Tomas Maier has been the (ridiculously handsome) creative director at the luxe leather weaver, as well as carrying his own line and boutiques.

Maier’s designs for his own label are all about classic form, streamlines and structure.  Investing in his pieces is a wise play as there is very little trending about his clothing other than classic design.

Tomas has just opened a shop in NYC, to compliment his East Hampton and Palm Beach locations, and reversecommuter knows exactly where she is headed next New York jaunt!

Harvard Business Review just released it’s list of the Top 100 Performing CEO‘s, and retail has a huge positioning!  Please keep in  mind reversecommuter’s background is finance, so this merging of my two worlds (fashion & finance) makes me a little giddy!

Luxury fashion houses were not on the list at all but there were a few solid retail representations nonetheless.
