JUST AS THE SNOW IS PILING UP AND WINTER IS IN FULL SWING, RESORT 2016 BECKONS US WITH A GENEROUS HELPING OF TROPICAL PRINTS AND COLOURFUL SUMMERY LOOKS THAT ARE SURE TO DISPEL EVEN THE SLIGHTEST HINTS OF WINTER GLOOM.
Palm leaves, bamboo, orchids and lilies make up the colourful bouquet of prints and patterns for resort 2016. Presenting loose trousers in a print reminiscent of an infrared negative, ACNE Studios goes tropical with captivating red and light turquoise palm leaves. Louis Vuitton and Elie Saab also work with fine palm leaf prints to create captivating renditions of their classic handbags.
The Fendi Resort range centres on an abstraction of a bird of paradise flower, resulting in an extraordinary selection of looks. One of our favourites is a silk smock made from a beautiful soft yellow silk fabric featuring a light green and black rendition of this season’s Fendi floral motif. A little less elegant but a bit more fun, Stella McCartney and Proenza Schouler include captivating exotic designs in their upcoming collections. Stella McCartney contrasts bold floral prints on black with a flaming red lining, resulting in stunning eye-catching dresses, while Proenza Schouler uses spongy satin and tacked seams to create ultra fresh summer looks that feature an Asian bamboo pattern. With its exquisite selection of botanical themes, Resort is truly a season to look forward to.
