Yves Saint Laurent Resort 2012 Collection
YSL designer Stefano Pilati has decided that his version of a resort collection is a literal one and that’s refreshingly direct. So direct, we feel like we’re watching the wardrobe tests for a 1940s screwball comedy about society swells on a cruiseliner. Everything is bright and vivid, with a persistent (and also extremely literal) nautical motif. Love all the bright reds and sailor stripes, as well as the very ’40s high collars with little puffed sleeves given a twist by adding a short, flirty skirt, not to mention the Betty Grable-esque knotted top with high-waisted shorts. Fun and pretty, which is really what a resort collection should be about, if you ask us.
