Joseph Tano and Victor Rousso founded Santa Fe Apparel, an affiliate of Rousso Apparel Group, in 1995. The company was formed to create a young women’s outerwear collection on the cutting edge of the fashion industry. Through the years, Santa Fe has become known in the industry for designing and manufacturing quality garments for the trend-savvy consumer. The company prides itself not only on its dedication to creating and providing the industry with the latest trends, but making these trends available at an affordable price to a wide array of consumers.
In 1998, Santa Fe Apparel created the CoffeeShop label - an energetic and fashion-forward line for the junior customer. The jackets, coats and sportswear that make up CoffeeShop are crafted from quality textiles and consistently bring new trends and styles to the junior market. CoffeeShop is carried in major department stores, chain stores and in over 200 specialty boutiques. The CoffeeShop team is dedicated to providing a forward take on outerwear while remaining wearable, and always considers our customer's price point. Our attention to detail, with a goal to enhance our wearer's personal style, always results in a well-rounded collection.
The Mo-Ka customer is looking for a quality garment with a sophisticated edge - That's why this missy/contemporary brand focuses on the details. The designers behind Mo-Ka strive to create wearable silhouettes with a twist, allowing the brand to achieve a look that is timeless and will tie together any outfit. We understand that superior fit, quality and style are the keys to a long-lasting wardrobe staple, and we know our customer will reach for her Mo-Ka jacket season after season!
The LatteBLACK label was launched as a result of our CoffeeShop customer growing up and developing a more sophisticated sense of style. Our team knew we needed to create a fresh line with more advanced, fashion-forward styles that had the ability to grow with her. The label is perfect for the contemporary customer looking for a high-quality garment and a unique look. LatteBLACK focuses on using the latest fabrications and silhouettes that emphasize European styling, creating a line of true outerwear pieces that make a statement. Our goal is to create a tightly-edited collection of solid coats and jackets that will quickly become a favorite accessory. The LatteBlack label can be found on contemporary and outerwear floors of department stores and specialty boutiques across the United States and Canada.
One of Santa Fe Apparel's newest lines, Java, is a missy and plus size outerwear brand. Java focuses on fit and comfort, using the same high-quality fabrications and details that Santa Fe Apparel is known for. Java is the perfect combination of fashion and function - A true wardrobe staple.
In 2007, Santa Fe Apparel welcomed their smallest (literally) edition yet: CoffeeShop Kids. The brand is structured to follow style-wise in its "older sister's" footsteps - CoffeeShop. CoffeeShop Kids is a fun and vivacious line of outerwear with many styles taken from CoffeeShop itself, and "shrunken" into children's sizes. This dynamic brand full of fashionable and easy to wear styles can be found in department stores across the United States. At Santa Fe Apparel we are focused on creating a product that is both functional and durable for every child's lifestyle!
Grind by Coffeeshop is the young men's counterpart to its sister brand, CoffeeShop. The line is focused on using a European design aesthetic combined with the outlook of - What would the young man from Maine to California really want to wear? Grind was launched in 2007 and has been expanding since. Santa Fe Apparel's mission for the brand is to make sure our customer can find a coat for any occasion in Grind. Using the same standards for construction and styling as CoffeeShop, we consistently stay on top of the latest fabrications, keeping the collection well-rounded and "outside the box." Grind by Coffeeshop can be found online, in department stores and in specialty boutiques across the United States and Canada.
To further tend to the company's mission of producing fashion-forward outerwear for all consumers, Santa Fe Apparel launched CoffeeShop Red. This junior crossover label is filled with trendy coats and jackets for the price conscious consumer. While CoffeeShop Red garments are still made with the quality fabrications, the styles are tweaked to properly fit into designated price points. CoffeeShop Red can be found nationwide in department stores, as well as e-commerce websites.
