Smoking out trends; we catch the look!

  • Study British, French, and Italian Magazines.

  • Hunt through dormant wardrobe items and try-out new combinations.

  • Men’s trousers can easily be “nipped in” at the back of the waist to fit women.

  • Borrow ideas from store displays.

  • Light tortoiseshell eyeglasses will frame your summer whites and linens.

  • Most importantly: keep a steady eye on the FABRICS featured in new collections.
