Designed and developed in Los Angeles, High Summer 2021 reimagines surf and turf for today’s world: California-cool meets city-slick, with a focus on wearability. Sleek swimwear sits alongside effortless everyday pieces—like lightweight button-downs and easy trousers—created to be worn in any location, on any day. Rigid materials and constricting fits are eschewed for semi-sheer fabrics and fluid silhouettes that highlight the feminine form. Monochromatic looks stay true to the brand’s signature simplicity, and feel refreshingly understated. Rendered in a neutral palette punctuated by cool glacier blue, these styles serve as a breath of fresh air for any wardrobe.
The season’s ready-to-wear embraces a slower way of life and celebrates the beauty of personal style with easy pieces made to be worn by our woman, and not the other way around. A strapless top and flowing trousers pair for a streamlined look. Dresses and skirts skim the body in diaphanous fabrics with elegant, below-the-knee hems. A relaxed button-down is worn with cropped trousers for a fresh take on daily dressing. New pleated fabrics add a twist of texture to timeless silhouettes, while an eco-friendly chiffon reveals a hint of skin. Three styles debut with this collection, expanding upon the brand’s recognizable ease: the sculptural Monaco Square Neck Top; the languid Ray Bias Cut Midi Skirt; the ankle-length, wear-everywhere Beach Trouser. Midi-dresses with signature tie-detailing, laid-back rompers, and more perennial favorites reappear this season in updated shades.
High Summer’s swimwear was designed to feel equally empowering and effortless. Two new styles—a one piece and bikini top—feature a strong, one-shouldered design inspired by Ancient Greek sculptures. From iconic underwire bikinis referencing Brigitte Bardot to sleek triangle tops, the silhouettes range in fit but remain consistently timeless. High-waisted bottoms flatter the body with a retro sensibility, while square and plunging necklines finish one pieces with modern cutouts and tie-waist details. Grounded in a classic palette and accented by earthy colors—espresso, olive, sandstone—playful animal prints, bold stripes, and a striking glacier blue, these styles are the perfect foundation for the season’s ready-to-wear and can be worn seamlessly throughout the day. As always, all suits are eco-friendly, sustainable, and crafted with Italian fabrics featuring built-in UV 50+ protection.
