We are using varying shades of Heather Grays and Olives with subtle accents of Cool Steel Blues and Burgundy Reds.
We took our inspiration from early American motorcycle racers of the 1920s and 1930s. The colors we chose were a reflection of the environment of that period and the people who defined the era.
The most important would be the Olive Drab color that we are using, which has a slight military feel to it. It appears in many different silhouettes and comprised with a few different textures, including double-faced wools, leather, shearling and treated cotton.
The shawl collar, three-quarter length wool overcoat with shearling trim. It's a bold statement piece that really stands up to our concept and elevates the entire collection.
Ernest Alexander is a brand rooted in true American style, but also a feeling of newness and accessibility. The Olives and Blues we are using in this collection are classic, normally failsafe colors; but I think we mixed them together in a way that seems new and interesting, yet still very wearable when taken off the runway.
