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 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.
