Distinguished by the phantom M embroidery on the back pockets and figure-flattering cuts, the line focuses on designing denim inspired by its humble origins in workwear. However, head designer Marianne McDonald incorporates modern cuts based on her background in sportswear.  After she left the Gap design team in 2010, McDonald vacationed in Nimes, France.

Featured Brand: Go< by GoSilk

The GoSilk brand is rooted in history—literally. Used silk WWII parachutes that had grown soft from being washed after every jump inspired one of the first designers for the brand. He created a line of skirts from the recycled materials and they sold out in Paris immediately. While getting our hands on one of those vintage skirts would be a dream come true, it’s not likely. Thankfully, we carry the go > by GoSilk brand here at Estilo. Founded in 1977 New York by Jerry Hirsch, the GoSilk brand creates sophisticated sportswear made from touchable, washable silk. The go > by GoSilk branch of the brand is like the younger sister—more stylish, trendy, but still respecting the DNA of the...
