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:
P.S. Can't make it on the 17th? Swing by our studio on the First Tuesday in November and December, 4-7pm. Text (510) 788-0560 and we'll collect you from the Poplar Gallery gate.
It has been such a pleasure sharing new garments with you every week for the last several months. Let us know if you’ve enjoyed it too. We look forward to showing off the Message in a Bottle collection with many of you in person this Sunday. Our garments are enhanced by a tactile experience, making them practically irresistible. Be warned.
And now, without further ado, we present the final piece of the season: The Marine Cowl. This sophisticated top boasts a very full and perfectly draped cowl neck which neatly snaps in the back. The striped fabric is cut on the bias for comfort and ease of fit. When worn with a pair of black trousers or skirt, you achieve the look of endless legs. This is particularly true with our black Boardwalk Trousers. They were made to be together. This top is the embodiment of elegant dressing made comfortable and easy. We hope you can’t resist!
This is a piece we’re crowd sourcing. If we receive just 5 orders, we’ll make them for you. Please place orders by May 25th.
Don’t keep us a secret,
Bree and Kyra
Remember when fashion was full of rules, like no white after Labor Day, or sparkle is only for evening? Well, we’re all about breaking the rules this week. Despite shops full of pastels and floral prints, I'm in the mood to wear black right now. However, finding those special black pieces that really elevate an outfit can be a challenge.
Well, look no further: this week’s release, the 60’s top, is far from dull in an absolutely alluring French Cotton Lace. While it’s called a lace, it’s like none we had ever seen before. The perfect balance of sturdy and delicate, geometric and organic, this fabric is a stunner.
The comfortable cut looks perfect with a fitted trouser or skirt and doubles as a lightweight jacket. And if you are feeling in the mood for florals, the 60’s top would love to accompany that Bird of Paradise pencil skirt you just got. Don’t take our word for it. Come see for yourself on May 3rd at our Open Studio.
Stay tuned for next week’s final release of the season. We’ve saved something special for last.Happy Earth Day,
