Botanical Resort

Miss Moss: Botanical Resort. Colour Mash Ups of Resort 2016 x Vintage Botanical Illustrations

this post all started with a dress. well, actually... it all started when i was ploughing through hundreds of photos of the Resort 2016 collections. but that’s not such a great intro, is it? truth be told i’m kind of lost when it comes to “the shows”. i might see one frequently popping up on my feeds (this year it’s been Gucci and Dior – but purely because of the venue) and then i cautiously dip my toes into a veritable ocean of fashion, which can be an overwhelming ordeal for even the seasoned blogger. and my main aim is how to show you what i think is cool, without it being, well, boring. so how do i do that? the best way i know how:  a colour comparison.

Resort 2015

i was looking through the Resort 2015 shows, preparing to do a bit of a round up of my favourite designers, when i noticed a lot of themes jumping out at me. so here they are. if someone asks you what you thought of Resort 2015, you can just respond – oh you know, lots of big stripes, crazy prints, birds, cats. the stand outs for me were Karen Walker (almost entirely because of that cat print) and Valentino because – duh.

Resort 2014

01-vuitton2

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).

Marc Jacobs Resort 2013

the second i saw the first image from the Marc Jacobs Resort 2013 collection all i could think was WOW! outfit after outfit after outfitwow, wow, wow. and if you’re about to comment about how crazy the shoes are or how you’d never wear such insanely bold colours all at once – i want to stop you right there. because this is rad and i won’t hear any of it.

Carven Resort 2012

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.”
