Behind-the-Scenes: Inspiration Behind Our Fall Collection

August 09, 2019 | Filed in: Your Closet

Miyako, our head of design / the coolest person we know, has been cooking up something extra-special for fall. Scroll through to see what was on her mind while she designed our upcoming collection, and keep an eye on your inbox next week for the launch of Up, Up & Away!

Functional Silhouettes

“Travel-friendly outfit” doesn’t have to equal “workout clothes.” Case in point: Our refined, beautifully-draped shapes are designed to move with you, no matter your destination.

Packable Suiting

Road warriors, rejoice: We’ve designed suits that are literally made for travel. Says Miyako: “One of our innovative developments is packable suiting: beautifully-tailored suits that fold into a little drawstring bag. We’re hoping these pieces travel everywhere with her!”

Easy-Care Fabrics

The textiles in this collection were developed to make travel easier. Inspired by athleisurewear, we have soft, nylon tailoring that can be easily folded up and packed. Our bi-stretch cotton blend is comfortable and stretchy, and won’t lose its shape even after hours stuffed in a suitcase. Many pieces are made in our beautifully-textured soft wave fabric, which is machine-washable, wrinkle-resistant, and odor-repelling (thanks to Polygiene®).  

While you wait for our new collection, why not browse our travel-friendly styles in the meantime?
