I dream of Africa.

Thank you, Sophie Theallet. Wishful thinking, but every piece would fit seamlessly into my wardrobe. In  short, the fluency and generosity of spirit seen in this collection was filled with excellent instincts, African inspiration, diversity and celebration.

The halter-neck dresses, gowns, tiers of feathers, raffia strips, ruffled silk dresses and jumpsuits all eluded to confidence and beauty. My favourite season and line, I can't get enough.

With Simkhai's new Resort collection, you can tell he is settled. He notes that he was inspired by his move to L.A., desert landscapes, minimalist architecture, and a little bit of the American pastoral. This collection seemed thoughtful and personal, with pieces that showed off both his technical skills and his eye for strong silhouettes.  As a whole, the lineup felt organic and well conceived. Simkhai hopes to work on his future collections from inside his own L.A.-based home studio, which he’s currently constructing in the attached garage. He built an impressive business in a relatively short amount of time, and as his work gets more personal, as it did this season, there’s nowhere to go but up. Congratulations JS on your new marriage! xo

Mara Hoffman is dedicated to activism and women's issues and we are grateful for it!


Let's be clear, Mara creates the coolest vibes in her clothes. Now they're even cooler as she seeks to use sustainable fabrics like tencel, cotton, linen. She said the most interesting thing recently, "we don’t need to offer 12 options in one fabrication anymore," she explained. "When you produce all these samples, and a certain percentage of [the pieces] might not even get produced, it just leads to more waste." 

Her lineup continued in the soft, breezy aesthetic Hoffman has been building since last Resort, with an emphasis on clothes you can buy and wear all year round. "This idea that Resort should only be for women going on vacations in November and December . . . 


You know the rest.
