Versatility was the theme in Adeam’s latest collection. Drawing from her youth in Tokyo, designer Hanako Maeda put her own spin on the 90s Kawaii fashion scene, in which the girls of Harajuku mixed together different codes of fashion (preppy, skater, vintage, etc.) to create their own unique style. ADEAM’s resort collection featured items like a raw denim bustier, both feminine and tough, that can be styled in a variety of ways.
Missoni’s Resort 2019 collection upheld the brand’s colorful reputation with a muted rainbow of flowing knits and patterns. Cardigans could be seen layered over collared button ups and paired with loose, striped culottes. Platform loafers and flats complimented the garments, while the looks were completed with floor -ength scarves, head wraps, and shoulder duster earrings.
Agnona presented a collection of understated, sport-inspired outerwear, knitwear, and lightweight tailoring. Sun washed colors like Faded Blue Denim, Pistachio, and Sandalwood could be seen on kaftan dresses, chinos, and other wardrobe staples. This minimalist line embodies the epitome of soft power dressing.
Tanya Taylor’s Resort 2019 collection was made for the New York woman, whose mood is revealed by her choice of garments. We saw eye-catching jades, magentas, and reds, floral paired with plaid, and the effortless sophistication of layering. Inspired by the recent Josef Albers exhibition at the Guggenheim and the David Hockney show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Tanya Taylor used color as a device to surprise, inspire, and romanticize.
For N°21, designer Alessandro Dell’Aqcua created lines that caressed the body. Sequined skirts were paired with plaid bombers and masculine silhouettes partnered with sensual knits. The collection felt equally as diverse as the femininity of each wearer.
Bottega Veneta’s Resort 2019 brought us a collection fit for business or play, featuring a variety of warm, earthy colors and soft nudes. The collection, perfect for layering, showcased a series of mid-length skirts, loose-fitting trousers, and a variety of coats and jackets—including a soft beige duffle coat with fur details. Each look was completed with a pair of heels or knee-high boots and a handbag or a fanny pack.
Pamella Roland’s latest collection embodied the colorful nature of the Bahamas, one of the designer’s favorite travel destinations. Numerous silhouettes were seen as timeless essentials to the modern woman’s wardrobe, accompanied by a vibrant range of colors seen in the Bahamian floral details.
Noon by Noor’s Resort collection left us wishing we were vacationing on the sandy shores of Bahrain. The small island located in the Persian Gulf is the homeland of the brand’s designers Shaikha Noor Rashid Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Mohamed Al Khalifa, and constantly serves as dreamy inspiration. A soft palette of colors like palm, pink sand, and sun reflected the local environment, while a mixture of silhouettes with simple details and textural woven fabrics created an easygoing feel.
Eye catching colors and all-over sequins filled Greta Constantine’s Resort collection. Looks (like the floor-length, sequined gown and the blue pantsuit belted with a thick gold embellishment) were finished with colorful wide-brimmed sunhats, making them the perfect summer statement for day to night.
