the making of the cameo top: from conception to design

October 11, 2016

It was love at first sight when the Design Team discovered the ornate cameo print that would ultimately become the Cameo Top. Inspired by the unique vintage-inspired cameo silhouettes and deep raspberry and aubergine color palette, the design began to come to life.

“When we saw the print, we were smitten by the silhouetted faces of glamorous ladies, surrounded by darling little icons—telephones, glasses, umbrellas, pearls, and more. It’s just so fun! Conversational prints like this can feel a bit silly, so we wanted to transform it into something sophisticated and cool.”
– Kat Woodside, Chief Design Officer
