Very rarely do I pay attention to the Resort Collections. I think the label “cruise wear” always put me off, along with fabrics that only appear to be suitable for wear during one month of the year in London. That and the cost, naturally.
Yet with the warmer summer in NYC I’ve been browsing the recent “cruise wear” for some inspiration. Preen immediately caught my eye (although I don’t think they label their collection as “Resort” any longer and refer to it as “Spring 2012”; creating four collections a year, corresponding with the seasons).
I’ve talked about Preen on the blog before – their power dress hangs in my wardrobe – and I love the smart modernity that is created by designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi. I want the whole Resort 2012 Collection and I want it right now. My favourite styles are the first and last images here. As I started writing this post I saw that Vogue London tweeted about this collection as one-to-watch. I wholeheartedly agree. You can read the full article here. Any ‘Resort’ collections grabbing your attention right now, Blog Reader? Do you love Preen as much as I do?
