What they said: A cave – mysterious and dark from the outside, once you enter, there is always an element of surprise. With the silhouettes and cuts for Autumn/Winter 2012, there is definitely more than meets the eye.
What we say: We admit it. Prints can sometimes scare us. But we’re thrilled with Ann Yee’s subtle “cave print” that anchors this collection. The color palette of slate, concrete blue and dusty purple in both the print and throughout the collection beckon us away from the standard black wardrobe. Her chunky knit sweaters and gauzy skirts and dresses balance each other perfectly and the asymmetrical hems add visual interest and intrigue. These are pieces you’ll want now and will continue to love for the long term.
