Known to be one of the oldest forms of footwear, sandals are a wardrobe essential thousands of years in the making. As the sun starts to shine, slip into timeless Leather Sandals.

A simple starting point to anchor any look. Silky and refined, shiny or sheer, a silk shirt is a timeless essential for a classic wardrobe. 

A surprising wardrobe staple, day or night, mini, midi, or maxi, find a leather skirt that’s forever and wear it with anything.

Loose and enveloping, layered undercoats, or effortlessly wrapped up as a dress. Kimonos have become a modern-day wardrobe essential.

Simple and essential. A turtleneck whether slim-fitting, slouchy, or sleeveless is an endlessly useful wardrobe piece.
