Ovate’s Spring-Summer 2016 Collection is a beautiful line of unique basics that will freshen and update any darkly inclined wardrobe.
On March 12th Ovate released their Spring-Summer 2016 Collection. Ovate is based in Montreal, Canada and designs handcrafted garments focusing on deconstruction, distressing, garment-washing, and hand-dyeing. The new collection consists of clean and elegantly simple pieces that can act as building blocks and basics in your wardrobe. It includes grays and whites, which are good in the sun and can offer some new styling avenues, but it still remains dark in mood and subtly haunting. There are many tempting options to choose from: dresses, skirts, tops, pants, jackets, and accessories.
The Mathilde Short Sleeve Linen Dress with Collar is a highlight. The collar gives this simple dress a lot of character. While the linen fabric gives it a natural feel that is perfect for warmer weather. Linen makes this dress a bit more elevated than the many polyester black collared dresses that are out there.
The Linen T-Shirt Dress comes in black and charcoal. This dress is so versatile. You could wear it alone with sandals, over leggings, or as a swimsuit coverup.
The Yuli Linen Dress comes in lily white and black and although black is often the preference, the lily white really shows this dresses texture. This dress is simple and would be effortless to wear but that texture, being sheer, and the line of the gathered waist are little details that make it more. Plus it has pockets!
The Linen Suspender Skirt comes in natural and black. The combination of the natural skirt with a black button up top is quite striking! This dress showcases the subtle eerie magic in this collection. It hints at times past while remaining very current.
The Linen Gauze Scarf is one of the highlight accessories in this collection. With this scarf, you can wear a scarf in summer! Its natural linen texture make it appropriate for the season. Fold it up in your bag and pull out for air conditioning and cool nights.
The Linen Trousers and Organic Cotton Tank are a lovely combination. Drop crotch pants are really stylish right now and are really fun. They are full of character and a bit of whimsy. You have a sophisticated but easy look when they’re paired with the Organic Cotton Tank. The tank comes in ivory, black, and pale rose and would bring any outfit up a notch.
Saved the best for last. The Silk Cropped Camisole is naturally dyed with pomegranate and alder cones and the Silk Skirt is naturally dyed with black walnut and alder cones. They are both simply beautiful. Tie-die is in right now, but this is tie-die done right. This is the perfect go to outfit for spring and summer.
