Resort ’13: It’s A Jungle Out There-------
Yves Saint Laurent first introduced his safari jacket in 1968, and since then, it’s become a classic that designers continue to reference season after season. For Resort, Altuzarra, Emilio Pucci, and Salvatore Ferragamo have all given the rugged staple an urban update. Others, including Derek Lam and Rebecca Minkoff, showed sportier versions cut from denim and ripstop fabric. Based on the utility jackets we’ve seen on street-style stars like Candice Lake and Ece Sukan, we’re betting on the safari topper as this summer’s layering answer to last year’s ubiquitous jean jacket.
