Her side-side hustle of creating paint-splattered clothes began several years ago when she was working at J.Crew and wore some of her own paint-splattered clothes to the office one day, and the company’s president Jenna Lyons asked her to create some limited-edition pieces that mimicked the insouciance of painter’s work duds. “There’s something about paint splattered clothing,” says Tracy. “Everyone just loves the ease of it.” She’s noticed that if she is wearing a pair of paint-splattered sneakers or pants, people ask her, “Where’d you get those?” To create this drop, she used a watered-down house paint and chose her colors based on what type of clothing she was painting. “White looks good on denim. Sweatshirts are more about conversations between different colors, and I really like painting on chinos because they remind me of a canvas,” she says.
