Language of the Birds’ Spring/Summer 2017 Line Will Keep You Cool, Comfy and Chic
Summer dressing is the definition of no-fuss.
Phew, it’s been a long long-weekend of working out, eating clean, exercising outside … OK, not really. You spent the whole weekend with some much-needed time on the couch, Netflixing, chilling and basically living in your comfiest, loosest robe. Fast forward to now and suffice it to say, you’re feeling loathe to return to your real-world wardrobe of form-fitting dresses and skinny trousers. Can we all just wear our loungewear everywhere, 24/7?

We hear ya, and it’s why we think you’ll love getting a peek at the new Language of the Birds 2017 collection. Perfect for our balmy tropical spring weather, these light and breezy, splurgeworthy pieces in bold new patterns are an artsy way to keep cool and comfy, while still looking like the well-dressed fashionista you are. With sharp, contemporary prints curated by Language of the Birds founder Tsia Carson (with her New York-meets-Honolulu tastes), the current collection utilizes a resort-appropriate selection inspired by tropical Brutalist architecture.
Straight, unfussy, midi-length shift dresses and wide, kimono-sleeve shirts for men and women are ultra easy to throw on and go, but small, unexpected cut details set the pieces apart. A boat neck and keyhole back give one an air of simple elegance, while another gets personality from a yoke and deep V-neck. And, can we talk about the ultra-airy kaftan, with extra-wide armholes and a roomy body?
In keeping with the brand’s dedication to ethically produced clothing, the fabrics, which range from metallic-copper prints on cotton to chambray to linen blends, are silk-screened in Los Angeles, and cut and sewn in New York.
Being a creature of comfort never looked so chic.
