Partow

"In New York, there's a quiet movement of designers who are rethinking and elevating the humble concept of American Sportswear. Nellie Partow might be the most under-the-radar name on the list, but the success of Partow's label suggests that wont be the case for long. It's stocked in the best stores and websites and in recent seasons she has tapped some of the most iconic models to star in her lookbook. " Vogue.com

Partow has the kind of refined aesthetic (formally trained at Calvin Klein and Donna Karen before launching her own label)  that toes the line between easy and sophisticated. All her fabrics are made in Italy and the all the garments are proudly made in New York.
