Embrace the carefree vibes of summer with these higher-waisted pants featuring a relaxed fit and stylish pleats, channeling the chic essence of the 70s in this fresh collection. It’s a breezy interpretation of laid-back elegance and luxury, drawing inspiration from the timeless glamour of Hollywood’s golden era and the enchanting allure of Acapulco. The “La Playa” collection is a testament to Snyder’s skill in crafting thoughtfully designed pieces that prioritize unmatched comfort, inviting you on a journey through summer style and sophistication, reflecting Snyder’s perfected blend over the years.
The collaboration between Todd Snyder and Riccardo Bruni of Lyria Fabrics has birthed a collection that speaks the universal language of style. Todd marveled at their communication through fabric, describing it as an incredible experience. They seamlessly blended elements of traditional attire with contemporary design, exemplified by the classic Guayabera shirt fashioned in dobby cloth, a piece effortlessly showcasing the nuanced yet captivating results of their partnership.
According to Todd, “This collection aims to evoke an endless summer, where the breeze is warm, the cerveza is cold, and the soundtrack is Antônio Carlos Jobim.” He elaborated on tunics with mandarin collars, leisure jackets, mesh tops, and self-belted pleated trousers, all paying homage to classic resort wear while drawing inspiration from the voluminous, unstructured silhouettes of the 1980s. He further challenged himself to infuse that laid-back ease with a touch of modern sophistication.
In Todd’s own words, this collection weaves a “Tale of Two Shorts”: one, a knee-length, flat-front piece radiating a dressy charm, and the other, a pleated design intended to hit mid-quad. Nearly every piece in the collection effortlessly pairs with their new Intrecciato leather sandals, introducing an intriguing twist, especially considering Todd had a Barcelona chair in Intrecciato leather on his mood board. Summer style just got a chic upgrade!
