With every shift in season, there follows an expected pattern of certain trends. This is even more the case with resort wear, considering the season was originally created to satiate an ever growing consumer appetite for collection worthy pieces between the massive feasts of fall and spring. Key to every successful resort collection is the ability to work new ideas in with current trends set by the past season all the while maintaining a keen foresight for the season ahead.
Rarely is this done with such animate ease as it is with the Richard Nicoll Resort 2012 collection. Incorporating dazzlingly refined metallics and coquettish nudes with structured and flowing silhouettes, the collection is an impressive neoteric mixture that speaks to the moment as well as to an intuitive progression forward.
Case in point is a sheer pieced nude ankle skimming maxi dress with near pink piping on the seams and at the waist. Another noteworthy look is a white piped nude lingerie inspired bustier paired with a metallic brocade-like paneled pencil skirt. The collection also contains several more pieces in the same breathtaking fabric such as an ankle length version of the skirt, a strapless bustier and perfectly tailored strapless paneled lingerie inspired dress. With pieces like these, next season can wait – if not for just a little while longer.
