Resort Getaway

May 24th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Resort is underway and designers are turning out collections filled with surprising elements – whether the look is downtown cool, or polished elegance, the mini-season is off to a refreshing start.

BURBERRY PRORSUM
Designer: Christopher Bailey
Models: Ava Smith & Charlotte Wiggins

The Burberry look has always been a mix of luxe and offbeat, so this season’s playful touches like jeweled detailing and transparent lace skirts feel just right. Bailey masterfully reinterprets the house’s standards season after season, so for those in search of trench coats, cardigans and well cut jackets there is plenty to enjoy. Statement looks like pastel brocade topcoats and crystal covered pencil skirts provide the requisite easy-going glamour resort is all about.

DKNY
Models: Valery KaufmanEmeline Ghesquiere

You can have the DKNY resort collection in any color – as long as it’s black. DKNY has always reflected the needs of an urbane, youthful consumer but for resort things got gritty. Perhaps taking a cue from the haute-goth stylings of lines like Givenchy, DKNY filled their collection with hard-edge black pieces in multiple incarnations. Lacy blouses, transparent floor-length skirts and textured bomber jackets all in inky shades. A few chic metallic pieces added interest, but the stark looks stole the show.

OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Designer: Oscar de la Renta
Models: Kayley ChabotAmanda MurphyMagdalena JasekMaria Borges Manuela Frey & Pauline Van der Cruysse

Who can resist Oscar de la Renta’s frothy brand of femininity. For the legendary designer the resort season meant an abundance of lively colors and cocktail frocks filled with color, pattern and a youthful joie de vivre. Even if you’re not rushing out to brunch, or a fabulous party in one of De La Renta’s creations everyone can appreciate the grandeur of his vision.

The Actresses

January 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Love them or hate them actresses keep snapping up those coveted campaigns at an alarming rate. While we will always prefer the sight of a model in a fashion campaign, there are still some interesting ads featuring cinema stars this season. After dealing with the dog eat dog world of Tinseltown, surely these Hollywood beauties can handle a little critique.

MIU MIU
With her delicate features Aussie actress Mia Wasikowska certainly looks like a model in the spring ads for Miu Miu, but the posing skill isn’t really there. In the second shot she seems a little lost, but lets face it the real star here are the neon bags and those floral hair accessories. The garish color scheme might turn some people off, but these shots almost remind us of a neon version of the cameos that adorn her neck.

DKNY
We admit to not seeing much of the Ashley Greene ouvre (sorry, we could only get through about a half hour of Twilight before shutting it off) but her DKNY ads are nice enough. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin always deliver something pretty and these shots with Ash and Garrett Neff on top of a midtown building are a little bland, but cute.
