Two seasons ago, during New York fashion week, we found ourselves walking up flights of stairs in a non-descript building on 66 Allen Street. We were in search of Verlaine, an under the radar label that had been steadily gaining buzz amongst those in the know for its artfully draped and tailored garments.
Greeting us at the door of a 2nd floor suite was Javier Garcia, the Spanish-born New York-based former financier who decided to launch his own label designed by Christine Dow. Our eyes immediately drifted to a rack of beautifully draped long coats that were a modern edgy spin on the traditional abaya. By the end of our visit we decided to collaborate with Verlaine on a capsule collection of sleek abayas for our D’NA customers.
Reflecting Verlaine’s dark, minimalist take on fashion, this unique abaya collection fuses tradition with expert tailoring and luxurious details for a thoroughly modern look, fusing East and West.
Stop by D’NA today to discover this unique collection.
