The 15-look Brandon Maxwell Resort 2021 collection was designed optimism, reinterpreting evening offerings into vibrant takes on modern sportswear.
“I wanted joy, optimism, excitement,” he said.
The collection features skirts are cut with the ease of sarongs, an emphasis on denim as well as roomy knit separates and clingy knit dresses.
Any flourishes are above the waist; capelet shoulders, décolleté-revealing cutouts, and the giant duchesse bow of the single evening dress. Color is the story here, from a vivid green suit to a baby pink shirtdress to chartreuse trousers.
“I think I’m a very sportswear, colorful, optimistic person, so I wanted it [the resort collection] to feel joy and happiness, and convey the message that the sun will shine again, because I believe that it will,” the designer said.
