CELIA Resort 2022

Johanna Ortiz’s Resort 2022 COLLECTION travels to the epicenter of SOUTH AMERICA, a tropical destination of ‘latiness’: MIAMI. It’s Little Havana and Little Haití with that 50’s architecture in desaturated pastel color palette, it is AZÚCAR AVENUE in Calle 8 bringing back that FESTIVE SPIRIT OF CUBAN STARS and the elegance of women.

A LATIN AMERICAN SOUL enjoying the city life. SALSA, SPANGLISH and playing DOMINÓ while drinking Rosé and Coconut water. Her look is completely effortless and she has an extra feminine sense of style that irradiates joy and happiness.

Celebrating Latin American Elegance.

The silhouettes are feminine, easy and very flattering capturing the lightness of Resort destinations: clothes to slip on (slip skirts & slip dresses), breeze through, and lounge about - always in style. They are easy to wear and versatile from day to night. Unconstructed summer cuts and elastic smocks alongside transitional cozy knitwear and men inspired blazers: a game between tailored and flowy, masculine and feminine.

The surprise factor this season is a drop shape keyhole inspired on the 70 ́s that can be worn “back to front”: a low, feminine cleavage or a sophisticated open back. Tis iconic versatility is also present through removable sleeves and elegant cutouts that can be covered if needed.

The Prints are a Tropical Festiveness with palm trees, orchids and “lovebirds” (our beloved ‘loritos’). The ethnic touch this season is inspired on Australian aboriginal dot art recreating oversized palm tree leaves in hand painted dots. Tere are also oversized Oriental paisleys, kimono inspired florals and our own Tropical-Indian block print.

The aromatic color palette is inspired on Moroccan spice markets where ancient whites contrast with spicy reds like paprika, cayenne and saffron. Turmeric inspired yellows, jazmin and vibrant mint tea greens, anise, cloves, cigar shades of Tobacco, cardamom black and pottery hints of blue wrap up a festival of colors that is a feast to your senses.

The Accessories are all about crafts (always handmade) with an edge: Necklaces are reminiscent of traditional jewelry from indigenous tribes, combining seeds with wood & natural stones that create a relaxing, meditative sound when they move. Earrings are made from gold plated modern rings combined with natural Palma de Iraca and hand embroidered with mini sequins, a perfect balance of artisanal sophistication.

For transitional options, the collection includes fat sandals and heels with subtle and asymmetrical lines together with Western mid- calf suede boots. The weekender mochilas and clutches inspired by the renowned San Jacinto hammocks are must-haves and the Iraca tote bags with leather finishings complete the transitional looks. Belts are hand braided in leather and finished with bamboo buckles while offering alternative options in JO signature braided raffia.

To the strong women, vibrantly alive, enjoying the exquisite joy
