ATMOSPHERE IS EVERYTHING AND WHEN IT COMES TO PRINTS FOR RESORT 2016, DESIGNERS ARE LOOKING TO ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIOR DECOR TO EVOKE A SENSE OF TIME AND SPACE LIKE A CANDID CASE OF STRIPPING DOWN THE WALLS.
Nicolas Ghesquière triumphed with prints as he took the route between something regal and something wild. Palm Springs infused Louis Vuitton Resort 2016 with the in-to-out sight of the architecturally stunning Californian Bob Hope estate. The collection’s prints walked through the full spectrum of influence from 1950s futurism with a drop of baroque mixed with the heavy metals of barren desert chaos. Karl Lagerfeld followed the same spatial trajectory by taking Resort 2016 to South Korea under the roof of another spellbinding space designed by visionary architect, Zaha Hadid. Seoul’s K-Pop beat mixed with traditional patterns and South Korean handcraft and collided under the roof of Dongdaemun Design Plaza, which brought an added futuristic element to Chanel’s printed utopia. Alberta Ferretti looked to the wandering nomad to decipher the place where she feels best, which manifested in prints to celebrate the unstoppable outdoor bounty of Bali’s natural gems. Valentino and J.W. Anderson looked to variation inspiration of floral tapestry seemingly fused with the room’s graphic lines. Emilio Pucci’s prints mixed interiors with geometry for his signature vintage form. Gucci’s Alessandro Michele kept the richness of his prints matched with the interior abode that was sacred in style like the iconographic synergy of his Resort 2016 campaign Florentine villa.
