Here’s the scoop! “We started this brand because we loved stripes but thought there was an opportunity to interpret them in a more modern, feminine way. (Much of what is out there in stripes is very androgynous.) We actually used the same Japanese knits and Italian wovens that we have had our own mens shirts made from for years and used them in softer, feminine silhouettes.” LOVE!
