For the Resort 2017 Collection, Senior Vice President of Design Greg Myler was inspired by mid-century architecture, specifically the 1960’s “Glass House.” Greg was drawn to the simplicity of the clean lines and mix of form and function. This season also marks the launch of Sport. A chic collection of modern silhouettes in bold stand-alone hues mixed in with an ease of chic neutrals. The new Sport collection brings out a signature sense of luxe to leisure and an urban edge to the art of relaxation. View the collection as reviewed by WWD.com below.
St. John Resort 2017
By Kristi Garced
For his latest St. John lineup, Greg Myler looked to mid-century architecture, specifically the Glass House — Philip Johnson’s see-through masterpiece of 1949, with its game-changing minimalist design and geometric proportions.
Color-blocked stripes and patterns gave Myler’s collection of knit dresses and separates their modernist, graphic edge. Done entirely in black, white, red and blue, the lineup offered clean, simple silhouettes — think fit-and-flare dresses and striped, stretch cotton poplin trousers — as well as a few options for evening. Among those, a strapless sequined jumpsuit was the highlight.
Resort also marked the relaunch of St. John Sport, a new line of casualwear to sit alongside the St. John label. Myler’s take on ath-leisure felt relaxed, but polished — no spandex to be found here — and he channeled a sporty-utilitarian vibe with side-striped track pants, knit bomber jackets and a stretch twill parka. Oversize wrap sweaters and cashmere sweats felt effortlessly luxe, ideal for easy-weekend dressing.
