Personally, I love prints for the summer season. Having traveled most of the east and west coast of Canada, I can totally see where her inspiration was drawn from and she gave me a vision into the view she was enjoying through her collection. I like that the fabric of choice is silk which is not only breezy for the heated summer time, and also adds a touch of luxe. Aside from her prints designs, part of the collection is mainly white; which is feminine and simple - a great addition to the ultimate relaxation.
