We couldn’t be bigger fans of Search and State. From its inception we were drawn to the ultra minimalism, modern branding, the clean black and on trend neutrals. Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait too long till we could wear it too. It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of the Search and State women’s collection! A line as beautifully executed as it is well appointed, we know that Search and State will rapidly become a staple in many a cyclists closet.
We love that Search and State is made here in New York’s garment district. The result is a an exceedingly high quality garment, with beautifully stitched seams and perfectly set in zippers. You're not likely to find a thread out of place anywhere on the garment. With its minimalist style and quality construction, each garment feels like an investment that will last you for seasons to come.
The jersey is made from a high quality wicking fabric. The texture of the fabric gives the garment a fair amount of body. The jersey is slim fitting, but not tight, and it provides for a full range of motion. It's an excellent choice for anyone looking for something that doesn’t fit like second skin. The arm warmers add a great amount of versatility to the collection, and are a perfect fit for petite to average sized women who are tired of arm warmers bunching up around their wrists.
The jacket is by far our favorite piece. It has a fantastic silhouette, neat and trim to the body. It is a must have piece for any cyclists wardrobe. The zippers feel solid, and its wind and water resistant without being too noisy. It's true to size and can accommodate a heavier base layer during chillier weather. We are all New Yorkers so of course we loved the black, but the white (closer to bone or an ultra light beige) is the real stand out. It's clean, the color is fresh, and it coordinates perfectly as a light neutral.
Search and State is a breath of fresh air in a market still dominated by the ‘shrink it and pink it’ formula of marketing sports gear to women. It's the anti floral. It's cool and clean, a solid investment for season after season of use. We truly look forward to future offering from the brand. We hope bibs are next! The line is currently sold in select stores and can be purchased at Search and State.
