Grecian Draping: Resort 2010/Versace 1995

It's no surprise given the state of the economy that over the past few season's resort has become a very important collection for designer's as it highlights their statements in a vision that is more clear & concise than runway presentations. And of course we at Vnyc like to look at what's going on in fashion to fuel our own vintage buys to elicit a contemporary feeling.

Looking at Michael Kors pragmatic Resort Collection for 2010 instantly reminded us of one of our favorite new buys, this mid 90's lilac Grecian draped GIANNI VERSACE skirt. Kors used similar jersey draping to full urban effect while evoking the disco-fied glory days of the 70's, while Versace made his romantic draped vision boldly feminine. We love Versace's insightful play on what you could call a more sophisticated sarong and on a breezy day vacationing, what sounds better than an ultra-packable, fuss-free, fluid option in such a soothing palette?

P.S: Take note of Kor's savvy styling trick, the heavy military influenced belt is a great counter point for such fluid jersey. It instantly adds weight and more substantial focus for the eye.
