I recently spent a glorious day on the couch flipping through all the Resort 2011 shows. No really, it was glorious. Because I secretly feel as though when a designer does their resort collection, they aren't all 'MUST MAKE BIG FANTASTIC FASHION STATEMENT', I think they're probably more like, 'This collection is the new wardrobe for me and my besties as we spend our time doing fabulous things/things that we make cool and hip just because we happen to be the ultimate trendsetters.'
Consequently I picture myself wearing pieces from the Resort collections while partaking in wonderful activities like playing sardines with my boy Thakoon on some fabulous yacht. Like I said, GLO.RI.USSS.
So I have picked my faves and because no good outfit should ever be left behind, they each receive rewards (I'm all for a touch of kindergarten-style fairness). Are you ready? Because here comes part one.
