A sense of adventure isn’t exactly what comes to mind when you think of Alessandra Rich’s style. You can’t imagine intrepid explorations of far-flung outdoors, or attending events like Coachella, wearing one of her stylish red carpet numbers or one of her favorite Kate Middleton pussy-cat shirt dresses. But life can be unpredictable, and for the resort, Rich took an unexpected turn to the wild side.
“I wanted something freer, stronger, with a warmer feel,” she explained. In Rich’s lexicon, “warm” is obviously an understatement: “warm” would be a more apt way to describe his vision of the seaside resort. Shot in an exotic location of red earth dunes and sparse vegetation, the collection exuded an abundant sexiness and laid-back vibe that wasn’t exactly Duchess of Cambridge. What Rich offered instead were plenty of sexy and racy party options that would seem appropriate at Glastonbury, but certainly wouldn’t suit any of the recent royal extravaganzas celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in London.
Ultra-mini low-rise miniskirts, sassy hot pants sprinkled with hot fix, frilly crop tops and midriff-baring bralettes were on the menu, along with flowing ruffled dresses as sheer as a morning mist at Burning Man, cut asymmetrically and furnished with fluffy plumage. Bikinis and cut-out bodysuits sparkling with sequins, soft knitted leggings/corset combos with psychedelic swirls of butterflies and intarsia flame patterns on roomy, cool leather cargoes would also go well in the suitcases of Rich’s party-loving party. “My girls like to have a good time,” she purred.
More glamorous and dramatic red carpet options have not been forgotten. A long, elegant black velvet dress with a dizzying plunging neckline gave off a mermaid allure, while a tailored tuxedo worn with low-rise bell bottoms in sheer black lace looked sassy and pretty cool. That post-pandemic party vibe is back in full force; from the mud of Glastonbury and outdoor raves to the lavish gilded salons of British castles, Alessandra Rich will cover all the party options.
