2011 Resort Collections

6

By Blerona

Max Azria’s collection was inspired by images from Africa, this travel-themed resort collection feels fresh with colorful batik printed caftans and billowy silk dresses. More colors included a rainbow of greens, neutral separates, and a series of white cotton shirts and tank dresses. Carolina Herrera’s collection was very light. The theme of the collection is very feminine and romantic, with many vibrant colors the collection is made for everyday in any part of the world. Diane Von Furstenberg’s collection was a very sexy beachy look. The collections had forties-style rompers with matching visors and totes, cinched wrap dresses over bathing suits; many graphic stripes, polka-dot prints, and tropical colors. Oscar de la Renta’s fashion show was one for the books. Especially since he streamed it live on Facebook. His collection included embellished jackets, skirts and dresses. With many different prints and vibrant colors this collection is perfect for that getaway we’ve been dying for.

Many times, small details are the ones that give life and personality to a garment. Too often, we overlook these details and don’t realize how embellishments can make a piece look beautiful.

 To demonstrate this, I picked 7 looks from the Resort 2010 collection. They have different kind of embellishments and they all work perfectly. Notice how without the embellishments, they wouldn’t look the same or they would probably look dull. Most of them utilize sequins plus a different element such as beads, crystals or mirrors.  Others, like the look from Zac Posen, use beautiful buttons and ribbon. You can also make any piece you already own special, just find the right embellishments and have fun being creative with them.
