His designs are simple yet chic and the colours screams ‘I’m irresistible’. Christian Siriano resort 2015 collections was inspired by the work of young Charleston-based painter Teil Duncan whom he asked to collaborate with him for his Resort Lookbook where models posed against a wall of Duncan’s paintings while she worked in the background.
The colors made the first impression, then the diversity in silhouette. A painterly floral brocade, done in yellow and green or pink and red, looked best on a dress with a structured top and handkerchief skirt. A long lavender silk dress had a panel of peach pleating attached to one hip, and there was a shorter take on the likable silhouette in magenta and guppy green.
Siriano’s oversize palm print in burnout organza worked well on a strapless ball gown with a slightly shorter front, and also on a simple sheath. A few looks could have been deleted from the lineup, particularly a magenta silk shirt with blocks of yellow and green—too loud in an already loud room—and a black-and-white long-sleeve column gown, which had a mountain of appliqués. But Siriano generally seems to understand what his customer wants, and is emboldened to give it to her.
What are your thoughts? We sure love them all especially the ready to wear collection in pink.
