We chat to acclaimed Australian designer Rebecca Vallance about her summery new Resort 18 collection.
What can we expect from the Resort Rebecca Vallance collection for David Jones?
Inspired by the beautiful coastal colours of Capri, Resort 18 evokes a feeling energy and romance; reminiscent of a summery holiday sea-side in Italy. The new collection is a perfect go-to for all end of year occasions and party season dressing – expect frills, ruching, off-the-shoulder bow details, and bell sleeves in both mini and midi lengths.
What are the key trends for Resort 18?
Midi length dresses, they are just so versatile and appropriate for any occasion.
Describe your signature style
I think it’s important to be stylish yet comfortable, my work uniform usually consists of a Rebecca Vallance black blazer and tailored pants with a Valentino sneaker.
What are the key items every woman should have in their closet?
I think it is really important to have a classic black blazer and a go-to party dress; something that you can pull out of your wardrobe, and look chic every time you wear it.
What was your last purchase?
A new Chanel boy bag.
What is the secret to your success?
To me work ethic is really important, it’s about rolling up your sleeves and getting the job done, whatever it is. Sometimes the road ahead is not easy but perseverance and perspective is the key!
