RESORT '13 | Part II


THE ROW
Let's start with the CFDA Womenswear Designer(s) of the year, the Olsen twins (congrats!)
Impeccably cut and simply chic, the casual comfort pieces in this collection were to die for. I can't get over the crisp lilac jacket and the preppy mustard. 
PROENZA SCHOULER
Runners up for Womenswear Design were Jack and Lazaro, a fabulous pair. Returning to the boxy but beautiful silhouettes of their past few collections, Resort '13 was finely tailored and the color scheme was phenomenal. 
DEREK LAM
Leather separates, A-line silhouettes, and countless pockets made this collection very strong and versatile. I also loved the juxtaposition of the vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines running through the pieces. 
BELSTAFF
Alright, so leather may not be the best fit for a summer textile, but it sure makes an outfit look like a million bucks. Motorcycle jackets, tailored bottoms, and attention to fine detail such as hardware and quilting made this collection outstandingly impressive.
BURBERRY PRORSUM
Bailey proves that smart dressing can go a  long way. I like how he paired generally "fall" tones with lighter summer pieces such as shorts and breezy jackets. Also, I would probably DIE if I saw a guy wearing that outfit on the left, it's pure perfection.
CALVIN KLEIN
I may have said this before, but FRANCISCO COSTA CAN DO NO WRONG. Origami-esque dropwaist dresses, pieces that look comfortable even through the internet, and a minimal palette--these are probably the best things since sliced bread. 
LANVIN
Strong lines and even stronger silhouettes in Alber Elbaz's latest collection were smashing alongside equally as structured handbags. Super flared skirts? I can dig.
M. PATMOS
As much as I loathe/love short collections, this one was outstanding for its bare simplicity. The pale shade of green is just perfect.
BALENCIAGA
The leather bodice in the first look absolutely blew me away, and by then I was sold. Ghesquiere's use of flouncy hemlines and contrasting structured tops was a genius move!
NAHM
Fabulously tailored shirts and printed bottoms. Need I say more?
