We return to structure, warmth, family and hibernation. We return to old friends and long trails. To misty open fields and placid lakes. We return to long dinners, rainy mornings and wish we could stay longer. But for now, in this moment, we return home.
My Fall/Winter collection reflects on the past to create a nostalgic present feel. Working with loose woven wools, double knit jerseys and ribbed cottons, I pay homage to the chilly, wet, vibrantly green Northwest, and my childhood there. From caped dresses and thick low-slung skirts, to asymmetric hems and rustic ponchos, I took the pieces we used to wear as earnest girls and fitted them for the strong, effortless women we've become.
