From Havana last season to the south of Iberia for pre-fall; Spanish influences continued to shape Nicole Hanley’s collection. “The landscapes you see on the train from Madrid to Seville and the Moorish carvings started it off for us,” she said. A terrain palette of mustard and brown, tile work and carvings were translated into prints and patterns shown on sporty, casual shapes with dressed up details. For example, silk shirts featured T-shirt necklines and blouse sleeves; a sweatshirt was done in crochet instead of traditional fleece; jogging pants were pleated at the waist. “It’s very much about lifestyle,” said Hanley, “offering pieces that can go from a playdate with the kids to dinner or anywhere.”
