THE BLUES: Always saleable, always fresh, and always work with lots of white. Indigo continues to be the fashion approach to navy . . . very dry, very dark, and especially effective when used in its natural dip dye, blurred, bleeding effect. The other message is to layer all the blues and create print excitement with very expressive Delft and China blue patterns.
