Bold Stripes

Valentino Resort 2015


Resort season is all about luxury. The pre-Spring/Summer collection always debuts at the break of the sun’s first warming rays. It seems vacation is on everyone’s minds, whether yours is coming sooner or later. Typical nautical stripes are usually a fundamental trend as we head to the shore for RR&R (rest, relaxation, and resort), but this season stripes are anything but sailor. Funky colors and oversized silhouettes took inspiration from the boys in Stella McCartney’s rugby rendition, the seaside in Marni’s parasol stripes, and taking on new form altogether at Valentino (a revived 1973 graphic!) and Kenzo where linear got angular.

So say goodbye to boring, basic stripes and welcome in a new wave of psychedelic colors and patterns.

Brands to Look For: Kenzo, Zero + Maria Cornejo, Marni, Stella McCartney, Valentino

Fun Florals

Another essential spring/summer/resort trend that reincarnates itself annually is floral print. This season they were bold, bright, and retro. Christopher Kane’s affinity for both neon and flower combined this season for mod minis rendered from the designer’s hand-drawn blooms in a combination of Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and psychedelic styles. A rosy appliquéd maxi stole the show at Alexander McQueen in juicy berry hues. Valentino accompanied their archival stripes with Frida Kahlo-inspired ruffles and rainbow-hued flora and fauna embroideries.

Bermuda Shorts


Here’s the long and short of it—Bermudas are back and better than ever. (We’re noticing a pattern—recycled trends are always better the second time around!) When summer temperatures reach dangerous heights and whatever style we left the house with has melted by the time we hit the subway, we’re longing for as little clothes as possible. But our frayed cutoffs and professional power dress just don’t mix. Until now! They hit at or just above the knee and can be worn trim and fitted or relaxed and loose—we prefer the latter for universally flattering style, trust us they look great on everyone! Style your shorts with a silk blouse, and if you’re feeling really brave, try a pair of monochromatic pastel hues. Now that’s cool.

Brands to Look For: J. Crew, 3.1 Philip Lim, Jason Wu, Matthew Williamson, Elizabeth & James, Andrew Gn, Opening Ceremony
