Resort 07 Wrap up

More than a decade ago, RTW shows were just for the buyers and VIP clients. Now, RTW shows are huge events that we can all log onto style.com and see videos and photos the next day. Just last week, Dior and Chanel held resort collection shows in NY in an unusually grand scale -that is with the buyers, press, celebs and after-parties. Are other labels going to follow this step? We'll see next year.

Christian Dior

This collection confirms that skirts and dresses are still the main focus next year. I love the way John Galliano used one or two choices of fabric per dress but managed to create so many different styles and cuts. Most of the collection seemed to be made of bright, shiny material, which according to style.com was laminated cotton and metallic linen. In the rare cases of pants, skinny pants are still Dior's choice. The bright, solid blocks of colour throughout the collection reminded me a bit of the disco times.
The left outfit is perfect for the fashion-foward business women. The dress on the right reminds me of Preen.
I don't know how anyone in real life would wear the dress on the left, but I can't get the image of Sasha in it out of my head! Metallic trench coat on the right.
Sexy and sooo cool.
LOVE these two dresses. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I hope high street stores will make similar dresses, esp the asymmetrical gold one!

Chanel

Usually I don't have much to say about Chanel's collections, but I really liked the casual, spring feel of this collection. But the knee-length gladiators are just... not great. Karl Lagerfeld really needs to work on the shoes he puts on the Chanel runway. Here are some pretty pieces:
Classic Chanel black and white prominent throughout the collection. The cute string bow thing in the hair reminds me of the Chanel haute couture shows.
Love the black leather coat on the left. If only I could afford it!
Pretty dresses! Notice the details on the dress on the left, and the accessories on the right.
The left is for the young and cute. The right is for the sophisticated.

My favorites from the Dior collection were the light gold dress above the asymmetrical one and the light aqua one to the right of the asymmetrical one - those are sooo pretty!

My favorites from Chanel were the 2 at the bottom! so chic!

I absolutely love the 2nd chanel dress (on the right of the first picture box) It is soo cute and could totally be pulled off in real life- I also really really like the second to last one!! Chanel is always soo classy and elegant and didnt fail to live up to that rep in this collection

im sorry, but doesn't Chanel kinda look like the classiest goth possible? it's kinda....morbid. like the classes black with lace and ribbon and the long straight hair just reminds me of that too much!!

i loooooooved that show that Galliano did with all sorts of people...i mean, he really is an artist, he creates, and sometimes he looses the focus and it isnt commercial at all! of course u need to have atittude to wear his creations, but this seasonit much more wearable then most, right?

on the other hand, lagerfeld, looses a bit of criativity in order to sell more...and even tough chanel saw fashion as business, it would hrt to do something more outrageous and brave. she was realy brave! and went beyond her time! i think he (karl) could need a litlle bit of galliano...

Shriya: The photos were taken from style.com, so of course you can make them into icons. I would recommend you take the images off style.com directly for the best quality.

i definitely love all of dior's dresses and skirts- I'm loving sasha's hooded dress and the 5th pic: the pastel pink dress!!

chanel's clothes were all right, I agree with the chic leather jacket. I'd love it a whole lot more if it was cropped (like a bomber jacket) though...

I loooove Chanel. Especially the first set. So adorable. Makes me wish once again that I am a bit taller for those shoes.
