“Summer gathered in the weather, the wind had the proper touch, the breathing of the world was long and warm and slow. You had only to rise, lean from your window, and know that this was the first real time of freedom and living; this was the first morning of summer.” – Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine
Throughout the spring and summer, the Alabama Chanin Collection has expanded with the launch of new pieces and the return of favorites from the archive. The rich blues and golds of nature in the summertime – reminiscent of cool water and warm sunshine – are prevalent throughout the Collection with the tones of blue in our Venetian, Glass, and Navy fabrics and our new Gilded pieces.
A favorite here at The Factory, The Scoop, was relaunched in new colors and updated details and the Waffle Cardigan has a new tie closure. Our new Figures treatment adorned many of our Collection pieces, like the Figures Bateau Top, the Amory Dress, the Lindsey Bomber, and the Zoe Skirt. The Alina Dress and Tunic also joined the Collection with their universally flattering style and three sleeve lengths.
The Leisure Collection also received summer-ready updates with the debut of the Waffle Towel, crafted from our lush, organic waffle fabric, and the color ways for staple pieces like the Organic Cotton Boyshorts, The Coverup, and The Tank expanded to include Venetian and Glass.
We have continued to nurture our relationship with Heath Ceramics this summer and expanded our partnership offerings with the Slim Heath Necklace and the Muir Flatware.
