Runway Review: Resort 2014 Collections

By: Tamara Arnew

Much of what we love about the idea of packing our bags and taking off to destinations unknown has to do with bringing too many pieces from our closet and planning to not come back for awhile. The 2014 Resort Collections each read like a post-card from the designers' own travels, with a sense of voyage and the kind of departure to a delighting newness so often found while vacationing.

Gucci gave us Lady Stardust’s champagne daydream in loungewear and kimono coats. Hooded jackets, slouchy silk tracksuits and neckerchiefs were looks that could be interpreted to transition in anticipation of a long spring and a late summer. Iridescent textiles and ochre, oyster, mink and mustard in the color palette gave off a seventies glamour counterbalanced by updated print pieces and pairs of platform espadrilles with fabric ankle-ties.

Moschino Cheap & Chic made the trip away from their darker side of fall and winter with daisy chains and crochet bell sleeves. Yellow centric pieces, tie-dye, a leather skater skirt and embellished calf high motorcycle boots made their wildflower girl invariably ahead of trend and all about peace, love and being a little misunderstood.

Finally Thakoon Addition, with the soft-focused geometric structure that the designer’s aesthetic point of view continues to re-shape season after season. Predominantly black and white sportswear was minimalist and layered, with muscle tee dresses and boxing shorts that will be next summer’s basics for those staying in the city.

Other collections to take notice of: Fendi, Tory Burch, Clover Canyon, Versus J.W. Anderson (for Versace!), Cut25 by Yigal AzrouĆ«l and, as always, Chanel.
