Over in Neutrals & Core, we see indigo evolve with a dark blue-black tone, bringing a newfound depth to collections. Appealingly sophisticated, apparel and accessories alike express a formal refinement. Highlights include tailored woollen outerwear and glossy full-grain leather clutches.


Tricolour Blue

Finally, in the Accents & Active colour sector, a patriotic shade of blue is revisitedwith a contemporary edge for winter. Styles make a statement with a bold, fresh tone, lending a sportive dimension to casual jersey sweats. A play on texture adds interest, as seen with material mix utility bags and fuzzy casual two-pieces.
