Velvet by Graham and Spencer has become one of our signature lines at Vintage Fringe. Designers Jenny Graham and Toni Spencer started this contemporary casual collection with a desire to mix quality, comfort and yet still maintain a distinctive fashion style. This philosophy is found in all of Velvet’s pieces. While Velvet by Graham and Spencer is a contemporary T-shirt collection, a majority of their pieces are far more than simple T-Shirts. Made with a range of soft and wearable fabrics including baby jersey knits, slinky rayon, and even cashmere, the combination of different fabrics and distinctive styles and designs gives Velvet’s line a broad distinction from other lines.
Velvet has a variety of constant fabrics that you can always rely on to provide comfortable and fashionable looks. Here are a few of our favorites:
Velvet’s Baby Jersey collection features a super soft jersey knit fabric and of course is machine washable. Velvet features their basics within this fabric and then also offers their Novelty pieces which include feminine touches and more contemporary looks. Another Velvet constant is their Gauzy whisper collection. Made of thinner knit fabric that is sheerer than the thicker baby jersey fabrics, the Gauzy whisper pieces often feature raw hem edges and often include rucheing or gathered fabric incorporated into various aspects of the tops. One of our absolute favorites is the Slinky Rayon collection by Velvet. Made of a luxurious feeling Rayon, the Slinky Rayon collection often features more contemporary styles that exude contemporary femininity. Slinky rayon pieces feature fewer colors, but deep, rich colors such as black, navy, some type of an awesome silver color, and often a wine purple color. Slinky rayon is dry clean only, but oh so worth it!
Some of our best sellers at Vintage Fringe are Velvet pieces including the Kelisha tank, a long tank top, which is part of Velvet’s Baby Jersey collection. Featuring a length that is difficult to find in most tanks, this tank hits our 5’7” model about mid-thigh. This is the perfect piece to layer under the ever popular tunic tops right now and works great with leggings. Another great piece by Velvet is one of our newer arrivals at Vintage Fringe the Marni Slub Dress. This dress features a cowlneck at the top, wide short sleeves, a drawstring waist and pockets on the front at waist level. Made of their winter slub fabric it includes a heavier slub fabric that still feels ultra luxurious and oh so stylish. It is still 100% cotton, but has some texture to it and is machine washable.
In short, we are confident that you will fall in love with Velvet by Graham and Spencer just as we have. We love the contemporary look and while some of the pieces are basics, we think you’ll agree that high quality pieces may be more expensive, but often outlast their cheaper counterparts. Not to mention that when Velvet does go modern and incorporate distinctive trends such as ruffles or tunic length tops, their tops are absolutely stunning. For all of these reasons, Velvet by Graham and Spencer should be one of your wardrobe staples.
