Here with another exciting collaboration, fashion retailer Pomelo has paired up with Thai designer Janesuda Parnto for an exclusive collection of dreamy sundresses, rompers and co-ords that bear the breezy silhouettes and easy-to-wear codes key to resortwear. Her pieces are crafted precisely for #PomeloGirls, or fans of the brand, and are versatile for weekends, getaways, and maybe even an upcoming overseas trip you’ve got planned.
Key to the 26-piece Janesuda x Pomelo series are floral prints, lace patchworks and customised cotton eyelets created just for the collection, and therefore unique to Pomelo — these are also hallmarks of Janesuda’s original designer label, well-loved by her fellow Thais for an enchanting appeal, done with refinement and her eye for wearable, coveted designs.
When worn and felt against the skin, you can tell that these are premium materials with enough intricate details to draw the eye towards them. For the halter-neck dresses, high-waist pants, and even a matching top-and-shorts set, white lace is intentionally paired with a nude lining for a romantic illusion effect that brings their doily-like patterns. A lace trim on a midi dress reveals exquisite textures when viewed close-up, and even beaded details on a spaghetti strap.
Since these were conceptualised for Pomelo girls, the garments feel ultra flattering for all body types, thanks to details such as flares, puff sleeves, and maxi and midi lengths hugging in the right places. Pomelo has also worked with Members of The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), the world’s largest cotton sustainability program, for the sustainable cotton fabric used across this collection.
Interestingly enough, Pomelo had in mind designs catered especially to its various Southeast Asian markets, Singapore included — it’s no surprise that some white lace pieces and midi dresses are already sold out online, though we’ve heard that these OOS items can still be purchased at Pomelo stores.
