Editor’s Top Trend Pick
Commune addresses a deeper appreciation of world cultures through artisan crafts. The Commune woman composes various ethnic references in a sophisticated manner that ultimately speaks to luxury. She travels the world for inspiration not only for aesthetic purposes, but to gain a greater understanding of global economies. Immersed in foreign cultures, she takes pride in meeting with local craftsman and fostering their crafts. When the Commune woman returns home she takes not only physical souvenirs with her, but stories of the people she has met along the journey. Her palette is earthy with punches of cherry and daffodil. An eclectic materials complement her style with exotic skins, jacquards and hand loomed knits. Intricate details continue this feeling with grommets, patent patchwork and embroidery & embellishments.
