FIRST LOOK: ALICE + OLIVIA 2012

did starburst just come out with a clothing line?

If you want the style equivalent of masterfully crafted bubblegum pop, look no further than Alice + Olivia's 2012 Resort collection.  The range of striped mini-dresses, polka dot blouses, and floppy hats is as juicy and sweet-tart as any Bieber karaoke number, or any Britney remix blasted at a high school dance.

With a cheeky nod to Sixties mod, the clothes are graphic, color-drenched, and fun.  And if we don't see them in a Katy Perry video (or a Gwen Stefani paparazzi photo) by the end of the summer, it's not for lack of design.
