January 6, 2014


With a deep freeze across the U.S., a resort getaway seems like a dream and the perfect break from the cold winter temperatures and the city chaos.

Leave it to our alliterating fashion director Ken Downing to guide us through the warm-weather trends that translate from Fall to Resort season, as well as the new musts on proportion, color, and the plethora of prints and patterns that are taking over NM.

“It’s perfectly clear that the Resort 2013 – 2014 collections are particularly passionate about looking pretty for the coming season! I am confident you will be as pleased with the season ahead as am I,” says Ken.
