The sun is out (at least, part of the time) and the resort collections are officially HERE! Cue our resort round-up, featuring the prettiest and most yacht-ready fashions from the catwalk straight from the fashion Gods. Hugo Boss kept things understated, but soft greys were complemented with powerful silhouettes and strong tailoring, whilst Chanel did what Chanel did best and played with colour, texture and remixed it's signature tweed material into a candy coloured child's daydream.
MaxMara seemed to have missed the memo about Resort collections being traditionally intended for the summer months (although recently designers have expanded into winter clothes to cater for the Apsen crowd) and sent models down the runway in what can only be described as 'cossack-ish' fur hats and silky suits in watercolour prints.
Hugo Boss was pared down but powerful, in clean cut lines and pale neutrals that would look perfectly at home in hanging in a minimalist walk in wardrobe and worn on European city-breaks.
Whilst not imbibed with the colourful and whimsical excitement of summer and travel, Boss' resort collection features the kind of staple pieces that could, paired with some strategic opaque black tights, see one well into autumn!
Bottega Veneta took us to the candy shop with sunset tones and soft textures of suede and faux fur in subtly structured outfits that just sighed and said 'I'm off for an pre-dinner aperitif in an impossibly hip street cafe. And I'm going to have my shades on well into the evening and look fabulous.'
