Final Resort 2011 Review

Remember when I said that Marc Jacob's Resort 2011 Collection was my favorite? Well, I might be torn...ever so slightly. Stella McCartney is a close second if not a definitive tie. Her collection was a breathtaking, beautiful, tailored mixture of patisserie colors, garden motifs, and sugary confections. Every piece so slim and exact, leaving no room for a pouf or anything frou-frou...mind you, I usually love the frou-frou but there is something so clean about her design that it's quite seducing.

My other tops from this final round of review are Yves Saint Laurent (love the colors), Zac Posen (which showed like a fairy tale dream),Rag + Bone (who I want to wear every day) and Versace (the color palette and shoes at Versace were wearing me out!). I also loved Reem Acra because, well, I'm female and I love the dreaminess of an evening gown, but also because it felt like a Pre-Raphaelite painting, an Egyptian goddess, a Maxfield Parrish and a Roman Empress come to life. So basically full on romanticism.

I also really loved Preen, Proenza Schouler and Rachel Roy. But then I had affection for all of these for very different reasons...

The shape of this pant is oh so very popular

A different twist on the shape of that pant

The aesthetic of TB is usually not my own,
but I like the Indian inspiration and layering!

The Row
I'm still adjusting to the Olsen's minimalist design approach

Described as "a Parisian in Africa"

The jumpsuit is here to stay (at least for awhile)
I like the playful take on Suno's

Sonia Rykiel
French nostalgia. Does it get any better?

Modern draping with vintage detail
Tres chic!

If I'm going to wear leather,
I'll take it buttery please

The boots, the colors, the cuts...want
Want it bad

Rachel Roy
Adore, adore, adore
The orange trouser is divine!

Proenza Schouler
This entire collection was exquisitely done

Loving the fall on the blue sheath

Peter Jensen
A Peter Jensen show is like watching a kids book come to life
Look past the distraction and the pieces are impeccable

That's it until fall as far as collections go! And given this humidity, I'll take fall tomorrow, please, with a pumpkin on top.
