One sunny day last summer, we went out looking for inspiration deep in the California deserts. We scratched down a short punch-list, grabbed a bunch of cameras and mapped our pathway. We found that the gritty, honest aesthetic of Palm Springs was our creative canvas for our spring 2012 collection.
As we dug deep into the arid natural landscape, we discovered a hidden oasis where wildflowers bloomed alongside the weathered mountains and boulders. Pools of color in bold and soft tones popped against a backdrop of crumbling hotels, abandoned automobiles and rustic antique shops.
