'Scent Of Summer'

A dreamscape of summer, a rhapsody to the bygone beauty of the 1960s, Resort 22 ‘Scent of Summer’ awakens the senses by playfully contrasting bold neon and sophisticated neutrals. Co-founders and Creative Directors Adrian Norris and Edwina Forest on Tuesday 11th May presented their Resort 22 collection ‘Scent of Summer’ in the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney.

Le Mempris Tiered Mini Dress

The voyage to another time and place takes form in the central island of The Calyx with undulating mounds of moss, where a crisp citrus scent from the lemon trees edge the outskirts, baring a blue sky utopia. To echo an ode to a summertime bliss amongst the sun-drenched walls, the Resort 22 runway itself was sunshine yellow, lined with odiferous herbs and flowering of delicate aromas in rosemary, mint, olive, gardenia and lavender.
