“ Going back to the true meaning of resort, Manish Arora offers a wardrobe that embodies a time to cut loose from winter’s real life and relax in his Resort 17 collection.
Drawing from the lushness of a paradisiac seaside for his inspiration, Manish Arora envisions his season as a perfect holiday moment where everything is right in the world. Just as moods are on the upswing as a holiday nears, this upbeat collection encapsulates the fairy tales we tell ourselves before going away, hearts filled with visions of endless beaches and perfect snapshots.
As flamingos fly overhead, light pink streaks against a blue sky, their flight drawing stripes over the crystalline waters. Under the foamy crest of a wave, a host of tropical fish can be see frolicking, dotted against the coral or swimming closer to take a look at visitors. Dressed up for the beach, a pretty doll takes her first steps onto warm, pristine sands.
Playful lines are highlighted through the use of natural materials, where the lush hand of silk coexists with the ease of washed cotton. Surface embellishments such as hand stitched dots on denim, delicate gold elements painted at the waist and neck or dotted along the structural seams of a skirt.
Manish Arora’s resort offers an effortless mien in its bold, youthful cuts. Silhouettes swing towards the Fifties, loosened through knotted waistlines and ribbed bands, for a nod towards these earliest forms of sportswear, elegant feminine shapes paired with comfortable materials ideal for downtime.
Day or night, life on Manish Arora’s Paradise Island is beautiful.”
