“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
― John Lennon

Today I stumbled upon Resort 2013 collections from NYmag.com and Spent my time going through about a dozen of them. There were a few I liked, but a lot of them were not my taste. I loved the collections by Alice by Temperley and Temperley London. Alice by Temperley is made with the younger customer in mind as many of their pieces were cute and flirty and made with patterns and textures for the younger generation whereas Temperley London's collection uses bolder, brighter colors with demure sillouhettes. My favorite collection by far was Burberry's. It was a little bit dark for a resort collection, but I enjoyed the slim silhouette of each piece. BCBG Max Azria rounded out my top 4. Max Azria, to me, really embodied the feel of what a resort collection should be, with its kaftans and sporty dresses. This paired with bolds, neons, and mixed patterns made me want each piece for the beach!
Of the collections that I viewed I noticed bold and muted color choices, the sporty and tailored suit trends, but a big chunk of pieces were influenced by the 1950s "Madmen" style. I, personally, am getting a little tired of this look, but I guess designers aren't.
