Albertus Swanepoel cloche hat
"This is one of my favorite hats. It's a cloche made in python skin. I like it because it's a casual shape done in a luxe fabric — and python showed up on several runway shows. I think it's the new 'It' print!"
Albertus Swanepoel, designer

"The lambswool and cashmere dress has a washed leather inlay at the shoulders, which adds a rugged feel to the soft, feminine silhouette. Spring is all about creating a head-turning look by pairing juxtaposing textures, and this dress does just that."
Katherine Zabloudil, designer

"This look has all my favorite elements about spring 2011 — the clean white color, the femininity of the lace, and the monochromatic pairing of a top and bottom."

"I love the colors of the antiqued glass, combined with the harder edges of the Pyrite and Quartz crystals. It will also feel soothing and cool against your skin in the warmer months."

"This tee's peekaboo cutouts remind me of a game of Hide and Seek. The loose fit flatters while the angles focus on what I think are the most interesting parts of the woman's body."

Fremont the Colette jacket
"The light trench is my favorite piece from the S/S 2011 collection. The trench's upper linen shell gives a look of structure with great breathability, while the bottom washed lambskin panel with gathered strap creates a unique shape. It is also a versatile piece, as the panel zips off, allowing you to wear a lighter blazer into summer."
Devin Carlson, designer

"You could never go wrong wearing this amazing dress to any sort of function. You could go low-key with a touch of grunge when you wear it with your favorite boots, or pimp it out with your killer heels."

"It's the mullet of trench coats: All business on the outside with a waxed coated cotton chic tomboy vibe, and all party on the inside with a breathable athletic mesh that's like, 'So what, yeah, I'm future but I also like basketball.'"

"We all get inspired by the sexy beauty of nature. We like to take some time out for ourselves. Often the sexiest things happen when you're most at ease. This ring was inspired by one such occasion, in the woods."

"I really love this piece because it's boxy but cropped and really flatters women of every size and shape. It's both functional and fashionable. The oilskin canvas jacket can be worn with rugged boots on a rainy, windy day or with skinny jeans and heels for a more chic take."

"Our idea was to take classic American fabrics like duck, oxford, chambray, and cordovan that we work with in our men's collection, and blend them with feminine touches and silhouettes using menswear tailoring. It is the mix of these two worlds that was our starting point for the collection."
Billy Reid, designer
