I could sit here and blog about the resort collections all day. I’ve just browsed through pictures of the Lanvin Resort 2013 collection and I am in love with the construction of these garments; the body-consciousness of some and the loose-fitting silhouettes on others. I love the looks that give a nod to the athletic and pyjama trends- the soft silks that can be worn both in broad daylight and dressed-up as evening wear. It’s like a whole new, elegant take on the tracksuit. Love it!
Marc Jacobs’s Resort 2013 collection is filled with pretty dresses that remind of me of my grandmother’s wardrobe. No, honestly! Dot prints, rosy pink and bright florals- my gran did it. Actually, granny wardrobes are just the biznis! When I ran into Refiloe (who writes for The Times and blogs on The Social) the other day she was wearing a black blouse with a sequin-studded collar, placket and cuff. The blouse belonged to her grandmother and, as Refiloe tells me, has been the subject of her sartorial envy for years. It seems ‘youthful playfulness’ may have just gone back a few generations to teach us a lesson or two about what the ‘f’ in fashion stands for- FUN!
Anyway. Here are some shots of the oh-so-gorgeous Marc Jacobs 2013 resort collection.
