The Stonemaster–California rock climbers of the 1970’s serve as the inspiration of Highland’s fall/winter 2013 collection as they deliver their first presentation for New York Fashion Week. Championing the Stonemasters and their movement propelled by the desire to live free of all restraint, dreaming of higher peaks and larger risks. With the clothes on their back inspiring Highland, varied colors and fabrics come together for a laid-back reinterpretation of the decade. While purple and quartz reference nylon climbing ropes, colors such as chalk and pine represent the rocky faces of the Yosemite. Embracing the call of nature, Indian ikat fabrics juxtaposed with Mexican Thunderbird blankets color the collection with items like the sherpa coat or motorcycle jacket tying back into Highland’s structured heritage.
