"If versatility is that key word that makes a fashion season collection rank above the rest, then Vera Wang got it right on as she showed her Resort 2010 collection in New York on Thursday, June 18.
"I wanted this collection to feel light, airy, and athletic … pieces that reflect a resort mood yet sophisticated enough to go urban," Wang said in a statement. Naming the line "Sandy Lane," after a luxurious premier resort spot in the Caribbean-island of Barbados, Wang mixed vivid tropical colors like peacock, chartreuse, and orange alongside a variety of skin-tone shades like nude, blush, a light sandy brown and rosy-red accents.
Wang kept silhouettes narrow, long and tastefully close to the body, and toyed with hemlines of asymmetry in both upper and lower spheres. She invigorated a new sense of dimension and volume by layering colors, themes and accessories. A series of nude-colored dresses and tops crafted under a delicate lace were both seductively suggestive and aesthetically appreciated. Pairing "tresses," a personal moniker Wang coined for tunic-dresses, with lace shorts and skirts, charcoal knit cardigans, and her go-to "basketball" T, casual was vamped up with iridescent sequined daisy chain accessories and sparkling hippie scarves.
Draped, wrapped and overlapped, Vera Wang's dexterity with diaphanousness is skillful, and from the West Indies to New York she executed effortless chic sophistication to perfection."
