Narciso Rodriguez Resort 16

No one but Narciso has ever made a simple line look more stunning. That’s what American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour famously said about the work of New York based fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez. He is an institution in the history of American fashion. His stunning, simple lines have dressed some of the country’s most prestigious women, starting with Carolyn Bassett-Kennedy’s wedding dress in 1996 and definitely peaking but not ending with Michelle Obama’s inauguration dress in 2008.

The Resort 2016 collection is a strong confirmation of Rodriguez’ core values. The designs obviously shape and enhance the female body while the fabrics and cuts are chosen in a way that won’t prohibit any comfort or relaxed movement. The colour contrast can be strong and striking while the overall appearance of the collection stays very much contained. All in all Narciso Rodriguez’ work is about achieving the perfect balance. Which is probably why it flatters women of all body types and ethnicities. Narciso Rodriguez is a true friend.
