Current in Camo

Camouflage is getting a major update this season and we couldn’t be more happy about it. Gone are the days when wearing camo meant blending into the background. This summer, brands are reinventing the pattern with a softer touch; incorporating it into more understated and feminine pieces.

ZADIG & VOLTAIRE KAVY EMBROIDERED CAMO JACKET, PAM & GELA CAMO TRENCH COAT & CURRENT/ELLIOT FATIGUE JACKET

A camo jacket is an easy way to introduce the pattern into your existing wardrobe. With a basic white tee underneath, pair yours with blue, black or white denim on bottom. Sandals are perfect for a day out shopping, but your camo look can easily be dressed up for night by simply changing into booties. Keep the rest of your look simple and you’ll be surprised by how versatile your camo statement piece turns out to be!

Mod for Fall

Mod for Fall

It's so exciting to see how different designers revive and reinterpret trends, especially when things gets a little retro.  The 60's are making a bit of a comeback this season and many of our favorite designers have put their spin on all things Mod.  

It's easy to take this trend too far and land it costume territory, so it's important keep your accessories sleek and your silhouettes clean.  Although we all don't have legs for days and the perfect fringe like our dream girl Alexa Chung, she is a good source of inspiration when it comes to keeping the Mod trend modern.

Max Mara Weekend Vicolo Duffle Coat, M Missoni Greek Key Top, Frame Denim Le Paneled Suede Mini, Rag & Bone Floppy Brim Fedora and ADA braided Leather Belt

Designer to know: Weekend Max Mara

Designer to know: Weekend Max Mara

When one thinks of Max Mara, luxe wool, supple leather and rich fur probably come to mind. But Max Mara is much more than that. 

Launched in 1984, Weekend Max Mara is the off duty defusion line of Max Mara Collection. Originally designed as a casual and outdoor, weekend-ready collection it has since evolved into a well rounded, sporty yet sophisticated line complete with loads of color, prints and easy to wear and versatile silhouettes. It's filled with all the signature fabrics one finds in Collection, beautiful wool, leather, silk and down, but with a youthful twist.

We've pulled together a few of our favorite Pre-Fall pieces - we have a soft spot for their outerwear - that are available now.

If you've been reading the blog, you've probably noticed our love for Weekend.  Don't let the name fool you, these pieces will take you straight from the office, to date night or even a weekend at the coast.  It's an all inclusive collection filled with wardrobe staples that you won't tire of.
