A GUIDE FOR YOUR SUMMER WARDROBE

Resort, Cruise, Pre-Spring, Pre-Fall – these sartorial terms all refer to the the Holiday season collections. Conjuring images of the glitzy, sun-kissed beaches of St Tropez or glamorous winter escapes such as St Moritz, these ‘mid-season’ or ‘pre-collections’ traditionally targeted jet-setting clients who holidayed at exclusive resorts or aboard luxurious cruise ships. Showcased on the catwalks of Paris, Milan and New York, these collections have become important events in the fashion calendar, now more so than ever as international travel becomes more popular and accessible.

Whether you’re dressing for a pool party, a barbecue, a wedding or for summer cocktails, you can take some inspiration, looks and trends from the runway. Below we share some of our favourite key trends from 2019 international Resort collections:

Shimmer
Metallic sheens, shine and glitz from fabrics to accessories were seen in an array of colours on the catwalks of Gucci, Baja East and Christian Siriano.

Florals
Always popular in summer months, new-generation floral fabrics have been paired with romantic cuts this season, as demonstrated on the catwalks of Louis Vuitton and Erdem.

Saturated Colours
Masterfully presented in the Sonia Rykiel 2019 collection, strong colour saturation is not for the faint-hearted, but it is a favourite trend of ours for Summer.
