The resort collections are pouring in! Here are a few more edited down versions of the collections themselves. You can view the previous post on Resort 2015 here.
It’s more than your average “active wear” collection. The Missoni print definitely enhances the appeal. With light knits and lurex, the collection features more comfortable clothing in bright pastel shades. One of the later looks with the indigo blue gown is stunning; perfection in simplicity. I also really like the colourful leopard print.
Preppy and functional. A large portion of this vast collection is just great separates. With it’s usual urban appeal, DKNY focuses more on oversize suits and outerwear. But the dresses and feather skirts are equally striking. The colour palette is very refined in staple shades and doesn’t deviate much. Perhaps more can be expected from the Donna Karan collection. Also, being the little child I am, I’m immediately attracted to the white sweatshirt in iridescent floral sleeves.
Escada always sticks to the refined, polished looks. It’s something they do well. The brand has been revived in recent times and they seem to be heading in the right direction. The prints are a nice change but the silhouettes are very much mature and universally flattering. Love the turquoise blazer with the curved hem, the gold gown isn’t a novel piece but it’s stunning nonetheless.
I get so excited to see a Burberry Prorsum collection! How can forget that gorgeous lace trench collection they did last spring? The drama is taken a notch up, the coats look more utilitarian than ever with the large button and billowing pockets. But the scalloped skirts and dip dyed lace trenches bring back the softness in the collection. I love the eggplant coloured dress. The prints are almost like a overview map of the countryside which is a nice touch.
There’s an 80’s androgyny vibe to the collection. I quite like the steel gray and blues, they add to that effect. But the outerwear in this collection is just stunning, especially the muted pink coats.
It’s a very well tailored collection. The overview is very plain but there are so many details. The sleeves are two-toned, the massive pockets look so seamless. I love the navy and pink print. The candy coloured suit looks amazing. I think they got it right with monochromes, prints, pastels and neon colours. They tried every major trend and did it well.
It’s very abstract but the themes are very powerful. It’s youthful, sporty, active but without going down any for the traditional routes. It’s very modern and visually stark. A bold statement overall but incorporating the separates is much easier. I love the simple pink organza gown, the checkered detailing and the bags!
I’m not too blown away by this collection but I do like the blue floral print. I love how it looks watercolored and hand-painted. The blazer in particular is so beautiful, I’ve been staring at it for 10 minutes. The collection is still quintessentially resort with lighter fabrics and more casual separates.
I really liked the first two looks, the black and white jumpsuit and the peachy orange dress. Beyond that, some of the outfits feel too forced to comply with that theme. The first two however look just right.
I recall her spring line which was one of the best of the season. This one is quickly shaping up well too. I love the detailed gowns (which is typically rare for resort). I could just describe how I like them all but it will be a very long post. The cornflower blue gown, the floral prints with draping, it all looks so elegant. I’m in awe.

I really try to get it but this time I just don’t. I can understand it as a concept and theme but in terms of wearability, I don’t find it appealing at all. Perhaps it’s just the bags and shoes that are worth it afterall.
It’s very sharp and pristine. I love the suits and the lovely wavy black shorts. It’s very symbolic and expected from the brand but it’s nice to see something that just works.
