Sea Resort 2022 Collection | Vogue

0

A few seasons back, Sea’s pre-fall 2020 collection opened with a cocoon coat quilted with dozens of bits of prints and colors. Sean Monahan and Monica Paolini saw it as a fun experiment, unsure how it would resonate with their customers; Sea has never been known for outerwear. But when it hit shelves last summer, it became one of their best-selling items almost overnight. The timing might have had something to do with it, aligning serendipitously with our lives in lockdown: It was a coat that sparked joy and felt like a blanket. What could be more relevant?

The coat’s success spurred something of a quilting obsession for Paolini and Monahan. Every collection since has included an update on the style, plus kitschy quilted skirts, quilted hoodies, and Tyrolean quilted vests. Spring 2022’s winning idea was an easy T-shirt dress spliced with a quilt-printed skirt and full, topstitched sleeves. For those with subtler tastes, there was a crisp white midi dress trimmed with tonal quilted hearts.

Fans of the original coat will find a sleeker, narrower version here, but it’s Paolini and Monahan’s new outerwear concepts that feel particularly strong. Last fall, they introduced puffers with novel eyelet details and built-in scarves; next spring’s future hit is a cropped, boxy puffer wrapped in crochet granny squares. Streetwise and crafty at once, it sums up Sea’s evolving aesthetic; Paolini’s tastes are leaning more minimal, but also more artful. She’s been heavily inspired by the brand’s growing fanbase in Copenhagen (this lookbook was shot there, in fact, and Sea’s spring 2022 collection will debut at a Copenhagen Fashion Week dinner ahead of its usual New York Fashion Week appointments.) Anyone who’s strolled the Danish capital’s canals will attest that Sea’s bold colors, crafty details, and feminine dresses correspond neatly with how young, fashion-curious locals are dressing.
