Fascinated by the progressive palette of his native Seattle, Chris Benz's lines are a blend of muted and neutral tones with sudden pops of color, which work beautifully with his slouchy-yet-sophisticated take on sportswear. Always growing, however, his recent lines have taken inspiration from locales both old and new. Whether it's 1960s Paris to modern-day Southern gentility in Georgia, he finds new ways to present timeless looks.
