For Sport – Designer Richard Chai based his resort 2013 “Love” collection off the concept of a woman wearing Nike sneakers with stylish workout apparel. Modeled by Mackenzie Drazan, the transitional season transforms exercise staples such as the jogging suit, hoodie and shorts into high-end, street-wear apparel. The slouchy silhouettes come in a mix of neutrals and bright hues such as ivory, electric blue, army green and turquoise with grungy or color blocked patterns. No doubt, the Richard Chai woman aims to keep it casual and cool for the upcoming resort season. / Photos by Jason Kim, Styling by Tom van Dorpe
The Super Color – Peter Pilotto’s resort 2013 collection offers an explosion of colors with kaleidoscopic prints and patterns created digitally by designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos. Modeled by Ava Smith and Josephine Skriver, the silhouette of the transitional season is rigid with above the knee skirts matched with short or long-sleeve tops contrasting the chaotic patterns. The resort collection also offers pants and jumpsuits in bold, all over prints inspired by medieval illuminated manuscripts found in London’s Royal Library. Overall, the Pilotto woman keeps it sophisticated with a touch of whimsy the resort season. / Photos by Jason Kim, Styling by Tom van Dorpe
