Paul & Joe S/S 2013

ISLAND TIME
Paris: Relaxed and casual, Sophie Albou-Mechaly’s spring collection for Paul & Joe had all the right elements for a perfect vacation wardrobe. Comfortable denim and cotton were made into roomy bottoms and easy button-ups, and eyelets added a touch of femininity. The highlights of the show were prints and patterns depicting Hawaiian hibiscus flowers and tropical birds. Created in soothing tones of mint, peach, baby blue and dove grey and mixed with classic stripes, the prints stood out without taking over. Color blocked sweaters, anoraks and boyfriend blazers rounded out this sweet offering, which is sure to appeal to the Juniors who follow the label. –Joanna Manganaro
