Michael Kors Resort 2013/ The charming East

It seems like Michael Kors has chosen his Resort 2013 destination. The charming gleams of the Far East -well, comparing to America- became the inspiration for this collection. Gold everywhere: from coats to pants and from sandals to buttons.

Michael Kors recently opened three new stores at Istanbul so it was pretty predictable that he would present a collection completely based on the oriental tradition. Thus, golden motifs and details ornament in a subtle, yet luxurious way dresses -most of them in 60’s A line- and pants, while the vivid colors -the emerald pyzama suit? Oh my God, I want it now!- give the necessary sparkle to this collection.

As always, you don’t expect nothing less from Michael Kors. He is the absolute ambassador of the glamorous minimalism!





Burberry Prorsum Resort 2013/ 24-7 Burberry style

We know that Burberry’s Christopher Bailey has managed with all of his collections to unify the classic british style that represents the English house with the contemporary demands of the ready-to-wear fashion. So far, his creations have been absolutely unique: eccentric, yet elegant and wearable. Not to mention his tailoring craftsmanship. Neverthless, this collection is certainly more focused to the commercial part of fashion, meaning that, although beautiful, the designs were a kind of predictable.
Consequently, only by accepting that Christopher’s Bailey resort collection is exclusively addresed to a more youthful, fashion consuming target group, can we really appreciate it. The androgyne aspect is dominating here, while the coats and the bomber jackets constitute the highlight -at least for me- of the collection. We saw also five evening dresses, with the last one being undoubtedly the modern revival of the 30’s big white dress (love it!). If you wonder why we didn’t see a bit more of evening wear, Bailey would probably answer “For what do you need the eveningwear, when you have a 24-7 black suit?!
