Millstein melded her multi-cultural background, expertise in high fashion and experience as a design-driven New Yorker, to create a collection of luxurious staples that celebrate independence, intelligence and beauty. The collection is made in America, and integrates impeccable fabrics and detailing with superb fit, precise construction, and wearability.

Hellessy – New York Fashion Week – Fall 2016

Charlotte Rampling, the personification of 60s gamine, was the inspirational starting point for Sylvie Millstein’s relaxed, boyish direction for Fall 2016. Off the shoulder tops, blouses with exaggerated sleeves, tailored jumpsuits and shearling coats are riding the trends – but not without that charming, Hellessy twist.

Crack Smokin’ Vintage


Toronto Mayor Rob Ford addressed the media after admitting to smoking crack cocaine.  Rebena couldn’t help but notice the amazing tie Ford wore to the conference as it is covered in vintage NFL logos.  Complete with a Houston Oilers logo, outdated Buccaneers and Broncos logos.  We cannot stop thinking about Ford thumbing through his neckwear collection and somehow settling on his NFL novelty tie from 1995.  Good choice chap.  We hope you get well Rob Ford along with hoping to someday sift through your amazing neckwear collection.
