Rather than having a key point of inspiration or theme behind a collection, Sea designers Monica Paolini and Sean Monahan’s starting point always revolves around the fabrics. For their newest season, Paolini explained, “We wanted to make sure we focused on what you really want to wear during this time,” on top of the fact that it is the longest season their merchandise is held in stores before going on sale.

The vast resort collection offered plenty of slick denim offerings as well as an abundance of ruffles, on sleeves, dresses and on signature jumpsuits. Other highlights included corsetry details and a bright blue gingham print, as per a great strapless top with front tie over a white button down and a sporty, pleated sweatshirt. Overall, the newly polished aesthetic and enlarged color palette was a standout for the brand.
