It doesn't come as a surprise that the printed, flowing Kaftan was a big hit this Resort season. Resort might be becoming a more prominent season for designers (and the chicsters who love them) but that doesn't mean the traditional garments are not steadfast. After all, this is a season inextricable from its functional purpose: to clothe women who travel, to get our pale bodies into warm-weather garments gracefully. Our Network Partner, Chic Inspector, put together this spread to display the similarities. Normally, we'd be raising an eyebrow at the likeness, but it's Resort. You know, there's only so much that can be done and, in the end, women want kaftans. Simple as that. We predict our faithful designers will alter the maxi silhouette slightly come Spring Fashion Week. We predict tucks and cuffs at the bottom of those long lengths (you know, the maxi meets harem pant kind of thing) and that, quite simply, is what makes Spring and Resort two very different things.
