Resort 2013: Fur Luxe

As mentioned previously, the Resort collections are fast becoming the champion underdog of the fashion cycle, a knight in shining armor for retailers. “Why?” you may ask.  Simply, due to today’s more relaxed way of dressing, many are looking to the cruise collections to fill a larger portion of their wardrobes, rather than following the stricter spring-summer and fall-winter routine.

More than a few designers are embracing this renewed interest in the Resort collections to unveil more than a few luxe touches, which include lovely fur items (we love the little purse charms). The Resort collections are becoming so important that Chanel even rented the gardens of Versailles and chauffeured its clients to watch the extravaganza.

To say that we were more than a little surprised with some of the great looks presented is an understatement. Some of the looks were not only edgy, but feel almost Fall-like in mood. We expect soft colors, lots of feminine touches and easy pieces. That said, many looks were far more polished and more “main-collection” worthy.

On the dark side, a little Goth flair, a little touch of black, showed its grin and turned the table around. Longer haired furs –especially fox and goat­– really played-up the drama; but so did colorful takes that brought to mind a few animated characters in all their ‘cartoony’ splendor. Fun and flair are always a primary component of Resort.

For those who crave more understated looks, the vest came, often paired with sheer blouses, creating a look that is fresh, young and light… and surprisingly adaptable to a more mature clientele too. This look is so Beverly Hills and Monte Carlo! We love it.
