GILDED AGE SPRING/SUMMER 2011


THE GOAL WAS NOT TO ONLY GO FARTHER THAN ANYONE HAD EVER GONE BEFORE, BUT AS FAR AS IT WAS POSSIBLE

Words, Images Judith Ecochard

 John Bartlett looks on...khaki cotton/linen, cotton tee, cotton rib knit pants

Decades before Pan Am made the going great--- there was the 1937 Pan American Clipper Martin-M-130  that brought the adventurous to far flung locales.




































This intoxicating combo of a death-defying journey fused with a luxurious flourish (air con, heated, linens, real silverware and professional service, dressing rooms---PLUSH) was the jump off point for Gilded Age’s creative guru Stefan Miljanic who showed look after look of sun worthy separates,  destined for travels abroad.

We thought tout de suite...oh guys will wear this.





































The ultimate luxury, simple clean- high end fabrics, hand wrought details.





































Casual fitting and soft textured woven shirts, with sleeve tabs for roll-ups, functional epaulets,




































Brown Leather Jackets too.

Denim showed up hand distressed, ankles bare for galloping waves on the beach. And for diving right in...cotton/nylon board shorts.


In purple, pink, khaki, red and blue selvage jeans….in a variety of washes.





































Up top, polished jackets, and weather friendly blazers and cashmere sweaters for cooler nights by the sea.

And vintage print ties.
WHAT ELSE WE LOVED: The canvas leather bags.


We were transported.
