Garbarini-top-designers

Garbarini carries over 100 different designers, specializing in everything from denim, to shoes, to handbags, to different styles of clothing in general. While we love and appreciate each and every one of these incredible designers, below is a deeper look into some of the top designers sold in our Denver boutique.

AG Jeans


AG was launched in 2000 by Yul Ku, a pioneer in the denim industry. While AG is rooted in denim, their evolution from an exclusively premium denim brand to a contemporary lifestyle brand began in 2008 when Yul Ku’s son Samuel, took over as the brand's Creative Director. Since then, Samuel and the AG design team have focused their efforts on seamlessly integrating complete collections that reflect the true sensibility of the brand: Chic. Sophisticated. Classic.

A great aspect of AG is that they truly believe in being socially active and responsible. They use Ozone Technology and ecoconscious fibers, and they parter with charity: water, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. So you can feel even better about buying those amazing pair of AG jeans at Garbarini!

NICOLE MILLER


Nicole Miller is a renowned American fashion designer, known for her signature graphic prints, innovative silhouettes and skillful draping. Through her time at Rhode Island School of Design and the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris, she mastered the classic French techniques of haute couture, while keeping her sense of freedom and creativity. The Nicole Miller brand was launched in 1992 and became well known in the retail industry for popularizing the little black dress.

Over the past 25 years, the brand has since garnered a loyal following of celebrity fans including Angelina Jolie, Beyoncé, and Blake Lively, amongst others. Nicole is a CFDA board member, and has been the recipient of numerous industry awards such as the Legend of Fashion Award (2006), Fashion Group International Lifetime Achievement Award (2012), and the Visionary Woman Award (2014).

Another top designer at Garbarini that is a strong believer in protecting our natural environment, Miller actively supports the Rocky Mountain Institute and Robert Kennedy Jr.'s Riverkeeper.

L'AGENCE


L’AGENCE embodies the Los Angeles effortless lifestyle with an understated Parisian influence. Since the brand started in 2008, the California-based label has maintained its identity while using luxury fabrics and modern designs to produce timeless ready-to-wear pieces for women.

They launched their denim assortment in 2015, which quickly became the brand’s top selling classification. A goal of L’AGENCE is to provide women with a feminine, versatile wardrobe that helps her elevate her personal style. Combining style, cut and fit, the category has since become the brand’s top selling classification.

Producing 11 collections a year, L'AGENCE is available in approximately 300 doors in the US with major retailers such as Intermix, Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom – and Garbarini!

Another brand that the Hollywood stars tend to love – brand ambassadors include Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Cindy Crawford, Emma Roberts, Karlie Kloss, Kate Beckinsale, Jennifer Lopez, Kaia Gerber, Lilly Collins, Demi Lovato, Ashley Graham, and Scarlet Johansson to name a few.

ZADIG & VOLTAIRE


Founded by Thierry Gillier, Zadig & Voltaire thrives in the in-between - not just for him or her, day or night, or work or leisure, the Parisian fashion house redefines modern femininity with wild, free, and rock-fueled wardrobe essentials that embody the strength and sensuality found in the rough and undone.

Through fashion-forward collections that include bold-printed jackets, punchy sweaters, and edgy tees, Zadig & Voltaire combines effortless, autonomous dressing with the energy and intellect of literary and art world icons, from 18th century writer Voltaire to musical muses Patti Smith, Marianne Faithfull, and Jane Birkin.

THEORY


Twenty years ago, a pair of pants changed the way American women dress. Recognizing the need for clothes that felt great and fit perfectly, Theory designers developed an innovative stretch fabric that would dramatically improve a pant’s performance. These pants had the power to make women feel confident, smart, and stylish. Never before had American sportswear been so easy to wear to work and everywhere else.

They truly believe cool, expertly tailored pieces made from the best materials have the power to change the way we all feel, improve the way we work, and inspire the way we live.

Theory has built the brand on the belief that every detail should be considered and close attention should always be paid to the technical elements that enhance how a garment fits and feels. Their commitment to design, fit, and construction ensures exceptional comfort and quality.

SMYTHE


The co-designers of Smythe, Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe like to describe their aesthetic as ‘modern and emotional’.

Since launching in 2004 with blazers and jackets, the pair have brought a unique sense of occasion to everyday wardrobe essentials and gained a cult-status following. Today their full ready-to-wear collections continue to be relevant, versatile and timeless.

AS98


Piero Oliosi and his sons are the owners of the A.S.98 brand and the soul of the renowned Italian company Olip. Olip has been successful since it started in the 1980s, and now employs over 1,200 people. The factory’s output of 6,000 shoes per day also makes it one of the most productive.

It’s not just the numbers that reflect the quality of this brand, rather the special design features and careful selection of materials that set new industry standards. A.S.98’s materials are all imported from Italy because only selected tanneries can produce the distinctive leather that is characteristic of the brand.

The technical skills of their dedicated employees produces shoes with real character – which is why they are one of Garbarini’s top designers.

CIRCOLO


The Italian textile industrialist, Gennaro Dargenio, has used his thirty years of experience and ongoing commitment to product development and innovation to create Circolo.

His goal has always been to transform historical cult items through the use of alternative materials.

Creativity, experience and innovation are the ingredients of this innovative, exceptional fashion project.

A style that embraces the nuances of its homeland and draws inspiration from its origins.
