Let’s get ready for summer and discover the two key trends, POPPY HILL and ZEST!
It’s in the midst of summertime’s simplicity that we relish in the therapeutic quality of nature. Taking comfort in the knowledge that Winter’s bleak and barren landscape always leads to Spring’s blossoming flourishes, we never take for granted the fleeting beauty and humility of abundance. It’s from this place of gratitude that we find Poppy Hill. A magical place filled with wildflowers, it’s a touchstone for the soul as it demonstrates the delicacy and ephemeral quality of nature, making this moment in time all that more precious. Inspired by the lush bouquet of nature, the color palette is rich in vegetal greens and sun-dappled yellows while vibrant pinks, purples, blues, and oranges mimic the vitality of flower petals. The aesthetic is romantic yet humble, incorporating flowing frocks with more modest gingham, sustainable cotton, and barely-there details, showcasing the strength, fragility, and transient beauty of nature and life.
In a visualization of emotion, Zest celebrates a child’s uninhibited display of feelings and the unfiltered, and often effusive, way they express joy and wonder. Capturing life through a child’s lens, this hyped and happy aesthetic is captured through intense, serotonin-packed brights that boost our mood and spark all the senses. The touchy-feely materials, from gummy textures to shiny performance stretch, continue to illicit elation and awe, lending to a dabble in the active realm while flashbacks of childhood nostalgia bubble up with a ’90s twist in the form of baggy pants, cropped tops, oversized tees, and track pants.
