Looking for an antidote to the holiday season’s frilly frocks and nonnegotiable sequins? Resort 2012 to the rescue. Designers championed sharp lines and color-blocked neon, from Giuseppe Zanotti’s multihued patent-leather sandals to the bright sherbet shades in Christopher Kane’s new collaboration with J Brand. If Stella McCartney’s Hawaiian-print tunic top is a bit out of your reach, there are always Topshop’s cheeky tropical-print leggings. Click through for all the options.

We watched one high-profile designer hawk frozen treats; another just had a meltdown. We loved weddings this year—especially English ones with brides named Kate or any of the now legal in New York same-sex nuptials. And we learned to never, ever underestimate the power of Mother Nature. Or Anna Wintour. Click through for the most fashionable highlights of 2011.
In 2011 alone there were over 200 posts about editorials featuring models represented by Ford. Whittling down this figure to just 10% of the mountainous total was always going to prove difficult especially given the quality of talent brought to bear on every story. The editorials selected herein can therefore be viewed as a cross section of Ford Models in the year 2011.
We can’t resist a one-piece that does double duty. Belted, Kate Kosushkina’s splatter-paint dress looks like a matched set without losing any of the ease of a throw-on-and-go shift. Stacked Mary Janes and wavy beach-ready curls soften the print’s Jackson Pollock pop. And while this shot may have you longing for warmer days, Kosushkina’s look would be winter-perfect paired with dark tights and cropped jacket. Turn to any of the Resort deliveries now in stores for an art-inspired dress you can wear from hot to cold.
