Tigerlily: AIIIA RESORT 20
Tigerlily’s Resort 20, AIIIA collection was inspired by the holiday buzz of 1960s Hawaii. Rewind, unwind. Feel the pull of the sheltered bay, where the tiki bar is always open and it’s never too cold to swim. You might even see Elvis.
The mood is playful and fresh, building on ice-cream pastels, aqua, sunset pinks and oranges. There are high voltage moments, with a hand-crafted honesty to these pieces, from the beautiful cotton hand-loom weaves produced the traditional way in India to the bespoke trims.
Coconut buttons, raffia accessories and retro shirring add a nostalgic touch, played back with ginghams and crochet. A tassel here, a ruffle there, but the look’s not too sweet. There’s a sexiness to silhouettes, a strength, and above all a sense of optimistic possibility. The holidays aren’t over; they’ve only just begun.
Jewellery and accessories effortlessly meld retro quirk - charismatic raffia clutches and bamboo basket bags - with the go-anywhere sophistication of timeless squashy leather totes and logoed purses. In summary, the mood is way too exciting to check in. See you when we land.
