Bucking trends, Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos went all-out for Resort, showing their first ever full collection (i.e., not just the knits they're known for). This is a big step for a small brand, and it was executed with confidence and clarity. Now the customer who falls for a cashmere cardigan with chain details at the neckline, a featherweight pullover, or a cashmere robe coat with overlock detailing won't have to search elsewhere for just the right legging (Lutz & Patmos' are thick and tailored), skirt, or harem pant. Also new this season was the mixing of wovens and knits—done especially well on a silk-front tank. The duo even threw in some accessories, including finely woven scarves and beaded collars and belts.
Lutz & Patmos' latest guest collaboration—with the model Natalia Vodianova—resulted in an unexpectedly creative garment: a long tube dress that converts into a short funnel-necked number. Fifty dollars of the purchase of this design will be donated to Vodianova's Naked Heart Foundation. Looks like Lutz & Patmos is thinking big all around.
