Anemone's Resort 2020 Collection Is Minimalist Perfection & You’ll Want Every Piece
Though the official start of summer has finally arrived, chances are the essence of the season has been with you since Memorial Day (or for some of you, even earlier). If you’ve been preparing yourself for long days at the pool and reading up on the coolest new swimwear brands to hit the market, you’ve probably come across Anemone. And while the label’s debut collection may have put its name on the fashion world’s radar, Anemone’s Resort 2020 Collection proves it’s here to stay.
Just in case you haven’t had the chance to familiarize yourself with Anemone — which launched this past fall — the Los Angeles-based brand bases its swimwear largely off of the iconic style of Kate Moss in the ‘90s. With clean lines, classic silhouettes, minimal prints, and delicate details, it’s easy to see why the label has become a popular choice among fashion lovers across the board. To add to that, Anemone’s swimwear takes an eco-friendly approach using sustainable materials like ramie and cupro.
In its latest collection, the brand reiterates its love for the ‘90s with the continuation of its minimalist styles and the addition of six new silhouettes. And because you aren’t always by the water, Anemone has also introduced its first capsule of ready-to-wear pieces to wear all through summer.
Anemone’s Resort 2020 collection is currently available at Moda Operandi in the form of a trunkshow. If you haven’t shopped from one of the online retailer’s trunkshows before, this is the opportunity to look through the full collection and decide exactly what you want. When you pre-order an item, you only pay half of the cost up-front, providing the means for the designer to produce your piece, before completing the payment as soon as it ships.
The collection is available to pre-order for 20 days, so if there’s something you're eyeing, now is the time to shop. Consider the sleek $245 Balconette One-Piece Swimsuit, which comes in colors inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s desert series as well as black and white. Or, if you loved the brand’s floral embroidery seen in the first collection, opt for the $185 Floral Embroidered Bandeau Bikini Top.
If you’re looking for a cover-up to wear over your swimsuits, the label’s $345 Sleeveless Wrap Dress is an easy piece to throw on at any moment. You can also style the Back-Tied Mini Dress, $295, as a cover-up or wear it on its own with a pair of wedges. And in case you’re not a dress person, opt for the Ramie Linen Wrap Skirt, which costs $275 and will keep you cool on the hottest days.
