Behind The Design: Desert Plantation Collection

Posted on

 —— Desert Plantation Collection: Spring 2018 —— 

Get set for an adventure this season as the latest runway trends are transporting us to the arid, otherworldly landscapes of the desert.

Desert-inspired colours, patterns, and textures are influencing designs in everything from modern architecture to home decor - and now they’re taking the fashion world by storm.

From the edge of Australia’s outback to the beautifully barren terrain of Palm Springs and the sandy plains of Morocco, our Desert Plantation collection draws inspiration from dreamy desert scenery and the unique flora native to these sun-bleached pockets of the globe.

This versatile apparel line captures the essence of these wild, expansive landscapes with distinctive colours, materials, and patterns: think neutral tones, pops of pastel, and eye-catching floral prints.

Combining earthy shades like hazel brown and sage green, the neutral colour palette of this collection is complemented by baby pink, soft yellow, and lavender for a refined, feminine appeal.

These warm, dusty colours are a welcome update to your summer wardrobe, so try swapping them out for your usual go-to pieces for an on-trend look this season.

The great thing about earth tones? You’re guaranteed to find several colours that will complement your skin tone and give your look an instant shot of radiance. And since these shades will never go out of style, you can wear these timeless staple pieces again and again.

Not only are earth-tone colours and pastel hues totally on trend this season, they’re also perfect for balmy summer temperatures. Designed with relaxed, flowy silhouettes and lightweight fabrics, the ultra-comfortable pieces in this collection are ideal for any summer activity or occasion.

Whether it’s a pair of green cargo capri pants to trade in for your favourite jeans or a completely new style that you’ve never worn before, there are so many ways to easily incorporate these pieces into your everyday look. Our breezy bell sleeve peasant blouse is flattering on every body type, while this gorgeous purple print top looks great dressed up or down.

And of course, no look is complete without the right accessories and final touches. To finish your desert-inspired outfit, choose statement bracelets, wedged sandals, and hoop earrings. Need a little inspiration? This purple beaded cuff will add sparkle and bold flair to your look.

If you’re after a vacation-ready outfit, a new go-to summer top, or you simply want to upgrade your wardrobe, look to these desert-chic pieces for inspiration. Click here to shop our Desert Plantation collection now!
