The jellyfish-like ruffles and textured bonnets add an oceanic theme to the Balenciaga Resort 2013 collection. The soft muted palette is paired with statement-setting accessories and eye-catching silhouettes.

While some designers are choosing streamlined resort wears, Balenciaga brings a more whimsical and profile-challenging lookbook to the stage. The collection is full of contemporary pantsuits, dimensional hemlines and striking textured accessories. The light breezy fabrics and romantic silhouettes are contrasted by bold gladiator stilettos and rocker-chic clutches. Although this lookbook appears to be inspired by creatures of the sea, don't expect to find any mermaid beach do's on these models. The designer has opted to finish things off with old-school diving caps and slicked-back ponytails.

The Balenciaga Resort 2013 collection is full of charming seaside details and picturesque ensembles.
