Having spent her early career at Dior, Michelle Waugh has the experience (and confidence) to know that her design skills are most valuable in the realm of outerwear, thus making it the sole focus of her label. A marriage of masculine tailoring, impeccable fits, and luxe fabrics, her long-lined, fluid coats and boxy jackets are considered rare gems among industry insiders. Here, find warm-weather updates to her signatures, cut in silks and cotton denim, alongside the debut of raincoats in custom prints. All materials are sourced from sustainable, fair-labor mills, and every piece is hand-finished in NYC.
The buy: the silk Jany trench—equally chic worn alone or under the Emilie.
