Splendid is the culmination of Founder and Designer Moise Emquies' tireless search to find the softest fabric and most color absorbing yarns in the world in order to create the ultimate t-shirt. After an exhaustive ten-year search, he finally discovered the right combination: 50% supima cotton (a luxurious cotton that gives the fabric body) and 50% micro modal (a form of rayon that is super soft and deeply absorbs dyes).

It was then that Emquies finally decided on a name for his new t-shirt collection: Splendid. “I had finally found a way to create the perfect t-shirt, a t-shirt deserving of the name Splendid, the ultimate, the best,” explains Emquies, who also owns Ella Moss.

In 2002, a full t-shirt collection with nine basic bodies was launched and has since grown to become an extensive collection of not just t-shirts but tanks, thermals, dresses, shorts and more. Clean, simple and effortless best describe the aesthetic of the line, which can be seen in countless magazines, movies and television, and on some of the most famous women in the world including Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cameron Diaz, Kirsten Dunst, and Julia Roberts.

Each season, Emquies and his team are always striving to find the softest and most luxurious of fabrics to use in the creation of their pieces, to make sure that their “simple” basics are always super comfortable. Splendid offers a wide range of styles, starting with the classic styles in solid colors that is great for layering, to more fun and easy-to-wear dresses, skirts and jackets that come in a variety of colors and cute prints. These lovely pieces from Splendid have an amazing fit and you’d be sure to wear them over and over again.
