Boulder, CO (January 18, 2013) — Building on a decade of success in the knitwear category, Neve Designs today announced the launch of their new outerwear collection for women.
Known for their quality craftsmanship and mastery of color and texture, Neve has enjoyed continuous growth in the specialty ski retail market, and more recently, with lifestyle-oriented fashion consumers.
“Neve’s distinct point-of-view has resonated with retail buyers and consumers alike,” said Tom Irvine, CEO of Neve Designs. “The brand’s unique design aesthetic blends ski fashion elegance with the latest trends in ready-to-wear, to create pieces that are equally at home on the streets of New York as they are Aspen. With the launch of the outerwear collection, Neve has answered a call from our customers to create a line that will fully and beautifully — complete the Neve look.”
Embracing Neve’s Colorado heritage, the collection’s 13 styles of jackets and vests make expert use of performance-oriented design techniques and fabrics built to withstand the elements. Color stories offer wide appeal by ranging from urban chic Eggplant and Mushroom to bright and sporty Apricot and Peacock.
As with Neve’s knitwear line, the outerwear collection features an abundance of unexpected design elements and textures: knit sleeves, felted accents, fun vintage prints and fashion-forward bolero sleeves. Puffy jackets are tempered with cinched and belted waists to create lean silhouettes, while lengths run the gamut from hip-length moto-inspired jackets to warm and cozy car coats.
“The Neve woman moves effortlessly from a day on the mountain to an elegant evening dinner – and is stunning on both occasions without even changing her sweater,” said Neve marketing director, Jennifer Tille. ” She loves color and pattern, and understands how, used with restraint, it can take the mundane and make it exceptional. This is the Neve woman, and we’ve designed this collection for her.”
Neve outerwear will be available at retail and online at www.nevedesigns.com late summer 2013.
