Wondering who we are?
We're just a husband and wife team trying to justify our shopping addiction.
Sheffield MacIntyre Bessellieu
Between dressing up in her mother’s wardrobe and tagging along at auctions and estate sales with her father, Sheffield got hooked on the thrill of the hunt. Her target? Vintage clothing - particularly creations by the top designers of yesterday and today. Today, her finds are being worn by stars for the red carps, gracing the cover of magazines, and being archived by couture fashion houses.
“There is something special about vintage clothing,” says Bessellieu. “Wearing it allows me to transform an outfit from something run of the mill to something extraordinary. Most people shop at the same handful of stores. I prefer to look at the current trends and mix them with something from the past to create a one of a kind look.”
A born again style connoisseur, Steven shed his engineer's pocket protect and found his niche by combining his love of thrift with an appreciation for how all (well made) things are made. Steven finds beauty in the more technical and historical aspects of the creative process.
And how could we forget: Mr. Puccini (Pucci), mascot
Named after Emilio of course, our 14-year-old Shih-Tzu is trained in the art of nap-taking, and serves as the company's dedicated greeter and moral booster. Despite a shirt and sweater collection that rivals most human men's closets, Pucci manages to look stylish (okay, cute) wearing nothing at all!
