Editor’s Notes: Today 18 East launches its new summer collection, accounting for Antonio Ciongoli’s fourth drop. With this particular assortment we find the label taking a hand-crafted approach to colorful summer clothing.
A highlight from the new collection, the La Rose du Desert Motel Terry loungewear capsule is a nod to the hotel swag the 18 East team has collected during design trips over the years. The range includes a bucket hat, robe, polo, drawstring short, and slippers, each done up in plush white terry.
“The result is the beginning of an ongoing capsule of merch stolen from the budget hotel options we wish existed in our favorite travel destinations,” says Ciongoli.
Also featured in 18 East’s fourth drop is a third collaboration with Jimmy Gorecki’s LA-made cut and sew operation, as Standard Issue’s white T-shirts have been hand-dyed and embroidered in five different hues. Additionally, the Deadstock Ikat hiking shorts serve as another standout for summer, made from three deadstock bolts of handloom Ikat found in the textile markets of Delhi
