7 of the most gorgeous 2019 Resort collections

Eeveryone deserves a break from routine and monotony. For the stylish, this involves a carefully curated wardrobe of chic essentials perfect for all lifestyles. While some designers reflect on the past, others look to the present for their 2019 Resort (also known as Cruise) offerings.

Here’s a look at some of the standout collections.


Do The Coco

One word – berets. The accessory defined the Chanel collection, making it cooler without losing a classic feel. As it is, the looks paint a picture of what someone like Coco Chanel would have herself worn to go on a holiday.

Straight From The 90s

Prada embraced the 1990s with designs that put “ugly prints” back into the limelight. Silhouettes were kept clean though, with trim jackets, neat skirts and low-slung pants adding structure.

Riding High

Dior took to the rodeo for the presentation of its Resort range. Models walked a makeshift runway among horseback riders, showing off extravagant skirts, arched jackets and – because it’s a rodeo – rubber boots.

Taking It Easy

The Californian city Palm Spring inspired the Carolina Herrera collection. Soft colours and bright designs were the focus – or in creative director Wes Gordon’s own words: “It’s a little quirky and glamorous at the same time.”

Statement Mix

Fendi conquered the season with a beautiful blend of energised eclecticism and sharp tailoring. From double-breasted jackets to backpacks and cowboy boots, the pieces came together to offer modern women a sense of freedom.

Bring On The Attitude

Louis Vuitton’s Resort designs brought some major attitude to the runway. Sequined jackets and feathered tops were matched with short shorts and mini skirts, together with thigh-high leather boots featuring chunky soles.

Classic Charm

It is the opulence of texture and print that defines Bottega Veneta’s designs for the season. The sheen of leather, plush feel of wool and sobriety of muted tweed – they offered an appeal that seems almost timeless.

Fashion shake-up: 4 key designer appointments of 2018 so far

Fashion shake-up: 4 key designer appointments of 2018 so far

It is not only trends that are ever-changing. The appointment of designers – and correspondingly, the vision they offer – often lead to a switch of a fashion house’s aesthetic.

Taking the helm, they bring with them a personal perspective. It is also this new vibe that courts additional followers and offers a fresh identity to fashion labels.

Here’s a look at four well-known designers who made headlines for moving “houses” this year.

Kim Jones

As a designer, Kim Jones has had the experience of working with some of the most well-known fashion labels. These include the likes of Dunhill, Mulberry, Alexander McQueen and more.

But it is his appointment as artistic director of Dior Homme this year that took everyone by surprise. Partly because the man he replaced never gave any indication of wanting to move on.

Also, Jones, 38, was previously rumoured to have been courted by Versace. Many in the fashion industry saw him as a potential successor to Christopher Bailey at Burberry as well.

A graduate of Central Saint Martins in London, he is known for having a sporty, streetwise aesthetic. His love for the edgy and the cool falls in place perfectly with today’s youth-driven trends.

British-born Jones’ first runway show for Dior Homme last month was a hit. His designs have been praised for being a clever mix of high-end fashion with casually chic streetwear styles.

Virgil Abloh

One thing to note about Virgil Abloh is that he does not play by the rules. The American designer prides himself for his self-taught background in fashion and is not afraid of being an outsider in the industry.

Yet, the 37-year-old secured the plum job of replacing Kim Jones as Louis Vuitton’s artistic director of menswear. He has taken to the ground running too, with a star-studded debut runway for the label.

Last month’s show drew celebrities like Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, Rita Ora, Jordyn Woods, Chadwick Boseman and Alexander Skarsgard. His designs paid tribute to the “streets” with sneakers being a mainstay.

Abloh first came to prominence as rapper Kanye West’s creative director. From there on, he has made a name for himself by founding his own luxury streetwear label Off-White.

Described by Vogue magazine as “one of fashion’s consummate purveyors of cool and hype”, Abloh has said that he aims to modernise fashion – and the storied houses that are seen as bastions of the industry.

Riccardo Tisci

Having replaced Christopher Bailey as the new creative officer, Riccardo Tisci is expected to bring his vision of subversive and contemporary elegance to British fashion house Burberry.

The 43-year old Italian designer is long celebrated for being a visionary. His creations are regarded as extremely relevant, which is a quality much sought after in the fast changing fashion world.

Tisci’s appointment at Burberry comes after more than a decade as creative director at Givenchy, where he resurrected the couture house with his expertise of elevating casual wear to high-fashion status.

Some of his past iconic designs for Givenchy include Beyonce’s very naked dress worn at the 2015 Met Gala, as well as Kim Kardashian’s sophisticated wedding gown in 2014.

While his first Burberry show is only slated for September, anticipation is steadily growing. The recent announcement of a Burberry partnership between Riccardo Tisci with British designer Vivienne Westwood has already set the fashion world abuzz.

Hedi Slimane

Hedi Slimane’s matchup with Celine is as unconventional as it gets. The French designer’s aesthetic contrasts greatly with what the fashion house has adhered to in the past.

While Slimane, 50, has a penchant for shrunken tops and skinny pants, plus elements of rock ‘n’ roll and grunge, Celine is known for its sophisticated and chic wardrobe essentials.

Yet Slimane was successful at reinventing Yves Saint Laurent. As the creative director between 2012 and 2016, he rechristened it Saint Laurent and pushed forward a more culture-driven vibe for the label.

Big things are expected from Slimane come his debut show in September. It will be interesting to see what changes he makes under his helm and the new direction he will be taking the brand to.

As for fans of Slimane? It has been reported that he will be introducing a ready-to-wear men’s collection for the first time in the label’s history. Now, that’s something to get excited about.
