alice McCALL’s Resort ’17 collection, Between Us is a story book of vintage silhouettes and romantic fabrications. The collection features the types of garments you see in old photographs and paintings at your grandmother’s family home. The pants you wish your mother had held onto and lingerie lace dresses found only in 1950s black and white films that exude nothing but innate sexiness. A dress up box of wearable collectibles.
A dusty rose lace blouse with a high neckline and handkerchief sleeves is the perfect nod to Victorian elegance, with just the right amount of modern.
The narrative travels into the '50s with nautical striped twin sets and cropped brodierie pants that flare out ever so slightly at the bottom. A striped structured cropped top that skims the décolletage is paired with a matching A-line mini skirt to create the perfect balance of flirty and sexy.
A wide legged flare pant styled with a deep V camisole is the epitome of chic and a subtle homage to the 1970s disco nights.
alice McCALL Resort '17 so gracefully walks the line between vintage and modern- making the collection's title, Between Us, more than fitting.
