Christian Siriano’s Spring 2017 collection is perfect for a getaway on the Isle of Capri. Vintage photos from the late 60s and 70s –particularly Settimio Garritano’s photos of Jackie Onassis’ vacations in Capri from 1969 to 1973– inspired a cool, modern seaside collection fit for a world-traveled woman.
Garritano captured Onassis’ effortless chic and elegant silhouettes. The turquoise waters and citrus orange-stripe umbrella-lined beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea inspired a bright and bold color palate. In the collection are soft cotton stripes, woven raffia, textured lace, and sheer organza overlays: casual elegance for day and evening.
Anthony Cole, Sebastian Professional International Artist, was inspired by Christian Siriano’s vision and wanted to create a look that was soft and delicate, but with texture to it. “To build off of Christian’s vision of Jackie-O on vacation in Capri, we created a look that had the natural hair pushed back with hair going from straight to wavy to make it look easy, like she just took a braid out of her hair and brushed it back,” says Anthony Cole.
