Resort 2015 - Escada

For the Escada Resort collection, designer Danile Wingate gave the nautical theme of the season an interesting twist with hand-painted paisley patterns in navy blue and white. Besides bold patterns, also bold colors where a theme of the collection. A nice example was the hibiscus-hued cashmere wrap coat paired with cropped turquoise trousers.
Another highlight were he evening gowns in black with delicate chiffon appliqués and organza cutout details or the glamourous golden dress.

Resort 2015 - Fendi

The Resort collection by Fendi combines clear shapes and graphic patterns to create a modern silhouette with interesting contrasts. The looks vary from elegant and playful to sporty and romantic. Highlights are besides the casual combinations the sporty blousons combined with trousers in matching all-over print, the differently draped dresses with pleated details  and the evening wear with flower applications.








Resort 2015 - Max Mara

Presenting Max Mara's new Resort collection on Wednesday, creative director Ian Griffiths talked about early 1980s New York, the moment "when the worlds of art, music, performance, and fashion collided." The eighties mood came across mostly with the accessories such as "dookie chains," Kangol-style hats and running shoes in color-blocked leather.
The clothes themselves were sporty, but made from luxurious, ultra-comfortable fabrics like silk and cashmere. The color palette was held mostly in neutral shades of gray or indigo with some color highlight in pink, warm wine red and a mustard yellow.






Resort 2015 - Just Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli worked for the Just Cavalli Resort collection with a "urban jungle" theme, combining casual looks with sporty elements and high tech materials. As usual vibrant prints and color blocks were used as eye catchers; though fitting to the urban jungle, here the florals had a more graffiti like style. The key pieces of the collection include a graphic biker jacket, sporty blousons and the finale party frock with a sculptural drape in back.





Resort 2015 - MM6 Maison Martin Margiela

MM6 combined for the Resort collection Americana influences with a Japanese perspective. Pop Art-style prints, kimono ribbons and western collars were some playful details in an collection based on simplicity with a slightly oversized silhouette. Interesting were also the drapings of the asymmetrical dresses.
