Last Thoughts on Resort

So after this, my work with the Resort 2011 collections is over. And by "work" I mean pausing "Monty Python's The Meaning of Life" on the dvd and add some text to these photos I chose from and collaged a few days ago. Forget the fact that I should be preparing English classes for a Spanish Cooperation consultant for tomorrow monday, which I'll give at some point after spending all day on the streets with anthropoligist Adrienne Pine getting footage for a documentary about the anniversary of the Coup d'etat of June 28th, 2010 in Honduras.That and coordinating a conference to honor 1998 Nobel prize writer José Saramago taking place on Thursday. While attending a theater workshop every morning. People ask me, "Raúl, how do you do it?" (Actually nobody asks but it sounds like I'm inspiring or something) and the truth is I just throw things into the snowball behind me and run a little bit faster. *DEEP BREATH* ANYWAY getting this done.

Lanvin is just.. sublime. But even so Alber Elbaz (who is in fact photobombing the sixth image) came up with these shifting garments, some of which are reversible and one can be transformed from a coat to a shirtdress. It's not like the morphing Hussein Chalayan Spring 2007 collection, but rather a more wearable, budget friendly one.

Proenza Schouler
Colors and patterns. Sort of carpetty, in a good, Stanley Kubrik's "The Shining" hotel way, specialy the brighter ones. It's just a matter of time before Chloe Sevigny gets her 90's hands in these.

I like the way these sort of send me the question "How goth can anyone get?" and then there's animal prints which do not ask anything but to be used with caution. The symmetry is flawless and the shapes interesting, the kind of thing you expect from a Paris couturier.

Chloe Sevigny for O.C.
I love this girl. So this has to stay street-fashion-y, and I wouldn't want her to change that. Her way is just the 90's and doc Martens and cotton and falling in the same category as Courtney Love.

I couldn't bring myself to chose only three or six looks, you can click to enlarge. It's simple, bright, flowing and majestic. The colors and textures are beautiful, I want to compliment it so badly the best thing I can come up with is betting my eyelashes that Anna Dello Russo will be photograph by Tommy Ton walking in the streets wearing Celine Resort 2011 anytime soon.

Bottega Veneta
I like Bottega. The casting is one of my favorites, and I like the clothes, and they always book Rose Cordero (upper left corner). The assembly is funny and bold and the colors bright and distinctive, a bit distant from its last Fall collection which was more about flow and elegance.

Anyway I have a hectic day ahead so, Ciao cari amici! or whatever.

Me encanta que para Celine elegiste los mismos que yo habría seleccionado. Los pantalones con transparencias, el vestido naranja con la capa inspirada en la región andina, y el amarillo, naranja y verde.
