Designer Spotlight: Dana

One of the most beloved designers we have ever carried, Dana Pisarra has won legions of loyal fans in our customer base. These women have learned first hand the versatility of Dana’s designs, and eagerly await the latest seasonal offerings that they can add to their extensive collections of colors and styles.
Knitwear company Dana was founded in the 1940’s, and acquired by the Pisarra family in the 1980’s. It has since been a family enterprise, passing from father to son. The Pisarra’s have maintained the original artisanal aspects of the brand, continuing to employ the finest designers, seamstresses and craftspeople to produce their seasonally evolving collections.
Their classic offering: ultra-lightweight ribbed camisoles, made from the highest quality silks, wools, cottons, and cashmeres. These treasures are as wearable as they are luxurious, adding no bulk when layered under other apparel & feeling like a dream against the skin. While variations on these designs make up a large percentage of the Dana Pisarra collection, they also release other seasonal styles which often cusp the line between lounge and outerwear.
All of their designs showcase a unique range of wearability. Many of the camisoles integrate lace to the straps or neckline, offering the option to have this element show… or not, as the wearer decides. The extended length makes them ideal for tucking into a skirt or trousers, and their infinite stretch makes them a beautiful gift option, and also keeps them functional through fluctuations in weight.
One true consistency in Dana’s creations: the materials and construction are always top of the line. This season’s linen pieces are crisp and lightweight, while last winters cashmere blends showcase how cozy something whisper light can truly be. All of the materials offer a luxurious hand, something that you will long to keep next to your skin after the day is complete.
