What goes into the ideal wardrobe? This is the question Apiece Apart co-founders and friends Star Houtt and Laura Cramer asked themselves during a mutual 30th birthday trip to West Texas. Inspired by the state’s vast, uncluttered beauty, the pair wanted to design the kind of streamlined, simplified clothes that can be mixed and matched into a countless perfect outfits; pieces that feel special, but are classic enough to keep on rotation for years. A keen attention to streamlined, unfussy silhouettes, impeccable tailoring and luxe, lasts-forever fabrications helped them realize this vision in 2008. Dozens of well-received collections later, Apiece Apart sandals, coats, and dresses continue to be sought-after wardrobe staples today.
