On this day, one of the coldest of the year so far, the wind chill is eight degrees below zero. What a good day to sit inside and dream about a new spring wardrobe. This is the spring preview from Madewell. The collection is the first for new Madewell designer Somsack Sikhounmuong. The idea behind the collection is unpacking your suitcase after a trip around the world. What sorts of prints and fabrics and accessories would you come home with after days spent in Japan, Morocco or Mexico? Think of the special pieces you pick up along your travels that would mix in with your favorite jeans and tees. I really like the idea behind the collection and I think that translates into liking the actual collection. I could definitely see myself in some of these pieces.
