The Resort Collections: The Hot List

Summer is upon us, and with it comes sunshine, sandals and the latest resort shows from our favourite designers. Stella McCartney, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren and more showcased their latest resort 2015 collections, and it’s no secret that we are loving their vision of the glamorous globetrotter. 

So what is it about the resort collections that we adore? Besides the fact that it echoes of a bygone era – when such a collection was not just a nice-to-have, but a necessity for the jet-set – we love the cruise-worthy aesthetic. The chic, relaxed tailoring, the vibrant colour palettes, and luxurious nautical accents. We also simply love the thought of a week away on a hot tropical island – so what could be better than buying yourself a new outfit or two for the (real or imagined) trip?

Kenzo’s collection evoked high-summer Parisian chic. Packed full of fearless geometric patterns and oversized silhouettes, it’s definitely a must-see collection. Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel also kept it bright with a mix of eye-catching prints and stand-out hues. Donna Karan preferred a more simple approach, opting for a muted palette of classic monochrome tones and dusky pink accents.

To commemorate this special moment in the fashion calendar, why not treat yourself to a few of our resort-inspired pieces to look fabulous? Invest in some new wedges for your trip – whether you opt for these Carvelas or this Red Herring pair is up to you. The midi skirt is the perfect piece for this season, so keep it vibrant with this lime green option, or be bold in this geometric number, both by J by Jasper Conran. 

Or perhaps you prefer this beautiful floral dress or 80s-inspired printed cami by Warehouse? Monochrome is still a key trend for this season, so if in doubt, keep it simple with this stylish Coast dress. And don’t forget to finish off any outfit with oversized jewellery.

And it’s not just us who can’t resist the latest pieces. The A-listers are grabbing themselves a slice of high-summer sartorial action too. Models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn are both avid Stella McCartney fans – and with statement prints, bold colours and flattering silhouettes – what’s not to love? The designer told style.com: “they’re inspired by my mum, and by my dad, actually, and by that period of time that was free and easy and not uptight.” We can get behind that.

Summer is all about bright, bold colours, but if you prefer to keep your style simple, take inspiration from Ralph Lauren’s 2015 resort collection. Full of black, white and gold tailored pieces – it offers Mr Lauren’s quintessential pared-back East Coast elegance.
