Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2012

Glamour, glamour, glamour, that is the only word needed to describe Roksanda Ilincic’s Resort collection. Like last season’s lemon yellow, Ilincic decided on a bright base colour to carry throughout the collection. This season it is lime green.  A hard colour to wear, but not when toned down like on the lining of a skirt or used as a belt cinched at the waist. For those daring clients, they can go all the way in a floor lenght ball gown made entirely of lime green silk satin. How fabulous is that?

The Serbian born designer made sure a 70’s and 80’s look was noticed within the collection by adding Turbans and wide, round shades taking to the glamour feel of the collection. If there is one thing Roksanda was trying to prove with this collection, it is that she can design wearable clothes with a twist, and she certainly did.
