I’ve been following Moda Operandi since it opened. In my mind, this is really one of the most exciting online fashion retailers. It gives the fashion lover a chance to secure those special items that you see in a collection but can never find when it hits the retail market. I’ve drooled over many of the trunk shows on the site but I finally bit the bullet when the Karen Walker Resort 2012 sunglasses showed up.
They have a purple and fluoro green acetate frame and brown CR39 coloured lens. Now the waiting game begins as the delivery window is from Aug. 20, 2011 – Dec. 20, 2011. I’m hoping it’s earlier.
I have a feeling Moda Operandi temptations will become reality much more often now that I’ve dived in.
The vibrant gowns sealed the deal on theÂ Giambattista Valli Resort 2012 collection for me. Â I wanted to wear them all.
I was glad to see some tasteful animal print too.
Proenza Schouler’s Resort 2012 collection sees the boys moving away from Navajo blankets inspirations. Â They’ve thrown in patchwork, marble prints and a 70s colour palette. Â Amazingly it works with typical Proenza flare.
I can’t wait to see the complete lineup of accessories. The handbags and shoes are looking pretty good from these shots.
Peter Pilotto‘s Resort 2012 collection is probably hard on the eyes for some people. I think that obnxious factor is what indeared me to this collection. The prints are photographs of classical jacquard and lace that were fractured and zoomed in to give a microscopic feel.
Givenchy Resort 2012.
Be still my beating heart.
This more than makes up for the Givenchy fall winter 2011 – 2012 collection that I didn’t enjoy all that much. The accessories were quite good for the fall winter 2011 – 2012 collection though.
Preen Resort 2012 is the stuff that dreams are made of. I’m truly, madly and deeply in love with what Justin Thorton and Thea Bregazzi have got going on for this resort season. The collection has loose Japan references influenced by a kimono Thea bought many years ago.
The Preen Resort 2012 collection can be pre-order till June 22, 2011 on Moda Operandi. Their collection photos are amazing, check it out before they are gone.
