New York: The works of surrealist erotica photographer, Irina Iconesco were the seed of Jill Stuarts inspiration for Resort. Far from being erotic, Stuart looked to the more youthful, romanticised aspects of the photographers work, creating a line up of contemporary shapes, juxtapositioned with a graceful – almost 70’s – fluidity. Bohemian blouses and lady-like dresses bloomed in black and dusty pink florals, similar to the roses in Ionesco’s work. Flowers also came appliquéd, most notably applied to a white tunic, layered over a linen t-shirt and wide leg white pants, creating a fresh and breezy offering to eveningwear. Stuart has a skill for pinpointing key trends, and distilling them for her customer; for Resort she hit the nail on the head with a lavender suede button brown midi skirt that offered easy transition from a day-to-night piece. Fresh, modern and romantic. – Anna Ross
