Our Designers



Bryn Walker
Image
A nice collection of yummy fabrics and good colors. Moderately priced. We can all count on Bryn’s designs. Cottons, corduroys, linens and cashmeres. All easy care. Another great San Francisco designer!

Caite
Image
This collection is so pretty.  It reminds us of our roots when Collected Works first began.  Clothing As Art was, and still is, our mantra.  The lively bouquets of embroidery trickling down the tees and jackets are charming.  You will love this line. 

COMFY
Image
Comfy knows that Collected Works is the perfect venue for their designs.  They insisted that we carry their line...and we're glad they did!

Completo
Image
So much vibrant fun from The Netherlands!  Creative 100% natural fibers.  Great designs for all shapes.  Lots of yummy linen in spring & summer and comfortable wool and corduroy in fall and winter.

Cut Loose
Image
Lovely, casual American-made. Nicely priced, good designs, and comfortable fabrics. We all need lots of Cutloose in our closets!

Cynthia Ashby
Image
Lovely Chicagoan Cynthia. Her detail and fabrics make her garment-dyed collection a real treat. The designs are Cynthia’s alone. Collectable. Gorgeous!

Firefly
Image
The colors on Firefly jewelry are magnificent.  Handcrafted with intricate designs and Swarovski crystals.  This line will light up any face and any outfit.

Flax
Image
Is the proverbial Collected Works style: Relaxed, great natural fibers, easy-wear, easy-care. Summer goes great with Flax.

I.C. Collection
Image
I C Collection has such a variety of interesting designs and fabrics. We are always excited to get a shipment from them. This line is easy to wear but quite extraordinary in its European, one-of-a-kind styling. Our customers always want to be called whenever I C comes in. I C Collection is made in the USA!

J P & Mattie
Image
This collection has a vintage, Bohemian flair.  The fab?rics used are from natural fibers, which brings Collected Works right back to our beginnings.  The fabrics are hand-dyed in root and vegetable dyes and dried in the sun.  We love the soft, artisan look of these pieces.

Lee Andersen
Image
Lee Andersen is, perhaps, Collected Works most delicious designer! This beautifully-detailed collection is truly wearable art.

This is our go-to line for moms of the bride or groom because these pieces are treasures that celebrate special occasions.

We can order this line from Small through 3X.

Luna Luz
Image
This line is visually delightful.  Cotton and comfortable.  Wearing  Luna Luz will make heads turn.  

Just in a new linen collection from Luna.
Relaxed and easy, but very fashion-forward.  A great little line.

Niche Clothing
Image
It was love at first sight for Irene and Niche! The attention to detail in this line makes me tear up. This is a designer who so gets women's bodies, that just an extra seam can put the garment on a new level and so flatter our figures. Made in the USA.

No Blue/
Breakfast in Tokyo
Irene loves No Blu and wears it all the time! The cotton pucker collection is so much fun, easy to wear, simple to wash and easy to travel with. San Francisco designer Alex loves her craft and it shows.

Image
Nomadic Traders/
Apropos

 
Nomadic Traders is a hip little line.  Smaller sizing.  Casual and comfortable, many customers carry this line with them when they travel.

Sympli
Image
Comfortable and flattering, we love this Canadian line. Fabulous color choices. Limitless possibilities. A great travel line. You will not believe how good this easy fabric makes you look! We have everyday and special-occasion collections. We put Sympli in the store in ’05 but did not have the room to do the line justice. While we were designing our new space we were dreaming of Sympli and could not wait to have it be a part of our collections.

Teresa Goodall
Image
Baubles, bangles and beads. There is nothing like Teresa Goodall’s jewelry. We are so happy to have this collection in our cases. Some of our customers collect these wonderful, whimsical pieces. Hand-made in Minnesota.

Tianello
Image
We brought California-made Tianello to Ann Arbor decades ago and are still very fond of this line. I think we will always carry their tencel collection. It is the best. We do know, however, that there is always something new up their sleeve; that makes us happy.

URU
Image
Irene loves the luxury of this line.  You can never have too much silk in your closet.  Relaxed fit and easy care.  We have customers who wear URU to shop at the farmer's market and customers who wear URU to special events; the line is that versatile and addicting!
