The SS18 collection draws inspiration from the Alkire's trip to Verbier, Switzerland.
Courtesy of W Hotels and the CFDA the designers explored the Canton of Valais. They dined, toured a vineyard, and relaxed in between hiking, fishing, and cycling. They were also treated to a helicopter tour of the Alps - landing on Rosa Blanche (11K ft). They dried, pressed, and photographed flowers from different elevations, including Edelweiss, which appear in the custom prints. And, referencing the country's graphic elements the Alkires included bold stripes, transparent layered checks and botanical prints, color palette studies, modern lace treatments, and airy cottons into the collection.
