This week we’re releasing not one, but two garments, which just happen to go great together.
To adorn the upper half we offer the Horizon Top. The fabric is a red and black abstract pattern in 100% silk with black Tencel sides and a cotton stripe neck detail. It is so utterly soft and elegant you’ll want to sleep in it.
On the bottom we have the High Tide Trousers. They’re high waisted and highly covetable. A tux stripe down the sides adds flair to these cropped britches. Available in a black textured crepe which likes to travel and a show stopping inky stripe.
You can order these items today online. Or, come try them on at our Open House on May 3rd. 1-5pm at 1960 Mandela Parkway, Oakland, CA 94607.Wishing you well,
Today we launch the second piece in our Message in a Bottle Collection: The Boardwalk Trousers!
These pants deliver the classic silhouette you desire, and are designed to be that perfect straight leg trouser you wear day after day into evening. Far from mundane, they channel a Katherine Hepburn ease and elegance. They sit comfortably at your true waist, smoothly hug the hips, and then gently drape down the leg.
What goes into creating such amazing trousers, you ask? Long before the Boardwalk Trousers make it to your closet, they’re put through rigorous design and development at Vermeulen HQ. First we draft a pattern and make a sample. That pattern is then revised and tweaked until we have it just right. Next, we test the pattern in other sizes. We’ve developed a grading system unique to Vermeulen & Co. to achieve that miraculous fit not only in a size 4, but throughout all of our sizes.
Once we have the technical side worked out, it’s time to take them on the road. This is the fun part. We wear them out and about and see how well they stand up in the real world. They’ve enjoyed wine tasting in beautiful Sonoma County, they’ve been to the office and several parties, they’ve ventured into the verdant jungles. See them below lounging next to a lagoon at Los Pozas in Xilitla, Mexico. These babies have performed so well and we’re just thrilled to share them with you.
Order online today here http://www.vermeulenandco.com/products/boardwalk-trousers in sizes 2-16. They are available in both a luscious and thick black textured poly/viscose/spandex blend and in a breezy hemp/organic cotton stripe which is fully lined.
