Not another soul in sight as far as the shoreline stretched north to south. Serenity. The only sounds to be heard – crashing waves and the same colony of seagulls that had been scavenging the stretch of beach the last few days.
I could have spent hours alone there, and so we did. The realization of escape. A place you must cross over by ferry to reach, and amongst the last havens on earth, or at least the east coast.
Joining with Anne Fontaine for another season, the solitary island was the perfect setting to introduce the SS22 collection – showcasing looks of pure fantasy with nods to escapism.
Without further adieu, here’s a taste of Anne’s latest collection of masterful creations, inspired from the exploration of France’s Basque Country of Biarritz and the arresting landscapes.
The Anne Fontaine new collection
Littered in soft brights, feminine lace and luxurious silhouettes, Anne Fontaine has really captured the essence of sophisticated resort, occasion, and everyday work wear in the perfect seasonal collection roll out.
My top selects for our secluded getaway – Anne Fontaine lace blouses that doubled as beach covers during our 6 days of luxury escape.
I wanted to go with something iconic and timeless, as this particular adventure also marks the last days of life alone with my husband and I – as we prepare to welcome the arrival of our first child due to arrive just a few weeks from now.
I knew these moments would last forever, and I wanted to embody a sort of timeless romanticism that captured the essence of each experience we shared during our time there.
Anne Fontaine lace blouse and floor grazing tulle skirt
Pure, ethereal and dreamy, this first combination is inspired by sea foam, and the waves creating a fresh new landscape with every touch to the shoreline.
Featuring the Cefalu eyelet embroidered shirt with poplin details, the French cuffs on this classic Anne Fontaine blouse allow for decorative cufflinks with crisp poplin details that can translate from resort wear to office attire with some simple layering.
Capturing the fantasy, the look is transformed to an unworldly elegance with the floor-grazing tulle Clady skirt – a piece that one can only be described as completely and utterly enchanting.
To say I felt like I was part of a dream is an understatement. No other look could have captured the emotions and visions of this irreplaceable experience better than these luxury selections from the SS22 Anne Fontaine collection.
Anne Fontaine black blouse
Part II, anther day seaside, another lace blouse from Anne Fontaine. There are some great silhouettes with a subtle 90’s influence that trigger a sense of nostalgia, evoking memories we can now relive in a new way.
The Lys lace shirt is one such piece. Crafted with unlined stretch lace, this Anne Fontaine black blouse is one I will recall when thinking back to these moments spent watching him cast his line at sea from our makeshift camp on the windy eastern shoreline.
It has a sort of familiar feel. Same as these moments spent together here on this island we’ve come to frequent for escape.
The details are pristine, with long sleeves and French cuff links. The center button placket and pointed collar add a sense of sensual sophistication that can transform the piece to an ideal selection for a date night out – or, a feminine transition piece for day to night wear with thoughtful layering.
Best of Anne Fontaine 2022 new collection
Transitioning to daytime resort wear, the Anne Fontaine SS22 collection also features elegant dress wear, ruffled blouses, and of course – more of their classic white shirting.
Some of my favorite pieces
I love the Cannes dress with pleated and ruffle details. It’s beautifully feminine with a soft edge that creates a certain curious intrigue. It reminds me of a seaside escape with a beautiful stranger stealing glances from passer bys.
Of course the Anne Fontaine white shirts remain a staple in my wardrobe, and play a big role in repeat wears with so many looks throughout the seasons.
The color block combos have a great duality vibe that really captures the essence of today’s culture and expressing individuality.
Fitted knit cardigan
For myself, my last select was a piece from Anne Fontaine’s previous season, the Solfege cardigan. The perfect fitted v-neck for layering over summer wear during chilly nights, it completed my collection built for late spring and early summer escapes.
The wardrobe essential is finished with elegant feminine details that I’ve come to know and love from Anne Fontaine.
I wore it open top button down over a growing baby belly, and plan to make the piece a wardrobe staple with its fitted silhouette that pairs perfectly with trousers and an assortment of summer dresses.
The Anne Fontaine SS22 collection radiates a playful energy that reminds us to indulge in summer escape. Each piece exudes a relaxed, effortless luxury while maintaining the brand’s iconic, timeless heritage.
Just a few of the many reasons I look to the Anne Fontaine new collection of shirts and dreamy occasion wear that can transition effortlessly from resort wear to office attire.
