The 'Upstate' Spring 2011 collection falls somewhere between Brooklyn hipster and hippie lovechild. All pieces from the collection are hand-dyed to look like your mother's nostalgic tie-dyed clothing, but cut to match a modern audience.

The indie Brooklyn-based label is on the rise with the 'Upstate' Spring 2011 line. Boasting capes, kerchiefs, ponchos and vests, these gorgeous tie-dyed pieces will be must-have items this spring season.
