Cinq à Sept Resort 2020

Jane Siskin is one of those creatives who draws inspiration from life’s moments. In recent seasons, her collections have referenced — directly or otherwise — her journey to becoming a yoga instructor and the intimacy of writing letters. Her Seventies inspiration was similarly personal, as she related how what she wore during that era felt impossibly current for today. She teased how resort is just a taste for what’s to come for spring.

The lineup encompassed several moods, offering everything from casual canvas army jackets decorated with sequin patches to boudoir-inspired cocktail dresses with lace-up bustiers and peekaboo lace trim. A spicy red two-piece dress with a ruffled skirt — the quintessential party dress — invoked a distinctively Caribbean flair.
