While the 60's has been a popular expression for the past few seasons, we have never seen it appear so graphic with a strict monochromatic palette.  In keeping with traditional silhouettes of the favored era, boxy and shift shapes move forward and allow prints and patterns to take center stage.

Recent ethnic inspirations have included a nod to the Orient as well s Global Awakening, with a much more diverse pop culture influence.  Spice Trail keys into the exotic lands of Morocco and India with rich material conversations like jacquard to heavy embellished details.  Silhouettes speak to tradition with items like tunics and sarouel pants, while tribal patterns play up classics like tailored jackets.

Last season we saw Americana expressed in a vision of the West with Cowgirl and prairie elements. For Spring 2014, American Pie brightens up the message with a picnic friendly look inclusive of gingham and patchwork and youthful separates like overalls.

Most recently we've seen grunge apply to the women's market with a Soft Grunge approach, inclusive of pastel hues for an overall pretty appearance.  Spring 14 takes a decidedly Grown Up approach combining a melange of materials and items like maxis and peplum tops for a sophisticated sensibility.
