It is a rare and wondrous thing when the Resort collections (you know, those clothes that hit stores in late fall and make everyone’s holidays just a little bit happier) actually make you think of resorts. In recent years, Resort, aka Pre-Spring, has been a decidedly serious affair: officewear with an airplane fur, say, or those quiet sheaths we call “staples.” Not so this time around. Think tropical prints, animalia, paillettes, and platforms. You are going on a holiday and it’s called your daily life . . . To celebrate the crazy beauty that is soon to hit your closet, Adriana Lima (mom, model, activist) here gives us her version of the Swerve. It’s an attention-seeking little dance that perfectly suits these attention-seeking frocks . . . and who among us doesn’t secretly wish to turn a few heads every now and then?
