Talbots was in a sunny, optimistic mood for spring. The brand infused its classic American sportswear silhouettes — tailored trousers and blazers; crisp shirting; flouncy, A-line skirts; fit-and-flare shirtdresses — with an artful clash of whimsically feminine and vintage-inspired prints, including florals, polka dots, paisleys and fruit.


The idea of “soft dressing” came into play with a pair of languid, wide-legged silk trousers that fused comfort and sophistication. A preppy nautical theme, seen in seersucker separates and throughout in a red, blue and white palette, riffed on the brand’s New England heritage.
