Resort Round Up

I feel like the resort collections are the forgotten gem, the mid-season slump is a little better and September and the Fall collections seems just a little closer. The collections never seem to get enough editorial coverage, but as is the case with Alexander Wang I often prefer his Resort and Pre-Fall collections to main line.

Anyway, here's some stand out looks I found looking through the collections.

Alexander Wang

I love the updated Coco duffle bag, and I wish Alexander did tailoring more because I love the proportions of both these looks. It's much stronger than most of his Fall 10 collection.

Bottega Veneta

Rag & Bone

I love Rag & Bone's clothes, and especially the styling. The layering is impeccable and so is the mix of fabrics, and it's always their fall collections I enjoy the most. Fresh from winning the CFDA award for menswear the duo are certainly on the rise.

Marc by Marc Jacobs

The collection is inspired by 'a dancers wardrobe' which translates to no fuss basics and cute party dresses. I love the simplicity of this collection, how easy it would be to recreate on a smaller budget. In my mind this is the quintessential Marc by Marc Jacobs collection and it's well worth checking out the whole collection.

Stella McCartney

How fun is this!? It's just so...charming. These clothes could get lost on a white studio background but set in what appears to be a garden party these clothes comes to life. It's how I imagine they would be worn. I love the stunning blue palette that is used throughout, especially when you combine them all together:
