Resort 2015 : Part One

The Resort 2015 collections are starting to trickle in, with the destination cruise collections like Chanel, Louis Vuitton releasing ahead of time.

I’m following a new format for my runway fashion posts where I club 10-12 collections in one post. It will be image heavy! If you’re looking for specific designers, try the tags. We start off with Dior!

 

Dior

Set upon a cruise over the Hudson river, the collection felt very Dior-esque with its large but soft prints. The minimalism and cuts gave it more edge. I really love the sharp suits, the pleated blazer, cinched at the waist. The use of scarves kept the looks very airy and young. Overall, the result is a mix of smart and colourful outfits. I love the dresses with the large floral prints, they have a hand-painted look to them which feels very authentic.

Bottega Venetta

You can’t really go wrong with pastels. Even the more detailed looks with pleats and prints have an effortless casual look to them. I really love the lilac and powder blue dresses with the floral print. But perhaps the greater selling point will be the matching clutches which are perfection.

Cut25 by Yigal Azrouël

You can rely on  Yigal Azrouël to give you the next cool suit and also prints! This time we have both and it makes me wish the collection had more!  I love the tropical abstract print trousers, the mango coloured dress sits fittingly in the collection. I also really liked crop top and skirt. The triangular hem on the top makes it distinct and the print is enough to wow anyway.

Chanel

I’m always on the fence with Chanel collections. I love that all of them tell a story and a there’s always a focus. But over the last fews years it feels like there is less finesse. With such a large collection you are bound to love some and hate some, but I wish it was more constricted. I’ve glossed over most of the unattractive looks. The styling with the large hair looks very retro (and I don’t mean that in a nice way). Another destination show set in Dubai and you can see the cultural references picked in the makeup, the harem pants, the long kurta etc. The mini headdresses look completely chic for some outfits whereas for some it just looks like appropriation gone terribly wrong. There are outfits here with pastel embroidery over sheer fabrics and that’s what I liked best. I do like the simpler pieces like the last navy outfit with square sequins.

Etro

The colour palette for this collection is so strong, that’s enough to win me over. Yellow with salmon pink and mint with orange is so fun. I love the floral printed trousers but I think we can all agree that the paisley pink dress wins hands down! I also love that it features so many coats and jackets!

Oscar de la Renta

Go through the images below first and watch yourself fall in love with all of them. That purple cap sleeve coat with a jumpsuit is perfection! I didn’t care much for the monochrome and suits when they brought out the fuschia and blue dresses, they look lovely! I’m not a big fan of the caged look (I read too much into it) but the cocktail dress version in white and silver is stunning! I also really liked the embroidered dresses, so beautiful.

Just Cavalli

If you’re ever looking for a tropical print, Just Cavalli will never disappoint. The styling the shoes, it all blends perfectly. The looks a are bold prints with with a more sporty look. The printed pants and leggings are what I like best. If you were a fan of the floral bomber jacket, you might like to step it up with these.

Louis Vuitton

Hosted in Monaco, the Louis Vuitton collection had abundant aquatic references! The coral colour in the first look is symbolic and sets the tone for the show. The jagged hemlines throughout inspired by deep sea plant life and branches. The prints too ran along similar themes and resulted in abstract motifs. While the pieces together are a bit much for my taste, the separates are stunning! You know, you want those pink trousers!

Veronica Beard

I love the collared white top. Veronica Beard always brings indigenous prints to modern silhouettes and this time as well, floral and tribal prints mesh well together. I also like the short leather jacket!

Maison Martin Margiela

It’s not the most fascinating but MMM stays true to its clientele. With crisp suits and outerwear, the collections has the basics covered.
