OLD - About Us
hello, we’re commando!
We want to make women look and feel fabulous. That’s why we combine luxury fabrics and flawless fits to create styles that are the foundations of a great wardrobe. And since fashion is always at the fore, it’s no wonder commando has become the favorite of celebrities, stylists, and smart, chic women everywhere.
With three sisters and a slew of close girlfriends, commando founder and designer Kerry O’Brien understands women and their undergarment garment woes. “The right underwear can do wonders for how a woman looks in her clothes,” she says. “When you have the right foundations, you feel that much more confident and beautiful.”
It was confidence and a leap of faith that led O’Brien to start commando in 2003, leaving her high-profile public relations position in Manhattan. “I didn’t look back,” says the entrepreneur. “Once I started commando, it was all about moving forward.” Now a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America and a patent-holding inventor, O’Brien is known for her innovative and fashion-conscious designs. “Commando is all about style,” says O’Brien. “From the bottom on up.”
Obsessive about fit and on a constant search for the most luxurious fabrics, O’Brien has high standards for her garments. “Every single thing commando makes is designed to make women love getting dressed,” she says. “I want them to smile when they slip on their commando.”
