Nitsa’s Launches New Resort-Wear Lines

Just in time for those spring break getaways and cruises, Nitsa’s is launching a new resort-wear collection in their Winston-Salem boutique.

Resort-wear lines that Nitsa’s will carry include Persifor, Roberta Roller Rabbit, Barbara Gerwit, HIHO, and Dizzy Lizzie.

Persifor offers bright and whimsical prints in casual dresses, tunics, palazzo pants, and accessories like handbags, totes, and hats. Their machine-washable silky custom fabric features vibrant hues of blues, greens, and citrus. Persifor was founded by Alexandra Thompson, a Parsons New School for Design graduate, who has worked in design for such iconic brands as J. Crew and Lilly Pulitzer before launching her own line.

Roberta Roller Rabbit is a travel-inspired lifestyle brand, offering exotic, sophisticated yet affordable leisurewear and accessories by designer Robert Freymann. Roberta Roller Rabbit is an offshoot of Freymann’s namesake label and was inspired by a fable of a magical rabbit that she found on a piece of discarded fabric in India. All of her pieces are hand-block printed, created and produced by Freymann with artisans in India. Popular prints include monkeys, elephants, and fish and complete the signature whimsical spirit that has become synonymous with the brand.

Barbara Gerwit has designed a resort collection that is made up of hand-blocked, hand-beaded embroidered tunics and tops, and other related accessory items. Casual printed knit dresses and tops have now been added to this growing collection. Her light and airy fabrics are made of brightly colored cotton lawn, cotton Swiss voile, and laundered linen that has been constructed for easy care and washability at affordable prices. Prints include bright florals, pineapples, flamingos, and seashells.

HIHO Clothing is inspired by life in the Caribbean with casual clothing including linen shirts and sweaters, beach dresses, printed cover-ups, and soft cotton t-shirts. HIHO clothing is based on a tropical lifestyle and influenced by the pristine environment of the Caribbean and island life. Clothing is soft, designed to be functional, colorful, and comfortable in a chic island way. The casual, cool, and elegant designs and original prints are the hallmark of the HIHO brand.

With timeless, modern patterns and prints, the Dizzy-Lizzie line is a designer collection for the modern day woman. Founded in 2006 by designer Liz Lighton, these timeless dresses, pants, jackets, and “Tizzie” shirts are redefining the way women dress. Lighton’s passion for prints is shown through every detail in her clothes, such as the ribbon trims, stretched fabric, cuffed sleeves, and inner cotton linings. The collection features dresses, tunics, and tops in bold and colorful stripes, prints, and florals that are perfect for a cruise or a stay at an island resort.

Stop in and see all of these beautiful resort-wear collections at Nitsa’s and get ready for your next vacation or bring a little bit of the islands to the Triad!

Last Resort Outfits

Just kidding! These 2014 resort-wear trends will be anything but your last choice while you’re island hopping. Throw in a few of these trendy pieces with your bikini, cover-up, and your Honeymoon Handbag (see our recommendation of go-to products here) and you’ll have a wardrobe fit for a princess—or a newlywed.

Nautical and Nice

It’s no surprise to see nautical attire as part of a resort collection; however, this year’s designer didn’t fall into old patterns. This season’s nautical numbers may be inspired by the seaside, however they hearken to a more relaxed vibe. From slouchy trousers to slouchy pull-overs, to generous yet structured dresses and jackets, this season makes seaside look so appealing.

Lace See

We sure saw lots of lace on the Resort 2014 runways, but be assured: This ain’t your mama’s lace. There is no shortage of the romantic lace of eras gone by in this season’s collection, but an edgier cousin also made an appearance with her mesh-like and graphic patterns.

Minding Your Midriff

Crop tops are continuing to crop up in this season’s resort collections. However, instead of the ab-baring numbers of seasons past, these midriff-showing showstoppers are decidedly more classy oh-so-chic!

Slouchy Trousers

Skip the skinnies this season and head straight for some slouch. Resort 2014 trouser style is defined by loose, comfortable, and even a little bit baggy. Pair with a crop top and some oversize sunnies, and you’re ready for a day of island exploration.

Tropics of Thunder

While we hope there’s no thunder on your resort vacay, we do hope there are lots of tropics—and we’re not just talking about the landscape. Resort runways were filled with tropical patterns this season, and we couldn’t be more pleased, especially since the patterns were characterized by a more sophisticated island-vibe than we’re used to. No tacky Hawaiian shirts here, friends. Just chic, updated frocks with sophisticated patterns.
