Of a Kind is truly a one-of-a-kind e-commerce site. Launched by two fashion insiders via Tumblr, each product is made in limited quantities for something extra special. Today marks the launch of Thomas Sires' Evelyne Shirt. There are only 22 of the stripey French terry tops available, and each retails for $175. (It's the perfect beach cover-up, but well-made enough to wear with a khaki skirt to work on Fridays.)
Some background: Thomas Sires is a most perfect NoLita concept boutique featuring an in-house collection of French-inspired wares, as well as plenty of knick knacks, from Saipua soaps to globe wax balloons. "It was an exciting opportunity for us to work with Of a Kind since our business is so new and the site is such a unique approach to e-commerce," designers/shop owners Fiona Thomas and Allison Sires told us. "We sell Thomas Sires in our store, so it was great to recreate a style that has been very successful for us and present it in a new way and to a broader audience online. The shirt is very much a representation of our brand both the design (we love a stripe) and the quality, a very soft Japanese French terry. We had a great time working on this collaboration."
