Paris premium resortwear show Splash will host its second edition 25 to 27 June, having doubled in size following its launch last year.
Taking place at a tented venue located at Pont Alexandre III on the banks of the River Seine close to Les Champs Elysee and across the river from Invalides, the show will welcome returning brands such as Heidi Klein, Lazul, Mara Hoffman, Linda Farrow Eyewear and Camilla, as well as new exhibitors from around the globe such as Jets, Solid + Striped, Pily Q, Albertine, Milly and Pippa Holt amongst around 70 further premium resortwear brands.
Splash was created by Claire Spencer-Churchill and Alex Lyles, who also co-founded London-based multi-brand agency Claret Showroom. “We saw an opportunity to launch a resort wear show in Europe to showcase all the amazing brands and talent closer to the key European markets. Year one was a huge success and we are excited about both the brands, buyers and press set to attend this year,” says Spencer-Churchill.
Aside from curating a strong line-up of brands, the founders have equally prioritized the look and feel of the show. “The show will have a fun, light-hearted mood, whilst still meeting the commercial needs of brands, buyers and media. Rather than simply hiring a venue, we have built our own and so Splash Paris will be popping up on the banks of the River Seine for 3 days,” adds Lyles.
