'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Fashion thrives on change, so designers constantly tweak their collections to seduce customers seeking the thrill of something new. On spring runways, ruffles flounced, louche silhouettes and macrame handbags announced Boho was back, and skin peeked through clothing from head to toe, making it apparent that cutouts are cool. Will these new trends appeal to the general public?

Just for Frills

Balenciaga sculpted ruffles on thigh-high flamenco skirts, and a denim jacket with a fluffy peplum.

Seeing Through It

Stiletto gladiator boots/sandals at Altuzarra, bandage dresses at Michael Kors and peekaboo evening wear at Naeem Khan showed off spring's penchant for transparency.

Going Boho

Tie-dyed skirts, ponchos, fringe, caftans and beaded necklaces at Tory Burch, Ralph Lauren and Diane von Furstenberg spoke to a globe-trotting, Bohemian spirit in these collections.
