I recently discovered Chicago-based Suki + Solaine, and quickly wondered how I ever lived without this luxe brand that balances comfort with intrigue: using luxuriously soft modal, original prints, and stunning cuts that flatter a range of figures. After meeting with the team’s In-house Sales Rep. Jen Dobransky at the West Town showroom, I instantly loved her, and the line she passionately represents (she is the model featured above).
Jen and founder Brandi Archer are supportive and enthusiastic towards The SEWN Co.’s mission, and I feel so fortunate to be working with these women and featuring this line that I personally cannot get enough of – truly, I own practically the entire Summer transition line and a few quintessential Fall pieces that will be coming soon to thesewnco.com.

Suki + Solaine is committed to manufacturing in US, and designs for an active, modern woman who needs effortless, versatile clothes that suit every facet of her life.
The brand was founded around Creative Director Brandi Archer’s (financier turned lawyer turned fashion entrepreneur) concept for a collection of high-end knitwear essentials and quickly became known for deliciously soft tees and dresses in modern but wearable silhouettes. When designer Nicole Puszynski (hails from Alexander Wang and Narcisco Rodriguez) joined the team, she brought a new point of view to the brand with her insistence on adding a healthy mix of woven textiles – including fluttery silks, smart twills, and custom jacquards. Together, they’ve evolved Suki +Solaine into a smart, urban, city-chic brand known for its luxe fabrications, exclusive digital prints, and facile use of line and texture.
