Best and Worst: Resort 2016 Part I


1) Chloe Resort 2016

Chloe continues it's feminine ruffles, pleats and Grecian style silk dresses in delicious brown scorched earth tones.

Androgynous glam for that laid-back off-day Parisian chic look comes in the form of a tiger motif embroidery on a khaki green quilted bomber jacket.


2) Chanel Resort 2016

Besides propping wigs of a traditional Korean hairstyle and school-girl shoes, these voluminous patchwork dresses and jacket seem to overpower the wearer and make an unflattering costume.


3) Just Cavalli Resort 2016

Fringes and the wild wild west style looks like it's here to stay for another season in the form of retro revival mod-look gold and patent leather boots, fringed high waist skirts, denim and suede cowboy jackets and chain shoulder bags.


4) Gucci Resort 2016

Gucci's new designer Alessandro Michele second attempt as Gucci's creative director fell short once again for the Italian luxury brand's Resort 2016 runway collection in New York.

The designer is unsurprisingly criticized as ripping off from various other Italian designers and unable to formulate a new and strong identity for the ailing company.

For instance, the tiger embroidery top has been used by Kenzo and Just Cavalli in previous runway shows.

A frilly French maid looking dress with babydoll collar resembling Saint Laurent's recent sweet and girly, punk rock inspired collections.

The pearl embellished ribbon shoes look like Valentinos.

A floral maxi dress resembles the prints of Giambattista Valli's last Resort 2015 collection.

Quirky and kitsch is what miu miu does best. Pom-pom tassek lace-up ballerinas and a western-style shirt dress looks like Miuccia made it herself.

Alessandro Michele attempts to recreate the iconic tri-colour Gucci logo on a suede leather jacket instead of the usual bag strap. It looks like this one came from a thrift store.

Lace and floral embroidery is quintessential Dolce and Gabbana. Adding a snake and a bird only cheapens the looks of what looks like a ratty  yellow lace curtain transformed into a one-piece clown suit.
