Designers

A Detacher
NY, NY.

Designer Monika Kowalska creates intelligent clothes for every woman.

A DÉTACHER clothes are individual explorations into surface, form and function – a research into the formal posture of each garment.

Correll Correll
NY, NY.

Designers, sisters and twins Daphne and Vera designs are a true work of art.

Our creative vision is grounded in a holistic approach to fashion, which is embedded in every aspect of our design and production and woven in to every garment. From our use of locally sourced and recycled materials to the hand-based production methods we use in our Lower East Side workshop we make environmentally and socially sustainable materials and methods inherent to the production of each unique product.

Gray Matters
NY, NY.

Designer Silvia Avanzi was inspired by the artistic heritage of her native country Italy, along with the hectic lifestyle of her adoptive city New York. Her shoes are architectural, functional and unique.

Gray Matters is a collection of standout sculptural pieces: objects with a life of their own or enhancing the character of women like no other. 

Mara Hoffman Swim

Mara Hoffman founded her label in 2000 after graduating from Parsons School of Design in New York City. Fifteen years later, the brand committed itself to implementing more sustainable and responsible practices. In an effort to foster mindful consumption habits, the brand maintains an open conversation about its approach and encourages consumers to reevaluate the relationship society has with clothing. The company continues to focus on sustainable materials, processes, and production in order to improve and extend each garment’s life. President and Creative Director, Mara Hoffman, presents collections with a devotion to color, each inspired by and in celebration of women.

 

Pan and the Dream
NY, NY.

They are a wearable decorative fashion accessory. The design is a modern take on the vintage stocking. Stockings once had very little stretch in the fabric and often looked ill fitting. We emphasized the 'wrinkled' look and kept the beautiful stitched back seam.

Each sock is handmade in New York with attention to detail and using only the highest quality European fabrics.

SAMUJI

Helsinki, Finland.

Samuji is a creative studio and design house based in Helsinki, Finland.

Our work focuses on design and consulting, and is based on the values we hold dear in everyday life: a love of necessary things, simple functionality, and kindness. Our ambition is to produce timeless and sustainable design that serves a purpose yet carries a story.

The first Samuji womenswear collection was launched in spring 2011. Today we present four ready-to-wear collections annually, and our homeware line Samuji Koti was introduced in fall 2014. The word Koti means home in Finnish. 

All items are crafted out of quality materials from European and Japanese suppliers and produced in Europe by carefully selected manufacturers. The collections are sold in our own stores in Helsinki and New York and through selected stockists in Europe, Asia and America.
