094 - Resort 2013: Part I

It slipped my mind that the resort shows were out, and I was meaning to cover Lanvin's Resort show until I saw Monique Lhullier's backstage photos on my newsfeed as well.

Alber Elbaz did a stunning and wearable collection for Lanvin, and it's got just about everything. From stripes, to solids, to prints; from monochrome, to nudes, to vibrant colors, and even gold and silver; from clothes, to shoes, to bags, to accessories. 

Peplums, visors, wedges (especially that remarkable transparent wedge in the 3rd image), heavy accessories, and full-body foil ensembles. The latter making me reconsider the "wearability" of this collection, but we always make allowances for spacesuits here on this blog.

If you put a picture of Monique Lhullier's Fall collection next to this one, you literally get black and white. It's a great escape from the dark and somber undertones of the previously collection, coming back with the full force of neon prints, lime greens, lemon yellows and fresh palettes; although Lhullier has reused her signature leather corset belts. 

A particularly no-frills collection, it comes without additional sequins and extras, unlike the fall collection which was much more elaborate. Clean silhouettes and flirty looks pull together an amazing collection for Resort 2013.
