Rules are few and fussiness is frowned upon in UNBOUNDED, a visual celebration of diverse patterns, textures and colors. In this latest look at Bohemian-inspired styling, we're mixing regional and folkloric motifs, vibrant and colorful accessories, and modern embellishments to create a convincing and cosmopolitan show of personal expression.

This season’s TRANSITIONS vignette illustrates this natural migration pattern in a two-part story of scale and functionality.
