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

Blue Note hues are the overarching colors for the season. Moody Blue, Blue Note, Cobalt, Slate, and Midnight are paired with Copper, Stone Grey, Midnight Noir and Deep Oxblood.

What inspired your choice of colors?

I was inspired by the musical recordings of the Blue Note Jazz record label and photographs by Francis Wolff along with the graphic design of Reid Miles.

What is the most important color in your collection for Fall 2016 and why?

All shades of blue are equally important to create the moody tone of the AW'16 season.

What is the must-have item for Fall 2016 and what color(s) is it?

The must have item of the season is the merino wool turtleneck, which should be worn under a suit. We are offering it in Blue Note, Oxblood and Stone Grey.

What color are you now attracted to that you would not have used in the past? What have you changed your mind about that color?

Midnight Noir; I tend to stay away from lots of Black in the collection, because I love color. This season it felt right because of how I used it with graphic houndstooth and large scale patterns in formalwear.
