Jazz, soul and blues. Young French Quarter musicians playing on Bourbon Street, New Orleans – town that captures a perfect mix of Old World France and Cajun cultures – inspire a collection where today’s city slicker taps into the casual wardrobe of metro arty types.
Urban clothing pursues a slouch-chic path, styles find new forms of expression, linings serve a decorative purpose on layered jackets with an Afro flair in the micro prints. Double dyes and intarsia patterns define knits clearly making for the latest in cool easy outdoor wear.
Geometric stripes take turns with fine folk prints to underscore New Orleans’ magnetic and contradictory allure. Micro jacquard, habutay silk, cotton in combo with linen or silk come in a gorgeous palette of red, orange, blue and beige.
