Co - A Considered Collection

Compelling fashion doesn’t require a lot of frills to create an impact.  Like sparse dialogue in a black and white movie, a well-made dress stands out because of the elegant drape of the fabric.  There’s an intriguing interplay between the movement of the dress and light that holds your attention.  Artistic film-makers understand the power of understatement and know how to use shadows for special effect.





Soft gathers create flattering drape and flowy movement on a crepe-back satin midi dress that has a vintage, yet timeless charm.




With a desire to create a “considered, cohesive, wardrobe,” Stephanie Danan and Justin Kern founded Co in 2011.  This creative coalition of fashion and film professionals has produced a collection that has elevated restraint to an art form.  Flattering pleats and signature gathering at the shoulders add subtle distinction, and a minimal palette of ivory and black is complemented by pensive plum and sophisticated shades of gray.  Co's A-line dresses, featuring metallic jacquard and lustrous satin, are bound to top your closet 
A-list this Fall.  

The “Essentials” line by Co features sophisticated separates for day and evening.  The tailored suiting jacket will make all of your other black blazers feel like understudies.  The tie-neck cashmere sweater, perfect for slim skirts and trousers, feels more decisive than a 
v-neck pullover.  Depending on your mood, the crepe peasant dress is an effortless choice to embellish with a double strand of pearls or colorful silk scarf.  And the crop flare jeans, made from 100% cotton, are destined to become a classic.
