Designer Chelsea Claridge launched luxury outerwear brand Caalo

Canada-born designer Chelsea Claridge is making her mark in the outerwear market. To fill the need for fashion forward, Claridge sought to create her own line, Caalo. Caalo, a New York-based brand will offer ultra-cool coats that are transformable, trans-seasonal and non-gender specific.

Claridge spent 10 years in the industry as a designer, but was inspired to create Caalo after battling wet and frigid winters in New York and Canada while wearing bulky, sporty outerwear that felt unfashionable. Caalo’s first collection is for fall 2019, and offers shoppers minimalist, almost futuristic-looking coats that are backed by peak performance and sustainable production.
