You wouldn’t believe the amount of Resort 2014 lookbooks that have been springing around the Internet the past couple of weeks (Well, maybe you could if you avidly stalked STYLE.COM like I do)
With Resort/Cruise season in full-swing, a plethora of designers have been showcasing their newest designs and there are a few consistent trends: contrasting blacks and whites, sportswear, slip-dresses, and florals (as per usual – but I am not complaining)!
A few of my favorites this season include: Honor, Jason Wu, Erdem, and Gucci (pictured above).
Honor’s collection in a word? Dainty. I love the soft pleating, the pops of color, the watercolor effect designer Giovanna Randall incorporated into a few pieces, and most of all, the gowns. Beautiful draping was done with organza and chiffon and I definitely foresee future brides wearing these beauties down the aisle.
Jason Wu is the master of minimalistic design and this collection just proves it. His structured trousers and boxy shift dresses are jaw-dropping – and don’t even get me started on his sheer-lace dresses; the softness and sheer femininity of each of his gowns completely compliments the sharp cuts and silhouettes of all the other designs.
Erdem’s collection had an air of tomboyishness this season, as Erdem Moralioğlu, the designer himself, stated, “That dual girl-boy element just felt right.” (STYLE) The simple trouser-tee combo was happily welcomed and I cannot get enough of his floral prints. These delicate pieces paired with boxy tops and dark colors gave this collection the exact edge it needed.
