From New York to Copenhagen (and Back). Sea Resort 2020

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?

Portimão

Portimão is perfect in terms of visiting the Portuguese sea-side. Not only the local market is rich in freshly caught fish and fruits coming from the nearest orchards, but the  beach here is… a dream. Just as the restaurants, villas and pretty much everything. I can actually see myself living here, picking oranges and shells for days.

By The Sea

How big, how blue, how beautiful
How big, how blue, how beautiful 

Now there’s a few things we have to burn
Set our hearts ablaze, and every city was a gift
And every skyline was like a kiss upon the lips
And I was making you a wish

Florence + The Machine How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

I’ve spent my May Day by the Baltic sea, on a remote, wild beach… and I felt like in heaven. So quiet and peaceful. Relax – reading Vivienne Westwood’s biography, drinking lemonade taken from the hotel and feeling the breeze in my hair. Priceless!
