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.
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.
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.
Stella McCartney consistently produces collections that are of a high standard and remain true to her aesthetic. She also manages to create a unique look and feel for each collection which I imagine is rather difficult to do. Job well done (again) on her Resort 2014 collection.
