Essentials Guide

Having navigated the world of fashion for most of my life, intimately acquainted with the daily struggles women encounter while choosing their outfits, I realized the crucial need to establish an essentials line. This initiative aims to infuse the act of getting dressed with more joy, practicality, and ease, making it a delightful experience.

The Essentials guide serves as a road map and building blocks of the perfect elegant wardrobe, looks that are travel and business trip friendly, that seamlessly pair with trendier fashion pieces, and mostly create an individual and practical wardrobe without ever sacrificing elegance and chicness.

Throughout my years of evolving style, certain timeless essentials have remained constant in my personal uniform; the perfect black pant in various styles - cigarette or pleated for a more relaxed look, classic and novelty white poplin shirts which are seasonless and always a must, the indispensable tuxedo pant and jacket to modernize your eveningwear choices, and versatile, lightweight cashmere knits that transcend seasons as layering staples that go with me everywhere.

This guide breaks down categories to assist in building your core wardrobe, highlighting a wardrobe philosophy that embodies timelessness and cost effectiveness.

With a membership, you gain access to a 20% discount on all essentials all year round, including our new core footwear collection, to help replenish easily the pieces you most fall in love with.
