Towards the end of a week of peacocking both on and off the runway, it was like a sigh of relief to see a collection that was both on-trend and highly accessible. Organic by John Patrick provided yet another season’s worth of sustainability-oriented clothing that is chic, versatile, and comfortable. Real-life wearability often seems to fall by the wayside as designers make efforts to challenge themselves and turn heads, creating garments that look interesting, but inconvenient or uncomfortable. Organic kept it real with silk charmeuse basketball shorts and pastel nylon bike shorts that played off the classic, feminine silhouettes of slinky camisoles and sheer button-up shirts. White continues to dominate the Spring/Summer 2015 color scheme, this time paired with soft yellow, light blue, pink, navy, and the occasional touch of black. Cropped merino wool sweaters and gauzy organdy layers showed off flashes of skin that added sex appeal to casual cool, paired off with flat, strappy sandals. As someone who values form right alongside function, Organic by John Patrick always plays off my want for ease and comfort while looking stylish.
