What am I am looking for at market? What do all of yous want to be wearing? My radar is set on the below trends.
BLUE: This season blue is neither somber or sad- in fact it's the most dominant color for spring. It's vivid & it's soft and......it's everywhere. Blue lends sophistication while allowing us to "play" with color. It's OK to play with your fashion - I love that.
Peter Som Spring 2010
Mapel's Newest Blue Treats:
PRINTS: Make a statement of yourself (not a fool) this spring with prints. Go vivid & get intense- but be sure to pair with neutral shoes or subtle accessories or a solid layering. Designers have taken their initial inspriation from nature then digitally remastered their artwork into innovative and statement prints.

Mapel's Spring Printed Assortment:
Flowy Neutrals: I think this trend will be more dominant in the fall- but we see a hint of it in spring/summer fashion. Inspiriation is in lightweight fabrics that are drapy and flowy. They smooth over curves and move with ease. Colors are neutral soft palettes that evoke a calming yet collected appearance.
Michael Kors Spring 2010
Fendi Spring 2010
Mapel's Neutral Offerings:
Eclectic Nomad: Similiar to military chic this look is very random and described within a variety of styles. Eclectic Nomad pulls inspiration from safari, traveling, ethnic and a little military chic. It's casual and unstructured with muted dirty tones and Sexy. Yes- sexy. That gritty and dirty sort of sexy.
