You may need to apply some sunscreen before previewing the new Kenzo resort '14 collection. At least, that's the impression the lookbook makes. Filled with shaded ladies facing the sun — or, at least, a very bright studio light — the newest designs come packed with cheerful prints. Some are quirky and clashing; others are in matchy-matchy pairs; and all in a tropical theme we'd gladly wear any time of the year.
Detailed with just a little bit of ruffle at the hems and across the chest, the collection also perfectly balances sleek, streamlined form with a bit of frill in some of the brightest colors around — which, of course, look their best when drenched in a few rays. Topped off with printed sunnies and ending with extra chunky, strappy sandals, the collection is just about everything we want from a dream vacation. Sunshine included.
