We’ve got to say, it seems like Saturdays NYC is always releasing something new, but that’s to be expected with a brand whose bread and butter is sophisticated essentials. The Spring/Summer 2016 collection doesn’t seek to rattle the cage too much, instead, Saturdays continues to do what it has become known for: producing effortless basics, this time with plenty of unique original prints.
For this season's offering, the label was inspired by the “various effects of light.” Speciality prints like “Iris” are thoughtfully conceived evidence of this reference. “Iris” is actually a reimagining of “bokeh,” a photographical term that describes the blur produced by an out-of-focus lens. Yet another print called "Prism," which is featured on jacket linings, swim trunk and even canvas sneakers, pays homage to light being filtered through (you guessed it), a prism. Although the patterns are certainly meant to stand out, the color story remains fairly subdued, which works to imbue many of the pieces with year-round wearability.
You’ll be able to shop the collection at any of Saturdays six international retail locations or through its web store.
