This month’s design was inspired by simple geometric shapes to create a versatile silhouette. Seamlessly uniting form with function, the DE SMET Transformative Tie Dress is a new take on the wrap dress. Made in soft tencel twill, detailed with overlapped side panels for easy wrapping at front or back. Reversible front to back styling for a high or low neckline. Available in both Poppyseed (pictured above) and Bosc (pictured below). Layer over jeans and a tee, or wear on its own as a dress, this is the ultimate layering piece to take you through the seasons.

Editorial Eclipse: Fashion Revolution

suited-magazine-fashioning-a-movement-fashion-revolution-sustainable-fashion-2-desmitten

SUITED Magazine shows how fashionable sustainability actually is in this month’s editorial entitled Fashioning a Movement. Stylist Renata Gar piles on layers of clothing from sustainable designers including Kowtow, Lauren Manoogian, Paris Georgia Basics and shoes by Suzanne Rae. Does the nomadic feeling of the imagery hint at a lifestyle we may have to adopt because of environmental impacts of the fashion industry? In a world where fast fashion prevails and stores introducing new styles weekly, sustainable fashion can often sound like a dirty word.
What most consumers don’t realize is the power they hold with their dollar. You vote for change through every dollar you put into the fashion industry. If you continue to spend your money at fast fashion retailers, they will continue to over produce more clothing that end up in landfills. Choosing to invest in clothing made by workers who make a living wage, shows your support for a growing, sustainable fashion industry. SUITED sat down with Shivam Punjya, US ambassador of Fashion Revolution (a global movement and non-profit organization who believes in a fashion industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure) to discuss the importance of sustainability in fashion. Read the full article here.

Invest in Timeless Design: DE SMET Shirt Jacket

de-smet-tenth-shirt-jacket-made-in-nyc-3-desmitten

When investing in new pieces for your well-edited wardrobe, versatility is key. I always ask myself, can I wear this garment for more than one season, more than one occasion and will it withstand my bi-annual end-of-season purge? This is how I design pieces for DE SMET, including the Shirt Jacket that launched yesterday. Pictured here in white, this is how I like to wear the DE SMET Shirt Jacket for winter: Layered between a light-weight turtleneck and a kimono coat, tucked into high-waist jeans. It adds a fresh pop of white to an otherwise somber ensemble. Come springtime, I will wear this style as a jacket over my favorite t-shirt or on its own as a shirt.
