Audioslideshow Booklet #286
MicaBooklet #286 Mica™ marks the debut of a crisp new spring yarn, Mica™. This new offering is a shimmery cousin to Seduce®, a blend of plant based fibers cotton and linen and slinky silk, with aMica touch of nylon for strength. It is perfect for mid-season wear and the subdued shine will lend polish to any summer evening ensemble. Mica is available in a carefully chosen palette of demure neutrals and saturated but sophisticated urban brights.

All the garments in Booklet #286 make the transition from winter to warmer temperatures painless with a focus on layering pieces such as the Steinhardt bolero jacket and Barnard, a richly textured, curve-hugging cardigan. For those of you who are already enjoying sunshine on your shoulders, whip up a Silver tank and a Gallatin bag and hit the beaches.

Audio SlideshowBe sure to watch the audio slideshow for alternate views seen nowhere else and to hear our thoughts on the design process, photo shoots and garment details. Next week we will explore Flower Child, the gorgeous first story of hotly anticipated Norah Gaughan vol.4.
