Alice + Olivia Resort 2015 Collection
I like this collection, but I think all of the clothes are for skinny tall models only. And I love the dark haired model – she has such an interesting face! Oh, and I have to edit this to say I like all of the looks except for the first one.
That first one is so childish.
Like I said in my own comment, five year old’s coloring project.
Well stop stalking me and echoing my sentiments! 😉
I think it’s the proportions in addition to the coloring book pattern.
Just think how bad that first one will look on SJP!
Agreed. Being a short curvy woman there is NO WAY i could pull off most of this. But it’s still wonderful.
I would love to wear that first one because it’s just to cute and unexpected, but not sure where I would wear it to. halloween party?
There are plenty of separates here that, I think, would work on a range of body types, depending (of course) on what they’re paired with.
Picturing the Santorini-esque print dress on Lupita, brb.
I was thinking Emma Watson, but on Lupita with some orange pumps/sandals? I die.
I was picturing Florence Welch in the floral pant suit.
Yes! I was just thinking Lupita could rock some of these. Admittedly, this is like thinking that an eagle could soar majestically over the mountains. But still.
Odd place to write a “Deep Thought” on the Chanel knock-off dress. I wouldn’t want people reading my crotch all the time.
Gives “Love is in the air” a whole new twist.
On the avian prints, they could’ve put ” ‘The birds seem to be calling me name,’ thought Caw.”
Right? It sort of reminded me of that dress Laura made on Season 3 of Project Runway that said “No Nuts” or something across the model’s butt.
It was made from a burlap peanut sack and was skillfully pleated to say “For Nuts Only.”
Going from the first to the second look was jarring. Love the floral dress and the polka dot jacket. I could wear those.
I like these overall. The looks are breezy and a little whimsical (in some cases), but the color and pattern pairings are sophisticated.
Unlike the Stella McCartney Resort (my eyes, my eyes) I could see somebody wearing these clothes at a resort. God bless Alice + Olivia.
Also when she put her prints together in suits they didn’t make my eyes bleed.
Yes. Whimsical. That is what resorts should be. I love the bold colors and the prints and such cute separates, which make sense for resort wear.
Those culottes or whatever they are give me hives.
GAUCHOS! I remember them from the 70s. Horrible.
I WANT THE BLACK AND WHITE SUNFLOWER SUIT. NEED.
I’d like it more if the scale of the print were smaller.
I really like #5 down. I know it’s a lot of floral, but I actually don’t mind the two pieces together. I’m thinking Emily Blunt or Emma Watson might rock it.
I love it too. I’m seeing Amanda Seyfried.
Ooh! She would be a good choice!
Ted Baker did that house print better.
These clothes are fresh and cute. I love the houses.
This is all so adorable, I don’t know what to do with myself!
The city and butterfly print dress is calling my name. But this whole collection is so CUTE. Not a single awkward/overdesigned/weirdly shaped/unflattering item in the whole bunch. An actual human being can where any of those outfits in real life and not feel ridiculous or stupid.
Fantastic. That floral bomber jacket is TO DIE FOR.
The gown in the last full sized shot is a showstopper.
I like that they placed the stretchy waistband of the bomber jacket at the actual waist.
The proportions are really well done overall.
So cute! Well….except for those giant khaki gauchos! Ye Gads those are not cute!
I thought they were culottes. Either way, ick.
Culottes and gauchos are very similar, but culottes are cut like a skirt and you can’t tell they’re pants at first glance. Gauchos are wide legged cropped pants like were once worn by Latin American cowboys.
gauchos! that might be the right word. I called them culottes, like @demidaemon:disqus
I am smitten!
Except for the giant daisy-splosion. That one reminds me of so many of my middle school outfits and accessories from the 90s.
cute except for the sleveless cable knit turtleneck SWEATER and those flat shoes are stupid. I want everything else
I love me some red pants. Thumbs up.
I would love me some legs that would be able to wear those red pants and look like that!
Those have to be some heavily photoshopped legs in those red pants…There’s no way they could be that long proportionally. Someone got really excited about the ‘stretch’ button.
A lot to like here. On paper, that 3rd look with the sleeveless sweater and gigantic gauchos shouldn’t work at all, and yet somehow, the model looks adorable. Then again, she does have legs for days.
That first dress looks like a five year old’s coloring project. Not a great start, especially followed by *shudder* culottes *shudder*. however, the rest of the collection redeemed itself. I like for the most part, even when the slits and skirt shapes might get a bit too tricky.
It’s certainly cute but I suspect only wearable for those who are tall and modelesque.
I want those print pants. Like, WANT those print pants. Sew three pairs of them together and send them over so I can wear them please!
Wow! I really love this. Much more than I probably should? I think the styling and photography have a lot to do with it but it’s fun + chic and that’s what mama likes.
Gawd, that black floral shirt dress is so gorgeous, I might need to sell one of my children so it will be mine.
I will fight you for it! I love a shirt dress and I love a floral on a black background.
That graphic sunflower is calling my name — I’ll take the coat and trousers, please! — but is it just me, or does something not look quite right with their bare knees? I know lighting and photoshop probably play a part in this, but something just looks a little off.
