3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 Collection
I absolutely adore this collection. I love how the ensembles manage to combine feminine flair with nautical neutrals. The colors remind me of downing pink champagne underneath the setting sun in a white beach house. This is a beautiful collection. Relaxed, Elegant and Blissful. I want to wear everything in it. "She's a pirate," says the designer, pointing out the patchwork denim, the antique lace, and the "sun-bleached" florals and lamés.
Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 Collection
Marc Jacobs has always been a personal favorite of mine. I love how he revitalizes vintage styles with fresh and bold colors, fabrics and treatment. This collection is another testament to is timeless and fluid aesthetic. Inspired by old hollywood, his ensembles remind me of summers in Tuscany and Madrid. Playful, whimsical and upbeat. I particularly love the bubble skirts, the high waisted satin shorts, the coral cropped pants and the tiered dresses.
Jason Wu Resort 2010 Collection
Jason Wu has been making the airwaves since Michelle Obama stepped out in is white gown to the inauguration ball. And a good thing also because this designer has something brilliant up his sleeve. This collection can be summed up in two words, Beautifully Practical. I'm currently in a grey phase. Grey is such a basic elegant color. I love how he combines the somberness of grey with healthy splashes of tangerine and mint green. Blazers have become a commodity in our closets as of late. The pretty dress or skirt/shirt underneath a structured blazer has been a favorite pairing of mine. His blazers are wonderfully tailored and will look beautiful worn in the city.
Stella McCartney Resort 2010 Collection
This collection was debuted in a soiree the designer hosted in absentia at her L.A. store in honor of World Environment Day. The collection is sexy and quirky in a mod sense. The black lace jumpsuit suit is done wonderfully with a large black bow in the midsection. The sporty side of the collection is shown in the romper, the structured drawstring-waist jackets and the striped dresses. Offbeat and fun. I could see a bit of Penny Lane in the collection. Proving that the designer practices what she preaches, 15 percent of the line is partially or 100 percent organic.
Alexander Wang Resort 2010 Collection
This collection exudes that elusive effortlessly cool vibe. Basic resort wear tweaked with city chic makes this collection very easy to transcend into other collections. Navy blue and neutrals are combined seamlessly for that laid back flair.
