Resort 2015 Review - Best & Worst Part II

Our second part special of Resort 2015 Womenswear collection review. Some items are classic beauties that would still remain relevant for Fall Winter 2014, Spring Summer 2015 and beyond.

1) 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2015

Snakeskin print boots need not be reserved for Fall Winter as 3.1 Phillip Lim fashions the boot into a versatile everyday lace-up, peep-toe sandal boots. 


2) Alexander Wang Resort 2015

Alexander Wang presents an updated version of street style grunge glamour with ethereal shirts, cardigans and skirts in abstract graphic art prints for Resort 2015.

Lovely blue suede tall lace-up combat style boots, less Lara Croft-like and more punk-ass spunk.

This unfortunate oversized leather shirt and baggy pants combo with massive utility pockets just reminds us of a car mechanic in his one-piece work jumpsuit who still can't get rid of his rock band dream from the eighties. Pass me the spanner!


3) Alexis Mabille Resort 2015

Yumi Lambert presents the Alexis Mabille Resort collection with formal wear inspired casual wear - bi-colour blazers, cropped trousers and work blouses.

Work wear gets "hacked" by Alexis Mabille and it doesn't look too shabby at all. A colorblock mandarin collar blouse fitted with lace and matched with a floral skirt.

Who knew formal wear could be made so sexy? An intriguing midi-mini hem line on a yellow pleated silk skirt with lace insert paired with a cropped mandarin collar blouse.

An oversized blouse is transformed into a chic evening jacket. Soft fabrics in billowy shapes are the ultimate girly essentials which evoke a sense of romanticism. We absolutely love large silk bows. 



4) Antonio Berardi Resort 2015

It's all in the luxurious details for Antonio Berardi's Resort 2015 presentation. Heavy silk and satin skirts, sequins and a little sexy lace-up detail on an aquamarine blue canvas. 

We absolutely love the bright yellow patent tortoiseshell criss-cross strappy heels!


5) BCBG Max Azria Resort 2015

BCBG Max Azria knows how to do a poncho without overdoing it and making it more Pocahontas than pretty.

This handwoven denim blue suede blouse just takes our breath away. See the chain-like pleat details on the arms and neckline below.

6) Carven Resort 2015

Wanna look like a large orange photo booth? Try it for Halloween in this boxy jacket from Carven.


7) Chalayan Resort 2015

An escapee from the mental asylum or a giant clam shell washed up on the beach? We can't decide which for this particular accordion pleat curtain dress from Chalayan's Resort 2015 collection.

This outfit strangely looks like the back of a samurai warrior or bushido. Perhaps Hussein Chalayan has mistaken this for the wrong collection - it should be classified under menswear.

The blouse prints, its unflattering cut and shapeless black over the knee skirt looks like what a feeble, old Chinese granny would wear as she holds on to the rails on her walker for support.


8) Chanel Resort 2015

Tweed-tarded. That's what we call anyone who wears tweed in a mishmash of zig zag and houndstooth print in patches.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Perhaps grand uncle Karl Lagerfeld has watched too much Sailormoon (Japanese Anime) and had to put crescent shape accessories on his runway models.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The giant pearl clutch and pearl choker just looks cheap and unimaginative.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Chanel's 2015 Resort collection seems to take inspiration from Indian Kurta dressing and wedding accessories. 

Style tip: Large tacky floral print pyjama suits are not cool.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Garish, gaudy and gag-inducing are the only three words to describe this ensemble from the garbage dump.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Not feeling the giant beehive inspired do that only seems to make young girls look balder than they really are. Chanel's floral print white maxi skirt looks like a perfect tablecloth or summer picnic mat.

All-over flower appliqu├ęs on the jacket look more cheap than classy. The giant harem pants looks like an unknown, bloated sea creature - perhaps a head of an alien jellyfish.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Crystal Renn was well-known as a plus-sized model but this bad Chanel outfit has only made her look like she's well back into the shape of her former days. The only give-away is her sunken in hollow cheekbones.

Bad hair to match an equally bad looking outfit.

This Chanel runway model actually agrees with us and helps us hold up our famous "FAIL" sign - the mark of high fashion disasters

9) Chloe Resort 2015

It's a wrap with our review as Chloe blows us away in this remarkably chic blue wrap dress.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Chloe mixes chunky knitwear and winter jackets with bermudas and lightweight cotton dresses to achieve that fine balance for transitioning from resort to fall winter style.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Interesting mix of textures - colorblock leather top with a nude beige knit maxi-midi peekaboo skirt.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Simple yet sassy - bold yellow and golden brown stripes on white.

Style tip: It all lies in the contrast of the perfect colours.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
We love the rugged luxury look on the detailed frayed embellishments on Chloe's black V-neck blouse. We absolutely love the colourful gemstone studded pants on the side - reminding us of the smooth pebbles on a quiet beach. (Notice the gemstone colours - ocean blue, sand, gold, and brown)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
An ingenious creation from Chloe - the Kimono style dress with contrasting prints in colours that meld the outfit together.


10) Christian Siriano Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Terrible prints on a matching blouse and pair of trousers. We have no time to spare for backwards fashion trends.


11) Christopher Kane Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Granny prints and neckline. They should have found a model of a suitable age to wear it.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
We abhor the turn-up jeans trend. This nineties style wide leg fold-up jeans, resembling a fireman's hose from Christopher Kane is particularly bad.


12) 10 Crosby Derek Lam Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Constrict and construct: Tie us up with strings and ribbons. 

We love love love this floral print sweatshirt and jogger pants ensemble from 10 Crosby Derek Lam's Resort 2015 is highly accentuated with a string just below the bust and a pair of self-tie sandals made of blue silk ribbons.
