"Classy & versatile" - Christine

Minimalist and midi length, our Tavi Dress is a new essential for transitional weather dressing. Her sleek sheath silhouette skims the figure, while a vertical seam runs from the left shoulder down to the hemline, where it splits into an off-center slit. Handcrafted from soft, high-stretch and sustainable European jersey, Tavi's mock neck is designed to ensure it's both chic and comfortable, and her long sleeves are finished with thumbholes for that elevated Marcella edge.

Available in Black.

Styled with the Mott Top Handle Purse
and the Jackson Boots.

"Warm & high-fashion." - Christine

Stand out in our cozily chic Maren Coat. Maren features a diagonal two-way zipper and an asymmetrical bottom hem, coupled with a high wrap neckline that will keep you warm while always stylish. Handcrafted from Italian virgin wool, tunic length and lined for added warmth. Maren's suited for cooler temps but generously cut for layering to extend wear through cold weather.

Available in Black, Camel, Blush Pink, Medium Grey and Cream.

"Social change is an approach that’s been used for centuries to dismantle unfair laws, policies, and other systems of oppression. Our only responsibility is to keep moving the work forward. And I believe stories are among our most accessible teaching tools to do that."

“Bold, warm & cozy." - Christine

Make your style A LOT cozier with our extra-long Bronx Scarf. Bronx is both knit from ultra-soft French Merino Wool mix to warm your soul and fashioned extra long to make a statement. Wrap this Merino wool scarf around and around for volume, or wear her draped over your shoulders to lend your look texture and drama. This soft wool scarf also doubles perfectly as an airplane blanket.

Available in Burnt Yellow, Olive, Black, Light Beige and medium Grey.

Styled with the Tavi Dress and the Jackson Boots.

"Cozy & chunky." - Christine

Come sweater weather, you'll want to live in our Pia Turtleneck. With a beautifully boxy shape and a textured waffle knit in French merino wool blend yarn, she features a snuggly high neck, dropped shoulders and extra long sleeves. Cozy, comfortable, and perfect for layering, Pia's relaxed fit is this season's sartorial fail-safe—but if you really want to go big (literally), you can always size up for a slouchier, oversized look (like Julia, shown wearing the sweater in camel).

Available in Black and Camel.

Styled with the Jackson Boots.

"Comfortable & functional." - Christine

Featuring a pointed toe and cone heel à la Marcella favorites Leo and Harlow, our Jackson Boots are designed with a just-right mid calf height to complete the trifecta. Chicly slouchy in Italian leather, Jackson's clean, ultra-versatile style has the sophisticated edge to elevate any outfit. From workdays to nights out and everything in between, Jackson will be your new secret weapon for pull-on-and-go polish.

Available in Black.

"Unique & practical." - Christine

She's inspired by the structured bowling bag, but our Mott Top Handle Purse adds refinement and elegance to the look. In luxurious spazzolato leather, Mott has an enchanting sheen complemented by silver-toned detailing. With a roomy main compartment with a zipper closure and two smaller internal pockets, Mott also features a small zip pocket at the front for plenty of storage, while two top handles and a long removable shoulder strap give you carrying options.

Available in Black.

Styled with our Kaden Boots.
