Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet’s summer collection will make you feel like you’re walking on sunshine. Inspired by bohemian styles with a dash of tropical influences from Tulum, the collection mixes hippie prints and florals for a wardrobe that’s bursting with summer bonhomie.
Bohemian staples in the form of ikat prints, tie-dye and stripes can be seen throughout the collection and set off against bold shades of sunbeam, sienna, jade and off-white for a burst of sunshiny freshness.
Key items range from dresses and jumpsuits to tube and halter tops that are perfectly matched with denim shorts or skirts.
For a touch of femininity, the clothes are loaded with details such as embroidery, eyelet lace, side slits, ruffles and bows.
The fashion house has also collaborated with ACBC, an Italian company specializing in sustainable sportswear, to launch Thea and Terra’s platform sneakers, which are made from recycled materials.
