RESORT TO COLOUR

This Season Let The Light In

Resort is that in-between season that predicts spring and summer fashion but occurs just as winter hits its greyest; it is a perfect harbinger of what to wear in the sunshine to come or on those necessary vacation get-aways. Keep it light in terms of colour and fabrics. These easy pieces and tonal approach allow you to literally keep it light and take an entire vacation wardrobe in a mere carry-on.

Céline offers a fresh take on nautical stripes with more generous proportions and an artfully slashed sleeve treatment. A wide cropped trouser offers day to night versatility when flats are swapped for heels. Add a red lip for a pop of colour and contrast.

Red is the new neutral this season. Choose Rick Owens’ lipstick red column dress for its effortless ease and simplicity; the Céline slide grounds the look for relaxed daytime dressing while architectural accessories elevate the look.

Athletic wear goes from a downtown favourite to an all-occasion staple this season. A case in point: Haider Ackermann’s sleek take on the tracksuit, which turns feminine and pretty with the unexpected addition of a lux silk cami instead of a classic tee. Give the season’s must-have tonal look a pop of colour with powder blue slides by Céline.

While Haider Ackermann is generally known for a dark and moody palette, this season he breaks with that tradition and moves to the lighter side of the spectrum, offering playful sporty looks and sinewy silks in primary colours. The dress of the moment is fluid, with a take on the draping of a sarong and looks freshest in cornflower blue. Keep it easy and casual with Balenciaga embellished flats and Céline’s smart tote

The jumpsuit is as easy as a dress when it comes to the perfect piece for a resort-worthy wardrobe. Rick Owens amps up the sexy and cool by offering his version of the getaway staple with a cut-away back for a flash of sun-kissed skin.

Athletic wear has infiltrated every aspect of the closet, with the tracksuit replacing classic jacket and pant combos and hoodies are taking over as the go to cover-up for slip dresses and daywear.

Shoulders and sleeves are a focal point this spring, and Sacai plays with both in an anything-but-classic cardigan. The look gets a harder edge with a denim skirt and a heavy flat while contrasting sunglasses by Linda Farrow add a playful pop of unexpected colour.
