Resort 09 VIII

1. Lanvin:

For resort, Alber Elbaz' creativity exploded in a cornucopia of extreme femininity. I must say that I loved every second of it. Take this look for example it's pink to the max, but the haphazardly-laid polka dots bring a bit of humor into the mix and lower the levels of saccharine. It's sort of a very grown up Minnie Mouse.


This tone of mustard yellow has been popping up all over the shows recently, most notably at Donna Karan's recent fall collection, and although I don't think it's a color that looks good on everyone, it still is absolutely gorgeous. I love that the silhouette looks a little wonky, like maybe she's playing dress up, yet somehow she looks alluring and sexy at the same time.


Alber also showed some of his looks in collaboration with Acne during his resort collection, and this one was my favorite. What can I say? I love a good Canadian Tuxedo , especially when the jacket is that cute (and mismatched denim washes are always the way to go).

2. Nina Ricci:

More denim suits for everyone! Yay Yay Yay! This is a trend I can TOTALLY get on board, I'm just going to need a couple denim skirts to go with my unwitting denim jacket collection in my closet (seriously, without realizing it, I've gathered at least 5 different denim jackets). The shoes are also super cute.
