    Digital printed fabrics are becoming more and more interesting with every fashion season. As the technology improves, so, invariably, do the clothes. Indie fave designer Julie Haus--who recently opened her first boutique on Soho's Broome Street--is producing some of the best we've seen yet with her gorgeous spring 2011 collection.

    The unique appeal of Haus' digital prints has to do with their weirdly "natural" look: grassy textures, pale blue skies and pebbled earth tones are used on everything from tops and skirts to perfectly draped dresses and tunics. Our favorite silky pocket tank features a cloudy horizon with silhouetted tree-tops at the neck, while a pleated skirt dress is made up of blurry, tulip-colored print that evokes a lush spring field.

    We can't wait to peep the whole collection when it hits Haus' Soho shop this spring--some of the dresses, particularly a speckled brown tunic with an extra-long panel in the back, would make magnificent transition pieces when the snow starts to thaw (hopefully) in six months.
