It’s not always evident these days what it means to celebrate ‘resort wear.’ With temperatures shifting globally and weather patterns completely out of whack, the traditional notion of resort fashion and glamorous jet set travel has, in some respects, gone by the wayside. More ‘attuned’ fashion designers are adapting by creating sustainable, trans-seasonal collections where customers can enjoy their wardrobe investments throughout the entire year, regardless of destination or agenda. Such is the case with designer John Patrick ORGANIC and his gorgeous Resort 2008 Collection. It’s no surprise that ORGANIC is an exotic medley of sustainable textiles combined with impeccable down home tailoring. Who better to turn to when it seems as if we are at our last resort for sustainable fashion and truly sound eco-solutions?
John Patrick ORGANIC creates clothes that are feast to gaze upon, as well as being smartly constructed and totally versatile when it comes to ready-to-wear separates and season-to-season essentials. With original designs featuring the prettiest antique coin and floral lace, recycled floral embroidery fabrics, 100% organic cotton, washed surplus cotton, 100% cashmere knitwear, lightweight organic cotton jersey, and jackets of vegetable tanned leather, every moment of having ORGANIC next to your skin is truly the ultimate indulgence or holiday.
Eco-luxury coupled with enviro-responsibilty is really the future of well-edited dressing, and we love that John Patrick advocates our “seeing beyond the makings of current trends and robo-consumer behavior.” And the good news, whether you decide to stay at home for your next simulated resort-like experience or travel (carbon-footprint free) to see the world as it is rapidly changing, you can be rest assured that some designers are artfully weaving their way into the very idea of future-forward travel and shifting consumer trends.
