collection info and Launch Schedule

Summer Wholesale Launch: June 2019

Our Summer 19 collection patterns are named after adventurers and explorers. These are women we look up to, who our daughters look up to, and who we will teach our granddaughters to look up to. They are women who inspire us. We celebrate their legacy as we continue to break the mold.

The Summer 2019 collection features our newest color, Twilight, and Tar - a perennial favorite. Wear alone or layer to extend the season. Who doesn't want an endless summer?
