Resort 2014 Round-up

The 2014 Resort collections are pretty darn good this year, so I thought I’d do a round up of the ones that caught my eye.

Matthew Williamson‘s Resort 2014 collection takes its inspiration from the hot and arid landscape of Arizona. A palm leaf print is the central motif of the collection, rendered in a mix of soft pastel tones and bright, punchy colours.

Stephanie Danan and Justin Kern are the designers behind the label Co, whose Resort 2014 collection is elegant, minimalist and wearable. Interest is added through unusual shapes and fine tailoring.

Band of Outsiders is an effortlessly cool label that manages to produce fashion forward collections that don’t look overly art directed. Their Resort 2014 collection features bright colours, prints and intarsias by the Israeli artist Guy Yanai, reminiscent of “Hockney-esque swimming pools surrounded by supersize palm trees”. If I was cooler I’d love to wear all of these outfits.

I am a big fan of the Carven label because of their balance between form and function. They are the masters of creating beautiful coats and their Resort 2014 collection is no exception.

Alexander Lewis‘s surf-inspired Resort 2014 collection has modular dresses and jumpers that are both modern and feminine.

See By Chloé offers a richer and darker Resort 2014 collection than most. The masculine tailoring of their jackets and jumpsuits is spot on.

British designer Peter Jensen channels his inner Andy Warhol with a Resort 2014 Collection inspired by one of Warhol’s muses Paulette Goddard. Paulette was known for marrying wealthy men and accumulating a vast art and jewellery collection.

Lela Rose‘s Resort 2014 collection is influenced by the grids, shapes and lines of the Bauhaus, with a few softer prints thrown in for good measure.
