CHRISTOPHER JOHN ROGERS RESORT 2022 COLLECTION
The Cruise collection reimagines the house codes in a new way, and explores hope and the joy of dressing up.
June 1, 2021
By focusing on enjoyment and reinventing customer favorites, the Christopher John Rogers Resort 2022 collection deep dives into several motifs.
Sections of the collection were devoted to variations of punchy colors like slime green and tangerine orange, while rainbow prints with an optical illusion vibe made their way onto various separates. This gradual exploration of specific colors and patterns kept things playful.
When you have multiple looks in similar shades, the little things become paramount, and Rogers went out of his way to make each piece feel special. Rogers wants his pieces to trigger an emotional response in those who wear them, one that challenges the ephemerality of fashion’s seasonal cycle. “We want these to be things our customers cherish, that they can wear and live in,” he says. “These aren’t pieces you wear once and forget; they’re meant to be treasured, clothes that can grow and evolve with you over time.”
While there were several red carpet-worthy looks—a technicolor paillette-covered dress with flapper flair and a ballgown with an artsy barbecue theme print were two standouts—this season daywear almost eclipsed the after-hours fare. Casual suits that mixed pinstripes and plaid, LBDs with hints of rainbow knit worked into their pleats, and sweater dresses with candy-hued stripes were lighthearted fun and polished.
