Fall 2013 Collection
Drawn to photographs of child laborers, with their oversized wool jackets and tattered looks, we gathered inspiration from the Industrial Revolution’s working class. Our designs clean up and modernize the image of the blue-collar factory worker, lending a menswear twist to the modern woman’s style. To give the collection an industrial edge laced with the rustic charm of the period, we selected warm wools, lightweight chambrays, soft silks, and airy cotton voiles.
