Best of Resort 2014 New York, Milan and Paris
Here is Unlikely You's Top 5 designers from the Resort 2014 collection presented in New York, Milan and Paris so far. More to come I promise!
1) Tibi - Paint Splatter Punk
Tibi's unmistakable laid-back feminine style has taken a sharp turn to a more abstract and masculine one in the Tibi Resort 2014 fashion presentation in New York. Boxy jackets in shades of varying blue - navy or bright, graphic paint splashes on sweaters, pants, skirts and jumpsuits pervaded almost the entire collection to give it a rebellious punk look.
2) Gucci - Power Dressing in Liquid Gold and Metallics
When it comes to quality, high street fashion copy-cat retailers such as Zara and H&M are unable to match up to the standards that Italian luxury brands set. Gucci is one fine example as they showcase luxurious fabrics and expert tailoring in gorgeous metallics.
3) Lanvin - Playing with the extremes of femininity and masculinity
Designer Alber Elbaz manages to achieve creating beautiful staple masterpieces that showcase the extremes of femininity and masculinity in an outfit but also bring the best of both worlds together.
I consider the iconic Lanvin Resort 2014 multicolored snakeskin trench coat as shown above a masterpiece.
The Ballerina inspired style Lanvin Resort 2014 collection dress as shown above has delicate frills at the hem and a strong waistline fastened by a simple obi style belt in the form of a delicate silk ribbon.
The masculine trench coat is magically transformed into a feminine piece by Alber Elbaz just by using soft fabrics and by adding soft wavy edges to the usual sharply tailored corners.
4) Stella McCartney - Revitalizing Python Prints in Bright Yellow
The silver clog heels might be ugly but the python-print blazer complete with contrasting color python-print lapels is a breath of fresh air in the midst of dull gray and brown classic python prints.
Pair Stella McCartney's Resort 2014 collection boyish bomber jacket in a bright yellow python-print with plain floral dresses to brighten up your outfit and instantly lift it up and away from borderline boring.
5) BCBGMAXAZRIA - Free Age Feminism

This beautiful two tone leather and fabric floral print jacket with studded lapels and sleeves allows you to embrace both your girly and rebellious side together.
