As if we didn’t get enough fashion candy by two collections each year, many fashion labels are also doing two more collections between the seasons (fashion capitalism at its finest, lol). The collections that are being released now are actually pre-fall 2017, but I thought it’d be a better time to discuss resort 2017. These collections were released this past summer and are a lovely preview of the spring and summer fashion ahead of us. Here are 3 collections for resort 2017!
Valentino Resort 2017 Collection
Valentino’s resort collection for 2017 is in line with the brand’s regular aesthetic. It’s a bit more toned down than usual, and have some touches of minimalistic design. Resort/pre collections are normally more wearable than Ready-To-Wear (the irony), and a better fit for the everyday life. The collection is full of tropical patterns in dense colors, with a color scale embracing nature. There’s a lot of white, green and beige – but also elements of bright pink and red. As resort/pre collections usually do, there’s no distinct focus on a story line and a coherent theme for the clothes, but a focus on the single items. It’s an overall nice resort collection with a bohemian touch and celebration of nature. See full collection here.
Courrèges Resort 2017 Collection
The fashion label Courrèges have always been about futuristic minimalism. The rules apply for this collection too, with an embracement of a sporty space fashion. Some pieces feels a bit Alexander Wang, but if one knows the fashion history, Courrèges has always had an eye for the balance of minimalism, activewear and futurism – which is somewhere where this collection lands. The pieces are straight in their silhouettes, with color-blocking and placement of pockets being the details that counts. It’s actually pretty wearable when it comes to the simplicity of the clothes, but perhaps a collection that’s more suited for the fashion bold at heart. See full collection here.
Proenza Schouler Resort 2017 Collection
Perhaps it’s the idea that spring and summer are active months where one should be out and about constantly, but the resort collections are surely sporty with Proenza Schouler being no exception. The fashion label embedded the sporty aesthetic in a retro vibe with a feminine touch. With color-blocking, clean lines and some 1940s love being mixed all together. The silhouette is rather narrow with a slight defining by the waist. The skirts and culottes are hitting calf-length as in last year. Overall a nice collection, not that wearable perhaps, but eye candy indeed for anyone who’s obsessing with colors and prints. See full collection here.
