Resort 2015 Review - Best & Worst Part I

Here's our runway review of Resort 2015 womenswear collections which may help you decide what's hot, what's not and which items to pre-order for your closet.

1) J. W. Anderson Resort 2015

Itsy bitsy blue striped work-shirt is not a bikini.


2)  Elie Saab Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Looking every bit regal, refined and polished is the Elie Saab woman in a gradient red to pink dyed natural fur coat. The pale porcelain look is in for Resort 2015.


3) Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2015

Wanna look like a puffy old quilt blanket for kids?

Colorblock gone wrong on this Doctor Oz inspired lab coat.


4) Giambattista Valli Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Floral print silk blouses and pants are so romantic and bohemian, a staple perennial for every season.

Style tip: It's hard to go wrong with clashing prints in light colors.

We absolutely adore the bambi deer print calf-hair tote bag from Giambatistta Valli.


5) Saloni Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
A great companion to a mad-woman look inducing hairdo is an all-over polka-dot clown two-piece.


6) Vionnet Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Cyberfashion at Vionnet: Geometrical shape prints in the style of a chip board - talk about the digital age.


7) Sonia Rykiel Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Wide leg pants are an obsolete style that makes even J Crew designer Jenna Lyons look unflattering in. Couple it with a print that eerily resembles orange plastic safety fences near roadworks and its a recipe for disaster at Sonia Rykiel.


8) Cynthia Rowley Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ever imagined an ostrich feather tutu skirt worn over granny pyjamas? Now you have.


9) Baja East Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Bermudas have gone all posh in leopard print with leather welt pockets. while sweatshirts are no longer fall staples.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Androgynous chic is a mix and match of menswear inspired tailored pants, sports shoes a cozy cardigan and sexy bikini.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Faux shearling lined leather visor hats anyone? Baja East's inspirational menswear style features batik print pants and long-line loose-fit T-shirts worn as a robe.


10) Veronique Branquinho Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Talk about outdated. This seventies style floor-length denim cargo skirt with utility pockets looks terrible with a picnic basket check top.


11) Sass & Bide Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
This floral two piece suit from Sass and Bide would look less like a clown suit without the vertical red and white striped borders and oversized prints.


12) Rosie Assoulin Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Fancy joining the occult? The you'll need Rosie Assoulin's magnificent two piece pure white sacrificial ceremony robe. Ghastly enough.


13) Lisa Marie Fernandez Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
This sexy tie-knot bikini in pastel colors will make you a pool-side magnet for all the single and not so single ladies and gentlemen.


14) Jenni Kayne Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Looking like a GAP commercial with generic blue high-waist shorts and a jailbird stripe top is this big fail of a collection by designer Jenni Kayne.


15) Nina Ricci Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The overall jumpsuit is suddenly transformed into an elegant bourgeoisie expression of style and class by Nina Ricci in intricate lace paired with a delicate silk chiffon shirt.


16) Moschino Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Moschino's Resort 2015 model looks strikingly like Miley Cyrus as the collection tries to bring back nineties fashion and make it look sexy again.

The only thing we like here is the gold biker bag made to look like it was fashioned out of a cool motorcycle jacket.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Recycling is Chic: Eye catching leather biker jacket style tube dress in gold.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Moschino has always been known for its quirky and funny irony in fashion and the "This is not a Moschino..." signature line has been updated for a shirt and bag.


17) Jil Sander Navy Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The Perfect Balance: Jil Sander's clean and minimalistic style which serves both form and function can be seen once again in their Resort 2015 collection where an oversized parka with huge pockets flaps that resembles a peplum on a dress is cinched with a clear plastic wide belt.


18) Dennis Basso Resort 2015

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Dennis Basso's elegant take on the fox fur vest features laser leather cut out baroque detailing, making it perfect for princesses enjoying summer in cooler climates.


19) Acne Studios Resort 2015
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
We know fishing is the lifeblood of Scandinavian livelihood but this Acne Studios ensemble of a weird old cross dressing fisherman's daughter lives us speechless with disgust.


20) Peter Pilotto Resort 2015

How to look old, really really old in ugly, gaudy prints. - Peter Pilotto
