Clare Hare Darien is a luxury resortwear company specializing in golfwear. The company, started in 2005, distributes its clothing through upscale country clubs and resorts (primarily in the Northeast and
Florida), high-end boutiques and through an ecommerce channel. The line solves the problem for women searching for longer hem-lengths and nonperformancewear fabrics, as the clothing is made of imported fabrics in mostly all cotton. All pieces are manufactured in the USA , in the Garment District in New York City. The label consists of: skorts, sun-protective shirts, tunics, dresses, Bermuda shorts and Capri pants. The clothing represents a “lifestyle brand’ that can be worn on vacation or in town and crosses over into the athleisure space: a trend in fashion where clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings such as during work, casual or social occasions.
Clare Hare started her career as a consultant and investment banker, and after being married and having 3 children, started her apparel business. She has always had a love of textiles and has an interest in manufacturing. She is a member of Save the Garment Center and a portion of her sales from sun-protective items supports the Melanoma Research Alliance, an organization that is involved in research to save lives from skin cancer.
Armarium is the premiere destination for on-demand luxury. Members are provided with access to the runway’s most coveted pieces– all of which can be borrowed whenever needed. Comprised of an elite team of fashion insiders, Armarium was officially launched in April 2016 through an invite-only mobile app, e-commerce platform and a New York City showroom. The program includes not only the ability to borrow pieces from our expertly curated lineup of couture, ready-to- wear, and accessories, but also, the option of hiring one of a number of professional stylists to assist with your day-of dressing needs. Dubbed the Style Brigade, some of the talent on Armarium’s retainer includes: Meredith Melling, Valerie Boster, Siobhan Bonnouvrier, Karla Martinez de Salas and Shiona Turini. Because Armarium doesn’t just send you clothes—it provides the look, too, if you want it.
