This resort season, Bill Blass tapped into a feminine, casually elegant range that reimagines cool Americana. With 25 new styles adding to their offering, Bill Blass customers will have many colorful and sparkly new options for the holiday season.
Creative director Chris Benz has pulled through style cues from the brand’s history, such as using canvas eyelet, which references a core fabrication from the archive. Benz says, “Besides the past, I’m always looking forward towards where and how women are living their lives and what feels interesting. I think now more than ever, each style must feel hand-made, special, and unique”.
This attention to creating ‘specialness’ is seen in embellishment in many treatments: leather flowers, sequins, rhinestone strass and patchwork. Standout fabrications include bleached and tie-dyed denim, snake prints, and canvas with distressed edges. Touches of clear vinyl and embroidered eyelet elevate the new Bill Blass footwear for the fashion-conscious wearer.
Bill Blass Resort 2017/18 will be available from November 2017, from select department stores, specialty boutiques and through billblass.com.
