Do you already feel summertime sadness in the air? Although there’s a long way until spring comes finally around, it is definitely about time to give ourselves something to look forward to. Regarding this, it’s usually up to the many resort collections to rush to our aid, making our future wishlists grow bigger and bigger. And today there’s one more reason to look forward to spring and the warmer months: Dolores Promesas. The Spanish label has just launched its resort 2016 collection, which one can’t help but fall in love with.
On the whole, the Dolores Promesas resort 2016 line-up is a colorful amalgam of uber-feminine pieces, where ‘fun’ is definitely the key word. The collection’s protagonists are the many abstract prints with a certain retro feel, through which rabbits, umbrellas, stars and even birds will meet the needs of those who are trying to start taking themselves less seriously come the New Year. The line-up also radiates late Sixties vibes, reminding us of all the good things those years brought us, such as palazzo pants, bold hues and t-shirt mini dresses.
The main colors of the collection are those used in the prints, namely orange, light blue and green, with only a few dark and white touches. When the colors don’t join forces to create dreamy creatures or astronomic patterns, they give rise to some cheerful abstract paintings that, besides reminding of Pollock’s works, make it also possible to play with different combinations of styles and colors. One could, in fact, either play with contrasts, pairing those patterns with one of the collection’s main solid-colored sweaters, or just opt for a totally different print.
However, Dolores Promesas’ creativity doesn’t stop here. It is in the many different lines and cuts that the brand is showing its best design solutions. Although the collection is undeniably Sixties-inspired, it also shares its very own late Sixties views on fashion, updating those glamorous years with asymmetrical cuts, cropped Nehru shirts and oversized suits. Then, to add an exotic touch, it even features some kimono cardigans that, along with the many prints, create a good contrast with the collection’s feminine dresses. Loads of pleats, as well as wide flared mini and midi skirts enhance the waist, catapulting us in contemporary and urban version of Grease.
Pointy-toe and rounded stiletto shoes, as well as open-toe sandals, complete each one of the outfits adding a strong pop-art touch to the collection. Last but not least, the Dolores Promesas resort 2016 collection has some room for the hippie style too, celebrating the Year of Love with a vivid orange ruched maxi dress that will make anyone feel like a true diva!
