It’s the first day of spring, and what better way to celebrate than wearing bright spring colors?! Pink is synonymous with spring, and we have a fabulous new style and pink wash this season, the Grace skinny in Dazzling. It’s a cropped fit, perfect for casual spring and summer outfits, or you can even dress it up with a great pair of heels. The “dazzling” shade was inspired by several tones of pink – from hot pink to a more salmon-y pink – take a look below at some of our photo inspirations for the new color.

This beautiful watercolor by Georgia O’Keeffe has provided much inspiration for our Spring 2013 line. We love the muted yet rich colors O’Keeffe uses to capture a wonderful snapshot of nature. According to Barbara Lynes, this painting (above) was inspired by the artist’s early visits to York Beach, Maine in the 1920s. Her work is borderline abstract and many of her paintings remind us of the satellite imagery –O’ Keeffe’s paintings and satellite imagery are both looking at nature in abstract,expressing beauty in shape, pattern and color… just from two very different perspectives. Can you tell which one is the painting and satellite snapshot below?
The Guardian posted images shot from European Space Agencyand Nasa satellites this past January, from glaciers to cloud shapes to snow-covered deserts all over the world. One image really stood out to us and even fits into the color inspiration and feel of our Spring 2013 line – the shot taken of the Payún volcanic field of Argentina that was formed over hundreds of thousands of years. What’s even more fascinating is that the color you see isn’t the real color of the land, and is made from a combination of visible and infrared light. Like any map key, green indicates vegetation, black indicates lava flows, and orange is bare rock rich in iron oxides. Fashion always seems to find a way to connect back to nature…
