Lilly Pulitzer is known for having resortwear 365 days a year, so for resort 2018, the collection was based around living in that Palm Beach paradise. “Doing a resort collection is special to us because while we do resort every season, there’s a nuance to all of it. When you get to the true resort time frame, you see a richer color palette, there’s more special occasion dressing,” the team said of the latest collection. The lineup was filled with classic Lilly silhouettes — wrinkle free, easy cotton jersey dresses (offered in a-line, straight and swing silhouettes), caftans and flowy tunics. This season silhouettes popped in jewel tones crafted from their in-house painted prints and colors.
Recently, Pulitzer has been putting an emphasis on easily packable collections that have, “everything you need, from the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep…every need of your resort day [is there].” This thought could be seen throughout, from a luxe lounge velour jumpsuit and white denim jeans with painted gold palm tree motif meant for easy day-dressing to embellished and sleeve treated tunics and dresses for evening cocktail parties.
A nice surprise evolved from a tiny, 10-piece capsule in the collection of black dresses, skirts, tops and pants, appropriately titled, “Onyx-spected.” The selection is appropriately adorned in true Pulitzer fashion, with pops of brightly colored embroideries, embellishments and prints.
