Autumn Adeigbo Resort 2023

-

When Autumn Adeigbo released an exclusive resort collection last year for Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, she had a revelation. “I have a little bit more experience with holiday parties than I do with vacationing,” she laughs, before admitting that it’s been three years since she’s taken a break. This won’t come as a surprise to anyone who has followed Adeigbo’s rise over the past few years.

Adeigbo launched her eponymous label in 2018 and by 2020 had secured $1 million in VC funding. Early supporters included Tory Burch and Stitch Fix founder Katrina Lake. Just last month, Adeigbo announced her first celebrity investors: Gabrielle Union, Cameron Diaz, and Mila Kunis. Reportedly, Adeigbo has now raised approximately $4.2 million. She’s also expanded categories into footwear, handbags, and other accessories.

It’s a testament to the clothes’ mass appeal. Adeigbo takes items that otherwise saturate the market—printed dresses with atypical sleeves, midriff cut-outs, or peekaboo panels—and makes them just that much funkier and cooler. A floor-length, puff-sleeved dress with an empire waistline and a squared-off neck could be written off as yet another dress inspired by Bridgerton’s rise, but with a fully beaded bodice contrasting with the jacquard skirt, it’s undeniably elevated.

For resort—which she calls holiday—Adeigbo wanted to “tap into that celebratory feeling of people coming together again.” It’s a season of party clothes: crushed velvet minis with a satin, heart-shaped bodice and matching gloves; ’80s prom dresses with two glittery bows and a full skirt you can hear swishing through the photos; many, many semi-transparent boned corsets. Most of the dresses come with coordinating hair bands, scrunchies, gloves, or some combination thereof—head-to-toe dressing, Adeigbo-style. You get the sense that every single one of these garments would like a glass of champagne, please.
