Whisking us away to Miami circa 1940, Fab has a new favorite! The Abaete Spring collection was polished, colorful and youthful. A mix of art deco and screen siren style, here is a collection to covet. Silhouettes were form fitting but also flowy in fabrics like stretch silk and cotton. Color blocking added some sportiness, while rhinestone embellishments added sassiness; this is very reminiscent of Coco Chanel's seaside separates. One would wear these wares while playing a game of badminton and then lounge around sipping a Tom Collins. Refreshing and bold, the colors were a cool mix of neutrals, black, white and standouts like teal and cornflower blue. I could do without the rosettes, but the cool plastic shades and sparkling clear bangles added bling.
Oh, and if you noticed the lovely ladylike shoes, they will be available come February at Payless via the Abaete for Payless collection!
