SAIL TO SABLE TAKES YOU FROM YOUR CLOSET TO TABLE

by Marisa Marcantonio

The notion of an outfit inspiring a room and vice versa is not a new one, as Domino Magazine oft used the concept to define on-trend moments. Sail To Sable,  a new company started by Darien-based Jennifer Stocker, the collection is made up of seashore-ready tunics, island-inspired pillows, and napkins and mats for summer idyls. The coordinating collection, whose name is inspired by the Eastern seaboard, from Maine to Florida, is fitting for casual coastal life. The collection debut has been met with raves, with trunk shows up and down the coast have provided the brand the chance to get a foothold in a market where polished classic basics are welcomed with open arms.

 A bold awning stripe and whimsical rick rack border add a playful touch to an all-white sofa.

A double border of navy stripes complements a thick lime and white stripe in the Lively Lime Tunic.

 Nautical Navy has classic seaside charm with a raised white circle border. The interplay is like a perfect navy blazer, it always looks right.

The reverse, Nantucket red version is perfect for Island living.

The napkins get a little playful with a Nantucket red fabric on the reverse.

From ship to shore, the Nautical Navy Tunic will keep you looking polished.
