The November 2009 issue of Harper's Bazaar explains why Resort collections are the hidden treasure of fashion:
- Resort is not over-exposed and over-advertised, making clothes long-lasting and less trendy (this is a good thing!!).
- Resort designs feature good balance of innovation and practicality, resulting in versatile and unique pieces that can be worn all year round.
- Resort price points are more wallet friendly. This is always a bonus.
I have illustrated one of Phillip Lim's beautiful Resort 2010 looks. See it here. I love the combination of a plain gray fisherman-type sweater and a delicate sun-bleached floral skirt. It makes for one effortless but stylish look, that is as relaxed as Resort can be. I love the chunky brown pirate belt that holds the pleated skirt together. This is a nice, easy look to put together by yourself.
Added to the illustrated look is a lovely clutch. It is the Kira in gray by Ananas - a sweet, well-made leather clutch with wooden clasp and detachable strap. I love the simple design with a retro feel. It is already on my wish list...
