Those of us who haven’t been lucky enough to go south this winter can’t wait to at least wear something representative of palm trees, parrots, orchids and lapping waves. I’d lay odds fruit cocktails are slowly on the rise. With warm weather, the appearance of these print patterns heralds vacations, insinuates rhythm and waits for tans. They’re pale and bright, large leafed and mini, but definitely heat seeking.
Bright blue sky and mirrored orchid pink-tropical sufficiently covered to wear in town, even, feeling particularly cheery, to the office. Sleeveless, just above the knee. Zipper fastening at the back. Waistband gives you a shape. Add a bright belt for emphasis. Imagine it with a seriously yellow bag. Cotton/Elastane. $115.00
Odd, but they don’t look congested. Terrific, multicolored tropical print grounded by the black. This pair can be dressed up with a black strapless silk top or down with red or white and cropped cotton. Have fun with the jewelry- be colorful and or excessive. Stretch Cotton/Elastane blend. Mid rose, flared leg. Belt loops, back welt pockets, creased legs. Concealed hook and zipper fastening at the waist. Free shipping and returns for US orders. $775.00
The subdued color makes these look kind of retro. If you’re into khakis, olives, straw and wood this season, these are for you. Also great mixed with snakeskin or metallic accessories. Exemplify the spirit without announcing your arrival. Cotton/Elastane white ground short with floral mirror print sides. Zipper fly. Machine washable. $70.00
Light and crisp in appearance. A bit more sophisticated. Can be worn with confidence on his yacht or wandering the villages of Crete. Keep the top simple for a fresh look. Four pocket pleated front, cuffed hem, zippered closure; fits at natural waist. 100% Cotton. $325.00
