Capes and plaids

In its last style report on Bubble New York, WGSN highlighted, among other trends, the omnipresence of capes and plaids. Judy Lee, designer of Half Dot Brooklyn is right in the air with a collection of wonderfully shaped coats in plaid fabrics. Furthermore, the line integrates some other key trends : organic (all pieces are lined with luxurious soft organic cotton), comfort/cocooning (the lining makes the products as comfortable as a child's favorite blanket), versatility (the entire collection is created for multi-weather wear: the simple click of snap buttons transforms each outfit so that it can be worn across the seasons) and playfulness (multitude of pockets for toys and treasures). This is what we call a hit!
