Online, you can check it out at Saks.com and Shopbop.com, and in New York, it’s being sold at Bergdorf’s, Bloomingdales, Intermix, Scoop and more.
The brand is run by Sean Barron, a fashion mogul who was behind the lines Katyone Adeli and Joie – both major, and by singer/artist/designer Cynthia Mittweg, whose blogs you have probably seen on Fashionrules.com from time to time.
