Prominent Colors

This season we liked the softening of colors and the transition of cool Pinks as in classic Fuchsia Pink (PANTONE 15-2718) into a symphony of Lilacs such as Lilac Chiffon (PANTONE 15-2913), or cooler tones such as Sheer Lilac (PANTONE 16-3617) and Pastel Lilac (PANTONE 14-3812), as well as Violets such as Violet (PANTONE 16-3320), Lavender (PANTONE 15-3817) and Violet Tulle (PANTONE 16-3416). This intriguing palette of Violets and Lilacs looks particularly surprising and modern when accented with our favorite fiery Poppy Red (PANTONE 17-1664). Easter Egg (PANTONE 16-3925) and deep Periwinkle Blue continue this moody dusk to dawn palette into the Blue family. When contrasted with Black and White, the palette takes a graphic turn in illustrated floral prints or embroideries.



The spectacular August sunsets over the Hudson river; the Black and White reality of the city is engulfed by the all-powerful drama of nature. Pink and Violet clouds on the New York West Side sky are just as magical of a backdrop as any distant, exotic island paradise.

How do you use color to impart an emotion?

We choose a color based on its ability to move you, to sway you; a star color for the season has to feel new and a little subversive to the status quo.



Our interns took over the blog for July Fourth! These beautiful and talented women had a blast posing in red white and blue around the city!

Holiday 14


Goddess_Dress_01 The Goddess Dress is a one of a kind piece in our Holiday 14 Collection. The beaded embroidery is paired with geometric cut-outs, giving the dress a little sass-while still keeping it PG for dinner with Grandma.
