I know that resort collections 2015 are available to retailers until late 2014, but I can’t help, but stare at those images of Aussie designer Nicky Zimmerman’s Resort Collection like men stare at magazines filled with half-naked women. Her structured lace pieces and tent like silhouettes with inserts of eyelets, fishnets, openwork lattice and batik print makes the collection unassumingly sexy.
My obsession with fashion, as I know it, started with glossy pages, and if I had my way I would be sleeping on the magazine collection I once owned. No joke. Before there were e-magazines, online editorial destination or digital versions of our monthly fashion obsessions I had subscriptions to Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, W magazine, Vogue, UK Vogue, UK Elle for almost ten years. A little over 800 hundred magazines, could of made a good base for bed, but having my magazines be 800 hundred reasons for some sleepless nights I just couldn’t do.
Imagine the lyrics to Carrie Underwood’s song “ Good Girl ” paired with an original score from composer Hans Zimmer as the soundtrack to Alexander McQueen’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection! It would be the halo to complete the presentation. This collection must be what Sarah Burton would want the ladies of the church to wear if they ever get promoted beyond nunhood.
Should it be the classic Chanel jacket, the quilted handbag? Maybe it’s Chanel perfume/cologne or all of the above!
To call any one of those a rite of passage from the legendary fashion house just doesn’t have the same effect now that it did about a decade ago. To own a piece of Chanel then was a sign of success and wealth. You may have inherited your bag as a family heirloom, and you cherished it by taking it out on only special occasions.
Fast forward to present day and everybody is carrying that quilted double C thing, even the babies.
