The season’s most buzzed about shades come together for an Orient-inspired collection. “Saturated shades of vibrant violet, blackened navy, jade green and red lacquer made a statement on nearly every runway,” remarks Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing.

A mix of striking shades and punchy hues, The Coromandel Collection has just the right amount of “glam” and “edge” to take things up a notch.
