2014 Resort Collections

Designers do, undoubtedly churn out all manner of outfits on to the runway, some which are beyond bizarre, at times out rightly ugly! That said and done, resort collections, in my opinion , can at times be a tad drab as compared to the Spring-Summer or Autumn-Winter collections. This season however had some pieces that really tugged at my heart. My favorite collection was from Versace. I wanted to grab each and every piece. I think it deserves its own blog post. Rebecca Minkoff also had some pretty cool and trendy pieces! I found the presentation of Jean Gaultier collection quite interesting. Almost as if the models were renaissance portraits . Carolina Herrera as usual displayed her clean but really classy touch in her collection. Badgley Mischka did not disappoint me with their beautiful dresses whose silhouettes were simply breath taking

More recently, designers, store buyers, and the media are viewing "resort wear" as a specialized year-round clothing style and fashion season. There are some important reasons for this. Areas such as Las Vegas, Marbella, Bahamas, Palm Beach, San Juan, and the San Barth and the Mustique Islands were holiday destinations, but they are now becoming places of year-round living. From the spectacular resort destinations of Dubai, South Africa and Thailand, to the Spanish Coast, Costa Rica and the Greek Islands, resort wear popularity is growing and it is not surprising to see Hawaiian shirts being worn on the Mexican Riviera. It has become a cross-cultural style that signifies relaxation, affluence, and appreciation of nature which displays a sense of style to the wearer.
