Press is very much the big sis line to fun and flirty Kersh.  The westcoast ease and approachable luxury remain the same, but are realized in muted, earth-tone colours, tie-dyes, and tone-on-tone combinations.  A variety of easy-breezy tank dresses walked out, versions in gradient dip-dye starting as a neutral stone color and finishing as a bright military green as well as tie-dyes in ochre and brown kept the palette grounded.  Maxi skirts in the same military tones matched with body-con long-sleeve light-weight cotton u-neck tops continued the theme of a tall, willowy silhouette. Feminine rolled-up army shorts strolled out featuring a lovely loose knit tank that varied the tightness of its knit throughout, definitely a favourite.  More knits, part of the Press mainstay, in a range of trendy horizontal stripes appeared as sweaters, cardis, long and short.  Over-sized cardis and vests of thicker summer knits rounded off the collection and carry on the current fall/winter obsession with all things knitwear.  Overall, the collection was tightly executed, each piece thematically strong, and offered a cohesive and complete product range.
