Purple Prose

As reported in Thanks Sarah for sending the link.

Vibrant colors are one of the mainstays of resort. Reem Acra's collection features jewel tones from emerald to amethyst.

Prints — from bold florals to diagonal stripes — are the key to many a resort lineup. With Provence and the Riviera as influences, Christian Lacroix features painterly blooms and graphic black-and-white motifs. Fanciful embroideries and beading dominate Reem Acra's dresses. John Galliano's first resort collection for his diffusion line, Galliano, is infused with an eclectic romance — muted bouquet prints worn with quirky accessories. And Barbara Tfank works wild florals in her usual retro shapes.
