Resort 2014 : Christian Dior, Versus Versace and Etro

Resort 2014 collections are trickling in very slowly and I just can’t find them all in one place. I don’t know why some of the sites are holding back on publishing them. Oh well, I have 3 collections to review here –  Christian Dior by Raf Simmons, Versus Versace by J.W. Anderson and Etro! Let’s begin!

Christian Dior

Showcased in Monaco, Dior’s collection had that air of elegance and a grandiose location to present it. Placed in a yacht, it was quite the obvious choice for a resort collection. The looks have that flair for luxe silhouettes but shaking it up with modern prints and styles. The opening dress it itself lays down the rule for the rest to follow. It’s modern, has sheer and opaque elements, metallic print and florals because well, who doesn’t like the hard and stand offish metals against colourful soft florals? There is an extensive amount of applique work and layering to make it look light and wearable. A lot of the silhouettes are unmistakably Dior and yet have a sporty and activewear elements into it. But there are a lot of other trends here as well, the asymmetric hemlines, colour and texture blocking and sheer layers.

Versus Versace by J.W. Anderson

The Versus Verasce show was a capsule collection designed by J.W. Anderson which surprised a lot of people. his style and aesthetic is so distinct from Versace’s intricate and feminine designs. But Versace also has toughness and boldness in it’s designs and that is something that was very apparent here. The cropped tops and skirts with slits make it very modern. It gives the overall look of a more chaotic life though.

Etro

Etro had a very colourful and graphical collection. The gradient and paisley mix is a very interesting look. Pairing that with bright colours and sleek silhouettes makes this is very worthy collection. I love the opening violet and pink dress. The lime coat with black and white is such a striking look. I love the print blocks on the pants as well.
