You might associate Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen with the neutral basics that got you through the week in past seasons (grey SGMC oxford, grey SGMC cardigan, etc.), but this summer's collection heads in a very different direction. Cohen says his collection is streetwear-influenced—"a combination of bold prints and loud, bright colors." The collection's vibrancy comes from animal prints and strong athletic influence seen in gym shorts, tanks and varsity jackets. There are still enough polished classics in there to balance things out, but the overall message seems to be that its okay for us to run a bit wild when the weather calls for it.

The collection is available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s and shadesofgreyclothing.com.
