Portrait of a Lady

Dear Friends,

Throughout the ages women have been immortalized on canvas.  We’re captivated by William Clarke Wontner’s portrait of an Elegant Lady, drawn in by John Singer Sargent's Madame X, and mesmerized by Marie-Gabrielle Capet’s Self Portrait. Paintings map hundreds of years of fashion and trends.  Through all the changes, one style continues to flatter: the Portrait Collar.  And true to the name, this complimentary and feminine design is a work of art.

This week marks the arrival of the Landscape Top.  Our modern revision of the portrait collar is sure to stand the test of time.  Its deep indigo color, layered design and painterly collar belong in a museum.  If you’re in the SF Bay Area, we recommend you wear it to the Legion of Honor for the High Style exhibit, through July 19th.  This selection from the Brooklyn Collection is a delight!

Where to find us?  We are always available for personal Vermeulen styling by appointment.  Please join us at our Studio Open House at American Steel Studios on May 3rd from 1-5pm. (1960 Mandela Parkway, Oakland, CA 94607)

And visit us at American Steel for the Art Murmur this Friday, April 3rd from 6-9pm.

Have a color filled week,
Bree and Kyra
