This year’s Like Island contestants will dress in outfits from a shared wardrobe packed with designer merchandise, the show’s stylist has uncovered.

The well known dating sequence is set to return to the modest monitor on 6 June, with ITV announcing the initial 11 contestants on Monday.

Aside from a new villa area – still on the Spanish Balearic island of Majorca – viewers can hope to see a distinction in the islanders’ fashion picks.

The Television set clearly show has famously partnered with popular speedy style suppliers these as I Noticed It First and Missguided in the past, and even spawned the newest innovative director of PrettyLittleThing (Molly-Mae Hague).

It has departed from tradition for its eighth sequence – deciding upon eBay as its vogue spouse and hiring celeb stylist Amy Bannerman to resource the islanders’ wardrobes.

At a push event on Tuesday 31 May well, Bannerman uncovered a selection of standout items set to go into the villa from a extensive list of designers including Gucci, Versace, Moschino, Jacquemus and Dior.

In a bid to steer the female contestants absent from the “samey, colourful, quite restricted dresses” found on previous seasons, Bannerman states she has presented them with a selection that “blurs the traces of gendered dressing”.

An outsized men’s Ralph Lauren shirt has been turned into a dress, tightened at the waist with a Moschino belt. In the meantime the men will be dressed in ethereal, sheer materials in lighter colors from Calvin Klein, Givenchy and Prada.

“It’s really fascinating to be seeing models like Jacquemus going into the villa, and I think islanders are also pretty fired up about the fact that they get to have on designer parts,” Bannerman mentioned.

The wardrobe features a variety of standout vintage designer items, which Bannerman predicts may possibly lead to tussles in between islanders when it will come to determining who gets to use what.

There is a floor-length purple and black polka dot Moschino robe showcasing a sweetheart neckline and substantial ruffled sleeves. The gown at present retails for upwards of £6,000.

“I discovered this last week,” Bannerman stated of the Moschino robe. “And I’m imagining [the islanders] likely out for tapas and on the lookout really excess. Hopefully we will see that on display screen.”

An additional eye-catching glance is a classic co-ord from Blumarine. A small-rise midi skirt and extensive-sleeved crop top have both equally been crafted from a sheer, animal print material with beadwork and embroidery trim. “Why get the new y2k when you can have the unique?” Bannerman commented.

She has also managed to source a Versace dress from the Italian designer’s spring/summer time 2000 assortment, in the exact same print as the iconic robe Jennifer Lopez wore on the Grammy’s purple carpet.

Then there’s a sleeveless denim Balmain costume with gold buttons and distressed detailing, and a crimson Jean Paul Gaultier co-ord which she discovered she managed to get for just £40.

“It’s actually sexy but it is coated. It’s captivating in a diverse way it’s sort fitting but not extremely small and it doesn’t present cleveage,” Bannerman claimed of the Balmain glance.

Other coveted names likely into the villa contain Christopher Kane, Herve Leger and an Alaïa costume which Bannerman bought on the purchasing system for much less than £300.

“This was such a steal,” Bannerman she explained of the determine-hugging black mini dress. “The images of it were actually bad so we bought it for a real bargain.”

Describing the islanders’ reactions to the items, Bannerman reported: “There was a single female who was screaming and shouting out the names of all the designers. They just couldn’t feel it. It was a wonderful response.”
