arts and science & universal utility

Lately the only kinds of clothes I have wanted to wear are loose fitting - I think depending on the fabric, draping, and styling, loose clothing can be so much more flattering than more fitted styles. Over the past few weeks I can't stop going back and looking at two different companies - first Arts & Science, a Japanese company. So far I've seen their items for sale at both Creatures of Comfort and Worthwhile, and they have a website as well, but no online shop.

Then the other day I stumbled upon a British company called Universal Utility - though I can't find anything about them anywhere online. The only reason I found them was through the shop Envoy of Belfast in Northern Ireland. (This shop also carries many other great lines- and their shipping is so fast - I'll give you one chance to guess what sale item I ordered!) I love the light weight linen and effortless look to both brands - easy transition pieces from season to season.
