Neoprene Dreams: Surf’s Up for Resort 2012 Collections

Resort 2012 collections have definitely come in with the tides with week, however these sporty offerings are far from washed up. Designers are riding a collective wave straight to Ron’s Surf Shop for inspiration. Neoprene-inspired garments reigned supreme many runways, most notably at Micheal Kors– who went all out with the yellow wetsuit, thick black zipper, scuba belt and requisite bandaged big toe (killer waves and gnarly reef, dude!!! ),  Diane Von Furstenburg– who took a subtle approach to the look with an acid yellow scuba top and electric orange, neoprene-inspired mini-dress, and Derek Lam– who managed to tread in both pools, with a full-out (but completely wearable), colourblocked scuba top and a decidedly understanded tan cropped jacket, complete with black scuba-trim.

Surf’s Up? Oh fo’ sho’!
