Behind the Seams: The Citrus Collection

Posted on August 11, 2022 by Camille Begley

Dappled sunshine hits your face as you sip fresh limoncello on the Amalfi Coast. Or maybe limoncello isn’t your speed; you prefer pasta al limon paired with a pitcher of sangria. Try papaya or mango paletas, topped with Tajin for the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. The Citrus Collection, Mood’s latest exclusive print collection, is an ode to the cuisine and sweltering heat of late July and August. Vibrant shades of hot pink, lime green, and lemon yellow recall fresh-picked baskets of fruit, turned into eye-catching prints that hit directly to the brain’s pleasure center. The definition of dopamine dressing, the Citrus Collection is all about embracing your individuality and sewing the way you see fit.

The Inspiration

While neutrals and minimalism are certainly having a moment, many fashion designers, including Anna Sui, Moschino, and Christopher John Rodgers, are embracing a maximalist, joyful aesthetic. In our post-pandemic world, there is no such thing as “too much.” Each oversized print and bold color sings with hopeful promise and an unabashed happiness. As we developed and curated the Citrus Collection, we took virtual trips to California’s orange groves and the colorful streets of Mexico City. We found ourselves repeatedly drawn to oversized prints and Day-Glo shades. Most of all, we had fun. The Citrus Collection is certainly one of our favorites to date!

The Collection

Featuring a total of 18 prints over a whopping 5 grounds, there is something for everyone within the Citrus Collection. Grab vibrant cotton voiles for summer sundresses, or structured linen and rayon blends for transitional, joyful outerwear. It’s the perfect collection for late summer and early fall; when the heat begins to fade, but you’re still hanging onto summer fruits and sorbets!
