Summer is upon us! Okay that was cruel, my apologies. However, if the Ann Taylor Spring/Summer preview could forecast how many weeks of winter are left like Punxsutawney Phil, the verdict would be that a new season is right around the corner. Imagine the blustery, frigid, air of a deep freeze in New York City. Temperatures so cold not one, but two, winter scarves are necessary. In the midst of said severe weather outlined by shades of grey was a preview so vibrant I felt like I had taken a mini vacation while on Manhattan’s west side.
Ann Taylor hosted their preview for their deliveries that will hit stores May- July and the atmosphere was a pleasant ode to those months we long for. The space, The Glass House, located high in the sky over looking the city’s west side, was exquisite. It had every potential to be cold, lofty and distant but with the presence of the warm collections on display, piles of exotic flowers, and some melodic beats from south of the equator, I had been transported to a little slice of summer.
