Like Rag & Bone, Gilded Age began as a denim label. A stickler for colors and washes, designer Stefan Miljanic remains obsessed with the fabric, although he has now expanded the label to include a full range of garments. Gilded Age clothes have an understated character anyone can pull off. There is nothing tricky about a denim jacket, or jeans with the right wash, or a striped sweater. The clothes have an effortless, distinctly American personality, and they stand up to wear and tear. Without bells and whistles, Miljanic gets the details right.
