Splendid Indigo Dye Spring 2014

I learned of the Splendid brand last year while in San Francisco visiting a friend. We walked by this boutique and I saw this maxi dress and HAD to have it. The material is so incredibly soft and comfortable and still stylish. I could live in that maxi dress! So when I saw this press release in my inbox, before even considering sharing it with you all, I had to go pick out my must have items from their site! I'm not ashamed to admit it. And I wouldn't be me if I didn't. I don't plan on sharing many Press Releases here with you guys, but this one is too good not to share, especially if you're ready for Spring! 





Press Release 

Los Angeles, CA – For Spring 2014, Splendid is excited to unveil a capsule collection called Indigo Dye, derived from a marriage of indigo dyes and Splendid’s lux knits resulting in a crisp, modern assortment that plays perfectly with the full array of the Spring 2014 collection. The brand’s LA roots served as inspiration for the collection, from neighboring denim washhouses to rich ocean hues, Splendid’s Indigo Dye offers a rediscovery of the color blue.

SHORT ROMPER // MINI STRIPE // MEDIUM WASH 

The Indigo Dye capsule collection serves up a fresh approach to tees, French terry and chambrays in a mix of solids, classic stripes and dark to light washes for men and women. Each piece in the capsule is dyed and manufactured in LA`s premium denim washhouses through a highly specialized process allowing the design team to play with color and texture. The dye process also allows for uniqueness in each item with varying shading and distressing, making no two garments the same. Rompers, tees, sweatshirts, dresses and shirting comprise the capsule; all offered in the brand’s signature comfortable, sophisticated, classic style.

One thing they don't mention in their press release is that their lookbook was shot using real people not models. I love that, and I'm here if you need me Splendid! LOL! After checking out the collection, these are my must have items:

The Chambray Pant - I love sweatpants, I love cute drapey dress pants and I love jeans. This is like all 3 in one! I NEED these! 

The Chambray Jumpsuit - I have been searching for a cute romper that would work here in our casual beach town. I mean does this not just scream beach vacation? Adding to the NEED pile! 


The Indigo Knit Dolman Top - There is nothing I like more than a 3 quarter leave knit top for Spring here. It is the perfect transition piece. I can wear it over a swimsuit while paddle boarding, with shorts to stay a bit warmer than a tank or short sleeve tends to offer, or with jeans. And if it is as soft as my maxi dress by Splendid, I am all in!

Do you have any Splendid pieces? Which is your favorite? I encourage you to go on the Splendid site and see if there is a store near you and go try on some pieces. But I warn you now, you won't leave empty handed.

  2. I can't think of a much more quintessential "Spring" piece than a soft, 3/4 length striped nautical top. I love the vertical stripes on the sleeves. So looking forward to the launch! Thank you for the heads up.

  6. I love that short romper! I can think of a million ways to wear it for spring and summer so I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for it in stores. I also love that striped top but I have too many striped tops already so better for my wallet lol. Great post, I'm a huge Splendid fan starting back with their uber comfy henleys a few years back!
