Design | Resort Report

It's quite unusual for me to get so excited for resort collections to be honest. I normally have a quick flick through the pages of minimal lines, muted palettes and simple shapes, and then call it a day. However, a few collections recently have made quite an impact - some new designers that are all but known to me, and some old favourites. For example, ACNE. I'm sure you've all seen the collection; clean lines, contrasting colours and of course, those glasses. I wanted to pick out a few collections that had me in awe, and longing for a large sum of cash, pronto

Jill Stuart. What can I say? The lolita style, tea party perfect items are gorgeous. As Style.com put it, "The designer loves injecting a little innocence into her collections". What stood out to me were the details, the little collars in white, red and blue. The pretty, child-like florals and heart prints that added a dreamy approach to an overall 40's flavoured silhouette. Plus, who could resist those heels, worn with a flutter of eyelashes and red lips.

Jenni Kayne. Admittedly, I had never heard of Ms Kayne, until I stumbled upon her collection last week. Made up of gauzy shirt dresses, boxy jackets and breezy skirts in the gauziest of pastels, paired with wide brims hats, her collection is effortless and . What I loved, was the wearability (is that even a word..?) each item had. Each one is such a simple wardrobe staple. Kayne stated her items were ""These clothes are made to work for you. "They're not precious.". I adore the cool yellow paired grey, such an unlikely combination, and the simple styling.

Emilo Pucci. Ok, so as you all know, I kinda despise colour blocking, or even bright bright colour. The idea of matching orange and purple sends shivers down my spine, and Zara's current mannequins make me feel slightly nauseous. HOWEVER, I am in love with Pucci's colourful suits. The colours are faded down to lighter alternatives, with ankle grazing slim trousers, and paired with - my favourite - peter pan style collars and boxy bags.
More updates soon, my exams are over and it's only two weeks till summer! Panda xo

  22. I never really liked Resort or prefall collections, just cuz I think it's too much- too much pressure on the desiners to spew out 4 collections a year.. But they sure are pretty, aren't they? :)
