Fall 2014: Forward


What is it about fall that makes us feel so conflicted? It’s nostalgic, it’s exciting, it’s rife with newness—it’s also a touch anxiety-inducing. Our designers have created a sartorial language for this mix of emotions—just flip through the pages of our catalog (hitting our stores and your mailbox this week) to see. Can’t wait? Here are a few highlights…

Inside, you’ll find our fall muse, Malgosia Bela, photographed in her home city of Paris. You’ll also find that the pieces we love and live in every year have been updated: i.e., our new favorite ankle boot has a chunkier heel and a sleek back zipper, our flannel shirt features contrast lining, our leather jacket is boxier through the body with a slim sleeve and our jeans are authentically distressed in darker washes. Somehow, these pieces satisfy both the desire for nostalgia and the need for change all at once.

Want a sneak peek? Cruise over to Pinterest right now. Our favorite looks are there a bit early for your pinning and sharing pleasure. Not on our mailing list? Sign up so you don’t miss the next catalog and stroll over to your local Madewell to pick up a copy this week.
