Sherie Muijs garnered widespread attention and a national award from her debut collection of crisp white shirts entitled ‘White Wash’. The designer believes that the clothes we wear affect our confidence, our ambition, our sense of worth and the freedom to be. And, that we surround ourselves with the tools and resources we need to be effective, including the way we dress, which when done in a way that feels genuine allows us not only to be effective but also to be ourselves. Sherie’s sole focus is on shirts, selecting materials of the finest nature and designed with painstaking attention into the production of her garments.
BASUS is a French urban contemporary brand, largely inspired by the city life, nature and architecture. They infuse these elements into each collection by adding unexpected details that surprise, so the basics are not that basic. The brand has dedicated itself to maintaining a respectful and responsible approach to the environment. Their clothing is designed in Paris and the collections are primarily made in France and Portugal, and all the materials are high-quality textiles from Europe and Japan. They even produced their very own material––cork leather–– that is both natural and recyclable, which has quickly become the symbol of the BASUS eco-conscience.
Karu is a line of artisan-made textiles and clothing founded on the connection between thoughtful design and living well. Balancing style with simplicity, craftsmanship with ease, each versatile piece is designed to be timeless and convey the softness of feeling at home. Traditional and sustainable processes unite with contemporary aesthetics across home goods, sleepwear and seasonless apparel collections. Whether in the block prints, embroidery, dyeing, or stitching, each Karu product has a handprint, and is therefore completely unique.
