“No one ever looked at a photo of Jackie O or Audrey Hepburn and thought — what was she thinking wearing that outfit?” — Kristen, Founder, Senza Tempo
Senza Tempo, which means timeless in Italian, is an accessible luxury apparel line making timeless clothing for the modern woman. My grandmother taught me when it comes to clothing, to always buy the best you can afford so that it will last. Over the last ten years, my go-to brands steadily declined in quality, while higher end brands became increasingly expensive. As a Wall Street as a foreign exchange sales-trader, I could afford many of the higher end brands, but I realized there was an opportunity.
I launched Senza Tempo because I believed there needed to be a brand that made wardrobe essentials that were refined but not boring, that were well made and accessibly priced. The three silhouettes that anchor the collections are for the woman who knows exactly what best suits her personal style and shape.
I loved the clothing in the old movies I watched with my grandmother. The women always looked so polished and elegant. I never had the time shop for vintage clothing, which is more of a treasure hunt, but I’ve always love the styles. I try to incorporate a vintage approach to quality in construction and attention to the details. From our contrasting silk linings to lace finished hems and including pockets wherever possible — every piece features some detail to delight our clients.
Luxury quality without the markup.
European style tailoring and the finest fabrics characterize every Senza Tempo garment.
We always use silk linings, not only because they are luxurious, but practical. Silk is breathable and adjusts to your body temperature.
By selling direct to our clients, I am able offer American made, luxury quality garments without the luxury markup.
ELEGANT & FEMININE styles, NEVER GIRLY AND ALWAYS CHIC.
Southern women are known for classic and feminine style.
Working in Boston and New York City in finance for over a decade, my style became more urban and refined.
I wanted to create a brand that was feminine but not girly, and classic yet fashion forward and stylish.
