Ohne Titel is one of many young labels adding Resort to its offerings this year. No wonder all the kids are doing it: Resort has the longest shelf life in stores and often outsells both Spring and Fall. In addition to the potential business boost, designers Flora Gill and Alexa Adams wanted to use this new opportunity to show "best sellers and pieces we've become known for with our fans." A long vest with a sporty zipper could double as a dress and had that modern, architectural drape that has become a signature for the duo. Ditto goes for the gray and white banded jacket with an asymmetrical collar. Gill and Adams cited Middle Eastern women's fashion as an influence here. That came across in silhouettes that had loose volume up top and were leaner through the hips and legs. A double-faced silk blouse that came color-blocked in cobalt and white, for example, was tucked into slim-fitting leggings, while a luxe knit sweatshirt was paired with an opaque miniskirt that had a sheer, to-the-knee overlay. Ohne Titel will benefit from more accessible and streamlined collections like this going forward.
