What ideas kicked off this collection?
We were really influenced by modern art, specifically the work of abstract painter Hans Hofmann. I just love the intense vibrant color in his paintings and how that translates into the clothes.
The season’s ultimate fresher-upper?
The classic button-down shirt in amazing new fabrics, textures and patterns. Every woman should have a few in her closet.
OK, what’s on your must-buy list?
Our studded Natalie sweater. It’s so simple but so elevated at the same time.
