resort 2012

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.

norway alesund

enter the clothes. my favorites were thakoon, erdem, and yves saint laurent. all images courtesy of first up: thakoon. the color palette, tailoring, and shapes are so, so perfect.

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.
