Resort 2016 Collections


From Chanel in Seoul to Christian Dior in Cannes and Louis Vuitton in Palm Springs, the latest circuit of Resort collections has given journalists, stylists, editors and celebrities alike the opportunity to travel the world all within a few days. For those of us at home, it’s certainly been a treat to see how some of the greatest fashion geniuses (think: Karl Lagerfeld, Raf Simons & Nicolas Ghesquière) blend inspiration from their far-flung locations into their houses’ overall missions.
Admittedly, it was easy to be skeptical. We could see Christian Dior in Cannes, but Chanel in Seoul, and Louis Vuitton in Palm Springs? What could the houses possibly do there? As always, however, Lagerfeld, Simons and Ghesquière were at their A games and delivered collections that carried the feel of their respective houses while instilling a sense of freshness and futurism.

Didn’t have a chance to flip through the Resort 2016 collections earlier? Your tip-sheet is below!

The Location: Zaha Hadid’s Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, South Korea

The Inspiration: Korea’s K-pop music culture

The Overall Takeaway: The mismatched trend keeps going strong. Multicolor prints and saturated colors are in high fashion, and so are Mary Janes (leather, duh!).

The Location: Pierre Cardin’s Palais Bulles (“Bubble Palace) in Cannes, France

The Inspiration: The French Riviera meets the future

The Overall Takeaway: The house may have screamed “futurism” but the clothes were a nod to the past. Full-skirts, balloon-sleeves and checked patterns made an appearance. And it looks like pointed pumps — the iconic “it” shoe of the 1960’s have also made a comeback.

The Location: Bob Hope’s estate in Palm Springs, California

The Inspiration: The 1950’s with a twist

The Overall Takeaway: Break out with your floral maxi dresses and juxtapose them with combat boots and leather sandals. It’s about contrasting the soft versus the hard.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
