COLLECTION: AN EVOLUTION

Our Collection evolution continues today with the introduction of new styles, embroideries, and colors. These updates tie together the work Natalie and our design team have created earlier in 2018 with what’s to come. We have quite a few updates to share and present them below in an easy-to-follow outline.

NATALIE’S DRESS, TUNIC, AND PULLOVER

Natalie and our team have created a color block organic cotton rib and jersey dress as part of our Core styles. The turtleneck tunic is a solid version of the dress and both feature pockets (something we can’t live without). Visit the Journal next Tuesday to learn more about the inspiration behind this new style—one of Natalie’s favorite dresses.

Also with pockets, Natalie’s Pullover is by far a favorite in the studio. The pullover top has a funnel neck, exaggerated long sleeves, draping sides, and a comfortable and cozy fit. It makes a great layering piece as we head into the cooler seasons.

EASY TOPS

Our new series of Core tops embodies effortless style. Made from lightweight jersey, The Easy ScoopThe Easy Turtleneck, and The Easy Turtleneck Tunic share certain features like elbow-length sleeves and a loose and flattering fit. The tops can be tucked in or worn out, and the tunic offers at alternative length if you are looking for more coverage.

PANSY VINE + SWANS ISLAND

The latest embroidery in the Collection is a delicate variation of the floral stencil we showcased this spring and summer. Designed with a moving vine throughout, smaller flowers sprout then spread into a fuller arrangement of appliquéd pansies for a beautiful 3D effect that adds depth and dimension. With this embroidery, we incorporate soft, merino yarns from Swans Island Company —our most recent collaboration partner with whom we developed the Dayton Scarf and Union Wrap. Swans Island creates home textiles and accessories from their headquarters on the coast of Maine. Their artisans use certified organic merino wool and locally sourced fine wools from family-run New England farms. We’ll share more about Swans Island in the coming weeks on the Journal.

    I love the new embroidery! Have you used the wool on the clothing or just the scarves? The new core pieces are great as well!
