Planet Blue Holiday 2015

These are the coats on offer at Zara

Wrapping yourself in the coat trends of the season isn’t too difficult a task: not when high street retailers like Zara are on top of things. Their latest outerwear styles span classic wool coats to 1970s style blanket crochet cardigans.

Lack of Color S/S ’16 look book

The brand may be called Lack of Color, but there’s little lacking from their spring / summer 2016 lookbook. Gorgeous muse Cailin Russo wears chic fedoras and easy straw hats from the collection, titled “Las Palmas”. The imagery – shot with a faded retro vibe by Jason Lee Parry – makes you want to be right there poolside.

Ellery Resort ’16 look book

Amanda Murphy stars in the Resort 2016 look book from Australian label Ellery. Pure white tailoring and ruffle details stand out against a tropical backdrop and the kind of vibrant aquamarine makeup that anticipates the spring 2016 beauty trends. Click the gallery to view more.

Bikyni Resort ’15 look book

So simple and yet so refreshing, Bikyni credit themselves with having reinvented the classics, and it’s credit well deserved. Minimalist swimsuits like these – that aren’t “overdesigned or overpriced” – need little introduction. The brand’s resort 2015 collection does it’s own talking. Titled “Castaway”, you can see more at the gallery.

Planet Blue brings the “Night Fever”

Velvet dresses, floral rompers, lace and fringing: Planet Blue’s holiday 2015 collection has exactly the kind of looks that get you in the mood to party. Photographed by Kimberly Gordon (of Wildfox fame), the imagery stars Dutch beauty Roosmarijn De Kok with makeup by Matisse.
