Resort 2015

Resort 2015

  • Who’s the Designer:  Tomas Maier for Bottega Veneta; Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel; Yigal Azrouël for Cut25; Christian Dior for Dior.
  • What’s the inspiration:  Resort wear is one of the most misunderstood clothing references.  The term is actually a reference to clothing that you may wear on vacation.  The item really can be worn anytime but often the styles are brightly colored, light weight, have relaxed styling, and are easy to travel with.  The name refers to almost anything that may fit into that category.  Shirts, pants, shoes, hats, bags, swimsuits, swim cover ups are just a few of the items that can be considered resort wear.  It is a catch phrase for casual relaxed style and can be found both ladies and men’s apparel.  It can also be known as cruise wear but is essentially the same category of clothing.  Resort wear is also a term used to a fashion season by luxury designers.  Often times stores will start to carry this type of sportswear in November.  The thought process is that many will travel to warm climates over the holidays and need more lightweight clothing options.  You certainly won’t need gloves while vacationing in Belize!
  • Why it’s relevant:  Resort is a sneak peek into what we can expect to see on the Spring/Summer for the upcoming season’s runways.  While we will still see glimpses of a Fall/Winter influence we get a preview to what trends we should plan to carry into the new year.  For example, Chanel served up in a major way the push for the relevance of wearing a dress with pants.  Cut25 reminds us that the sneaker is still relevant and is not the short lived micro-trend that everyone anticipated it would be- and on the same note don’t put away crop tops just yet as well!  For Dior the idea of a structured and clean lines coupled with a refreshing palette of white gives new meaning to “Winter Whites” that will transition nicely to Spring’s sunny disposition.
  • Where to wear it:  Naturally wear these pieces on vacation but don’t hesitate to stock up on these trends now and into Fall/Winter because they will prove to be a smart investment when Spring/Summer 2015 rolls around!
