Céline Resort 2016 Collection

Céline’s Resort 2016 collection was first shown back in July, but images of the collection are only now being released to the public for the first time today. Phoebe Philo opened the collection with a striped, molded jacket with her signature rogue piece of hanging fabric, then there was the way she played with proportions, with prints and cutouts. Each look is a new, almost overwhelming experience.

Miu Miu Resort 2016

It wasn’t just a fashion show. Her Miu Miu club event on Saturday night in Paris included a fragrance launch, an extended cocktail hour, her resort 2016 collection presentation and a sprawling party featuring top-flight tech-house talent headlined by Seth Troxler, Cassy and Craig Richards. Oh, and those legendary party animals, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, too.

“The clothes are a reflection of the party,” Prada told WWD, sipping Champagne with stylist Nicoletta Santoro on one of the white banquettes tucked under the raised runway.

Some shapes were familiar to Miu Miu – mannish coats, boxy blousons and circle skirts – but gussied up in freewheeling, borderline garish ways: the English-check outerwear embellished with glossy swirls of leather on the shoulders and sleeves, giving them a country twang; those big skirts hole-punched in metallic leather, subverting their primness.

Newer were thigh-skimming shift dresses and pinafores bearing loud photo prints and dangling geometric discs along the hem. They had the same punk spirit of Prada’s signature resort collection, and a slapdash approach to decoration. Competing for the eye’s attention were warning stripes, big metal grommets and silk patterned with darting swallows. Mixed in were cropped polos and shirts in bold referee stripes.

Mary Katrantzou Resort 2016

Mary Katrantzou wanted her resort 2016 collection to be a bit effortless. The designs still stood out for Katrantzou’s striking way with color and print, but the shapes had a feminine fluidity. Among them were mini- and maxidresses in deep pink or bright white, their blocks of color sliced with sections of sun-ray pleats in rainbow stripes, which accordioned out as the garments moved.

Marni Resort 2016

Consuelo Castiglioni likes the fluid silhouettes it appears, along with the optical illusions and the vivid prints. The 70s vibe is still permeating throughout the fashion world of late. The color schemes and the cuts, the patterning and the styles all wrap up together well enough, while the Marni collection utilizes the good that brings about and shows off collections which would be hard to emulate by another. Some of the loveliest pieces include geometric honeycombs in browns and yellows, along with oversized wallpaper worthy floral prints in psychedelic colors that included the clashing of acid blue with lovely pinks and burgundy.

The best Resort 2016 looks that will inspire your outfit

Within the Resort 2016 collections we’ve seen designers present their ranges from late may to July.It’s the season with the longest shelf-life on the sales floor. They sit on the sales floor the longest—usually five months and are often more wearable. From cropped kick-flares to floor-grazing super-wide legs, it’s clear designers are suffering from severe slim-cut fatigue. The 1970s are also making their way into Resort wear, with lots of easy wrap dresses, denim bell-bottoms, chevron prints, and floral chiffon. While we’ll have to wait months to shop the Resort 2016 deliveries, we don’t have to wait another minute to steal the styling inspiration on display.
Stella McCartney’s Resort 2016 collection was a dreamy affair. This season it’s all about life and color and flowers. There’s a joy to it.  Raf Simons showed his feminine and playful designs at the Bubble Palace in France for Christian Dior, while Marc Jacobs took his embellished pieces to the streets of New York City.
Jeremy Scott built his seasonal punchline for Moschino around a cornucopia of shameless retail clichés.

Emilio Pucci Resort 2016

Massimo Giorgetti marked his debut as creative director of Emilio Pucci with a capsule collection inaugurating a new era for the Florentine fashion label. Giorgetti revamped the Emilio Pucci logo, which appeared embroidered on skirts and applied on bags and shoes as well as laser-cut on a coated nylon and cotton coat. Even as he infused the lineup with his signature sense of lightness, a certain cool factor and an overall effortless attitude, Giorgetti demonstrated he’s able to introduce exquisite details and sophisticated elements that strongly differentiate his first effort for Pucci from his MSGM collection.


Valentino Resort 2016

Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired by Diana Vreeland’s “The eye has to travel” motto to design their beautiful and eclectic resort collection, which embraced the concept of multiculturalism. These divergent inspirations were blended together in a sophisticated lineup where simple silhouettes were enriched by exquisite decorations and opulent textures — many in a garden motif, although Chiuri and Piccioli also introduced more geometric motifs, such as the Navajo-inspired embroideries of a tulle gown trimmed with beaded fringe. More delicate and feminine floral patterns were used on a crepe de chine shirt and pajama pants worn with a luxurious intarsia mink fur coat. Everything was infused with an eccentric, hyper-decorative touch, which reached its peak on a sumptuous tulle and chiffon maxidress with an abundance of embroideries, fabric intarsia detailing and beads.


Moschino Resort 2016

As it’s the season with the longest shelf-life on the sales floor, it’s the collection that’s meant to sell. Jeremy Scott built his seasonal punchline for Moschino around a cornucopia of shameless retail clichés. They included a dress that looked like a sales tag; a black jacket trimmed with trompe l’oeil receipts, complete with store addresses and transactions in the four figures; and prints that paid homage to the big-house commodities: fragrances.

The clothes were a bold, silly treat for eyes weary of racks of nice but commercial merch. And ironically enough, most of the styles were done in understandable silhouettes, rendering them salable for the Moschino customer.
