The least favorite clothing range is resort. Not all labels will dabble in it nor bother adding a department store created concept to their seasonal clothing selections. The reasons for this is an over spread of designs, which will dilute your collections where they count; Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer. “Resort” ranges are selective and indulgent. Still there are some acceptable outfits sans the offering to over-bored wifes (and mistresses), daughters from Wall Street executives taking warm climate holidays all the while a brutal winter kicks in for everybody else.
I like this collection, it is neon-lit, brutalist design and style, escaping the northern hemisphere cold to holiday in Brasilia (Brazil). So you can stare at the modernist architecture and the socialist dreamworld that never was, write a book about a parallel universe where everyone knows your name. Look at the sheer scale of human design as it attempts to rebel against nature, then think of the cosmos where our scale is less than an atom of significance. Make love not war, drink-good spirits, embellish in individualist power, study Wu-Wei, laugh at the world and the cycles of stupidity.
Well done Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne.
