What colors and color combinations will be most prominent in your Fall 2016 collection?

Tone on tone mixing and the addition of an accent color to neutrals will play heavily in the Fall 16 collection. Coconut Milk mixed with Pure Cashmere in textural geometric jacquards or shades of Ivory and Coconut Milk for tone on tone play. Sepia Rose blended with Pure Cashmere for a feminine, muted color combination. Playing with warm and cool tones - Granada Sky, Volcanic Glass and Pure Cashmere.

What inspired your choice of colors?

The collection explores our connection with nature and how our existence can be broken down into simple mathematics. The color palette was inspired from natural shell formations, weather patterns viewed from space and the human body.
