    Each season we embark on an epic journey to discover WHAT'S NEW? Not surprisingly, after several transformative years, it's understandable that our lives have shifted in many ways and A CHANGE IN PERSPECTIVE can be expected.

    Preppy is back…again. We’ll explore why and what that looks like this time around in our CLUB HOUSE trend.

    We'll also revisit what it takes to gear up for an increasingly active life in our trend called THE MODERNIST.

    Then we'll journey into A LIFE REIMAGINED - where our health and eagerness to reconnect become tangible products we can offer our customers. We'll identify and outfit ways to BREATHE EASY and we’ll build a case as to why PLAY DATES that creatively mix work and play, could be the key to our success in 2023. These are the trends we're here to reveal on our exploration of WHAT'S NEW?
