If the name Patmos rings a bell, it’s possibly because label founder Marcia Patmos won you over with Lutz & Patmos, the luxury knitwear line she used to create with her friend and fellow designer, Tina Lutz. In crafting her eponymous label, Patmos draws inspiration from art, antique items, and architecture to design women’s wardrobe essentials that are both timeless and contemporary. Working with artisan communities all around the world, Patmos uses her special touch to create exquisitely textured sweater dresses, sheer-paneled cardigans, woven ultra-suede vests, and other separates that feel as comfortable and soft as your favorite T-shirt.
Sleek jeans, strappy heels, and more, saturated in the hottest hue of the moment.
Nothing freshens up a winter wardrobe like an impeccably made pair of gloves or a cashmere scarf in an eye-catching new color. And no one does a better job of crafting those winter essentials than the fine folks at this storied Italian label.
It’s no coincidence that prestige labels like Moschino and Alberta Ferretti turn to this family business (currently run by a third generation of Portolano brothers) for distinctive knitted products. The company’s line has expanded to include pashmina scarves, sporty knit hats, and other eye-catching accessories, like those available in this sale. But some things haven’t changed: the immaculately knit cashmere and wool garments are still created with the precision that has helped make Portolano a byword for excellence since 1895.
Who said little things can’t make a big impact? This collection of belts, gloves, scarves, and more may be perfectly sized to fit inside that stocking, but they’ve got style in no small measure. Stock up, and get that gifting game in order.
