Runway Report Omnibus - Resort 2012

Oh yes, Resort collections are probably my favourite examples of fancy wearable fashion.
Some of my absolute favourites from this years Resort collections...
 Probably a wee bit too much technicolour for me overall, but this little number is super snazzy in silver and lime.

Salvatore Ferragamo
Lots of lovely lush fabrics and draping here. I'm particularly fond of this blue and white pattern and the silhouette is fabulously classic.

Some eclectic stuff, and a bit too pattern-y for me overall, but the gentle juxtaposition of casual and cocktail is quite lovely.

Gorgeous cut-work on the fabrics and the woven patterns are quite spectaculor.

A bit of a mess of tribal textures at times (ha! not evident below however), but overall floaty and wonderful. The button up the side detail on the one-piece is a thoughtful touch.

Yes, there are a few too many 'beads' hanging off things for my tastes, but Oh my. The textures, patterned fabric and cuts of these are pretty damn fabulous. Not to mention the woven accessories! The block colour combinations are really smart and the tailored leather trench coats in brights rather than the traditional nudes are divine.

Yep, I loved all of this utterly adorable floaty stuff from Valentino! What fabulous fabrics and details. The 1930s inspired capped sleeved lace dresses are just divine. And I am ignoring the fur and focusing on the fabulous cut of that denim jumpsuit.
Note the hilarious gait from the models!

And I've saved the very best until last! Bright primary colours, wonderfully feminine cuts...honestly, what's not to absolutely l.o.v.e about all of this?! Adoring the playsuits and the puffed sleeve details. 
I'll have one of each, thank you.

Clearly I am putting my money on Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry Prorsum and Valentino.  You should all have a closer look through those collections - lots of amazingness to soak in.

Trends? Woven everything, Primary colours / BLUE, applique, denim denim denim, late 1930s era silhouettes

Happy hunting,
