I guess I should have called this, resort speculation. Hey look, there are great new photo-shop skills on the Man Repeller team o’two and what better way to utilize just that than with a collage-o-lage that depicts five fun trends to note emerging from the resort shows currently in tow. I also think I should ask if you still have the lyrics to Call Me, Maybe stuck in your head? I do, it’s really starting to infiltrate my brain and that’s not good for anything. Whatever, look down.
Trend number one to note: matchy, matchy, tatchy, tatchy. The aesthetic at Michael Kors was a general recall to 60s glam, white and gold but small bits of what I imagine will become very relevant like a head to toe look in one singular print were sprinkled over the collection too. Evidently, it seems, I was onto something when Naomi shot the below.
What? Don’t tell me you’ve never put on a matching Marni x H&M pajama suit with your fur Alexander Wang Simona heels, a cross-body baby purse and sunglasses to stand knee up against a shower wall? No? Well, some people just know how to live.
Up next: Proenza Schouler, perfecting the perfectly-calculated-dose-of-carefree girl. The right dimension of loose fit jeans alongside an oversized coat, plain belt and tee and some simple sandals. Do note the pop of color in yellow formation and to that I allow this to resurface, again.
And at Phillip Lim, the overalls. Not just any overalls though, these ones are leather and slim fit and can only promise the prospect of constant speculation that Aunt Flow may have dropped by, only to be disappointed or rather relieved upon tedious and excessive removal of such overalls to find: it’s just leather induced sweat. Sweather, if you will. For this it is important that I bring in a low quality iPhone photo to depict the more colorful and over accessorized summer equivalent of just that.
And at NAHM: traditional silhouettes infused by loads of color, this particular look struck me because of them leg slits. I am always one to stand behind a slit pant and to prove, here is the resurgence of a certain DIY I conducted months ago and had Aram document.
Finally: Reed Krakoff. Perhaps my favorite collection of the season. This one is a tell tale indication that my recent inclination to lean toward tight pencil skirts with loose fit blouses is likely not a self-procured testament to new age fashion. Sometimes it’s hard to assess the line that distinguishes that but here’s what I know: pencil skirts, sweatshirts, I am coming.
