From United Bamboo, New York’s quintessential label for preppy downtown cool with a slightly off-kilter vibe comes one notable, affordable collaboration with Madewell that hits stores today…
Over the past decade, New York’s United Bamboo has continually delivered well-made goods that subtly evoke the spirit of the avant-garde without forgoing an easy wear for fashion’s sake. We’ve seen them riff on nautical & architectural themes, preppy regalia, tailoring of all sort -all envisioned with an arty bent that begs onlookers to look twice, in the right kind of way.

Most gracious of the effort is the chance to nab one of United Bamboo’s covetable, forever-stylish parkas for less than half of the main line’s retail price. That’s the kind of collabo news that will have us considering braving a cue, what about you?
Other than the intriguing Nieman Marcus & Target holiday collection, this is one outing we’ll be keeping our eye on.
