Co Fashion for Women
Before founding Co with Justin Kern, Stephanie Danan was a film producer, which is why the label's collections often have such a characterful quality. This denim dress is modeled after '40s tea dresses with puffed sleeves, a nipped-in waist and full skirt. We like how the belt buckle is covered with the same fabric.
Co's Stephanie Danan says her background in film is essential to how she works as a fashion designer – along with co-founder and partner Justin, they carefully consider the story of each piece and how it will fit into a woman's wardrobe. Spun from the softest merino wool, this ivory sweater is cut for a slightly loose fit and has a flouncy peplum hem. Wear yours with tailored pants or jeans, depending on the occasion.
Co is one of those labels with a definite aesthetic - each collection includes elements of ease and polish, femininity and practicality, and is always characterized by fine fabrics, it says.

We first spotted Co's sweater at the label's Resort '18 presentation in New York members' club, Spring Place – the vintage decor really complemented the '40s-inspired designs.

The gathered panels along the shoulders and V-neckline add to the flattering silhouette.

The humble cardigan is experiencing a renaissance, and we love this cozy version by Co.
