A review of the resort-ready BEIGE spring-summer presentation for wherever you’re going.
April showers brought us hurriedly inside BEIGE for the much-anticipated spring-summer presentation. The invite-only event had the air of something not-to-be-missed, and a little rain could not dampen the excitement or deter its special guests from making a stylish appearance.
The space had been transformed for the show with a runway in the middle of the open storefront. Custom tote bags made by Aaron Stearns of Everything/Nothing were draped over each chair (only after the show would we greedily dump out its contents to discover a luxurious selection of swag from our favorite brands. Thank you, Ashley.). Large florals hung from the ceiling with bundles of branches stashed into cabinets and cubby holes adding texture and volume to the otherwise clean, minimalist aesthetic for which BEIGE is known.
Guests continued to arrive, enjoying passed hors d’oeuvres and glasses of champagne and perusing the well-curated clothing racks. Sandy linen, crisp cotton, burnt orange knit, black leather and shiny gold nylon gave us a sneak peek into what we would see on the runway.
When the lights flickered twice, it signaled to us: Take your seats. It’s showtime. The first item to appear was the shiny gold nylon one piece by Static Swimwear modeled by the exquisite Alana Lambert. The 90s straight neckline with thin spaghetti straps makes it a timeless basic that could easily go from beach to brunch under jeans or a paper bag pant like this one that also graced the runway. Other favorites included a breezy button-down white gauze dress by Xirena, an easy-to-wear summer staple that was paired with a Janessa Leone straw hat and Mari Giudicelli sandal. The only thing missing was an Aperol spritz in her hand, because this is THE uniform on holiday in Positano.
Another essential was the Nanushka knit dress in sand, a close-fitting, ankle-length number with front-tie around the waist for a flattering, feminine fit. The other coveted neutral was the oversized, belted Paris Georgia Sebastian blazer in natural linen for that chic, smart Elvira Hancock look from Scarface circa 1983. The real showstopper was the black belted Paris Georgia Soraya wiggle dress modeled by the elegant Amanda Seevers. Made from a sport stretch fabric, it hugs in all of the right places while the snakeskin belt adds an element of intrigue to the classic LBD.
As a whole, the collection floated down the runway and whisked us away to a fabulous vacation destination. Wherever these models were going, we wanted to go too. In addition to their design and styling, the beauty of these dresses and separates is that they are versatile, appropriate for day or night and can be dressed up or down.
Whether your plans include a summer in the South or in the South of France, these pieces will keep you feeling light and cool. Happy summering. Shop all new arrivals here.
