Born and raised in New York City, Minnie started her career as a photographer, but when she whipped up a simple white shirtdress for an editor pal, orders for similar styles began rolling in. Minnie says the piece, now her signature, "was inspired by the crisp and sleek presence of a man’s shirt. I wanted something for myself that was effortless and professional, but I needed it to be subtly sexy—and that came through with tailoring."
The West Coast-based Mortimer has collaborated with Boast on a striped, polo-neck style that’s equal parts polished and preppy. "Tennis was a big part of my life as a girl," she said, "and the aeshetics of Boast are very specific to that certain sporty community in my life."
Starting today, Minnie’s tennis dress is available for $140 in either midnight lilac or mint gray. Pick yours up at boastusa.com.
