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.

I have always had a fondness for the storied and elegant Plaza Hotel in New York City. Back in the day I interviewed a delightful fashion editor in the Plaza’s famous Palm Court. I found the whole experience fascinating so when I came across an article about the history of the Plaza I started reading at once.
For 58 years, 89% of the astronauts have been men. And for 192 years, there were no women justices on the Supreme Court until Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981. In light of where we are today – these numbers are shocking.
In the five years that I’ve been writing these fashion blogs I’ve come to the conclusion that the creative heads of these worldwide companies have daunting, or almost impossible, daily jobs. The headline you see above came from Alessandro Michele who, in January 2015, became the creative director of Gucci, the company that was founded in Florence, Italy in 1921 and currently has 500 stores worldwide.
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.
