July 16, 2012
Regardless of where your winter travels take you, Diane von Furstenberg’s Resort 2013 collection has pieces suited for every coast and continent. Inspired by America’s iconic shorelines and skylines, the “Zoom” line features a feminine mix of relaxed fits and structured pieces. Von Furstenberg recently traveled to Bhutan, Nepal and India, and her versatile pieces reflect a wardrobe that requires minimal packing. Cheerful separates with feminine ruffles, pleats, and prints take any sightseer from daytime to evening.
Bejeweled collars. Satin and python prints in vibrant hues. Metallic lace and ikat patterns inspired by the women in Istanbul. All of these details can be found in Michael Kors’ Resort 2013 collection, which has the designer’s signature sporty take on American glamour. Coats, shorts, knits, swimsuits, and floor-length gowns are styled according to what Kors calls “opulent minimalism,” making this simple, yet luxurious collection appropriate for the Capitol’s chicest.
Designer Bill Gaytten’s last collection for the house of Dior is timeless and feminine, with graphic silhouettes, flared frocks, full skirts, floral prints, and belted dresses. Wearable shapes include flattering 1950s-era waist-defining pieces with peplum tops and skinny trousers. Clean-cut yet bold, this upscale collection is full of chic staples for a vacation on the high seas or a dinner in your hometown.
