Founded in 1989, TSE (pronounced “say”) was formed with the intention of redefining the use of cashmere and altering the perception that luxury has to be traditional. TSE has become a leader in taking a modern approach to cashmere by exploring the possibilities of the fiber while also expanding the collection into a complete expression of modern dressing. Known for its attention to detail and high quality standards, TSE has created a true simple luxury. The TSE Collections, designed by Creative Director Tina Lutz, are currently available at TSECashmere.com and freestanding TSE stores worldwide.
Keeping with the 25 year old brand’s intention of redefining fabrics and altering the perception that luxury must be traditional, Jill Heller and C.L.A.S.S. founder, Guisy Bettoni, introduced the TSE design team to the Rico fabric by Tessile Naturale, working from start to finish, from fabric color cards to swatches and finally the finished product. The end result is a chic and versatile vest produced in two colors, skin and steel blue. TSE’s choice to use a pure organic cotton echos the conscious efforts by their company to use sustainable materials when possible. TSE’s commitment to sustainable fashion continues with the use of Italian organic cotton, organic linen, and recycled cotton canvas throughout the Collection.
