Inspired by vintage Toile prints from the ’60s and ’70s, focusing on action scenes from the Kentucky Derby® track and race. Details for the type of horse, the color, even down to the movement of the mane, were provided by the Churchill Downs® Organization.
Our Women’s Designer was really inspired by the old school preppy-ness of this type of print, and worked closely with our in-house Illustrator on the the layout of the scene, making sure to include really interesting and relevant details about the track and the race.

“We really wanted to create that great conversational piece that a woman would talk about and wear at the Derby. There is so much detail in the print that you could look at it for hours and find something interesting or something historical. It is a special print that’s supposed to resonate with the people who frequent the Derby and can relate to things they see every time they go, as well as people who are going to the Derby for the first time and can appreciate all the excitement of the race with the historical significance that the Derby represents!”
