Bring a little romance and nobility into your life with our medallion necklaces. Inspired by a box of wax-sealed letters found at an estate sale, the designers have turned the authentic 19th century seals of cracked wax into jewelry that fuses archaic symbolism with modern design.

Hibiscus Cargo Skirt
Our photographer captures all sides of our Hibiscus Cargo Skirt while shooting in Tlacochahuaya, Mexico. Not your average garden variety cargo skirt, ours is made from pima cotton sateen in a vibrant hibiscus print.
Looking to fashionably navigate a season of soirees? Our cosmopolitan French hats are handcrafted with a swirl of frothy net and Chantilly lace. So accent your style with a little ooh-la-la and raise the sophistication quotient at your next champagne event.
La Vie en Rose Hat
In our new Summer collection, we feature innovative knits, exciting new prints, fresh fiber choices and fashion-forward designs. One of the designs I find particularly creative is our Element Tunic. Fine-gauge jersey knit of Peruvian pima cotton, this chic design is not only fun and slimming but also hides a cutting-edge sleeve treatment that makes this seemingly classic shape an unorthodox choice.
As you can see in the illustration above, on the wearers right side the design features a raglan sleeve construction with wide sleeve opening. On the left side is an angled seam with dolman sleeve characteristics and a narrow notched opening. The sleeves appear to be the same length when worn but this asymmetric silhouette captures the contemporary new-wave of pattern-making found in European and Asian boutiques without taking it too far outside the average persons comfort zone. The effect is so subtle that most do not notice it but you will certainly feel progressive energy when you wear it.
P.S. Also available in Petite!
We are really excited about our first ever Summer catalog and the addition of a 4th collection to our design house. As a preview to the season please enjoy a small clip from our Oaxaca, Mexico photo shoot. We hired a local Mariachi band for some of the shots and were delighted when they began to perform as the photographer took pictures of the model. A little grainy but certainly fun to watch.
