Chris Benz's 2012 resort collection was inspired by Bermuda, which translates to cheery tropical prints, lightweight chambray, and, of course, Bermuda shorts! "I grew up in rainy Seattle so I have a special place in my heart for anywhere that's sunny and fun," the designer told us. "For resort, I looked into great old vacation spots, and realized that Bermuda always gets overlooked. I researched the history and found out that it was a secret resort spot for all the royals." Benz introduced swimwear this season, and he punched up the line with collaborations from his accessory designer pals: Alejandro Ingelmo shoes, Patricia Underwood hats and The Woods jewelry.
