Juan Carlos Obando Designs First Resort Collection


Los Angeles-based, Columbian-born designer Juan Carlos Obando presented a collection of ten resort looks this week to international buyers and press. The resort line, which will sell exclusively at Barneys in the U.S., consists of “pieces that together look very formal, but taken apart can be much more casual,” explained Obando. Building on his theme of distressed, worked-over fabrics (we especially loved the dirt-covered, dust bowl fabrications from his spring 2010 collection), Obando's luxe fabrics are treated with dyes, sanding, and washing. The resort collection has the kind of transformative powers one needs to see in pieces priced $900 to $3,100.
