Collette Dinnigan Resort 2014

As succulent and dripping in colour as an assorted bowl of summer fruit, Collette Dinnigan’s Resort collection is in glaring contrast to the dramatic black collection of Fall. The lust-worthy colour scheme is emboldened by dramatic oversized sequins, raffia detailing and English style embroidery to which she attached a moderate degree of the 1960s. Demure hemlines of pencil skirts and white cotton dresses were played off against brazen mini shorts, balanced with oversized shirts with mid length sleeves, while simple white structures were punctuated with mesh insets for a point of difference.

More than just a demonstration to the art of colour blocking (or mashing in some cases), Dinnigan juxtaposes the textures of sequins, lace and beading in contradiction of prints (a la Orla Keily) and the classic Breton stripe. Fishscale pencil skirts in ocean blue and orange heightened the nautical vibe, anchoring the collection in its strictly summer aspect.

Accompaniments were kept minimal, extending only to neutral summer wedges and a sleek metallic T-bar heel, along with a fraying wide brim straw hat. Dinnigan eschewed typical sexiness, but rather created, she said, for the woman who makes the clothes look sexy. The ball is in our court, ladies.
