Women’s Resort 2011

With at least a dozen collections this past month that had me falling head over heels in love, choosing just four Resort 2011 designers to feature here was a daunting task. Perhaps because it falls in between the two major fashion seasons, resort is often one that fashion lovers overlook. But after seeing these amazing collections there’s no question that Resort 2011 is not to be forgotten. I’ll be daydreaming about dancing my way through Saks Fifth Avenue, decked out in these designer duds for months to come, or at least until September!

Amazing. Beautiful. Drool-worthy. No matter how you look at it, Sarah Burton’s first resort collection as creative director of Alexander McQueen was a smashing success. Staying consistent with the aesthetic of the late designer’s namesake fashion house, this collection delivered everything expected and so much more. With brilliant textiles combining pops of bold pattern and colour with great texture, the clothes fit the models natural body-lines to a T. This is, by far, my favourite collection of the season. Mmmm Mmmmm good.

Fashion is fleeting, no one questions that. Trends come and go season by season, and some don’t even make it past the run way. That’s what I love about the collection that Preen showcased this past month. The simple, yet chic and sophisticated silhouettes, combined with a classic colour palette created a timeless collection that had me swooning.

Proenza, Proenza, Proenza. The colours and patterns in this amazing collection were so rich that it actually seemed as if you could feel the texture with your eyes. I know, I know, that makes no sense, but take a glance at the amazing blazers, shorts, and dresses above and you’ll understand. This is one of my favourite collections since… Well… Proenza Spring 2010. Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez have become the kings of textile, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

Givenchy, though certainly an iconic label known for its elegance and glamour, has never been a line I paid too much attention to. But on one of my daily surfs through the Resort collections on it caught my eye and the images have been swimming in my head ever since. The line between gaudy and chic is a fine one, and this collection balances embellishment with a clean palette, and has a beautiful combination of crisp lines and flowy garments. It’s ethereal, and yet almost-warrior like, representing a strong, empowered woman with one hell of a wardrobe.
