Acne's resort 2014 collection mixed night and day elements in an odd way that worked. There were electric-blue suede flatforms with plenty of utilitarian straps paired with fluid satin gowns knotted haphazardly at the knee; silk gazar bustiers worn over a cotton-organdy parka and matching trousers. The most striking part of the collection was the clever mix of magentas, blues, and greens, and iridescent sequins that never overwhelmed.
Later, Prabal Gurung presented a lengthy collection of graphic separates accented with navy, poppy red, and citron yellow. The best looks had unusual touches that seemed fanciful for resort, like raccoon fur woven in a black-and-white intarsia, or ostrich feathers rendered in a white and red dégradé on a blocked halter dress that seemed like it was reappropriated for a cocktail party from the tennis court.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
