Lebanese design duo George Azzi and Assaad Osta have launched their AZZI & OSTA Spring/Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection “Holiday”.
Conjuring the image of sparkling beaches, bright blue seas and sweet sorbets the collection represents the holidays we are all dreaming of. Feminine and dreamy this colourful collection is filled with hope and optimism. There is a nod to the sixties era with a playful spirit combined with a modern touch.
A colour palette of marshmallow pink, sherbet lemon, powder blue and Hamptons white is a summer’s dream.
The collection takes inspiration from the vintage American travel magazine; Holiday. The publication was famed for its stunning photography and literary prowess – with writing from heavyweights like John Steinbeck, Jack Kerouac, Truman Capote, Joan Didion and Ernest Hemingway.
Silhouettes bridge the gap between relaxed and sleek. Gently-flared jumpsuits, exuberant bell sleeves and deep pleats create lightness, movement and joy. Tailored separates feature clean, asymmetric cuts juxtaposed with billowing cape-like sleeves.
Softly structural elements appear throughout the collection – long tunic tops are reinvented with unexpected cascades of ruffles, exaggerated cocoon sleeves revolutionise column dresses and geometric cut-outs transform necklines. A white lace jumpsuit is impeccably nipped at the waist by a glamorously oversized bow.
Elegant dresses are cool and minimal despite their detailed embellishments. A delicate tulle gown features dramatic Mikado ruffles, while one floor-grazing dress marries a guipure lace skirt, is inspired by ocean waves with a floral lace bodice.
Waistlines are decorated with embroidered elements, while necklines bloom with flower appliqués and straps and finished with sparkling vintage accents.
AZZI & OSTA’s SS21 collection is available to pre-order online at azziandosta.com.
