Chocolate Brown August 20, 2010

Filed under: design — Deb Johns @ 3:00 pm

For most of us, chocolate is the ultimate treat…Irresistible, indulgent, and rarefied. From this enticing realm, Scout features the “chocolate” range for Fall/Winter. We have detailed these directional bags with vibrant striped webbing that coordinates with its striped interior. Fall Fashion is embedded with shades of browns and camels so our chocolate bag is the ideal accessory for all of your seasonal looks.

Some of our favorite places for chocolate are pictured below.

Jewel of the ‘Gyle August 19, 2010

Filed under: design — Deb Johns @ 11:51 am

British influence is more important than ever. In the 70s and 80s, when the King’s Road in London was uber trend driven, the British invasion influenced American fashion in a big way. For Fall/Winter, we’re seeing updated versions of argyle and argyle plaids as well as other nods to the Brits. Keep an eye out for Union Jack flag impressions in traditional to re-colored looks, reworked “Burberry” stripings and diagonal plaids as well as crowns and crests. The Scout argyle is vibrant and contemporary and works with denim to head-to-toe color for Fall/Winter.

Inspired by ancient madder, tapestries, and brocades, the paisley is at once exotic and romantic. Colorful, organic, and embellished, paisleys are suitable for all ages and all seasons. The Fall/Winter Elvis Paisley has a rich chocolate brown punctuated by pinks, oranges, and touches of lilac. The paisley is designed to coordinate with our solid chocolate bags as well as with the Graceline stripe.

Tartans August 12, 2010

Filed under: design — Deb Johns @ 12:21 pm

Always in style, tartans are back in a big way for Fall/Winter. Colored in collegiate brights to re-colored in high neon, the tartan works with day into evening looks for all ages. Think about reworking tartans in exaggerated to micro-scales and in patchwork to puzzle configurations. Other accents for this varsity look include crests, varsity letters,  contrast welting and striping, exaggerated lapelles , double breasted closures, and oversized mufflers with fringe. Check out the Scout version of tartan in electric cool to hot bright color ways, which look contemporary and refreshingly right for the season.
