Spring 2023 Julia Farwell-Clay Collection

In planning this collection and looking over the Manos del Uruguay palette, one can't help but think of the kaleidoscope of sugar spun colors of the candy counter, the fun of choosing, and the dizzying joy of rainbow gobstoppers, pastel taffy chews, pink bubblegum and bright red shoestring licorice to cherish for what, an hour before they're devoured?

 

Nostalgic yet modern, this collection is designed with entertainment and wearability in mind: each piece brings a festive need-to-have layer for those in between spring and summer temperatures in shapes of the moment.

--

A classic lace-inflected cardigan with slightly boxy modern proportions, knit in lucious Alpaca Heather for a true year round sweater to layer over a summer evening sundress or under a winter wool blazer.

Please note that the lace patterns are charted.
