SKIP INTO SUMMER

JUN 04, 2019

These sunny new collections will fill your wardrobe with new energy.

Ready to nail your summer wardrobe? From the perfect flowy dress to neat trousers and killer bikinis, you’ll be ready to every occasion under the sun thanks to the latest collections from your favourite designers. Whether you’re packing for a well-deserved beach getaway or in the market for breezy office styles, these inspiring summer looks will brighten up your closet.

World of Inspiration

Try on Tory Burch’s new Smocked Cotton Dress with a Bulgari bag.

Escapism is what best describes Tory Burch’s SS2019 collection – and it’s one of the best ways to channel your summer spirit. The entire lookbook is an ode to far-flung destinations – from Morocco to Spain, Italy to Greece – inspired by Burch’s parents, who journeyed far and wide while the designer was growing up.

As such, these are clothes that are inherently vacation-ready: comfortable, breezy and relaxed, from canvas sneakers and matching print coordinates to cotton sundresses, crisp white shirts and straw bucket hats – not to mention a few covetable beach totes. Because it’s Tory Burch, the line isn’t just a fleeting fashion fling; each piece will stay timeless for many summers to come.

Colour Coded

Fierce, fiery shades are in this season at Diane von Furstenberg.

Diane von Furstenberg has built a career out of bright, joyous dressing and her summer and pre-fall 2019 collection follows suit. Colour – vibrant, bold, ebullient – shines in pieces like a ‘manic’ pink billowing midi dress in silk Crepe de Chine, or a ruffled silk-chiffon top in a deep red. Patterns also dominate the range, spanning florals, geometric shapes and stripes.

This season also marks the debut of TVF for DVF – a capsule collection by the designer’s 19-year-old granddaughter Talita. Targeting a younger demographic, the line spans whimsical pieces that have ‘summer wanderlust’ written all over them – think frocks in pretty botanical prints, casual blouses, and ruffled numbers that require no styling.

Nomadic Chic

Chloé’s SS19 collection evokes a nomadic lifestyle.

Natacha Ramsay-Levi, Chloé's chic creative director, described the brand’s SS19 collection as “hippie modernism.” That’s exactly it: from fluid dresses to rope belts, bold jewels and separates in boho prints, the whole look book for this season is a mix of Coachella, resort wear and desert vibes – and the essence of a laidback summer.

Sophisticated Swimwear

Ease into vacation mode with new Evarae suits at Sheer withnew Gucci shades.

It wouldn’t be a summer without new swimwear. This season, the new line of luxurious Evarae suits at Sheer are an elegant option, showcasing flattering cuts and just enough skin. The Bene Bikini by Evarae, for instance, comes in a chic red-and-white colour combination with sensual cut-out details.

Also by Evarae, the Thalia Colour Block Diamond Padded One Piece, with a halter neck and a V-front plunge, is ideal if you want to channel 50s Hollywood glam. And, last but not least, the multi-coloured seersucker Rachel Bikini, by Solid and Striped, is pretty and playful. Get one, or all three, and hit the beach.

Pretty Pastels

Strap on a pair of summery slides from Roger Vivier’s new range.

Inspired by the Jardins du Château de Versailles, the French maison has rolled out slingback flats and pumps with Swarovski crystal buckles that are perfect for special occasions. Meanwhile, more casual metallic mules and two-tone sandals will be your go-to shoes day-to-day. While you’re there, check out the brand’s new collection of bag.
