I think I like spring clothes better than winter ones. Some cute styles in there. Nice coats and jackets.

Great collection - I love the 'lookbook' presentation & the styling options too, it's so inspiring -- can't wait for the new Vogues, too!!!

I like 6505, although I think some of the Kay Umber (I guess Phoebe Couture is a "youth" line) patterns in Vogue have had problems before.
I also like 6523.

I like 6520, but the picture they selected to represent it is awful. I had to look really closely at the line drawings to really see what the pattern was!

6503 makes me happy


6506 also makes me happy


6519 is a good spring wardrobe...love the skirt


There are lots of wide pants, pleated pants, and loose fitting pants. I just got used to skinny pants.

The photography of this collection is beautiful. Can't put my finger on the exactly quality I love but there is a nice "lightness" to it.

Some really cute patterns too!

Cheap fabrics, like cheap shoes, are a false economy.

At first glance of the fashion photos, I didn't like anything. But looking closer, there are quite a few I like.

I really must make the clear jacket! Love it!
6517


I like these in the knit version with the angled yoke.
6514


6514


There are several others too like a few of the dresses. My only beef are the giant 70's collars. I can't pull those off at all.

Thanks for posting, I love it when the Spring books come out. Makes you think winter will be over soon.
