DARK VICTORIES makes black & gray look new for A/W 13-14 by drawing inspiration from an eclectic mix of iconic dark & historically classic trends: Gothic, Victorian, Edwardian & Art Deco styles. DARK VICTORIES remixes fabric, pattern, decoration & styles from each look in new & unanticipated combinations. This trend also offers a fashion alternative to this season’s black/gray story by presenting a palette of dusk to dawn nocturnal blues, focusing on the deep, dark, midnight shades.

PRECIOUS MEMORIES is a totally romantic vintage theme inspired by beguiling old fashion, turn of the last century’s Anglo-American styles.

PRECIOUS MEMORIES mixes vintage print/ pattern & trade union inspired graphics with distressed fabric for a dress-down, working class look for casual & jeans wear.
