Sportmax Resort 2022

Digging into a stylish granny’s wardrobe is a dream of every young vintage-lover, and it’s the one imagined for resort by Sportmax’s design team. Granted access to a treasure trove of frocks from the ’60s and ’70s, the lucky girl mixes and matches them together with what the brand’s fashion director Grazia Malagoli calls “a modern spirit of reinterpretation.”

Inspired by the almost kitschy look of vintage interiors, the collection revolved around ’60s and ’70s short and svelte silhouettes, rendered in floral jacquards, tartan tweeds, and tapestry-macramés, all treated to glossy finishes to give them a techno twist. Leather punctuated the offer, with bright tones of turquoise, mint green, and sunflower brightening up pleated minidresses and sleeveless vests paired with pooling pants, a recurring theme in the collection.

Shot in a stylish apartment, the lookbook images convey a cinematic feel, reminiscent of movies like Luis Buñuel’s Belle de Jour and Chantal Akerman’s Jeanne Dielman, which served as references. A belted trench coat in mustard green, a mimosa yellow paisley-printed skirt suit, and a sleeveless shift in pale blue laminated nylon with delicate floral motifs would all be appropriate for a young starlet cast in an updated version of The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie.
