For her first resort outing, Edeline Lee said she wanted to strip everything back and highlight her brand’s signatures: Feminine silhouettes with a strong, modernist attitude.

Key shapes such as midi button-down skirts, draped shirts and elegant A-line belted dresses were updated in monochrome summer shades such as icey blues, bold reds or simple all-white looks.

Lee also maintained a more feminine, playful attitude by experimenting with all things ruffled and ruched, adding heavy ruffled trims – some were looped multiple times – on the necks of cotton-poplin shirts and georgette dresses or on the hems of slim pants and pencil skirts.

She said that by creating more weighted fabrics and playing with heavy ruching and doubled ruffles, she ensured she could incorporate decorative elements into her range without losing the attitude of modernity.

Lee is also putting a lot of focus on form and offered expertly cut tailored suits and A-line dresses that she described as “poised and deceptively simple” yet designed to flatter a wide range of body types.
