Haute Tropics: Resort/Spring 17’ Designer Inspiration

Haute Tropics L*SPACE L*SPACE Designers Spring 2017

Here at L*SPACE, we’re always waiting in anticipation for the launch of a new season. We sat down with our designers Oanh (pronounced coin with an O) & Sasha to learn more about their inspiration behind Haute Tropics. 

 Walk us through the design process for a new season.

Oanh: It all starts with a conversation between our design team. We sit down and discuss what we’re loving. We pull tears from our favorite magazines & grab inspiration from trends in pop culture. From there we discuss what we want to see in the new line and then we’ll discuss colors, fabrics, and textures.

Sasha: Every season we’ll also incorporate some of our own designer flair.  You’ll see hints of Oanh’s love of vintage & sporty/athletic-inspired pieces and my love of animal prints.

Oanh: With all the trends now, we like to take a look back and pull inspiration to make it more modern.  We love the bikini Mom rocked in the 70’s & 80’s, but we don’t want to necessarily wear the same suit Mom wore. Instead, we’ll pull inspiration and redesign Mom’s bikini to make it more modern and on-trend.

What is the design inspiration behind Spring 17?

Oanh: Haute Tropics. It’s about this girl from Hawaii who lives and breathes the Island lifestyle. She throws on her bikini and lives this simple Hawaiian lifestyle yet looks totally chic on and off the beach.

Sasha: It’s a mix of nostalgia and living simply. It’s that feeling of laying on the beach, totally carefree before we were so digitally connected and overstimulated on technology.

 What pieces are you most excited about this season & why?

Sasha: For swim, I’m super excited about our new Pamela One Piece. It’s a sexy throwback and a great versatile one piece for many different body types. I also really love our new Moon Chaser Coverup (coming soon) because it’s something totally different.  

Oanh: I personally love our new Romi Top (coming soon) because you can wear it on and off the beach. I’m also loving our new Ocean Drive Vest (coming soon) because it’s like a t-shirt since it’s such a versatile piece and can be worn so many ways.

Oanh: You can expect to see bold colors and prints this season. We’re also putting a new spin on our high-neck tops and creating more lingerie-inspired pieces such as our Redondo & Frenchie (coming soon). You’ll also see some new textures, such as ribbing which is also new for us.

Sasha: Expect to see more swim and apparel that blur the lines blurring the lines between apparel & swim with barely-there shades and colors. Also, we’re excited to re-introduce fringe back into the line in a new way!

Introducing Resort/Spring 2017: Haute Tropics

 The Island life.

 For some, the dream is real. But for most of us, we can only fantasize booking a 1-way ticket to one of Hawaii’s beautiful Islands.  

 We hopped on a plane from LAX to the beautiful island of Oahu with Photographer Ali Mitton & Model Louise Mikkelsen for a one-week adventure across the island for our Spring 2017 campaign shoot.

Check out our Hawaiian Island adventure on the beautiful island of Oahu for our Resort/Spring 2017 campaign shoot, Haute Tropics.
