I'll begin my saying, I'm not a fan of Resort — it seems unnecessary, and consumes time and creative energy from designers which could be focused into even better fw/ss collections. It can be said that it allows designers to have more fun, and test out trends, cuts, colors, fabrics in preparation for fall; as pre-fall is for spring. Nevertheless, this was a boring season in my opinion — labels I'd thought would wow me, left me with a question mark, specifically Balenciaga, Chloé, and Chanel. On the other hand, I was treated to quite impressive collections by the ones that didn't drop the ball (i.e. the good ones were DAMN good, unfortunately there was a bell curve). This is a wrap up of the looks, not collections, that truly impressed me. As this is my blog, my opinions, my words, my point-of-view, I chose based on what appeals to me as a consumer, my tastes, cuts, details, color and fabric choice, and its ability to remain wearable come September - November when these pieces actually become available.
