Ready for Resort?

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

As some beautiful photos of the Resort 2013 collections have been showing up, I've been saving them away in little files on my computer. Yesterday I was thinking about how I could present some of them in a creative and fun way, when it popped in my head that if I'm showing resort collections, why not post some actual resort destinations inspired by the collections themselves. Weren't these collections designed with the vacation goer in mind, anyway? (Although, actually, so many of these resort looks would be great for formal wear or work that sometimes I wonder why they're even called 'resort' collections.  But when it comes to fashion and various other art forms, it doesn't pay to delve into the logic behind these thoughts but to just go with the 'feeling'.)

So, enjoy this virtual vacation traveling through some resort locations inspired by the feelings of the lines created for them!

Destination #1 The Chic European City... 
...Inspired by Lanvin Resort 2013

Destination #2 The Tropical Island, specifically Hawaii...
 ...Inspired by Erdem Resort 2013
 Destination #3 The African Safari... 
 ...Inspired by Calvin Klein Resort 2013
 Destination #4 Cool And Spicy Morocco... 
 ...Inspired by Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013
Destination #5 The Country Getaway... 
...Inspired by by Temperley London Resort 2013
Which destination would you choose? Which collection is your favorite?
Until next time,

  2. Definitely #5. The country getaway sounds so relaxing and the Temperely designs look beautiful!

  3. Such a great magazine style review you did! I am scrolling up and down and again up and down to figure out what it is that I want to wear and where I want to go...Now, CK safari style is perfect and the number 5 get way into the country with one of thoes temperley dresses would work just wonders .... gosh do we ever have enough clothes? NO!
    Yes Shannon, lets not ponder upon the meaning of "resort" collections, as we all want to wear this clothes you are showing many other places ... Going on a holiday next week myself, I am pretty sure I will get by with a few caftans and bikinis(:

  4. Sharon love this! Just getting caught up on all your posts. Great stuff. This is my favorite and I love thinking about all these places.. I think I'd love to go to the European city or Africa. So fun seeing all the clothes too.


  5. These are great, so well matched. Oscar would be pleased to be matched to Morocco I'm sure. I can't decide which I'd want - Chic European City, Tropical Island, or would that be Country Getaway? Or maybe I can just settle on one place each week, with LOTS of luggage for all these beautiful clothes. But if I could have just one thing it would be that gorgeous long Lanvin dress. Stunning!

  6. I love the blue stairs so much! Beautiful post :)

  7. What a great way to show these collections. I would have to say the African safari is my favorite but then again I like some in all places.


  8. Love, love, love Oscar de la Renta. A trip to an exciting destination is a great reason to indulge in some pretty new fashions.
