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.

When Instagram announced they would be running a test where they would "hide the total number of likes and video views for some people" in some countries, the feedback was mixed. I spoke with some of my friends, from around the globe, who lauded the decision. Their reasoning was varied but with many pointing to how many teens and even young children are feeling the pressure to post and will only feel validated when they get so many likes.
Last week we introduced you to the newly opened Hudson Yards and provided lots of basic, down-to-earth information. CLICK HERE for a fantastic video of the grand opening ceremony (sound on/full screen). This week we’re going to focus on the shops and restaurants you will find as well as “The Vessel” (New York’s answer to the Eiffel Tower) and “The Shed” (a performance and exhibition space that expands and contracts).
No matter where you are in the world today, it seems one cannot escape politics. As I do not want this post to be an oxymoron, my goal is to keep it on topic - politics in fashion?. It was not that long ago, I cancelled one of my previously beloved fashion magazines (and as you read this, it wasn't American Vogue). Without thinking twice, I cited the reason being that I was a subscriber to this magazine because it used to be about fashion, now it was about fashion and politics.
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.
