Yesterday, Lilly Pulitzer presented its Resort 365 collection, “Life Under The Printed Palms,” on the rooftop at Mr. Purple in NYC. Among the many models who were parading around in the versatile, colorful, printed pieces were two Victoria’s Secret girls Bridget Malcolm and Vita Sidorkina, plus models Madison Headrick and Nikayla Novak, and Harley Viera-Newton on DJ duty.
Each cover-up, dress, jumper, and separate was designed with an eternal summer state of mind, and the result were looks that were beachy in the Lilly Palm Beach way, but wearable for the less oceanfront occasion, too. (Fun fact: All pieces are lined, because Lilly was popularly indifferent to wearing underwear). Mods got their beachy glow thanks to Sarah Lucero for Stila Cosmetics, Sophie Evans for St. Tropez, and DryBar.
Following the presentation, Michelle Kelly, CEO, and Mira Fain, EVP of product design and development, invited an exclusive set of guests to an intimate outdoor dinner, including photographer Ben Watts, blogger Blair Eadie, fashion stylist Gabriela Langone, and Natalie Suarez. The delicious menu offered shaved zucchini and avocado to start, a choice of roasted snapper, chicken with marble potatoes and grilled leeks, or a chef’s choice veggie option, and a citrus olive oil caked with coconut curd and blood orange sorbet. The spread was as colorful as the collection!
