A closer look at Summer 2012

So much trend-spotting, planning and observation spurred our new collection, we thought you might enjoy a backstage pass to our process. This week, we’ll be walking color by color through Summer 2012 with Liz on Location so you can see the full story behind each pattern and, who knows, maybe even find a new favorite!

(p.s. If you know us, by now, you know we love a great giveaway during launch … wink, wink.)
