Encompassing the bold, assertive and resolute woman that it drapes, the SERPICO collection is a very modern clothing line that is both intelligent and well-made. SERPICO is inspired by the linear quality and spatial integrity of modern and classical architecture as well as modern art and film. Transcendent of time and boundlessly continental, the collection embraces the able, artful and astute contemporary woman. The use of fine fabrics and the influence of travels abroad create a line of continuously intricate textures and sculptural silhouettes. SERPICO was created by Melissa Serpico Kamhout after graduating from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The label debuted in the Fall of 2007. In November 2008, the first SERPICO boutique opened in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. With the design studio attached, experimental and one-of-a-kind pieces are available along with the current SERPICO collection and special edition pieces made only for the boutique.
