Inspired by the likes of awesome up-and-coming designers including Wes Gordon, Greg Chait of the Elder Statesman, Andrea Lieberman of A.L.C. and more, we grabbed a few favorites off the racks at our flagship store and took to the streets of Seattle to photograph them. Enjoy the results below, along with commentary by Sahar Sokhandan from our designer collections buying office:
A.L.C. “The ultimate downtown look, pairing our favorite striped tee back to the perfect fit-and-flare skirt in bordeaux leather.”
