Morgan Stewart is the fashion It-Girl of my dreams. This golden-haired celebrity influencer embodies effortless chic. Whether she’s wearing an adorable two-piece set in St. Tropez or her classic outfit consisting of jeans and ballet flats, she seamlessly elevates everyday basics with subtle nods to today’s current trends.
So when I heard she was launching a ready-to-wear line, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Morgan’s brand-new line, Renggli Studio, is direct-to-consumer and just launched this past Tuesday, Sept. 12th, on rengglistudio.com. The drop was set for noon C.S.T., and I was ready to click and buy as fast as I could… however, that didn’t quite go as planned.
Although there has been an influx of celebrity brands throughout the last decade, I believe Morgan is truly the perfect person to start a curated clothing line. For those of you who don’t know Morgan, she started off her career by starring in the television show “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” and then transitioned to her own segment on E! News Channel called “Daily Pop” which ran for six seasons. Throughout the filming of the show, viewers got to see Morgan’s personal style develop and blossom. She is known for her simple yet sophisticated, usually monochrome looks that always leave her looking polished and professional. Her typical show uniform for “Daily Pop” seemed to consist of a slim-fitted sweater and trousers paired with some fun heels. With that in mind, it seemed so authentic for Morgan’s line to consist of her go-to wardrobe essentials.
The first drop included a work shacket, work pant, high neck tank, tee, and crewneck sweater all available in four shades including butter yellow, chocolate brown, black and white. I truly love the item and color selections as all of the pieces are so easy to mix and match to create multidimensional looks. All of the items are priced under $300, which seems fair considering Morgan is typically seen sporting the highest of high end designers on the daily, like The Row and Bottega. Morgan revealed that the denim in her new line is made in the same factory as Khaite, a high-end, ready-to-wear women’s line that has taken over the closets of our favorite chic influencers. Her sweaters are composed of silk and cashmere, alluding to a luxe feel. In 2023, consumers are more concerned about quality and want pieces that will hold up beyond one season. I find Morgan’s line to be a really good deal for the quality and its pricing gives a broader audience access to these great pieces.
This past Tuesday, I had my laptop open and ready for the noon release, eager to add some of Morgan’s neutral essentials into my fall wardrobe. Within seconds of refreshing my screen after the brand launched, all the products were selling out rapidly. I was quickly adding the pieces I loved into my cart and when I would go to check out, the items had vanished. I was panicked, annoyed, and confused.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who left empty-handed, as the website currently shows all work pants to be completely sold out and the remaining items have incredibly limited sizes left.
So maybe you didn’t get the Morgan Stewart designed pieces of your dreams this time, but I know I’m definitely ready for her restock and future drops. In the meantime, a few brands you can shop right now for a similar vibe include Toteme, Eterne and The Frankie Shop (sorry Morgan).
