Our 2018 Hydra Collection launched with the iconic whites and indigo blues of the Grecian coast, along with a strong nod toward the Greek tradition of beautifully embroidered fabrics. For Hydra 2019, we're introducing new shapes in clothing and cover-ups, chic scarves, a fabulous new bag, and the addition of sophisticated black colorways and small pops of coral. This is elegant resort wear that is easy to throw on and go. Luxurious fabrics, no fuss, all style.
Cover-ups can be just as beautiful as your swimsuit, and our beach dresses are no exception. The Petasi eyelet beach dress comes in navy, black, and white. You'll love the soft 100% cotton fabric with delicate eyelet detailing, as well as the tassel neck ties, side vents, and button closure at the wrist. The Helena embroidered high-low dress features a flattering high-low hem, intricate coral pink embroidery, and a yarn-dyed stripe. They're both super comfortable and easy to move in.
Our bestselling kimono wraps now have a more refined sister in our Siros Tassel Kimonos. This is the must-have piece of the summer. It comes in white with the option of navy, black, or tan tassels and embroidery, plus, you can wear it not only as a kimono wrap but also as a swimsuit cover-up. The angled hem creates lovely lines, and you can easily incorporate this beauty into your wardrobe with its neutral color palette. Throw on one of our Kamini woven striped scarves for a little extra warmth when the summer sun goes down.
We've also added eye-catching mud cloth scarves to our Hydra collection, featuring bold prints with an organic energy, printed on a luscious and lightweight viscose blend. Tassel details at the corners give the scarf a bit of weight for gorgeous styling options.
To top off you perfect beach day, our Woven Stripe Cotton Totes range from an elegant striped black to a more whimsical striped coral to match your mood and your outfit. Fully lined, plus an interior pocket accented with a pom pom tassel zipper pull, this tote is stylish enough to be your everyday purse.
