With the Resort 2013 presentations dwindling down, we wanted to take a moment and share highlights from the season so far as we did earlier…
And with men’s fashion weeks and couture fresh off the runway, there are still Resort shows being intimately, however sporadically shown, that cannot be missed.
Take note as many of the season’s collections continue to deliver completely wearable, functional clothes to covet, and what’s even more to take note of is what we’ve got in store for you throughout this week.
Straight from the top collections we’ve highlighted here will be a four-day look at how to incorporate key ideas into your own look this summer. After all, Resort is for a warmer yet transitional climate, just like the one currently here in NYC and elsewhere.
While Chloe’s appointment of Claire Wright-Keller two season’s ago delivered a series of techno infused outings that weren’t quite right, Resort saw the designer hitting signature elements of the house with a winning range.
And with a majority of the lot in forever-chic neutrals and silhouette’s, the breadth of this collection was far-reaching and made for a welcome return of the label offering lust-worthy, realistic fashion.
From Balmain came a surprisingly approachable, and completely covetable range of smart separates that evoked the soft color-palette and relaxed finesse of Don Johnson’s Miami Vice era suits and Gianni Versace’s eye at getting the most out of optical prints.
From matching suits in ultra-femme hues to the perfect pant to an easy printed blouse, Balmain was on track & trend this season.

She’s captivated the world with jaw-droppingly beautiful couture-worthy numbers for Alexander McQueen, punctuated McQ with a trademark precision, and now Sarah Burton has in a way, made her mark on perfect suiting options.
Here, a high-waisted flared pant and fitted white blouse with an exaggerated collar, as plain as may sound, were sensational propositions in Burton’s hands. What’s more is that Resort worked as a platform for the designer to show off her hand at creating even the prettiest of dress, in a completely approachable direction.
Rochas continued its winning foray into retro fashions with a regal and minimal duality for the season by setting sight on reworking 50’s inspired elements for today.
Less naive and quirky as previous efforts, a restrained sensibility kept the collection looking versatile, elegant and on the mark.
