wearability runs wild - resort 2013

As much as I appreciate a good statement piece, and I can't reiterate this enough, I still find a special sense of comfort in neutral pieces. Of course, a 'neutral' piece for me must still sustain an aura of freshness, otherwise neutral is simply a euphemism for dull. And dull I do not like. I like Resort collections because they bridge the gap between seasons and often offer the pieces you're exactly looking for, trans-seasonal pieces that will last a lifetime. Not to mention they complement any statement piece you might have bought for either of the major seasons - i.e. Spring/Summer or Autumn/Winter.

First off - I was happy to see the hobo bag back! The last few seasons didn't quite put the hobo in the spotlight. The oversized grab bag was taking its time, and the hobo bag's place on the runway and on the street! Although we haven't seen the last of that I assure you, spotted at The Row, Proenza Schouler and Balenciaga *again* (see first and fifth picture from the Proenza Schouler collection pictured here.)

Bags aside, here's a round-up of my favourite Resort collections so far...


Lately, I've taken to ob-sessing with Balenciaga, mildly speaking. This collection was no less of a wonder. Merging a futuristic theme with a 90s vibe, featuring pin-striped pants and leather corsets on white t-shirts. I'd call it a play on classics. All was wearable and attainable. Love - IT!

The Olsen twins never cease to amaze me. What's so wonderful about each and every collection of theirs is the fashion-forwardness whilst keeping in touch with street-style - something which is of essence. There was hardly a piece here I wouldn't wear.

Chic, wearable and fashion forward pieces. I can already smell a lot of similar ZARA pieces coming our way (don't think I'm complaining!).

Last but not least, Gucci, or rather an Ode to the Seventies. Classic seventies. Nothing's left to be said!
