UNIFORME is launching with a ready-to-wear collection in October 2015.
I aim to make simple, beautiful garments that are seasonless and easy to wear; impeccably tailored, luxurious clothing at a price within reach. I worked with patternmaker Nicolas Caito to develop seven interpretations of the classic white button up, accompanied by a simple tee shirt and three styles of bottoms. The pieces were inspired by the uniform dressing and consumption more typical to menswear, to buy less and buy better. That is, to make well-considered purchases based on the design, materials, construction and longevity of a garment.
The fabrics include luxury shirting from Alumo (Switzerland), fine suiting from Holland & Sherry (Great Britain) as well as a small-batch organic linen from Germany and a luminous bleached linen twill from Belgium. The garments are manufactured in New York City's garment district.
I sought to make finely sourced and produced garments more accessible. By launching the line direct-to-consumer and thereby eliminating the retail markup, I am able to offer luxury garments at a more modest price.
I invite you to browse the collection. The lookbook was shot by Bek Andersen in Usonia, a planned community by Frank Lloyd Wright in Pleasantville, New York. The lookbook features model Avery Tharp (NEXT).
The e-commerce will launch in October 2015. Please click here to sign up for the mailing list if you would like updates on the upcoming launch, events and promotions.
Lastly, I would love to hear from you! Please don't hesitate to contact me with feedback, questions, whatever!
