It’s little surprise that up-and-comer Caroline Constas chose dreamy Greek summers as the starting-off point for her collection.
After all, the Greek-Canadian designer sketched her very first looks at the tender age of eight, on the plane ride to Greece for her annual family summer trip. “I would spend entire plane rides to Greece sketching and when I would arrive my grandmother would look at my drawings and sew them into reality,” Constas told Glamour. “That was my first experience with seeing my designs materialize.”
Constas is still sketching away today and her two-year-collection of sweet poplin beach dresses, billowing off-the-shoulder tops and flirty bloomers are now coveted by fashion influencers such as Leandra Medine and Blair Eadie (and lots and lots of customers—the collections have often sold out the same day they hit stores!).
And even though summer’s mid-way through, Constas is still dreaming of Aegean-blue vacations. This week, she bowed an exclusive capsule collection of poplin beach dresses, shoulder-baring tops and crisp cotton shorts on Shopbop. The collection is perfect for the beach or casual summertime outing—but the standout piece is by far the Bardot dress, which is the most chic and easy silhouette to wear from now through Labor Day. Just throw on a pair of flat sandals and you’re good to go!
Here are some highlights from the collection. See them all here:
