La Double| has raised the high vibration game to soaring new heights with the Spring/Summer '23 collection, its most elevated take on Southern Italian style. New, body-skimming silhouettes join voluminous updates on best-selling dresses, along with a complete capsule of summer knits, beach coverups, hand-crafted accessories, and more petite-friendly pieces than ever before, all in a palette inspired by the masterpiece mosaics and faded frescoes of Napoli. As always, each piece is crafted from the finest Italian materials, including brand new fabrications designed for steamy but stylish Mediterannean summers.

This is the Italian Riviera aesthetic at its most radiant,
This is La Double] at the next Ipvel.

Turning up the volume yet again on its opulent take on the Italian summer aesthetic, La Double]
delivers a slew of new silhouettes designed to take one from caffé to cena in high style. The Sta Da Dio! Dress, with its hidden corset and voluminous sleeves and train, is a versatile heroine of the collection, with adjustable sleeves worn on or off the shoulder, arriving in shimmering lurex fil coupé for evening and crisp summer poplin for day. Wearable as they are whimsical, the figure-flattering Capri Dress in easy, flowy jersey and the Sunkissed Dress with removable straps and flirty ruffles slip seamlessly over a swimsuit, while the slinky, puff-sleeved Sizzler Dress is the apex of sophisticated summer chic, transitioning from day to night with the addition of a few sparkling accessories.

It wouldn't be LD] without a major look-at-me moment, which takes shape in the Va Va Voom Dress, a black tie gown with a fully bead-embroidered bodice and red-carpet-ready silk train.

This season sees the addition of more short dresses than ever before, like the new ruffled Scooter Dress, designed for speeding through Rome on your Vespa, or the new Peek-A-Boo Mini Dress, a petite-friendly version of her longer best-selling sister. With her high buttoned collar and wide, thigh- skimming hem, the Sunburst Dress is equal parts demure and daring, while the Deck Dress in our soft and structured new Chevron is an effortlessly chic tunic on its own but beautiful paired with the 24/7 in its matching new Grove print.

Taller ladies needn't despair; these shorter pieces are high-vibe for ladies of all heights (and perfect for the Amazons among us looking to show off their summer tans).

La Double] continues to be the standard bearer for easy elegance, adding a complete capsule of sumptuous summer coverups to its swimwear offering this season.

The Costiera Mini Dress and Kaftan arrive in a vibrant rainbow of stripes in our light cotton knit for post-swim pull-on ease, while our fan-favorite Boxy Shirt and Drawstring Pants return in the minimalist-friendly Limoncello and Lakshmi prints, entirely mix and matchable with pieces from one's own wardrobe.

Our newest swimsuits, like the bust-boosting Barbarella Bikini, are, as always, designed to double as tops for afternoons on the Amalfi to evening aperitivos alike.

Along with its collection of coverups, La Double] has created a full line of light summer knits, including the playful Bay Polo and matching Bay Short, and the exquisite open-backed Riviera Dress, which arrives in our daisy chain embroidered cotton lace knit (custom design in-house), easily thrown over a swimsuit, but with romantic Mortitia-esque sleeves that elevate it to eveningwear. The Cortile Top and Pant Set is the brand's first truly unisex duo, arriving in light as air silk voile with a luxuriously oversized fit. In a nod to J.J!'s California roots, the brand launches its first collection of Varsity Bombers,
two featuring the season's heroine prints, and a statement nero version with "The Sisterhood"
embroidered across the back, a statement core the La Double| ethos.

We've gone crazy for color blocking this season with an entire collection of intricate intarsias across our knits to break up our bountiful Partenope, Santa Chiara, and Limoncello prints. Solids make a statement return this season across favorites like the Breakfast Dress with a contrast scalloped hem and the Lacey La Scala Top and Shorts in ivory and navy (to name just a few). True to contrarian form, La Double] takes a modern twist on the classic maritime stripe, creating two Riviera striped patterns, one in chocolate and petroleo and another in peach and vibrant arancia.
Inspired by the rich traditions of artistry in Napoli and the vivid colors of the region, this season's newest placed prints are a true celebration of Southern Italian Summer. The regal and romantic Corte print is an ode to the Court of the noble Neapolitan Borboni family, while the modern, oversized Macro Tiles draws inspiration from the mosaics found in the Palazzo Reale di Capodimonte.


Thinking head to fabulous toe, La Double] expands its collection of best-selling hair accessories to include the new raffia tricolore Halo Headband in three different colorways, along with the season's new over-the-shoulder staples; the minimal Fringe Sechiello with wide leather strap and contrast lining, and the striped raffia Riviera Tote, the chicest carry-all for all your Italian adventure essentials.
