The faded lettering on the chalkboards of a Kung Fu studio’s walls, the artsy backdrop of a printmaker’s studio, and the timeworn bricks of Chinatown’s hidden nooks are the perfect backdrop for this season’s bold fashion that inspires us to be brave with our choices. So roughen the edges, mix your metals, intensify your hues, play with textures and layers and take risks.
