When High Fashion Comes to Charlotte
Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin, the duo behind Tome, met while studying fashion design in Sydney, and launched their label—which is filled with the kind of subtly sophisticated basics that elevate any outfit—in New York City in 2011. But until this year, the pair had never explored the American South. On a recent trip to Charlotte, North Carolina, in between setting up for a trunk show at Capitol, Lobo and Martin fell in love with the food, the fashion, and of course, the Southern hospitality. They also documented their trip for Condé Nast Traveler.
