For the staff of C&G Media Group, there's no such thing as "an average day on the job." Touring a client's newly-opened design studio is as commonplace as hosting a panel event for 200 design professionals. Whatever the occasion, finding a polished look to compliment a busy, design-filled day can create a challenge.
Fortunately, our friends at Halsbrook, the luxury online fashion retailer, have it all figured out.
Halsbrook's easy-to-navigate website entices shoppers with looks from top designers, including Elie Tahari, Oscar de la Renta and Max Mara, while offering thoughtful suggestions on "How to Wear" each piece. A microfiber St. James dress in navy and white stripe is styled with a structured trench, for example, adding function and a bit of comfort to an otherwise snug-fitting ensemble.

It's the thoughtfulness behind Halsbrook, inspired by CEO Halsey Schroeder, that sets this e-commerce experience apart.
“What we are offering is a high-quality curated collection, warm customer service and a shopping experience that is elegant,” Schroeder says. "The Halsbrook consumer grew up shopping in physical stores, so technology may not be as innate to what they do."
What does come naturally to Halsbrook's loyal followers is a sophisticated taste level that popular shopping sites like Net-a-Porter and Shopbop offer but bury under layers of trendy, of-the-moment looks that appeal to a young audience.
"Our styling point of view is one of sophisticated sensibility," says Schroeder, " with an emphasis on ease for the woman with a hundred to-dos to check off before her day is done. We believe wardrobing should enhance our lives, not be hard work."

Speaking of checking off to-dos, our C&G team recently found themselves gathered at the Schwartz Design Showroom located in the Stamford Waterside District for a busy day of planning, prep and design scouting. It was the perfect opportunity to heed the advice of Halsey Schroeder and try Halsbrook on for size.
We had already test-driven "Halsbrook On Approval", which allows shoppers to try on items at home before completing their purchase—any piece that doesn't fit or flatter as expected gets sent back (with free shipping) to Halsbrook; customers only keep what they absolutely love!
"I can imagine so many of my clients loving a service like "Halsbrook On Approval", says C&G Senior Account Manager Melissa Groher, who works with top interior designers. "As a decorator, aesthetics are everything. Having the ability to try on new clothes in your own home, surrounded by personal belongings, really makes a difference. It's a true luxury, and luxury is what defines Halsbrook."
