Macy’s New Cozy Bedding Collaboration Will Help You Bring the Outdoors In and Refresh Ahead of Spring
Perhaps best known for its luxe bed linens and fluffy towels, Macy’s Hotel Collection brand just launched a collaboration with Allarice “Baya” Meehan, the founder of the Arizona-based eco-retreat Shash Diné. The collection is part of Macy’s Mission Every One endeavor, which aims to create a more equitable future for the planet and all its people by investing in talented, diverse designers and sustainability.
For the designs, Meehan drew from both the natural landscape surrounding Shash Diné, which is located in the beautiful rural northern Arizona desert outside Page, Arizona. An eight-room retreat, Meehan’s property is all about disconnecting from modern technology and appreciating the splendor of nature — even the showers are outdoors! That’s why it made for such a great reference point for the Hotel Collection collaboration’s palette in particular. “The colors are very natural and Southwest-inspired, from the plants to the rocks to the sky,” says Meehan of the line’s colorways, which range from soft, cloudy whites and earthy grays to bolder pops of teal and sunset oranges.
When it comes to the patterns and tone-on-tone textures of the pieces, Meehan looked to her Navajo heritage and its traditional motifs. “These geometric prints relate to specific clans and tribes,” she says of the embroidery-look shapes on items like the Vista Tile Comforter Set and the larger, lumbar style Mojave Geo Decorative Pillows, which (as shown above) make great one-and-done accents on a bed or sofa.
You’ll find towels, quilts, and throws alongside robes, wearable blankets, and ponchos in the range. According to Meehan, the wearable blankets, in particular, are perfect for nighttime stargazing; Shash Diné is known for its horizon to horizon views of the stars because it has little to no light pollution due to its remote location.
The collection will be available online, via Macy’s mobile app, and at select Macy’s nationwide starting today. Prices for the pieces start at $70 and top out at $500.
