You can never have too many extra blankets around. The olive and beige tones feel refined and timeless, and the boucle weave adds the perfect amount of texture. I love to drape it on the sofa or off the side of a chair, or store it in a beautiful woven basket.

We are all obsessed with the Cozy Relaxed Coatigan. Tell us more about how that became a part of the collection?:I love to be cozy and comfortable, so the addition of a thick knit coatigan to the line felt natural. I really wanted the piece to be more versatile than a robe so that it can be worn indoors or out.

What is your favorite way to style the Cozy Relaxed Coatigan? :It’s such a versatile piece— I will wear it with lounge pants and our Shearling Wool Slides to relax at home—but also with jeans, a white tee, and loafers for a day out! 

If you could choose one piece from the collection to transform a room what would you suggest shoppers pick? :The Botanical Bedspread is a transformational piece. The pattern feels custom-designed, giving it that high-impact, elevated look in a serene, seasonless palette.
