Fashion in Jamaica and the region exists, much to my annoyance, almost outside of an international aesthetic. It's my desire, then, to build a bridge between what is innately cultural, and the international industry, all the while highlighting trends and shifts within both spheres.

Akris Resort 2012
With knits, brights, flare-legged pants, leather, jumpsuits, paint-splatter prints, what was the one thing that tied the Akris Resort 2012 collection? The 70's.
I particularly liked how clean the designs were, even if I wasn't feeling every one. Accessories were a definite high-light, in a collection (and label) dedicated to the older fashion enthusiasts amongst us.
