Gap, Eileen Fisher, J. Crew -Simple lines, good fabrics
Zoran, Uniform dressing, kit of parts approach, luxe fabrics
Alabama Chanin- rich detail, -t shirt feel but OTT decoration

So much of what I like is determined by tactile feel. I love the way a beaded dress hangs on a body, actually carrying the weight of it. There is a sensualness to cashmere and alpaca that soothes me even beyond just the warmth. Even in my writing I end up describing how a character feels in their clothes whether it is an Armani suit or well worn flannels and sweats.
