THE NEW LOOK: “CUL­TUR­ALLY AP­PRO­PRI­ATE”

Female (Singapore) - - NEWS - – IJ

The new Re­sort col­lec­tions bring back some much needed fun and glam­our in dress­ing up.

Chanel goes big on Greek an­tiq­uity with Athe­nian dresses com­plete with gilded coin but­tons and head­bands. Louis Vuit­ton blends old and mod­ern Ja­panese art by trans­lat­ing inky land­scape paint­ings into the weave on jacquard suits, and Kan­sai Ya­mamoto’s flam­boy­ance into ac­ces­sories. Dior pays trib­ute to the raw beauty of Wild West Amer­ica with Georgia O’Ke­effe-wor­thy jack­ets and Zorro-style hats. Re­sort 2018’s ex­u­ber­ant in­ter­pre­ta­tion of folk cos­tume gets un­usu­ally lit­eral, but – rather than feel­ing tacky – brings back some much needed fun and glam­our in dress­ing up.
