Monday Muse: The Great Goes All-American For Resort

The Great Resort 2018

Athleisure may be the prevailing trend as of late, but at The Great, Emily Current and Merritt Elliott aren’t offering up yoga pants and sports bras. Instead, they’re looking at athletic wear through a different lens. While some designers are all about high tech fabrications and aerodynamic, space-age shapes, Current and Elliott are looking back, looking at vintage sportswear for inspiration. The result for resort 2018 is a collection of throwback-inspired shapes with an athletic lean. Fans of the brand will recognize the slouch and super-soft fabrics, but the ease and cool-girl attitude are sure to bring in a whole new squad of fans.

French girl style may reign supreme at other labels, but that doesn’t seem to mesh well with old-school sport style, which could be why this latest outing seems so distinct and fresh. No Breton stripes, no Francophile flourishes. The Great incorporated baseball tees, elongated tennis skirts, and après-sport pullovers into a mix of denim — the line’s building blog, bar none — making for a fresh take on activewear.

Fans of The Great’s denim will have a few new silhouettes to try, including one with bowed legs and a lack of side seams. But for the less adventurous, there are new washes for the brand’s bestsellers, including a smoky grey and a deep black. As for tops, there are ruffled sweatshirts and a slew of tees and knits that look like they’ve been washed hundreds of times, revealing a super-soft feel and an unparalleled drape. The tees and jackets are huge sellers for the line, making for street-style standbys and wear-forever investments. Adding athletic flourishes like raglan sleeves and varsity stripes make for covetable updates. With many labels going all-out on embellishment and embroidery, these clean picks are a breath of fresh air and a welcome addition to the clothes in your daily rotation.
