Preen Resort 2010

Layers of shredded chiffon, architectural pleating and rampant asymetry might sound like qualifications for an Avant-garde collection in the vein of Margiella or Gailliano, but Preen’s Resort 2010 collection is as delightfully wearable as it is meticulous and futuristic.

The often juxtaposed  elements of hard soft in this collection (floaty chiffon blouses violently slashed, stiff, structured dresses in gentle peaches and lavenders) make for peices that are edgy, yet classic and totally sexy.  Yeah, they aren’t exploring new territories or making a socio-political statement, but sometimes clothes that actually function as clothes can be just as fun to look at.

No complaints about the styling of the presentation, either.  I love the simple strappy shoe repeated in each look and the models easy, slightly tousled hair.
