Winter Lotus Blossom lends an Eastern edge to Western heritage themes with traditional Japanese silhouettes and motifs. Sublime Settler elevates American prarie looks with a refined femininity as rustic looks become more sophisticated for an elegantly homespun feel.

Utility Chic

Utilitywear is given a style upgrade for Fall 2017-18 with a fashion-conscious sensibility that mixes uniform dressing with a lady-like aesthetic. Practicality is key but sleeker silhouettes, pared back detailing and subtle technical elements lend cargo looks a cleaner cut appeal.

Winter Lotus Blossom

East meets west for Fall 2017-18 as interior inspired prints and Japanese elements create a cross-cultural print fusion. Rich jacquards, satins and silks lend a new luxury to footwear fabrications and flowing wrap coats while trims and jewelry adopt an heirloom aesthetic.

Sublime Settler

Fall themes combine a pioneering sprit with feminine elegance. Warm neutral tones and subtly rustic textures evoke the winter prairie while demure cape silhouettes homespun in soft yarns and vachetta leather accessories offer a highly refined take on rancher style.
