resort favorites part two

liquid
Liquid
Cool colors, electrifying warm ones, beiges, and flowing liquidy shapes.

Alexander Wang (1.) (Written about in part one.)

Calvin Klein (2, 5, 12.) (Also written about in part one. And that limey yellow is like the day time version of this look from Marc Jacobs Fall 2010. They have both made their way into my dreams.)

Balenciaga (3, 10.) The colors and prints in this collection are all too much. In the good way, of course. I know that when I talked about Bottega Veneta in my last post I was all "it's great because they cut the crap and get to the main details!" This collection isn't necessarily the anti-thesis of that, and the details aren't crap, but they're special in a different way. I need detail shots, though.

Bottega Veneta (4, 7.) HOLY HELL, see what I mean about the sense of color? The series of looks in the style of photo 4 made my jaw drop when I looked at the slideshow. Anyway, expanded upon in part one.

Celine (6, 9, 11.) Part one, again, but 1) THAT BAG! and 2) the side detail in photo 6 is so clever and cool and the kind of thing that would elicit a wink from another Celine fanatic, in a way more wonderful than someone complimenting an obnoxious monogram bag.

Zero + Maria Cornejo (8.) I can't get over the way the side sort of falls out of the arm. The whole collection is so perfectly earthy and Cornejo-y.

and you don't need boobs to wear them. flat chisel chest rules!

Annie said...

adore the acidy limey colours.

walrus said...

i liked 2,8,and 10 because their practical, but the other ones restrict one's movements so real women who wear them cannot acomplish anything. hard to believe thses are the favorites of a femminist, eh?

Emilie ! said...

Ah! you gotta love resort! clothing with a meaning is woonderful, but it is so refreshing to just not have to think and coo over the pretty colours and shapes :)

Tavi, I'm not really that in to fashion but I read your blog every day just because it's so cool and you express yourself so well. So please don't take this the wrong way - but you site is beginning to take forever to load because of all the images. Please don't EVER stop posting them - but is there anything you can do to make it load faster. I'm on high speed and I'm still waiting for your images from the last post to load. And I've already read today's post AND typed up this comment.

Keep up the good work! I've linked to your blog several times and sent my readers here to see just what can be done with a blog.

Cheers!

Kali Venable said...

Great picks! I love look #3 and #7(:
I am not to crazy about #4 though. The blue and green look good together but the pattern and shape of the top is akward and unflattering, then again I do LOVE the over sized short. Over all great post!

I like the liquid, but sometimes (in Calvin Klein's instance) I feel like it all looks the same and it's too "boring".

I like 5. It holds a perfect balance between simplicity & complexity. The subtle colouring helps bring this quality to the fore.

Abyssinia said...

I loved the Zero + Maria Cornejo collection too! It gets me excited about changing season...which in Northern Japan takes a loooong time.

I can't help but think I'd feel like a real, grown up lady if I wore that last dress.
