The Resort collections remind us that sometimes fashion can be fun and frivolous. And that's all. And that's OK. Resort encourages escapism and celebration: a holiday to a far away place, a sundowner with your sweetheart, treasuring the luxury in your life.
Stella McCartney poses with models at her Resort 2009 show, (which took place in a quaint New York City garden-how perfect for our favourite eco-friendly designer.)
Alexander Wang took a break from grunge, grunge, grunge and offered up a few unusually girlie frocks, such as this lovely wrapped number pictured above.
It was all polka-dots and moonbeams at Lanvin's show this year. In keeping with resort wear's bottom line, designer Alber Elbaz wholeheartedly embraced "the idea of vacation."
