Mercury Vest

Mercury is the only metallic element that is liquid at room temperature.  There are also unique properties to our Mercury Vest.  It has the styling of a traditional men’s vest in a wool flannel chalk stripe, yet sports an ultra feminine fit.  The buttons sit in beautiful asymmetrical handsewn bound buttonholes.  The black cotton back has 5% stretch to move with you comfortably.  The front pockets will carry your small treasures and a handsome pocket square.

Vests add panache to any outfit.  This one is divine!

Woolenly yours,
Bree and Kyra

Black Magic Top


Here at Vermeulen, we love seeking out beautiful natural fibers.  We recently found a wool we couldn’t resist and wanted to share a few of its qualities.  Wool insulates the body, keeping the wearer warm in cool weather and cool in warm weather.  It naturally wicks moisture, it moves with the body and is extremely durable and long lasting.  It is both antimicrobial and fire resistant.  In a sense, it is a magical fabric.

Using the soft American milled wool knit we discovered, we’ve created the Black Magic Top.  Mixed with a Japanese ribbed wool blend neckband and ¾ length sleeves, the top is as versatile as the fabric.  It will be your go-to all winter, well into spring, and beyond.  Sewn in California as always.

Available in sizes XS - XL, you can order yours today here:

Locally yours,

Tria Prima Dress - Blue Waves

To the 16th century alchemists, salt, sulphur and mercury represented body, emotion and spirit.  They defined the human body.  Our Tria Prima dress also defines and flatters a woman’s body.

Feel luxurious in the soft Tencel body and silk top panel.  The contrast neck band adds interest while the subtle shoulder slits give a glimpse of skin.  Throw on your gold heels and you’re off to the party!

 Transmutation Coat

Mural by Amanda Giacomini


Here in Northern California we’re feeling the crisp autumn air envelop us.  The leaves are falling, as has a bit of much needed rain.  It is a beautiful time of transition.

This is also a time when we seek out a perfectly warm winter coat.  Something with moxie, which makes us smile as we head out on a frosty morning, yet versatile enough to wear every day.

To this end, we bring you the Transmutation Coat.  It features a sophisticated mix of thick black, grey and cream wools, a collar that can be worn up or down, and double breasted natural horn buttons.

We’re offering this coat as a special very limited edition.  Only 5 will be made. Available in sizes XS-XL.

Order yours here:

Cozily Yours,

Bree and Kyra,
Vermeulen & Co.

P.S.  Want to stop by and see the clothes in person? Swing by our studio on the First Tuesday in December, 4-7pm.  Text (510) 788-0560 and we'll collect you from the Poplar Gallery gate.
