A comfortable minimalist androgyny is the heart of Nili Lotan. Creating wearable relax fit pieces that hang on the body with a sleepy sensual elegance, her garments reveal the strength of the woman beneath them. Citing Patti Smith and Joni Mitchell as inspirations, this understated silent strength should come as no surprise. The collection for fall was aptly title Blue 1971 but in her offering for Resort 2017 I am detecting more of a nineties edge with a bit of nod to the eighties. The wide cut man tailored trousers have given way to dropped waist harm style pants and jackets have gotten edgier and more playful in fluffy bombers and fringed motos. Her quintessential slip dress is also present and can be seen a variety of colors and textures from velvet to leopard print to her trademark satin. And the feminine factor is expressed exquisitely in a plethora of filmy chiffon blouses of black lace, camouflage and pale pastels. An olive green parachute coat grounds the collection and warm knit sweaters add a touch of utilitarian charm—and help to round out this line up for Resort’s in between seasonal whims.
