i used to be quite into following the shows as they were coming out, but somewhere along the way i just got tired of keeping up with them and instead relied on one or two images from one or two collections to pop up in my reader or pinterest feed to keep me abreast of what was happening (and what was beautiful).
the latest resort 2014 season has caught my eye more than a few times actually, so i decided to delve into all the shows (and i mean ALL the shows) and pick my favourites. i ended up with a top 30 – which means that i have done all the work for you, and you don’t have to even go and look at them yourself. yay? and now you can pretend you know what is going on in the fashion world, too.
also through all of this i realised that having 200 tabs open does not help with my computer’s performance, at all, so if you’re a constant new tab opener like me – try OneTab. it is a life saver.
i have only picked one image from each collection (bar two collections, who i simply couldn’t choose only one from – you’ll see who they are). all images are from style.com.
let’s kick off with Louis Vuitton, whose collection truly seduced me. i am not an LV fan by any stretch of the imagination, but this collection is so fun and the model is so breezy. yes please, LV!
next up The Row, a collection that is just so wearable and amazing.
Maiyet is a favourite around here. this printed tunic dress will do quite nicely.
i already spoke about how much i love the Nina Ricci collection. it is astoundingly beautiful.
one thing you an always count on when you browse a Valentino collection is that you can quickly scroll all the way to the bottom to see the evening dresses – these are ooh and aah material.
Temperley London has a similar knack for making beautiful gowns.
i love this sweet little number from Anna Sui.
you can’t go wrong with pink polka dots, thanks Derek Lam.
Stella McCartney made some colourful pieces for her latest collection, but i am partial to this navy & white number.
this leather jacket by Rag & Bone is badass.
i especially like the menswear pieces from Band of Outsiders.
the DKNY collection is kinda blah, but this quilted leather tuxedo slash bomber jacket combo is amazing.
love the silhouette of this dress by Theysken’s Theory.
a very interesting collection by Adam Lippes.
i wasn’t blown away by Giulietta, but i do love this:
it was quite hard picking my favourite from Honor, but this feathery number won in the end:
i always like the simple collections from Organic by John Patrick:
such an interesting little tennis dress by Jen Kao:
i already waxed lyrical about that coat from Chloe, also always love their menswear inspired items:
i had never heard of Ter et Bantine before, some quite lovely things here:
a gorgeous cut-out dress by Sea:
enjoyed the (
NYC? Paris) backdrop for Sonia Rykiel‘s collection – also Hanne is everywhere:
the strange Warhol lookalike fascinated me most in the Peter Jensen collection:
i’ve always loved the colourful splendour of Missoni, but this monochrome number WINS:
i actually just liked her hair. See by Chloe:
another new-to-me designer, Veronique Branquinho:
love this coat from Rachel Comey:
sadly i wasn’t overly impressed by perennial favourite Marni, but do love this:
Erdem always manages to impress:
and lastly, i just loved this image from Lanvin:
