i don't want to grow up...

it is clara martin's maiden visit to new york city and all signs lead to a colorful first impression - from her candy striped business card to the array of jellybeans on her work table to the yellow, raspberry and space blue basics that shape her vivid line.

meet the autumn/winter 2016 collection: boyish, easy, accessible, defined by cotton jersey, matt lycra, drawstrings, slogans, bomber jackets and a statement making "grown up" overcoat with just the right amount of attitude.

"C" is for cables, cropped joggers, culottes, and most of all, confidence.

how cool to be in clara's club!
