"Hands want to see, eyes to caress," says the motto of this Italian sportswear company, known for its super-luxe cashmere. As spare and modern as a gallery space, the store seems designed to banish distractions and absorb customers in a restrained but sensual retail experience. Recessed lighting and satiny wood accents create a cool tranquility; hidden drawers conceal multiples of the clothing on careful display. Even the dressing rooms are undetectable behind black leather-paneled walls. There's plenty of cashmere to caress, in classic styles that verge on preppy: Chunky cable knit pullovers, ribbed v-necks and the label's perennial staple, the zip-front bomber. But Malo's inner verve emerges in more adventurous pieces, like swirling macramé cardigans strategically air-brushed with color. Liberal use of bright hues is a Malo hallmark, with raspberry, violet, and sea foam found even in the men's collection. Beyond the knitwear, pants and blazers are offered in cashmere blended with cotton or silk; silk and cotton shirts lighten up the spring selection, while suede and shearling round out fall.Malo accessories are crafted mainly from soft, color-saturated leather, often trimmed with braided velvet ribbon, an Andalusian style tradition that's become Malo's signature. Step lively, though, if you're interested in the shoes: The store only stocks a single pair in each size.

Sales

Malo’s sale of spring and summer merchandise begins in June and lasts until Labor Day. The fall collection goes on sale in December; markdowns last until January or February, when the new spring collection arrives.
