Chris Benz’s Resort ’11 Is Uptown With An Edge


While the menswear-inspired clothing trend doesn’t seem to be dying anytime soon, Chris Benz’ resort ’11 collection reminds us of exactly why being a girl is so much fun. Inspired by the Californian mid-century sculptor Sascha Brastoff, whose social milieu included the likes of Carmen Miranda, Benz ditches his NYC stomping grounds to re-imagine the ’50s Los Angeles woman while maintaining his signature Benz twist.

Ultra-elegant tweed jackets, delicately draped organza tops and quirky two pieces that pack a punch give this collection incredible depth while high-contrast Brastoff-printed slim suits give us a dose of the quirky flair that Benz always has up his sleeve.
