News__ Alex & Eli Make Suits

April 26, 2010 | By

Anna Zeman and Aja Singer of  Alex and Eli make men’s clothing--for women. Inspired by the swagger of classic men’s suiting, the New York-based line, marries masculine looks with flirtatious school-girl energy. A shared background in science (both initially considered careers in medicine) is reflected in their logical, clear-cut S/S '10 collection. You can just picture Zeman and Singer poring over measurements with a magnifying glass in one hand, ruler in the other, fine tuning every last seam. Omitting superfluous frills in favour of simplicity, Alex & Eli is very New York, all refined elegance with a tomboy spirit--kind of like what you imagine Jil Sander making if she hung out with Kim Gordon and drank PBRs.

Currently on the road as part of Parlor showroom’s guerrilla-style trunk show, Alex & Eli, is hitting 17 States in a fully stocked RV all month. See our favorites from the S/S '10 collection below.
