THE SPRING STORY Photographed by Dave Alexander Written by Hannah Donovan

    For spring, we found inspiration in Miami. The Magic City.
    A coastal place with its sweeping azure Biscayne Bay and glamorous Miami
    Beach where the great and the good pass time. Where a tropical climate
    sets the buildings of downtown ablaze with flaming sunsets. Miami is a city
    that knows how to have fun. Its reputation for throwing a good party pre-
    cedes it; glamour is embraced – especially in South Beach. It’s here, in Art
    Deco buildings, distinctive in their faded grandeur, neon lit after dark, that
    people carouse.
    Miami’s defined by its diverse cultures. Little Havana with its vibrant street
    life, festivals, cigar shops and many cafes. Where, shaded under the trees
    in Maximo Gomez Park, people play dominoes.

    The city’s influence is everywhere in the new collection: in the colours, cuts
    and designs of dresses, jumpsuits and separates. We pay homage to the
    city’s nightlife with classic mini dresses and modern maxis. Drapes and
    pleats in the fabric reflect the curvature of the Art Deco buildings and pastel
    colours are borrowed from their walls. Warmer, dusty shades and are in-
    spired by Miami’s Cuban and Spanish culture.
    As always, everything is viewed through a clean-lined lens
    and crafted with a devotion to the contemporary.
