Keying off Mother Nature's bountiful design inspirations, the Wind & Wave Collection reflects an organic feel, as the colors move from purely warm earth tones to the cool and inviting colors of water. Motifs shift from the more inert natural influences to those more visually stimulating, like birds, sea creatures and sea botanicals.

Familiar and sentimental motifs are revisited, but are enlivened by clean, clear colorations. White represents purity and becomes the backdrop for all designs, and round and oval shapes are included. Sensory elements are essential and it is all about being "soft," with cotton trellis looks, wispy solid shags and fresh florals in handgun and print overtuft constructions.
Bright, colorful and intentionally shocking characterizes the 1980s Memphis Collection styling.
