Ang Lee’s 2007 thriller, ‘Lust, Caution’, set in China in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s, was the starting point for Jenny Packham’s Resort collection.
“I was inspired by the idea of presenting a collection of eveningwear that fused traditional Far Eastern style with Western fashions,” said the designer, who often looks to films for inspiration.
Jenny Packham 2015 Resort Collection
Jenny Packham’s 2015 Resort Collection is simply stunning – vibrant jewel colours, gorgeous beading and beautifully cut dresses designed to accentuate a feminine figure.
This was by no means a retro collection and as a result the 1940s East-West influence was very subtle. Subtle kimono style sleeves appeared throughout, including on a white chiffon gown beaded with tiny pink-and-blue bugles. The embellishment on a flutter-sleeve V-neck dress had a slight Chinese Imperial feel.
Harper’s Bazaar described the collection as ‘Light, embellished occasion wear perfect for balmy evenings…’ and here lies the magic – a collection of beautiful dresses, guaranteed to make every woman feel wonderfully elegant and chic, especially if attending a summer wedding as a guest. The detail and embellishment on these dresses would also make them perfect as an alternative wedding dress for the contemporary bride!
Jenny Packham is renowned for her glamorous style, luxurious quality and resolute craftsmanship of her designs and is applauded for introducing a contemporary approach to design, colour, styling, accessories and imagery. The luxury design house now produces several collections aside from her Resort Collection.
With flagship stores and showrooms situated in London, Paris and New York and a presence in the world’s most discerning stores from Harrods and Neiman Marcus to Bergdorf Goodman and Net-A-Porter, Jenny Packham’s brand appeal and demand is clearly global!
If you’re planning to wear a Jenny Packham dress, we’d love to hear from you, especially if it’s one of these gorgeous designs from Jenny Packham’s 2015 Resort Collection!
