There is always something so romantic and feminine in Erin Fetherston's designs. Of course the clothes themselves change every season but her whimsical and delicate aesthetic still stays true. I can flip through a magazine or go over images of dresses on the Internet and easily spot something she has designed in the same way that a veteran editor for a high fashion magazine can easily recognize a signature red Valentino gown on the red carpet or a Karl Lagerfeld creation for Chanel, even before the words, "Who are you wearing?" are even uttered. And of course, her latest Look Book for her 2013 Resort collection is no exception -- I can see Erin all over that pink jacquard dress with the bows and delicate cut-outs in the back.
My favorite pieces in her collection are always her dresses, which this collection has absolutely no shortage of, but it also features plenty of separate pieces like skirts, jackets, tops, cardigans and even a couple of maxi dresses. The color palette is very light but also includes some punchy and bold colors (an orange and pink color-block shift dress, a very bold red peplum number, a variation of green and blue hues and a very delicious rose-colored pink.) The collection also exudes so much romanticism and feminism in all of its delicate lace, satin crepe, and chiffon along with an interesting integration of jacquard and sequins. Most of the pieces are on the dressier side, but can actually be great transitional pieces as somewhat hinted with the model going barefoot for the look book. With the right accessories, any girl could easily dress up or dress down any piece in the collection. And can I also point out how much I'm in love with the jeweled crown and exaggerated bunny-ears/hello kitty-esque bows in this look book. I would totally wear that crown if and when the right occasion calls for it!
