INTRODUCING RESORT 2016 :: SONORA SUN
Tori Praver’s debut runway show at Miami Swim Week was a huge success over the weekend. The people who attended the show had a positive feedback on the brand’s Resort 2016 collection, titled “Sonoran Sun”.
Tori Praver Swimwear’s Resort 2016 collection embodies the spirit of rich Latin landscapes that the designer, Tori Praver, grew an appreciation for over years of traveling to these often remote and exotic locales. Whether for a weekend get-a-way to a unique surf-spot or traveling to these eye-catching locations for modeling shoots, Tori Praver, began collecting and cataloging this inspiration. The designer releases her 2016 resort collection building from this motif that is rooted with cacti, succulents and snakes while contrasted with calming motifs of waves, shore breaks and beaches. The color palette is robust, with deep, rich cactus greens and sangria purples, which are infused with light and natural colors in sky blue and nude.
The inspiration for the collection went beyond the color palette, prints and patterns, and includes a special take on the designer’s signature ruching technique. The Resort 2016 collection introduces a special fabric blocking that utilizes a mixture of solid and ruched fabric to create patterns and shapes that drive from the season’s inspiration.
Completing the look of the 2016 Women’s Resort Collection is a complete line of ready-to-wear inclusive of maxi dresses, kimonos, chic tops, and versatile bottoms. “I am pleased to further expand upon the success of our women’s ready-to-wear line for the Resort 2016 season. Each piece was thoughtfully designed for versatility, style and ease. I want to design wearable pieces that enhance and accommodate a busy woman’s lifestyle; whether for travel, work or play,” says Designer, Tori Praver.
The vibrant inspiration and color palette further extends from the collection’s main line to the beloved ‘Keiki’ line (meaning child in the Hawaiian language) that is a full line of swimwear for girls, which is inspired by the designer’s daughter, Ryan. The Keiki line retains the same signature style and substance that has come to be expected from Tori Praver’s designs, such as the unique ruching technique and seamless sewing. The vibrancy of the 2016 Resort prints and colors mimic the women’s line for easy mother-daughter matching. With the popularity of the Keiki line, the designer is debuting children’s clothing for Resort 2016 that will further extend the effortless, beach life style that the swimwear collection has become known for, and the fresh mother-daughter looks and styling that customers crave.
