    Atelier Versace Couture Fall 2014

    Atelier Versace kicked off the Couture season yesterday, and Donatella Versace‘s latest was seeped in glamour, but that of a tailored sort. Her first look was a woolen rounded shoulder jacket paired with a wrap skirt that was fairly subdued, save for a panel of sheer boning at the waist. This subtle nod to the art of tailoring

    Vera Wang Resort 2015

    She might be known for artfully crafting tons of lacy white wedding gowns, but Vera Wang proved via her Resort showing that she knows how to create a dark, brooding collection with equal aplomb. It was pretty clear from look one—a tiered tulle dress in a dark floral print, paired with a coordinating floor-length vest and

    Vionnet Resort 2015

    Goga Ashkenazi‘s resort collection for Vionnet this season was all about the fusion of nature and tech. The veiny wings of dragonflies served as the inspiration for most of the patterns throughout the collection. The insect-centric motif cropped up on pieces like a long white halter neck evening gown with an asymmetrical hemline made from

    As Zac Posen continues his quest towards establishing himself in the separates realm, he’s taken a bit of personal inspiration: himself.

    Rebecca Taylor Resort 2015

    Rebecca Taylor’s latest 17-piece offering is an exercise in the sweet spot between laid-back and chicly put-together. Which is exactly what one would expect from a collection that was created for the jet set type who lives between suitcases. Just don’t confuse laid-back with messy; while the hems might have been uneven and the shapes a

    Cynthia Rowley Resort 2015

    Fitness buffs, take note: Cynthia Rowley’s latest creations are just as appropriate for a session with a personal trainer as they are for an evening on the town. But why so sporty? “You see people mindlessly putting on their black or grey leggings with sneakers, and they don’t really think ‘Can these be prettier?’” the designer

    Public School Resort 2015

    Just two seasons in, the Public School girl has definitely gotten her footing, in strappy thick soled shoes, nonetheless. Next to the cool, put-together PS boy, this collection from Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow is a fitting complementary set of looks for their fangirls. The collection reads like a line of basics, with a street style twist. While the white

    Resort 2015: Misha Nonoo

    Misha Nonoo is married to Alexander Gilkes, the co-founder behind digital art venture Paddle 8, so it’s no surprise the designer was influenced by artists for the resort season. Robert Motherwell‘s “Behind The Sea” series served as the reference point for wavy skirts in soft sea foam greens and crisp whites. “I was looking at

    Tibi Resort 2015

    Pack your bags, we’re going a sailing trip with Tibi’s Amy Smilovic, but don’t forget your flask! For Resort, the designer decided to put her own, naughty spin on the nautical trend, although a misbehaving sailor is not guaranteed with purchase. Rather, there are sailing references aplenty, including toggled sweaters, a healthy dose of stripes, and enough

    Chloé Resort 2015

    Chloé’s smash hit list continues with the label’s 2015 Resort collection. Arriving on the heels of the splashy re-opening of their  Madison Ave. store, Clare Waight-Keller took some clues from Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye to infuse some architectural details into the line. But the collection isn’t just a mix of straight lines and curves; the use of texture is

    Jason Wu Resort 2015

    Save for a few skin-baring details, Jason Wu’s Resort line was a collection of clean and polished pieces that would be swell, chic office attire. And while the designs were devoid of Wu’s signature underlying sensual qualities, but that didn’t detract from the collection’s appeal. Wu turned toward industrial designer Dieter Rams for inspiration, focusing on clean

    Missoni Resort 2015

    The color scheme chez Missoni for Resort 2015 has a dark tinge to it, fitting for, say, that rainy afternoon while vacationing on a tropical island.

    Michael Kors Resort 2015

    How with the times is Michael Kors? The designer described his resort collection as “#normkors”, playing on the internet-meme turned fashion movement terminology “normcore”. That meant there were pieces like a pleated white mom shorts, Birkenstocks, pullover hoodies, anoraks, below-the-knee flouncy denim skirts, and knit sweaters and scarfs that looked like they came crotched by way

    Resort 2015: Carolina Herrera

    A clean, fresh take on feminine: welcome to Carolina Herrera’s vision for Resort. The pared-down pieces were ground in neutrals, rife with the types of midnight blues and B&W prints that actually get closet mileage (…again and again and again). A particularly minimalist cream day-apropos ensemble felt sharp (and innately wearable), with a pencil skirt
