SIMPLE PICNIC
Casual looks fit for a summer picnic appear sweet and innocent and undoubtedly relaxed. Brilliant gingham checks and garden florals sit next to eyelet, linen, chambray and classic cotton poplin.

BOHO SPIRIT
Driven by the strong 70s sentiment, this traditional bohemian expression is realized with eclectic hippie mixes of print and pattern. Paisleys, botanical flowers and ethnic border prints play amongst gauze, silk, crochet and rich embellishment.

DESERT ADVENTURE
A desert expedition brings in a rugged and exotic feel with raw materials paired with animal skins. The natural feel is expressed through crinkle linen and dye techniques while prints come alive with snake, leopard, feather and reptile. Beading and fringe add extra flavor.

TROPICAL PUNCH
Tropical references are expressed in a bold and bright medley that puts prints and patterns at the forefront. Amazonian inspiration brings in lush jungle landscapes filler with tropical fruits. Hawaiian florals are essential and Polynesian tiki prints bring in an exotic flavor.
