The Côte d'Azur has been getting a lot of love this season, but for Hanii Y
, the quintessential French resort destination is Granville—birthplace of Christian Dior—on the northwest coast. The Normandy seaside town inspired the palette of rich azures and cornflower blues, which were contrasted with sun-bleached neutrals. A great eyelet anorak was derived from photos of embroidered lace drapes, and the ropelike cording on dresses and jackets was a nod to the region's seafaring lifestyle.
Hanii Y has been off the New York fashion week schedule for several seasons while the brand's efforts were refocused. If Resort is any indication, the label is back on the right track.
