NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 13, 2012--
Saks Fifth Avenue announces the launch of 9|15, an exclusive new

and ambitious woman. The line’s debut follows the successful 2011 launch

an eye on the woman who wants quality fashion without sacrificing

and opal punctuate a palette of subdued neutrals like pavement, bamboo
and stone. But for all the collection’s ease, there is also a feeling of
movement and progress. Jackets made of parachute tencel and
wrinkle-resistant memory tech fabric add a sense of sport, while
decorative leather and pocket details contribute an element of high
