When Elie Sullivan first started working on Wall Street, the dress code was bow ties and navy suits – and she said no. Style was important and she wanted to look like herself. Elegant. Chic. Understated. Years later, she was searching for a post-work wardrobe and once again found her choices limited to frumpy, shapeless outfits or clothes made for models, not real women.
Her friends were equally frustrated and some had given up entirely. Even Susie Herlihy, Elie’s step-daughter and a fashion-lover, couldn’t find classic pieces with just enough twist to pair with jeans for a night out – nothing fit. There was clearly a void.
When Elie and Susie met Charles Warren, a classically trained designer, the three set out to create the solution. Together they launched 2662 New York with the mission to marry real women’s needs with a designer’s eye for detail.
Today, the label is a destination for reimagined classics, serving as a backdrop to highlight your own signature style.