Lena Dunham would totally wear the first dress. The collection overall is very pretty but I cannot see anyone who isn’t model thin and tall wearing this well, especially the gaucho pants and the shorts.
Lena would definitely like that first dress and look silly in it. If I was dressing her, I’d put her in some of those print pants with simple tops and those awesome laceless oxfords. For a dressier event I’d put her in that white or pale pink outfit in the thumbnails with the shoes from the yellow/tan outfit (#3). As long as she wore a good bra and stood up straight she’s look like a grownup for a change.
I like. This collection definitely suits the tall and slim girls with athletic figures (read: not me.) Particularly fond of the city-print skirt, embroidered-bird dress, and the button-front maxi dress. Some fantastic patterns and prints. It’s nice to see something fun, bright, bold, and wearable. This collection is Florence Welch’s to own. I could see Kristen Stewart in the floral pantsuit, too. Maybe for a Flowerbomb ad.
Florence Welch would look amazing in all of this. Good call.
LOVE!!! Every. SIngle. Piece! Can someone please buy me those laceless oxfords? I would wear them all summer long.
Holy crap I just noticed the little car purse. That is so cute, I can’t help myself.
I love so much of this! And it makes me feel all smiley! Will never be on board with pleated culottes, but so much adorableness up in here.
Great shapes, proportions, colors. Youthful and sophisticated.
I LOVE the funky patterns, particularly the butterfly cityscape dress- so whimsical and fun! However, I’m not down with the trend of pairing white with off-white…it never works for me and I hope it ends soon. Also, the brown shoes stick out as eyesores on many of the outfits and to me, do not match well. Love the clothes though!
I LOVE the bird dress so much.
Coming here to comment on that one. That bird dress is TO DIE.
Love. But lose the hosiery!
Love that tote bag in the second shot.
I like almost all of these. Mostly a wearable, stylish collection.
I love it all! It’s whimsical yet sophisticated.
I pretty much love these, but are my eyes deceiving me? Are the models wearing stockings? Could it possibly be a thing again?
LOVE the accessories…especially the black/white shoes (both oxfords and sandal-ish ones). I like the clothes in general, but I don’t think a lot of “gals on the street” would be able to wear them…boobies and/or hips are going to throw everything off.
one of everything, please!!
As an individual whose skin tone is essentially “see-through”, I am loving the hosiery.
I love everything! That first dress is too darn cute for words.
Quite a few clothes I like, but I mostly love that skirt with the house. It’s amazing.
The cut of these is odd – a very high waist line on most, with a short skirt, is only going to flatter very petite thin people. That said, there’s a lot of details I like and would kill for the tailoring of the red pants (if I happened to be of the size that could wear those red pants).
It’s a childish look. Drop the waist a bit.
Am a fan.
Taylor Swift should really go in this direction. She’s the only human that could wear these anyway.
I loooove love love.
I love every piece here, but I would kill a hobo for that parrot dress.
I love this collection, the whole thing. It’s cohesive, bright, stylish, flattering. A win.
The daisy suit is freaking awesome! And I could totally see Lena Dunham rocking the first dress. The rest is hit or miss for me (a sleeveless knit turtleneck sweater?) but it’s mostly at hit.
Is it just me or are these photos awful? I don’t buy a single one as being non-Photoshopped. And, yes, I know that all fashion photos are Photoshopped, but these read as if they’ve taken a face, an outfit, a body, and a background and Frankenstein-ed them all together.
Love. Want it all.
wow. truly love some, truly don’t others. no middle ground here for me. that sixth shot — LOVE the orange top with the bright, colorful print skirt. in that first pic … slightly concerned about the placement of those particular words. lol.
Fresh, young, and sassy. Love the colorful palette, and the Italian seaside villa prints. What a happy collection.
It’s kicky! It’s mod! It’s 60’s rific!
OK, the black jacket with white polka dots?
I bought my daughters a cardigan almost like that at Target this fall. Fashion forward? Not. So. Much.
Adorbs! I can see Florence Welch rocking some of those large floral print numbers. The Mediterranean Houses remind me of the west coast of Italy, where I was lucky to spend some time many years ago…….now I really want to go back. Great shoes & purses too. Not a loser in the bunch–well done, A + O!
I just got back from 2 weeks on the west cost of Italy and southern France. It was heavenly, and I want to go back now, permanently! And I want to take this collection with me.
Outside of what I call the “scribble dress” [look #1], all of these are very wearable. Adore the bird print.
I love the blue and yellow skirt. It’s so simple, shown with a plain white shirt, and for some reason it just made me stop. Beautiful and not overdone.
That floral pantsuit. Were I about five inches taller and rich, it would be MINE. And I know it’s made for a woman, but with some alterations, I’d really love to see it on the right man.
IN LOVE with this collection! I love the butterfly/house print dress, the colors are SO beautiful!
There isn’t anything here I don’t love. I especially want that last dress.
I love this! Don’t get me wrong, I could never dream of wearing it, what with me being short and 50. But it’s like head to toe happiness!
Oh, I love this whole heartedly! Wish I could afford it.
Between this and the Thom Browne collection last week, I am loving fashion right now – playful, colorful, and wearable. Also, flat shoes, yay!
Cute stuff. Wish I had the money, youth, and figure to pull it off.
