while looking through the resort collections, i was really struck by the richness and instensity of the color palettes many of the designers chose. then i realized what i was really seeing was a season where everyone seemed to be thinking along the same lines....

for example, the orange that seemed so striking when i first saw alexanger wang's collection, a bold color usually reserved for halloween and traffic cones, not fashion, kept appearing in other collections

alexander wang, brian reyes, narcisco rodriguez, stella mccartney, doo. ri

burberry prorsum's intense acid green and was also echoed in other looks

doo.ri, burberry prorsum, burberry prorsum, jenni kayne

finally, the blues, doo.ri's flourescent turqouise and helmut lang's yves klein blue being the standouts

doo.ri, doo.ri, stella mccartney, helmut lang, doo.ri

i am really excited to see such vibrant colors from so many designers. i also love resort season, as the collections are usually a lot more wearable and casual than the rest of the year. being just an art student with no grand parties to which i can wear a feathered cocktail mcqueen dress or whatever other couture item i might fantasize about, resort gives me a chance to see what my favorite designers imagine for the daily life of a customer like myself.

i agree! i love to see what the designers come up with for "everyday life" (well, if it includes little cocktail parties and private tennis clubs) those colors are amazing, the blues swept me away. and now i even think i might need something ornage.

I am seriously loving resort this season for its connection to audiences that speak in terms of worthy splurging. You know, since off runway items cost like an arm and leg.

And I added you back, your blog is divine!
