The Balenciaga Resort 2011 collection is a mishmash of variety. However, the collection kept its cohesiveness by channeling grandma prints and neon hues. Think old lady Hamptons-chic meets club kid.

It's a complicated, but fun, collection, with more than enough going on. The color-blocking in the Balenciaga Resort 2011 collection will have many of us going over the top in our upcoming summer ensembles.

Implications - Classic styles are becoming more integrated into the modern realm of fashion. There is a demand from consumers for more toned down patterns and prints instead of a complicated, overly stylized aesthetic. The fashion industry recognizes this need for a more simple look and will produce pieces that are more friendly to the subdued style lover.
