SUBOO Presents: R21 Good Day Sunshine
The collection combines striking fabrications of custom fine knits, metallic pleating and printed matt satin, with a chilled insouciance and pared-back silhouettes. Printed cotton poplin, linen blends and crinkle muslin give a natural sensibility in cool day pieces. Show-stopping moments are created with keyhole cut-out detailing accentuated by tortoiseshell resin rings and faceted beads.
The colour palette of citrus, fuchsia and sage green is pared with muted new neutrals mushroom and merlot, fresh ivory, and iridescent chrome and metallic pinks.
Swimwear this season focuses on dramatic silhouettes with a vintage influence. The ‘Kaia’ textured swim in ivory and black features new tort ring cut outs, updating classic Suboo shapes. ‘Lennon’ swim is printed on Repreve recycled lycra, spun from recycled plastic bottles.
The satin ‘Kaleidoscope’, paisley ‘Lennon’ and ‘Sundown’ ombre prints give a nostalgic nod to the summer of ’66, when ‘Good Day Sunshine’ was the soundtrack of the moment. A time in life when anti conformist, pro-love and widened consciousness reigned. Cool girls were free to be seen in their short skirts, stripe knits and flicked Twiggy eye-liner, in bustling streets and by sunlit pools at hidden house parties in the hills.
