We are fortunate to work with incredibly talented people from all over the country. From our manufacturing partners in Pennsylvania and Michigan to our talented bloggers in New York, we can honestly say that we work with the best of the best.
Over the years we've been lucky to partner with Patrick O'Connor, a brilliant and accomplished photographer, and the result is many of the images you see on our website. Pat has done work for New Balance, Bose, Hasbro, Puma.... to name a few. Incredibly funny, creative, and resourceful, Pat's unique talent lies in his innate ability to bridge a special connection between his subjects and the audience. He always nails it.

Pat's most recent project, Deconstructing Stigma: a series of photographs of people affected by mental illness, exemplifies what he does best in highlighting the beauty and strength of our individuality. As described on the McLean Hospital website, "Deconstructing Stigma: A Change in Thought Can Change a Life is more than a series of larger-than-life photographs of people who have been affected by mental illness. ...Each story is told through the eyes of the campaign's participants as they boldly tear down the misconceptions of mental illness. More than just statistics or nameless faces, the volunteers in this project are everyday people—just like you."
Here's how Pat described the project. "I was approached by Adriana Bobinchock, Director of Public Affairs and Communications at McLean Hospital (one of our favorite clients), with an interesting project. She wanted to come up with an awareness campaign to illustrate the fact that one in five Americans will experience mental health issues in his or her lifetime. She asked me if I’d be interested in working with her team to photograph the participants to illustrate their stories, and so Deconstructing Stigma began."

The photographs are now on display at Logan Airport in Boston in an installation spanning 235’ by 8’. The project and installation were recently covered by The Boston Globe, among other publications, and you can click here to read the story.

I have always been intrigued by the idea of flying around the world in a private jet to check off must-see spots on one’s bucket list. However, when I’ve received brochures about this type of travel the info is usually in the form of descriptive copy and photos of the tours. For example, the number of passengers per tour, how many days each tour takes, where the tour goes, what one will experience, and finally, the cost per person.
There was an enormous amount of planning, organizing and cash outlay for the royal tour of Prince Harry and his lovely wife. For example, there were 76 engagements and 39 official outfits for a wardrobe estimated at 118,000 in British Pound sterling (or $150,478 in US currency. (I did the conversion so if it’s wrong – which I doubt – you can blame me.)
In January, there was a lot of talk on the fashion scene when Karl Lagerfeld missed the Chanel Haute Couture show in Paris. A haute couture show is the show of the year. It is an opportunity for a brand to showcase the best they have to offer, not only in design and artistic abilities but in terms of craftsmanship with many details (if not all) completely done by hand.
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.
