For some time we’ve been playing with different fabrics to create a collection that will complement our current offerings of micro fiber layering tees and camis. We received a lot of feedback from customers looking for a looser, more relaxed-fit tee to wear over their Adea under-layers and we couldn’t agree more! We have you covered for luxurious base layers. Now, it’s time for us to bring you a beautiful array of relaxed-fit tees.
Unfinished prototype of two-toned crewneck tee
True to our "everyday luxury" mission, we want to offer only the highest quality, most durable fabric possible, creating timeless styles that work flawlessly with your existing wardrobe. So, we set out testing lightweight cottons, heavier weight micro fibers, wool blends, and silk blends. We sampled them all! Some of the fabrics we felt didn’t drape properly on the body to offer the desired relaxed fit. Other fabrics didn’t accommodate temperature changes well. With active customers from all over the world who love to travel, a fabric that functions in both hot and cold is a must!
Finally we found a lovely, Italian-made, stretch jersey knit made with Modal, a semi-synthetic fiber, and blended with polyamide and elastane for a breathable, silky soft stretch. Modal fabric drapes beautifully, maintains its shape over time and is machine washable.
Three styles will be available for delivery in early May: a short sleeve v neck tee, a long sleeve dolman, and a two-toned crew neck. Stay tuned for next week – we’ll post images of the prototypes.
If you would like to feel this gorgeous Modal fabric please email us here and we’ll be happy to send out swatches.

Americans love people with lots of spirit – individuals who are willing to push boundaries – in the best sense of the word. And, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, has done this with her flair for fashions that really work. This is why we love her.
After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.
There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
