One of the more upscale American Eagle brands, Martin + Osa, is named for real life explorers Martin and Osa Johnson. The couple from Kansas pioneered the safari in the early 1900’s and produced many books and films about their adventures, documenting the wilderness, wildlife, and tribal customs of remote Africa and the South Pacific. The brand Martin & Osa has come a long way from the wilds of Africa, and is now a great place to find luxurious basics and sophisticated accessories.
Martin + Osa put a twist on the basics with stylish cuts and refined fabrics. There’s no reason your everyday wardrobe can’t be a little special. I’m into silk, flannel, and velvet for winter this year.
The selection of shoes and boots is always amazing, with the softest leather in the most current colors. Martin & Osa carries Dolce Vita, which is one of my absolute favorite brands for boots.
Martin + Osa’s fantastic line of leather extends to the handbags and clutches. Their accessories usually has a great mix of tough chains, metallic accents, and feminine details. It’s also a great place to find really nice leather belts.
Martin + Osa is also a great place to find more sophisticated pieces when you are transitioning from your college wardrobe of sweats and t-shirts to a more professional look. The cuts are very work appropriate, but still fun and special. I found a navy pleated sheath dress from Martin + Osa a couple years ago that has been my go to outfit for anything ever since. Happy hunting!
