Once Upon A Tome-------
After launching Tome back in September, designers Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin already have a striking clarity of purpose when it comes to their identity and customer. Picking up where they left off last season, Tome’s latest lineup articulates the idea of everyday essentials with a progressive twist. There are plenty of updated basics, including crisp button-ups (shirting has quickly become a commercial focus) and slim pencil skirts cut from a “suck you up and in” jersey blend. But Lobo and Ramon make sure to balance out their versatile pieces with a few fun ones, like a crinkled copper lamé slipdress and structured boatneck sweaters with exaggerated, cocoon-shaped arms. Debuting here on Style.com: Tome’s Fall video, shot near the designers’ Lower East Side studio, which demonstrates how this collection simultaneously stands out and blends in with New York sidewalk style.
