LATE SPRING 2015
Western & English Today
Iconic, time-tested Western mainstays such as fringe, Aztec-inspired
designs, sarapes, exotic skins, precious stones, and distressed and
handtooled leathers get a modern makeover for Fall 2015.
y, my, how things have changed in a year: The retro-nostalgia look has
evolved into effortless, timeless appeal. The new collections celebrate
both earth-toned palettes and natural fibers — with an emphasis on soft, supple,
antiqued finishes on both leather jackets and boots, 100 percent cottons in classic
plaids and prints, and luscious Navajo- and Aztec-inspired patterned knits.
Jewelry takes the same tack, with renewed emphasis on the hand-hewn appeal
of hammered metals. Look for rich coppers to take their rightful place alongside
sterling silver and gold. Oh, and have you noticed? Brown is the new black!
