Fall Forecast: Our Calmé Collection Goes DeeperAugust 10 2018
We first launched our sustainable and chic collection called Calmé last year, and the response has been overwhelming for this line of understated classics that features organic fibers and low-impact dyes. Fabrics like cotton/bamboo blends, Tencel (an eco-fabric made from trees) and linen were all the rage for summer and we’re getting a little sturdier for fall with a textured cotton gauze. “Gauze is one of my favorite fabrics to wear because it has such a soft hand and I love the deep jewel-tones for fall,” says EVP of Retail, Catherine Nation, of our eggplant-hued kimono jacket and wide-leg trousers. “Aside from this line being organic and sustainable, these quiet colors are the perfect compliment to our bolder pieces from other collections.” The beauty of Calmé is truly in the thoughtful detailing. “I love the pom poms on the Belted Facing Tier dress, as well as the mid-length sleeve, which feels fresh and new,” says Senior Designer Lola Wydler of her favorite piece for fall. “And we design everything to be true staples in every woman’s closet.” Silhouettes are always relaxed, there’s layering pieces crafted out of a beyond-soft bamboo jersey, and our goal of creating conscientious pieces that still speak our love of bold colors and a laidback luxe are always front and center.
Here’s some style inspirations from our latest catalog.
Wearing it: Head-to-toe single color dressing is a foolproof way to always look put together and chic. Keep accessories to a minimum and within the same color family.
Wearing it: Crafting our tees from a super soft bamboo cotton makes them the perfect layering piece under cozy separates.
Wearing It: Every closet needs a jogger, they are the only piece in our closet that can go from yoga to brunch (literally). These are soft and hold their shape as well.
