Island Time

Nicole Crews, Staff Staff, April 19, 2012

The 2012 High Point Market sets sail this month with the latest outdoor looks on board and ready for duty. High performance wovens retain staying power this season while traditional looks across the board go full throttle with bold colorways and breakaway styling. Geometry angles its way into modern frames and shows up elementally in linear looks. Organic design digs deep into mother earth for firmly-rooted looks with staying power. It ventures to the islands for inspiration and finds it in the sea and maritime flora beyond. Organic island looks in outdoor are destination bound. From the Caribbean all the way to the South China Sea, escapism comes in the form of the exotic. Here's a sampling of what's on the High Point horizon.


The Leeward Islands Collection by Panama Jack incorporates a high grade Indonesian teak frame with a natural finish.

The beauty and tranquility of aquatic life is magnified in 20 Leagues from the Resort Collection. The octopus center graphic is shown in three shades of blue and features multi-dimensional construction.



The Cromwell Collection bamboo gazebo adds a touch of the tropics to any setting.
