Right now, we’re all hunkering down and fulfilling our social responsibilities by staying home. But just because we haven’t left our couches in a while, doesn’t mean that we have to sacrifice the joys of dressing up.
And thanks to these fashion brands, we don’t have to.
Since fashion is partly driven by fantasy, we’re making full use of these new summer releases to dream of our next great adventure.
01 | Paris, with Roger Vivier
The French capital has always delivered plenty of inspiration to designers and fashion houses everywhere, and Roger Vivier is joining that roster. In an homage to the brand’s home turf, the Vivier Loves Paris collection comprises of three items: two shoulder bags and a pair of sandals. The bags both feature a glittering rhinestone-studded buckle and are available in a warm shade of raspberry red or a neutral gay. Meanwhile, the sandals bear the words “Paris” and “Love” in a nod to the city’s romantic reputation.
02 | Maldives, with Louis Vuitton
Yearning to hit the beach and feel the seawater wash between your toes? Louis Vuitton’s new collection can help tide you over in the meantime. Featuring a shibori tie-dye technique, the summer line of RTW and accessories are the perfect antidote for homebound sunseekers. Vibrant shades of indigo and sky blue clash together to evoke the crystalline ocean, while beetroot and fuchsia blend together like the evening sky. On top of bags and shoes, collection also comes with a selection of chic swimsuits, scarves, hats and other seaside essentials too.
03 | New York, with Tory Burch
The vibrant rush of summer in New York is best captured in Tory Burch’s collection. Urban separates such as linen wide-legged pants and shrunken knits are paired up with bohemian florals and nautical stripes, while seafaring knotted ropes double as belts for clean-cut dresses. Functional, contemporary and versatile – great for every city dweller.
04 | Wales, with Peng Tai
The coastal towns of Wales are often a mixture of brooding, romantic landscapes coupled with calm scenery and quietness – all a far cry from the busy metropolitan lives that we lead in Singapore. So if calm and serenity appeal to you right now, then Peng Tai’s line is the solution. Soft, languorous shapes are rendered in light-as-air fabrics, while colours veer towards a palette of blushing pinks and moody blacks. Pieces often looked lived-in, with poetically ruched surfaces, intentionally-placed crumples and looser silhouettes all signalling a return to ease and comfort.
05 | Amalfi Coast, with Celine
Coastal getaways require a coastal wardrobe, and Celine has some options for you to consider. From the brand’s Summer 2020 Raffia collection comes a selection of woven accessories that channel the laidback charm one would associate with strolling around the Amalfi Coast. For the ladies, wicker bucket bags and canvas sneakers make perfect companions to your summer dresses, while the guys can spiffy up in a straw boater hat and a slogan-bearing raffia tote bag.
06 | Marrakech, with Saint Laurent
Desert attire, but make it fashion. For Summer 2020, Saint Laurent brings you back to the heady passageways of Morroco with a wardrobe of tailored outerwear and easy “throw on and head out” separates. Button-down denim shirts, white shorts, and cotton poplin blouses all form the basis for a chic adventurer’s outfit while finishing touches of knee-high boots, layered gold necklaces, and logo-fronted shoulder bags round off everything you need for a gallivant in the souk.
