Brand new designer looks straight from Resort, take a look at what Jonathan Simkhai, Derek Lam & Anna Sui have to offer this season.
As one of the rising stars of the New York fashion scene, Jonathan Simkhai has quickly gained a reputation for creating pieces that are influenced by menswear yet retain their femininity. Resort finds the designer in a sporty mood, mixing denim and metallics to create a graphic look with just the right amount of sex appeal. Fans of Simkhai’s look are sure to find something fresh to enjoy, while new admirers are certain to flock to the sleek dresses and letterman jackets.
The streamlined look Derek Lam presented for fall carries over into his minimal resort collection, an appealing set of wardrobe essentials inspired by Art Deco and North African destinations like Egypt and Eritrea. This unexpected combination of influences is united by Lam’s focus on lightness as well as his muted color palette of desert hues. Flowing tunics and square cut djellaba are rendered in geometric patterns and covered with a glossy coat of gold resin.
