We couldn't be more excited to finally reveal that the Clifton+Leopold Spring collection will officially launch one week from today: Saturday, May 1st.
Our Spring collection is called "Re-Emergence." This comes from the idea of flowers re-emerging from the ground, our re-emerging from the "long and prolonged winter of quarantine" the re-emergence of the things we love, etc. It's all about looking forward and getting back together.
And while these are the specific scenarios that came to mind for us when discussing Re-emergence, it will resonate differently with everyone, because it is your story to write!
Our debut collection gave a look back and homage to the past - our roots and our love of classic accessories. This collection, capsule, and look is more about now and stepping boldly into what's to come.
Symbolically, this is also the last release of the first year of C+L, on the one year anniversary of our launch, & the first collection as we step into our second year. We'll never miss a chance to say THANK YOU for showing up for us along the way.

Re-emergence is a complete color and concept collection. With that, a brief note on the color palette (with product swatches!), because if you know us, you know we're Pantone Heads!
Our Spring palette is all about serene blues, optimistic yellows, and vivifying pinks. It is also the most cohesive of our collections so far, so we can truly say - these products are meant to be worn together!
We love this palette for many reasons, not the least of which is how Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute described it:
"Offering a range of shades illustrative of nature, colors for Spring/Summer 2021 underscore our desire for flexible color that works year-around. Infused with a genuine authenticity that continues to be increasingly important, colors for Spring/Summer 2021 combine a level of comfort and relaxation with sparks of energy that encourage and uplifts our mood."
Clifton+Leopold: Re-Emergence debuts next Saturday, 5/1 at 12pm CST. We cannot WAIT to see How You Do Dapper in our new Spring collection. Don't forget to tag us @cliftonandleopold and use #howidodapper!
