Last season, the Galvan team evolved their signature, luxe, long and lean designs into fantastic knitwear from day-to-night. For the resort season, the brand evolved its core DNA, noted as “a strong, confident woman, minimalist mind, sensuous curves” by cofounder and creative director Anna-Christin Haas, into a (more categorically) robust ready-to-wear collection.

Resort was rooted in four pillars: a fresh ’90s-inspired leopard motif; a sculptural, scalloped shape; the idea of sculpturalism, and the introduction of ’90s-inspired men’s wear suiting. 

The look: Empowered sensuality.

Quote of note: “This marks a new beginning and new era for Galvan. Over the past six months, we’ve invested an immense amount of time and effort into the evolution of our brand. We looked into what was needed in the market, what the customer wanted from us and what feeling we wanted to create. It also became very clear to us that after all these years, the core idea and driving force behind Galvan is and was to create effortless female confidence,” Haas explained.

Key pieces: Knitwear developed into evening gowns with jewelry details or intriguing, sculptural cuts, like a standout body-hugging viscose jersey black number with a gold chain and freshwater pearl strung across the back’s circular cutout detail; the introduction of suede in signature Galvan shapes (stretch high-waisted trousers or a new burgundy trench); updated luxe knits for day, like a long blue cardigan lounge dress; oversize, boxy suiting and coats (or a cropped tuxedo jacket, which was originally designed for actress Helena Zenga for the Golden Globes).

The takeaway: Cofounder and business development director Katherine Holmgren, described the collection best as, “It’s sensual, but also not vulgar; comfortable and more about making you feel and look your best.”
