3.1 Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang Resort 2010

Highlights: Sweatshirt material, chunky bracelets, inventive neutrals (sage green), booties

In my book, Phillip Lim can do no wrong. I'm loving this collection and its laid-back elegance. These clothes are made for a woman who wants to look good, but doesn't want to spend tons of time thinking about what to wear.

Highlights: Flow. Nothing is skintight! Basic colors...very basic.

My favorites are the first two outfits in this picture. The pattern on the dress reminds me of a speckled bird's egg... so pretty! And that second outfit -- I'd love to wear a jumpsuit like that, all flowy, comfy-looking and very 70's.

Highlights: Drapey khakis, socks and sandals, oxblood outerwear.

I think this collection is the most "unlike" him that we've seen so far, but to me, this is a welcome change. Make no mistake, this is still recognizably Alexander Wang and there are definitely some familiar motifs, but there's something refreshing going on here. I love that drapey dress (or is it a vest and skirt?) in the first picture, as well as the folded up skirt, and the trench coat with the exaggerated sleeve tabs, and the -- well, you see where this is going. I like everything in this collection!

Highlights: The basic white shirt, reconstructed; leather shorts, sheer materials.

There's a lot of dressing inspiration to be had in these two collections, as usual. When was the last time you saw a blogger that wasn't inspired by Wang? Even I am!
