Product Care

Here are helpful hints on how to care for the various types of fabric in your wardrobe.

Cotton
Machine wash cotton garments in cold water, gentle cycle with like colors. Only when absolutely necessary should non-chlorine bleach be used. Dry the garment flat to help keep its shape and prolong its life. Use a warm iron when needed. Please check the garment label for instructions regarding special care.

Cashmere & Wool
We recommend professional dry cleaning to care for cashmere, wool, lambswool, merino, gabardine and stretch wool garments. Please check the garment label for instructions regarding special care.

Linen
Because it is cool, lightweight and dries faster than other fabrics, linen is ideal for vacationing and warm-weather wear. Professional dry cleaning is recommended for linen garments, and a warm iron is helpful to help maintain a crisp look. Please check the label for instructions regarding special care.

Silk
To best maintain the soft, resilient and lustrous fiber (originally derived from the cocoons of silkworms), professional dry cleaning is recommended. Please check the garment label for instructions regarding special care.

Leather & Suede
Fine leather and suede garments should always be professionally cleaned. Garments should be stored in an unzipped bag and kept as far away from direct sunlight as possible.

Synthetics
Some of the finest synthetic fibers on the market are used by many of fashion's top designers. Whether the garments are made from nylon, spandex, polyester, rayon, viscose rayon, nylon-spandex blend or matte jersey, professional cleaning is recommended. Please check the garment label for instructions regarding special care.

Blends
For the care and cleaning of luxurious fabrics such as velvet and chenille, dry cleaning is recommended. Please check the garment label for instructions regarding special care.
