Is it just me or have the Resort collections been really good this season? I usually find Resort to be a bit a blah but this season collection after collection has inspired me.
My own outfits might be bombing big time with you guys on the blog, but hopefully you'll at least find some inspiration from the collections I'm showing you because they most definitely are inspiring me. It can be hard to find designers that create realistic everyday looks that you could easily recreate on a budget, but for me one label is Unravel. Ben Taverniti is beginning to create a signature look that isn't about trends, but rather creating a solid wardrobe. Yes, everything is out of the price range of most of us (£700 for a pair of jeans? Get a grip of yourself) but the point is there is a foundation for a great look there that is quite easy to replicate by shopping in more realistic shops.
For this season Taverniti uses Marant-esque lace up details on jeans and shiny PVC, jeans are deconstructed and made into peplum belts (a DIY screaming to happen!) and leather aviator jackets are mashed together with denim jackets to create oversized hybrids (head to your local vintage store and snaffle an 80's leather jacket and you'll get a similar look).
Last season Taverniti was responsible for creating my dream leather trousers and this season I just want the whole top look.
