Sophia McMahon

Bold in the most calculated of ways, it is the kind of label all your street style dreams are made off. No crazy sleeves that will stop you from eating your meal while looking good, but instead a line dedicated to luxe hardware, with premium fabrics and crisp tailoring which is accessible both in its functionality and price point. We call it the refined take on Instagram worthy fashion.
