Today was tough...its design crunch time right now at the office and I'm a little overwhelmed. On the other hand, I'm relieved because I'm starting to dive deeper and understand more clearly what we are doing for the next season. It's great how as you spend more and more time with the inspiration and concepts for the season to come, you become more familiar with them...its like your growing in your relationship with them. Every time you look at the images, fabrics, and colors, you notice something different or see something more relevant and trend right to what's current in the market....at least you hope too...I'm very thankful for confirmation. One of our main call outs for next season is this beautiful taupe story. The shades of taupe are grayed out and flare or pair with shades of mauve and sometimes shades of lavender or blue as in the images you see here. Enjoy and use it to influence your week to come...wardrobe, housewares, makeup....be creative!
