Now that all of the holiday festivities are over, some of you, like me, may experience some Holiday Postpartum. I find having some Resolutions (read: a trip somewhere warm) help with this transition to the New Year and help get me through the cold, short, gray days.
Enter the Resort Collections. This time of year, all the bright, pretty, wispy looks from Designer’s Resort 2018 collections begin to arrive in stores and this reminds us that the sun will shine and we will be warm once again. Now all we need is a warm place to dream about while we wait for spring to arrive in our town. This year, Periwinkle is excited to introduce several new designers to the stylish ladies of Old Town that are perfect for your Warm Weather Getaway this winter.
When I saw the name of Poupette, St. Barth, I knew I was going to love this line. St. Barth’s has become my favorite vacation spots to visit and the line is just as carefree and beautiful as the island. Poupette St Barth is the love story of a woman and an island in the French West Indies. Poupette arrived on this lost paradise by boat in 1979 and never left. 16 years later, she created her own line of clothing. Poupette’s extraordinary feel for color, energy, and movement translate into clothes that are feminine, romantic and playful and her creations quickly became a favorite among St Barth’s elite clients. Numerous celebrities have been photographed in Poupette St. Barth.
Today, the brand has become iconic, synonymous with the St. Barth lifestyle and French “Joie de Vivre”. Poupette knows what women want to wear; comfortable and beautifully designed unique pieces, cut from superior fabrics, which make them look and feel their best, while remaining consistent with her philosophy of freedom and her love for St Barth.
Hutch is another new line we have discovered at Periwinkle. It was launched in 2010 by New York native Daniel Saponaro, Hutch is a women’s contemporary line designed and produced in NYC and recognized for easy, feminine pieces that are bold yet flattering and versatile. This line takes you from work, to party, to play, looks for every day of the week.
MDS Stripes describes its look as celebrating a lifelong love affair with blue and white stripes. Mark D. Sikes launches his first American sportswear collection inspired by stylish women. Made in California of 100% fine cotton, MDS Stripes brings modern sophistication and a unique twist to the classic stripe.
The collection ranges from wide and narrow striped knits in soft cottons, to custom ball skirts made from Italian men’s shirting fabrics, striped canvas and leather bags and signature cotton scarves. Signature details such as gold buttons and charms, pocketing, drawstrings and ruching bring to life a modern spirit on timeless styles. A unique combination of classic and feminine, MDS Stripes continues Mark’s dedication to all things beautiful.
