Scent of Summer

Summer is a mood, a feeling, a weightless sense of freedom affecting all of the senses.

 

As the world continues to move through a state of flux, Australian fashion house Aje’s Resort 22 runway collection offers a dreamscape of summer; a voyage to another time and place, where hearts ran free and souls ran wild. Entitled ‘Scent of Summer’, the collection is a rhapsody to long summers and the bygone beauty of the 1960’s; as imagined by Creative Directors Edwina Forest and Adrian Norris.

Juxtaposing the sublime and the bohemian, the opulent and carefree, ‘Scent of Summer’ encapsulates the jetsetter age; a timeless era of summers without end, spent in places of exotic desire.

Enveloped in colour, the Resort 22 collection playfully contrasts bold neons with sophisticated neutrals, featuring a palette where citrus meets blush, tangerine meets walnut, and fuchsia meets russet.

Ornate and unexpected embellishments transpire in floral sequining and hand beaded daisies applied on transparent organza in cut-out Sixties shapes, while handsewn guipure applique and hand ruched flowers in cotton poplin reflect a long-standing devotion to artisanal techniques and craftsmanship. Developed in-house, Aje created a braiding technique to bring unique textural details throughout the collection.
