Co-owners and designers Osore Oyagha and Eloise Simonet create casual men's and women's threads, producing locally by sourcing in New York and constructing in a midtown factory. Hailing from Nigeria and Jamaica, respectively, the duo use their cultures as inspiration, incorporating colorful, breezy fabrics to create men’s trousers ($195–$425), women’s silk floral tops ($125) and patterned pocket tees ($50–$125). The store also carries European apothecary brands, such as Tallba from Sweden, Luxo Banho from Portugal, Tabiano from Italy and Saltsjo Tval from Sweden ($3–$25); plus, an Ale et Ange line of soap is in the works.
