Floral Bags signal the first signs of Spring dressing, and this season, they’re blooming bigger than ever. SCOUT features Petallica in pink, green, and aqua as well as Outline Floral to offer you the best flower power in the market. Subtle to vibrant in small to exaggerated scale, flowers add feminine fashion to your home and your ensembles.
Our new webbing features a detail taken from our SCOUT logo label…Saddle Stitch. As we surveyed the best designer bags for the season, we noticed a trend, saddle stitching accented a range of leather bags adding a refreshing Spring attitude to our favorite silhouettes. Check out our saddle stitched webbing on our coolers.
On the streets of Paris, Milan, and London, one thing was clear…women love leopard and other cats’ spots. Fur versions translate into cottons, leathers, and silks for Spring/Summer. Always in fashion, SCOUT features leopard spots each season with a new twist. This season we’re showing Go Cat Go in storage to tote options. Our Ice Ice Baby is the perfect fashion forward lunch tote for the sophisticated fashionista.
Black and white graphics are hotter than ever. One of our favorites is from Vilebrequin, printed on men and boy swim trunks, featured in a window in Paris. Great for seaside getaways to pool play, we think you can pack these for the man in your life in our Signature SCOUT Fast Getaway. Our Signature SCOUT pattern is not only timeless but directional in black and white…great for the weekend getaway.
British impact is stronger than ever. The TRENCH in all its glory is a pivotal piece for Spring/Summer dressing. From the traditional Mac inspired to the redesigned Burberry season after season...from feminized versions with ruffles, layered panels, and a-line to bell shaped silhouettes…the Trench works day to night and workweek to weekend. Most versatile in khaki tones, other irresistible options include black (always in fashion) to white or icy pastels. Trench silhouettes range from jacket to maxi lengths with self belts, double breasting, flaps, and patch pocket must have details.
The British invasion is alive and well on the fashion avenues of Europe. Vintage to contemporary versions of the Union Jack…adorned tee shirts and accessories to home furnishings…with actual flags hung in stores throughout the fashion capitals. Traditionally colored or re-colored in black and white to bright tones, this emblem of irreverence and tradition is perfect for the times
Checks, plaids, and argyles are back in a big way. Clan tartans in traditional color ways are most exciting in directional silhouettes and unexpected accessories. Checks are the most popular shirting option for the season...mini to maxi, bi-colored to multi-colored, printed to woven, checks are layered and mixed with each other as well as with florals and stripes. Medals of honor are iconic yet fashionable additions to this British inspired movement.
Always a rite of passage into the Spring/Summer season, stripes are fresher than ever…Awning, rugby, umbrella, candy cane, nautical, men’s shirting, ticking, and toweling stripes are all contemporary options when colored in vibrant brights on white or in exaggerated scales on homewares to RTW. Creative stripeage comes to us from Pantone to Smeg with nautical to color blocked looks leading the way.
Yellow ushers in Spring like no other hue …the color of the sun, daffodils, forsythia…it’s vibrant, cheerful, and refreshingly stylish. We feature designers from Vivienne Westwood to Toy Watch. Yellow works as an accent or as a "neutral" and is often mixed with khaki or slate for the most contemporary looks.
SHOCKING PINK is the hottest news on the fashion streets of Europe. Head to toe or as an irresistible accessory option, pink always works. We chose showstoppers like Bonpoint and Moschino to Dolce & Gabbana and the Hermespaint by number scarf...not forgetting the quintessential pink vespa as our must-haves for the season.
Purple is the most directional color for the season. From violet to periwinkle…lavender to lilac…and grape to plum, purple sets the stage for an invigorating season in accessories to outerwear. We chose Dior to Tods for accessories and Faconnable to Fragonard for RTW.
Nothing makes white look better than natural, and nothing make natural looks better than white…the combination is contemporary and commercial. We like crisp, polished fabrics mixed with natural linens and cottons…the more contrast in texture and hand, the better. Our choices for some of the best natural white combos are Anne Fontaine, Zadig and Voltaire , Matches, and Stella McCartney.
Nothing ushers in Spring like floral bouquets… the colors, the scents, the romance… this Spring is no exception. Flowers scatter over the collections like gardens, most refreshing tiny and feminine or exaggerated and bold. Look for new combinations including embroidered borders, vibrant checks and stripes, and layering of florals over textured or sheer grounds.
Florals take their cue from global inspirations…Tahiti, Eastern Europe, Asia, and Latin America inspire vibrant florals often in mixes with stripes and decorative borders.
Everything old is new again. More contemporary than ever, liberty florals are back. Perfect for dresses to head-to-toe casual, ditsy florals create interest without weight, femininity without overt girliness.
Cabbage roses to peonies in bold to painterly styles explode for Spring/Summer RTW and accessories. Dramatic on black grounds to feminine on pastel or neutral grounds, maxi scale florals create dramatic impressions this season.
Patent is the newest in color and continues as a main stay for Spring/Summer accessories and RTW. Tissue weight patent is the newest news for RTW applications. Pearlized leather and metals are a softer, more contemporary expression of shine. Crystal takes its cue from opulent chandeliers. Tear drop to princess cut crystals become necklaces to bag closures...shoe studding to fabrics. Crystal embellishment is the new "necklace" for the handbag. For evening and day, sheer layers continue to create romantic to nomadic looks this season. Matte and shine sheers create subtle style head to toe.
