The Ruth Bader Ginsburg-inspired collars are a sort of signature in Sea‘s free-spirited resort 2020 collection, but not only. The New York-based brand has it all, from over-sized sleeves and prairie dresses to chunky knits and floral tea-dresses. Inspired by Danish style, designers Monica Paolini and Sean Monahan swapped out their usual florals for foulard patterns, adding a new polish to their lineup of city essentials. Paolini said Copenhagen was a major influence. She traveled there last winter and was struck by the way the locals girls layer colors and textures in the winter. The designers are traveling there in August to participate in Copenhagen Fashion Week, which might be a hint: is the brand expanding in Europe?
