Resort 2012: Five Faves

A little belated, but here are 5 of my favourite things that came through from the shows and presentations...
The New Colour Block
Colour blocking is taking on a new lease of life, extending to across the body, lines following from cuff to cuff and in bold repitition. Above are classic colours red, white and black looking fresher than ever from Narciso Rodriguez and the punchy sporty colour blocking from T by Alex Wang.
Black & White
Monochrome prints as never before, from tile to florals they have been maximised, minimised, mixed up and slashed with that of-the-season side stripe, all look new and exciting. I love the idea of taking it beyond and dressing head to toe for a full on statement.

Spanish Fling
Just two looks I really like paired together, one of many Spanish señorita looks from Oscar de la Renta of full and ruffled dresses perfect for swishing and foot stomping then from Cheap & Chic a Moschino take on masculine dressing, with a little femme hint with the pink carnation.

Sporty Exposé
There's been a fair bit on relaxed luxe-y sportswear around, my most favoured take on this is the slightly body con maxi with a thigh high split! Best of all in neon pink from Michael Kors and in (yes) vibrant kumquat from Max Azria.

The Row
Last season I wanted to be draped in fur whilst in jewel coloured pyjama trousers and leopard print slippers, come Spring The Row girls  got it bang on again 20's croquet dressing for all hours of the day and night. Mid morning mixed stripes and contrast brogues, post tea time lady like suit dressing all in white and for cocktail hour Klimt inspired applique sheer sleeves and comfy mint washed silk trousers!
