With the Holidays just around the corner and Vancouver’s dismal Tim Burton-esque weather, it feels somewhat unnatural to be discussing swim and resort wear. Nonetheless, with designers releasing their Spring/Summer and Resort collections, it is clear that the season ahead will be one of vibrant pattern, vivacious colour, unconventional silhouettes, and an overall air of whimsy. So whether one is escaping winter by spending the holidays in Barbados (we are jealous) or is simply seeking summertime wardrobe, nothing warms one up quite as well as perusing through collections of beach and resort apparel.
Nothing embodies the happy-go-lucky spirit of the season more than Poupette & Saint Barth’s newest collections, exotically named Aruba, Samoa, and Eden, Moorea and Belize. Each collection differs in mood and character, and yet remains true to the brand’s relaxed and low-key aesthetic.
