resort favorites part three

These favorite looks of mine didn't fit into my other collages, so here we are (the other collection would be Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony, which I wrote about here):
givenchy
Givenchy The whole collection was sort of the Alejandro video/Frida Kahlo (cited by Riccardo Tisci as an inspiration) and I want everything. I would love to see detail shots for this one. Everyone knows "resort" is a sucky name but if the girl that owned this whole collection* and went on vacation to an island she would live in a hut and paint and read and mix potions and burn incense and call in to work sick every day for the rest of her life.

*and anyone who owned this whole collection would wear nothing else, because they'd have no reason to not be satisfied with all this loveliness, and because owning these clothes would make them the kind of person with a niche. Like how a cartoon character always wears the same thing, or like Margot Tenenbaum.

stella
Stella McCartney STELLAAAAA! STELLLLLAAAAA! Okay, now that I have the obligatory over, HOLY HELL. Seriously, STELLLAAAA. I'll stop. But, um, marry me? The lace is perfectly balanced between being detailed and simple. The flowers are the greatest kind of florals because they look like intense paintings as opposed to that playful repeating print. And the colors. The whole thing sounds like a dreamy sigh, smells like spring rain, and feels like the luxurious, non-sick kind of bed-in day.

lanvin
Lanvin This looks like the kind of collection you'd have to see in real life, but hey, looks awesome enough. This picture is the greatest thing ever:

I want Alber Elbaz to photobomb my school picture next year.

oh yes, it's all beautiful. I like the Lanvin best, but I think he'd able to do better. I'm quite fussy.

Kristian said...

love love love the givenchy, but have to say my favorite resort piece so far is the floral blazer/short onezie from Stella. Or the white dress with the lace. No, the floral.

btw, what is the 411 on your POP-blog? I mean its nice to only have to follow you in one place, and it kind of beats the original purpose of blogging in my opinion, to be doing it for a magazine (regardless of how cool that magazine may be), but it seems to have slowed down to the point of resembling the Queen Mother in 2002. Just sayin'.

Oh, and i continuously giggle eternally from your old-Tavi with Chloë Sevigny platforms story. Thanks!

bea. said...

holy hell can i please have that stella mccartney floral printed short suit? and everything in the lanvin collection?

Midge said...

Oh, I just want to squeeze Alber and give him a cuddle!

Meggie said...

Tavi I love this, I went to OPRF so we have the same hometown as I recently found out!

Those shoes are hawt, Alber is a shoo-in to replace Kieser Karl when he at long last turns in.

YSL jacket, Missoni tank dress, and RARE Liberty print Cacharel skirt for sale!

I loved the florals at Stella as well and the Lanvin groups of threes looked so sophisticated/expensive teen vogue. I didn't even notice the photobomb! so funny

Chérie said...

Stella was so fantastic!!! The shapes and the silky suits were just so genius. And the flower prints??? It made me drool.

Fabiola "Fab" said...

I simply can choose! The collections are both splendid!

Robin Charlotte Humphrey said...

OMG!!!
Everthing is so beautifull
But i liked so much the white hair of lady gaga, the sunglasses, and the white cloth front in the mirror were perfect!

“The flowers are the greatest kind of florals because they look like intense paintings as opposed to that playful repeating print.”

So true! And what a beautiful example you’ve presented us! Speaking of painting, I’ve just been using some really toxic smelling gold paint, so if I’ve said anything that’s not quite right, then don’t worry, ‘cause it’s Only A Northern Song. No! No!, it’s probably because of the paint fumes.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one that got the 'Alejandro' kind of vibe from resort '11 Givenchy.

What really stood out as 'Alajandro' was the long sheer white dress with red strips of lace...reminded me of the red cross crotch outfit Gaga sported..check my blog.

I orgasmed when I looked at Givenchy..don't you just want to live in those clothes in an ancient haunted stone mansion surrounded by sexy twilight vampires also wearing Givenchy?..well..I do.

I love what Ricardo Tisci did with this collection, so far different from your typical Resort collections, which happen to be the most boring usually.

CMOS said...

I think this is my favorite part!
Givenchy had beautiful clothes... it was definitely Givenchy in its best! The only thing that I didnt like about Givenchy were the pants. Those pants with the extra fabric in the crotch?? that was weird! were they meant for transvesties?? lol...
Stella had a great collection too, very classy, minimalist like always, but fun! Great for Resort!
Lanvin was fun... I ma not to impress about the t-shirts since they might cost tones... and they are just tees! But the dresses and skirts look fun!

The third Givenchy look is mind blowing. And the second Lanvin dress. These are Tangents picks.

Although the Versace line is incredible!

Alber's collection looks fantastic - as always...

The others did great jobs as well - I've never seen so many interesting ressort collections building such a clever bridge to the last main collection before them - and hopefully to the next collection after them.

Anyway, I think Alber Elbaz is one of the funniest (and I mean hilarious) geniuses out there.

Aesha said...

Oh my gooooshhhh :O I loved Lanvin ! The colors are Fantastics !!!
