The summer collection titled ‘The Long Shadows’ is an extension of Spring, taking it influences from the desert formations of the Southwest. The inspiration follows the strong contrast in the shadows of the sand dunes and the beautiful lines in the formation of the rock outcroppings. The vibrant colors are found from the vegetation that manages to survive in the harsh conditions.
The summer ‘13 collection features contrasting colors of desert tans with strong black accents. The mint green used throughout the line is a nod to the succulent vegetation found thought the desert landscape. Lastly the indigo dyed prints present an elusive mirage seen from afar. The silhouettes consist of the Anorak jacket with matching Climbing shorts in a bonded nylon, light cotton terry fleeces, cotton jerseys and natural dyed indigo shirts and shorts.
