Our passion for color goes beyond Indigo and Charleston Green. It’s about the characters,
the culture, and the experiences that inspire us to venture outside of the lines. Welcome to the place where we bring those stories to life. Welcome to The Margins.
Behind the Scenes of Spring 2018
Filled with breezy fabrics, soft textures, and deep indigo hues, our new collection is made for Springtime in the Lowcountry. To capture the casual elegance of the new line, we spent a morning at Drayton Hall, a storied antebellum plantation on the Ashley River.
Built in the mid 18th century, Drayton Hall has been carefully preserved yet never restored. It's the earliest example of Palladian architecture in the United States and stands as a "living witness" to the last couple centuries. It's also hauntingly beautiful.

"Historic preservation is a broad discipline, but at its heart is the idea that old buildings enrich our lives and deserve our good stewardship."

The quiet grandeur of the main house is matched by its surrounding grounds: tranquil, open, bright, and embedded with trees and plants both native and exotic. The early-English landscape presented an exceptional backdrop to the linen shirts and lightweight trousers and shorts that comprise a central focus of our Spring collection.

"Thanks to research conducted by scholars across disciplines, we can understand how Drayton Hall’s creators and inhabitants lived their lives and shaped the Atlantic World."
