Michael Kors Resort – Designer Michael Kors’ resort 2014 collection brings to mind the seventies with a Palm Springs inspired outing of animal prints, leisure trousers and cut-out swimsuits. A varied color palette of black, white, suntan and bold aqua comes in a color-blocking effect as well as dynamic prints. The retro influence gets a modern accent with lucite cuffs, sleek shoulder bags and visor-inspired sunglasses. The resort season is also grounded in seventies inspired tailoring as seen by the collection’s printed caftans and wide-legged trousers.
Donna Karan Resort – For her resort 2014 collection, designer Donna Karan focused on separate pieces that toe the line between business casual and beach outing. Tunics in fluid and bohemian shapes showed off a more relaxed side of the Donna Karan woman. Tailored blazers and jackets added structure to chiffon, asymmetrical hemmed skirts and dresses. Karan’s color palette focused on neutral hues such as white, black and tan with the occasional pop of red. Evening wear introduced rich gold and navy hues for a glamorous take on nighttime style. / Photos by Seth Sabal
