St. John is an American luxury house that was founded in 1962 by Robert and Marie Gray. The brand’s simple beginnings started when a knitting machine inspired Marie to design dresses for herself. A fascinating coming together of craft and couture based on the premise of a simple, yet elegant knit dress. Over the years, the brand has evolved, but the basis for the collection remains the same today as it did from the very start – effortless, alluring and refined clothing that appeals to women all over the world. Unique American Design with a core in signature innovative knits and an undisputed reputation for luxury and quality. St. John continues to expand globally and build on the legacy created in 1962.
Maison Common is the smallest but one of the finest fashion houses in Germany. The smallest because Rieke likes to keep the company flexible and the finest because the house is dedicated to the most luxurious materials and detailing. Also, Maison Common allows itself the luxury to produce in Germany. The collections are always colorful and feminine with couture aspects and ironic twists but at the same time very modern and straight. The perfect fit is the core business of Maison Common. Rieke and her team are perfectionist when it come to quality. The fabrics are developed in cooperation with the finest weavers and printers in the world. Almost every print is designed by Maison Common and developed later in Como Italy. The same is for buttons and trimmings, everything is designed and developed from scratch.
From the beginning Ted has had a very clear, unswerving, focus on quality, attention to detail and a quirky sense of humour, so much so in fact that the first stores used to provide a laundry service for every shirt purchased – something that gained the quickly growing brand the title of ‘No Ordinary Designer Label’. Everything produced under the Ted Baker name has his personality woven into its very heart.
As you would expect from Ted, the approach to marketing the brand remains the same as it was from day one … primarily by word of mouth and out of the ordinary marketing. What other brand would give away Paxo stuffing at Christmas, a can of chocolate bunny hotpot for Easter, or even special world-cup 2006 football cards, Roy of the Rovers style? Ted remains one of the only brands to be built into an international designer label without an advertising campaign.
High Quality, Beautiful, Norwegian Goods
Oleana was founded in 1992, with the aim of creating new jobs in Norway’s textile industry. Most of Western Europe’s production had by that time moved to countries with far cheaper labour, but we wanted to show that it is still possible to produce textiles of good quality in a high-cost country like Norway. We have always tended towards alternative thinking and going against the main-stream.
Oleana’s collection is produced in their own factory in Norway. “Fair made” is a slogan we believe we can take pride in using.
As a young woman traveling the world, Misook Doolittle realized she needed a wardrobe that packed well, but was still elegant. Being on the go meant that she didn’t have time for trips back and forth to the drycleaners, but she wasn’t willing to sacrifice style. And that was the inspiration that lead to Exclusively Misook.
The first pieces were hand-knit by the designer herself. With a background as a painter, Misook used her trained eye to create unique silhouettes and color palettes. The pieces looked fashionable, but still felt comfortable; they resisted wrinkles and could be cared for at home. Soon friends and strangers were stopping her, asking for a Misook creation of their own.
Decades later Misook still designs the line herself, as well as serving as the company’s president. And she still travels the world, always packing Exclusively Misook. “I design what I love to wear, and what I need for my busy life. I’m fortunate that so many other women share my vision.”

The journey symbol within our logo reflects the lengthy passage our product makes from the cold and inhospitable plains of Inner Mongolia where the fiber is hand-combed from the finest downy fleece of the cashmere goat through a very long journey of refinement to ultimately become a Kinross-quality garment.
