6 takeaway trends from the resort 2017 shows

Look ahead, not that far into the distance, and you’ll see next summer’s fashion trends are already breaking.

Look ahead, not that far into the distance, and you’ll see next summer’s fashion trends are already breaking. Yep, the designers have presented their resort collections, telling us what clothes we’ll be wanting to wear when this winter’s over, but next spring hasn’t quite started. Here’s your need to know for resort, our favourite in-between fashion season…

Micro vs macro florals
Scale them down or blow them up, that was the attitude to florals for resort. Designers from Phillip Lim to Erdem did ditsy florals, while Christopher Kane focused his zoom on pansies.

Sporty jackets
Bombers, macs, parkas… take your pick from the most practical of outerwear options for 2017. Louis Vuitton’s sport-themed Rio show was packed full of posh raincoats, while Givenchy, Coach, Sacai and more presented decorative takes on the bomber.

Out of proportion
Bell sleeves, flared trousers and huge peplums distorted the silhouettes at Ellery, Delpozo and Carolina Herrera. Your new season hero piece? A pair of extra, extra wide leg trousers.

Think pink
Baby pink is the sweetest colour for resort 2017, best paired with a more sour side colour like mustard, Roksanda Illincic’s choice. Gucci, too, gave their sugary hues some edge with a smattering of kooky accessories.

The 80s logo revival
Marc Jacobs drew on the loudest parts of the 80s for his resort collection – crimped hair, neon colours and MTV. Marc’s disco-ready sweatshirts are our between-season hero piece.

Nautical stripes
Red, white and blue stripes gathered at all angles on dresses and blouses, putting a new spin on nautical for designers like Osman and Sonia Rykiel.


Well what did you expect from the season called cruise?
