Behind-the-scenes: Get a first look at Spring 2013

A few days ago, we held our first photo shoot for Spring 2013 in our studio featuring the gorgeous Anna V. The focus for this collection? “Pops of color, bold stripes and prints, and a fresh spin on color blocking with modern patchwork. Our favorite pieces are from ALC, IRO and Mason,” says Alexis Geotes, Divisional Merchandise Manager, Ready-to-wear.

Take a sneak peek into the shoot and check out our interview with Anna V.
