Inspired by a recent visit to Miami, designer Olivier Rousteing unveils a colorful and pattern-packed Balmain Resort 2013 collection. Structured waistcoat blazers, micro-mini dresses and oversized trousers are the dominating silhouettes in this eye-catching series.

Edgy geometric motifs have been paired with seaside pastels to create a series of clash-happy ensembles. The checkerboard design is mixed with decorative florals and stripes, resulting in a whimsical, Alice in Wonderland-like combination. The lookbook also contains a number of other seasonal finds including mint green and lemon yellow hues, tailored leather and head-to-toe patterned frocks.

Whether you are looking for an offbeat pantsuit or a leg-barring cocktail dress, the Balmain Resort 2013 collection is sure to please your closets and hearts. Stats for Clashing Checkered Couture Trending: Older & Warm
