resort ’12: goody two-shoes

Lots of designers went the demure route for Resort ’12, opting for high-necked blouses, prim A-line skirts, and charming florals.  Here are four different ways they interpreted the concept.

Humorous and playful, with clashing brights:

Quirky nerd girls  in ladylike flowered frocks:

Ethereal fabrics and a certain coolness quotient:

There’s a goody-goody girl for everyone!

resort ’12: pink ladies

There was a lot of pink going around for Resort ’12, and it wasn’t girly-girly so much as it had kind of a tough, edgy feel to it, even as it appeared in the form of floaty ’50s skirts and hyper-tailored trousers.  To my eye, these pieces would feel right at home on Rizzo, Frenchie, and the rest of the original mean girls.  Check out these new pink ladies:

I know Resort collections are for rich people who can afford to take their chartered planes to St. Barts for the month of February, but I like them because they come out in summer and give me ideas for the current season.

Nautical motifs are a no-brainer for Resort because everyone is lying around on their yachts in the South of France, and there were a lot of looks rocked in the cradle of the deep for ’12:
