“Seventy miles northwest of Seattle lie the San Juan Islands, a secluded archipelago, barley tucked into the Puget Sound pocket. It’s a cellular dead zone.

Inspired by grey washed rain shadows, cordovan tide lines, sandstone outcroppings and weathered Douglas-fir, CWST veils the sun for Autumn Winter 2016.”
“The AW’16 collection is inspired by Blue Note Jazz and the effortlessly cool musicians like Jimmy Smith, Art Blakey, and Max Roach. Photographs by Francis Wolff and graphic design by Reid Miles were the inspiration for the color palette and textiles this season.”
