SUMMER ’19 | EDITORIAL
Roam through the Sonoran Desert plains with the latest pieces from our Summer ’19 collection inspired by the longest day of the year, the summer solstice.
Thirty-five miles outside of Palm Springs, away from the popular vacation spots, modern mid-century architecture and boutique restaurants is a quiet oasis surrounded by nothing but desert hills and the shifting sky. This editorial captures our latest pieces under the solstice sun in the warm summer breeze to accentuate the earth-tone palette and easy silhouettes.
Our Summer ‘19 collection takes the natural landscape of a desert playground enclosed by the San Bernardino, Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains to create pieces imbued for the longest day of the year. Each piece is created from a harmonious interplay of colors found in the desert. From rich browns and beiges of the desert hills, muted green tones found in the sparse spread of yucca plants to hazy shades of blue and white in the sky. The garments of this collection take on the natural elements of the desert to create contemporary pieces for the season.
A solstice occurs when the sun reaches the highest point of the sky resulting in prolonged hours of sunlight. This collection references hallmarks of tailored workwear designs and modern motifs to create effortless silhouettes that you can wear from day to night – providing versatility, sophistication and ease. Made from a range of refined materials from breathable cotton-linen blends to sheer languid fabrics adaptable for the summer heat.
A combination of tonal coordinates and soft-feel separates to wear all season long. Take these summer essentials of knit tanks, crinkled rompers, pleated skirts, short-sleeve blazers and wide-leg linen trousers to wear from the office to casual occasions to elegant evenings. Thoughtfully detailed with tortoise-inspired buttons, playful floral and check prints, contrasting pinstripe patterns and ruched designs to emphasize each silhouette.
High Summer calls for statement jewelry and chic accessory pieces to complement any ensemble. Our jewelry collection of organic-shaped drop earrings, oversized hoops and dainty layered necklaces are crafted from marbled acetate, wooden materials and plated brass in gold and silver tones. Reminiscent of vintage styles, our summer accessories of woven rope macramé-toned bags, strappy heeled sandals and sleek cat-eye sunglasses remain classics for every summer to come.
Accentuate your natural glow for the summer with the new shades from our beauty line. Keep things minimal with our buildable matte liquid lipstick in bold tones of red and brick and our cheek and lip duo in Reef, a soft coral shade, to apply on the cheeks, lips and eyelids for a soft pop of color.
As the season changes, enliven your spaces with our new home pieces inspired by earth’s elements. From the living room to your patio, accent your home with our handcrafted decorative terracotta jugs from India and organic-shaped iron vases coated with a matte finish for a rustic touch.
