Resort 2014: Roksanda Ilincic

The Roksanda Ilincic girl is as cool and bold as the hues that dominate this Resort 2014 collection. Unlike the colorblocking at Maxime Simoëns and Prabal Gurung, this collection deals almost exclusively in the varying hues of one color. It takes blue, a color often considered safe and boring, and adds an element of edginess by using fabrics of different finishes. Some swaths are full of shine. Some glitter. Others absorb all light.

The florals of this collection are more simplistic in nature, as if a child has taken a pair of scissors to a folded piece of construction paper and made a somewhat wonky chain of flowers or has begun absentmindedly doodling in the margins of a notebook. But that simplicity is offset by silhouettes that don't rest in the middle ground. They are either overblown and oversized or snug and sleek.

Like the blues seen throughout, there is nothing safe about them.
