Womenswear celebrates the female form with defined waists, full skirts and cut away detailing. Flower power reigns supreme with English roses, peonies and cherry blossoms in full bloom on feminine 50s-style silhouettes. The ‘Rosebug’ print, featuring bright roses, bugs and butterflies, appears on everything from cropped jackets to shorts and from peep-toe heels to clutches. The floral theme continues with laser cut appliqué and watercolor tulip prints, adding interest to dresses, tops and flirty shorts. The ladylike trend continues with pleated maxi dresses flowing in the vivid and vibrant tangerines and blues that are the colors of the season.
In contrast, a more structured silhouette emerges with clean lines and color-blocking, which are played out in a modern minimal palette of blood orange, dove grey, ivory and black. Tailoring details are evident on jumpsuits, simple shifts and soft separates whilst origami folds, lace trims and pleating add structure.

In a way, Ted’s menswear collection is more like a self-portrait than just a collection, capturing all the elements of his personality. Larger than life, the menswear collection bursts with vivid color and detail, offering a bright and breezy take on Riviera dressing. Chinos in slim and classic fits come in a rainbow of bright and earthy shades such as burnt orange, forest green and rustic red with contrast turn-up hem detailing. Pastel and checkered chino shorts are worn with nautical stripe tees and polos with slim collars. Prints come through in the form of subtle polka dots and paisley trims on shirts and polos. Layer your look with ribbed and fine-weave summer knits.
