as the inevitable haze and exhaustion of finals week takes hold, i found some solace in the newly released resort 2012 collections. i’ve collected my favorites here, but first i want to imagine where these clothes will be worn.
green canyon, west java, indonesia
crystalline turquoise lake, jiuzhaigou national park, china
next: erdem. their signature prints always slay me, but the textures and layers added in this time around are especially spot-on. these textiles are incredible.
two final erdem-related notes. 1) i know she’s just doing as directed, but that model needs to close her mouth. something’s gonna fly in there. 2) wouldn’t it be a fun challenge to see what those amazing shoes wouldn’t go with?
finally, yves saint laurent. i love the prints, the blocks of color, and the retro patterns the creative team must have drawn from. i also that some of the looks, especially in their styling, are borderline caricatures–seems like just the right note to strike.
