We will be honest and say that out of all the brands at the Denise Williamson showroom, Operations was not the brand we were expecting would be one of our favorites. Second only to Catherine Holstein in our affections in fact. As much as their formula hasn't changed, and as much as we respect them for collaborating with Levi's, the range just felt more polished and trend-cognizant then ever before. The neon piping in each garment, the thin light denim pieces, and the trench coats with contrast collars, were right on the money--even if you couldn't say these were out-there trends to reference. Operations, which takes inspiration from American uniform, is shaping up to be a clever little jackets-and-shirts kind of line and we're happy to see it happen.
