The resort shows hold a special place on our editorial calendar as one of our favorite events to cover. The vibe of resort is energetic, unique and exciting. The collections scream vacation time, long weekends and plenty of sunshine. For Resort 2013, we got into vacation mode and leaned back in our chairs to soak in the colors, silhouettes and textures that each designer sent down the runway.
Color-blocking prevailed through numerous collections including Diane von Furstenberg, Prabal Gurung and Rachel Roy. Mixed prints and stripes made a bold statement at Just Cavalli, Marc Jacobs, House of Holland and Lanvin.
Crisp whites, shimmering gold and playful frills were also a focus as designers such as Richard Nicoll, Michael Kors and Salvatore Ferragamo keep the light and airy aura of resort going strong.
From glamour and shine at Alexander McQueen and soft elegance at Marchesa to in your face brights at Ralph Lauren, we’ve highlighted our favorite collections below.
