i don’t know how i missed the Peter Jensen Resort 2012 collection inspired by early Meryl Streep (think Manhattan, Kramer vs Kramer, Deer Hunter) – but it is definitely worth a second look. i remember watching Manhattan for the first time (my personal favourite, i prefer it even to Annie Hall) and being struck by Meryl’s beauty.
the Carven 2012 Resort Collection has completely swept me up into a frenzy of bowed shoes, neat collars and beautiful geographical and heidi-esque prints. too bad the model looks so unhappy, though. almost as if the creative director said to her, “listen – we need you to look as sad as possible. pretend that you hate the clothes! yeah that’s right… modelling these beautiful clothes really sucks.”
