Every once in a while a brand knocks it out of the park with a fun collaboration. In this instance it’s that between Splendid, a Los Angeles brand I have loved for years and Margherita Missoni. Yes that Missoni.
The team over at Splendid surprised me with this adorable daisy jumpsuit from the partnership. I’m featuring it here in today’s post but also showing you some of my favorite pieces from the Splendid X Margherita Missoni collection.
You may know Splendid from forever ago as the go to brand for all things striped. They’ve evolved a bit and while they still make stripes, they are really, truly known for their super soft materials in all of their pieces. As a west coast brand, their items embody that easy going and laid back vibe of Southern California. I love this partnership with Margherita, and she couldn’t have described it better:
“It was a fun fit because they’re Californian and very different from my Italian culture and aesthetic, but at the same time, there’s a laid-back, easy element to them and their DNA, which is part of my way of living and dressing.” – via WWD
This jumpsuit is by far my favorite piece from the collection. Since Margherita means daisy in Italian, the collection would be remiss if it didn’t contain the pretty little flower. I was a little worried about the fit and length since I’m 5’4” but the wide cropped legs allowed me to wear it straight out of the box, no hemming required. It also fits so well at the top thanks to a very cute smocked back. In true Splendid form, it’s made from the softest Lyocell material. It looks like chambray denim, so it’s super easy to wear with a variety of colors. I wanted to have a little fun with this look, so I added red canvas espadrilles and a brown belt.
Here are my other favorite pieces from the Splendid X Margherita Missoni collection:
This embroidered collar sweatshirt and matching drawstring shorts set is fun for an easy weekend. I can totally see myself riding a beach cruiser down the street in this comfy set. It’s also the perfect look for a laid back Sunday pizza night with friends. Bonus points for when it’s warm enough to eat outside.
This zip up tank also comes in a maxi dress but I love the tank top version because you can wear it with shorts like styled here, or with a cute pair of overalls. The zip is a twist on a classic tank, and the ribbing gives it sort of a retro flair.
Finally, it wouldn’t be Splendid without some seriously, full length stripes. I love the varying directions of all of the stripes with this shirt and skirt combo. It looks like it’s light as air – perfect for hot summer nights! The skirt has a little sarong tie at the hips , but my favorite part is the collar on the shirt. If you look closely, you can see color-blocked embroidery, which is a fun detail!
