Resort 2012 Collections – Part2

Rachel Zoe

I am loving the Rachel Zoe Resort 2012 collection! Playing with colour and print – Zoe’s Resort collection features her signature seventies aesthetic in classic dress shapes and separates. Elongated trousers, cocktail and shift dresses, blazers and caftans are the basis of her collection, which will see you effortlessly travel between your city chic day-to-day to effortless holiday glamour. Of her second collection, Zoe said: “With Fall, a lot of what I was doing was staying in my comfort zone. Here, I’m playing with color, playing with prints, playing with proportion a little bit.” Très Chic!

Yves Saint Laurent

Stefano Pilati looked to the ocean for the Yves Saint Laurent Resort collection. The nautical inspiration was blatantly clear with chic anchor motifs, rope-print dresses and sailor jackets taking to the catwalk. Sophisticated stripes looked effortlessly elegant, while puff-sleeved blouses and high-waisted flaring pants added romantic volume to the collection. Whether you are lounging on a yacht in the South of France or hailing a cab in bustling New York, who could say no to an adorable stylish stripe?  Or a poppy print dress for that matter…

Inspired by Viennese actress Romy Schneider, the Erdem Resort collection is captivatingly beautiful. Featuring the designer’s signature floral prints, exquisite use of lace and ultra feminine aesthetic – Erdem’s perfectly proportioned silhouettes are sophisticatedly sexy and seductively elegant. Love the unexpected detailing on the simple dress silhouettes and the restraint yet powerful impact they have when combined with the enchanting flower prints.

Michael Kors

Inspired by a holiday he took in Sydney, Michael Kors’ Resort collection combined the allure of the city and sports aesthetic of the beach. Of his inspiration, Kors’ said, “Sydney is the ultimate city beach life. I was in love.” Featuring an intoxicating mix of fluro colours, zebra prints and scuba inspired pieces – the Resort collection will lend itself perfectly to either beach or city dressing when looks are broken down into separates. It’s summer, sporty, luxe, glamour! Love the green and black striped top…

  1. I love them all!!!!! I could totally see myself in that michael kors green and black stripped shirt… and those erdem lace pants are super cute too!

  2. Adore the YSL collection, the nautical look that is such a classic but at the same time very refreshing. Absolutely love the all black ensemble… Giving me ideas for the spring… and we’re not even halfway through the winter in Sydney yet.
