Modern Voyager does all three, offering up chic modernist clothes that function as perfectly on the high seas of an ocean liner as on a city street. These are clothes that offer a new approach to fashion at a time when we are yearning for adventure, escape and, above all, a new look. Whether it’s a new take on a color blocked dress at 3.1 Philip Lim or a clean lined boldly colored patchwork shirt and short from Proenza Schouler, resort brings fresh new shapes, new colorations and fabric mixes that work in both cooler and warmer climates.
It’s the time to show off beautiful new accessories, the perfectly crafted colored shoe, a new colored handbag and a chance to show off boldly beautiful jewels, always the perfect accessory.
Inspired by Modernist abstract form, shapes move away from the body: the boxy or a-line jacket, the cocoon shaped jacket or coat. Shifts and sheaths continue. Pencil skirts and a-lines add definition and shape. Shirts return, topping shorts and narrow or full pants. Mixed fabrics define new shapes.
New fabric mixes provide a fresh identity and shape to garments: wool/linen, satin/sequins, print/solid, as well as scuba and tech type fabrications
Off beat bold color dominates: yellow, orange, chartreuse, jade, plum, and chartreuse, along with primary red and white. Neons return, as an accent color or worn on their own, while graphic black and white continue in force.
Painterly patterns prevail: brush strokes, confetti prints, modern florals and graphic geometrics.
Beading, pailettes and metal element such as contrasting zippers, studs, grommets and add news. Contrast banding adds sportive style to ready to wear and accessories. Raglan sleeves define and reshape garments.
Geometrically shaped bags tell the story from oversized totes to clutches. Color and color blocked. Metal or plastic links top cross the body bags and shaped hobo styles.
Modern forms dominate in both polished and textured sterling silver from collars to hoops cuffs and pendants. Irregularly cut semi-precious stones create a strong presence in rings, drop earrings and bracelets.
Colorful and color blocked styles dominate in winter sandal in colored suede, metallic or leather. Patent leather makes a return in black, white or color.
