Before starting any collection we come up with a mood board for inspiration and clip and paste textures, colors and ideas we love from nature, the runways and every day life.
For 2017 we wanted to use beautiful pastels and color blocking, too. We chose light blue, burgundy, pale pink, grey, yellow, rust, teal and pops of our signature fuchsia. Be bold this Spring, have fun with gorgeous colors.
The new collection is made from mostly lightweight knits because they provide the stretch we wanted without incorporating synthetic fibers. We used a luxurious cotton/silk blend that is machine washable. Our entire SS17 collection is produced by two different manufacturers in Florence.
We created 6 key styles for spring and summer. We want you to look forward to weddings, days at the beach or your days in the office without having to worry about your outfit. Our dresses, one long, romantic and flowy and one of the cocktail variety are perfect for a celebration or a night out.
And you'l love our sleeveless easy dress for those casual lazy days. Just as essential, we have a few perfect tops. As I type, I'm wearing the inspiration for one of them. The classic T-shirt. But it's our very own knit take on it.
We also want you to have pieces that you can dress up or down. Our sleeveless burgundy and pink top lets you do just that. And finally, because we think this is everyone's favorite sleeve (well, at least ours), we'll offer a 3/4 sleeve top that's perfect all year round.
We're also introducing a baby blanket - made from the softest cotton/cashmere blend to keep your baby at just the right temperature. Or put another way, your baby will feel soooo cozy.
The photos in this post are just a sneak peak at our collection as a work in progress. The final collection will be available exclusively on our website coming at the end of March. And stay tuned for information about our upcoming trunk shows in NYC.
