For the most part, resort is all about billowing caftans, tropical prints, and a whole lot of skin showing. It’s practically the only season in the fashion calendar that designers only have one woman in mind: the one who’s off to a luxurious vacation in some exotic location. But Winnie Beattie had a different woman in mind for her resort 2019 collection for Warm. This season, her customer isn’t jetting off to the Mediterranean or South America for a few sun-soaked days. She’s actually in major cities attending elegant affairs and cocktail parties. Instead of tropical prints, the Warm woman is dressed in romantic florals, almost baroque or Victorian-esque in design, complete with higher necklines and puff sleeves. She’s also into pajama-dressing this season, made out of the silkiest satins and the easiest of jacquards. And although this customer isn’t at the beach or on the yacht, it’s still clear that she’s still having a great time.
