In the way that gold can lose its plating, occasionally I’m able to become unjaded* about New York Fashion Week long enough to see something great. RICHARDS, a new line by New Yorker Sarah Leslie Richards, is one that steered me onto the rocks. The debut collection lured me in with a siren’s call of photorealistic leafy junglenalia** prints. Also music to my eyes is the fact that Richards manufactures in NYC.

*I know it’s not a word.

UPDATE: The fall/winter 2013 collection images are here and it’s still a wearable printy wonderland. See?
