Have you ever wondered where trends originate? Or why designers often have similar collections or looks? The answer is quite simple. Premium and Contemporary level labels receive a book of trends from a company whose exhaustive research of world culture (art, history, film, literature, music, etc.) provides themes, shapes and Pantone color palettes as inspiration. This ensures that designers are relevant to projected market demands. Lower end lines then copy the original designs by their high style counterparts and produce them with unethical labor and low quality fabrication. Clearly, we are advocates for shopping with conscience and investing in lasting styles with an original aesthetic. That said, you can still get designer looks on a budget. The following are a few examples of Premium designer styles with a similar look to our Contemporary labels, many offered within the exact same season.
