Coral Is­land

With sum­mer ap­proach­ing rapidly, we can’t clear our minds of the bright ocean wa­ters and a fun-filled ex­cur­sion to a sandy beach

The shade of coral has been a long-time fash­ion favourite for the warmer months. But the ac­tual coral reefs? Per­haps it’s their sea­son to shine. Print ex­traor­di­nairess Mary Ka­trant­zou ven­tures out with de­signs com­pris­ing com­plex over­lays of em­broi­deries on dresses and trouser sep­a­rates. Mean­while, Stella Mccart­ney takes a sim­i­lar ap­proach, and rein­ter­prets the spongy sea crea­tures as prints and em­broi­dery on breezy, flow­ing tu­nics and dresses with a busy mashup of other con­trast­ing pat­terns. Keep­ing with her fuss-free aes­thetic, Mccart­ney bal­ances out the busy prints with oc­ca­sional translu­cent sheer pan­els and a sim­ple off-the­body sil­hou­ette. When it comes to ac­ces­sories, Ser­gio Rossi’s col­lec­tions with coral have a graphic ap­peal and re­sem­bles Matisse’s famed pa­per cut-outs.
