For the Resort 2021 season, PORTS 1961 interprets the spirit of the French bourgeois, a play on nautical details, resulting in a collection of easy to wear modern wardrobe staples.
Nautical tailoring is playfully mixed up with asymmetrical rows of hammered gold buttons. Utility codes are mixed with femininity, in unexpected fabrics, colours and prints.
Familiar prints are distorted to morph into something new. Bold polkadots, whimsical and delicate florals with dragonflies and geometric distortions inspired by the French Orphism art movement.
Elsewhere, colour blocked silk cady dresses and poplin separates in banana yellow and muted pinks make for a juxtaposition that’s strong and gentle, in equal measure. For evening, liquid metallic dresses, layers of lace ruffle and sharp tuxedo jumpsuits suggest something both familiar and modern.
For accessories, the Astrid, Anouk and Anika bags, light and versatile, feature the new PORTS 1961 ‘double style’ concept, with pockets on both the front and back, offering added functionality and ease. Heirloom jewels mix pearls and silver, with modern links and chains for a feeling that is both timeless and today.
