TRENDS: Our Favorite Cruise 2017 Looks

Hey Guys,

Despite it seeming just yesterday that we were swooning over the shows at Paris Fashion Week, the Cruise 2017 collections have sailed round at top speed and are now upon us.  While we’re sad to see the back of those glorious pink Chanel suits, we’re not exactly complaining.  With a whole new set of looks to feast our eyes on, we’ve picked our best bits from the Designers who we’ve seen so far.  Let’s put it this way, you won’t be disappointed:

Chanel

Just when you thought they’d run out of ideas, Chanel has managed to reinvent itself once more. Alternative takes on classic looks, including black and embellished grey taffetas and chiffons led the first part of the show, while bright, textured, metallic tailored garments brought up the rear.

Gucci

Gucci’s collection was an explosion of colour, texture and pattern from start to finish, with eye-catching pieces, and a distinctive, retro vibe.

Red Valentino

Bringing a touch of softness to proceedings was Red Valentino, with muted tones, distressed and delicate fabrics and soft silhouettes.

Dior

Dior presented a fierce collection with a strong, masculine/feminine attitude. Over-sized, structured shoulder padded sleeves were mixed with flimsier fabrics, striking the perfect balance between the two trends.

Fendi

Fendi played with print in a fun, feminine way with influences from various origins.  Full, spanish skirts were mixed with Hawaiian prints resulting in a collection of regal, Mediterranean looks.

Christopher Kane

Also utilising bold print in his collection, Kane played with a geometric check print in a variety of ways.  Sequins and colour-clashing were mixed with duller tones to create an interesting modern take on some classic vintage styles.

Rochas

Geometric prints and structured shapes lead the way at the Rochas show.  These bold, masculine pieces contrasted the collection’s alter-ego of floral fabrics, lace, and joyful colours.

Roberto Cavalli

Cavalli’s collection was a step back in time.  Psychedelic prints, embroidered jean and crochet made this a creative but coherent 70s inspired collection.

Oscar De La Renta

Renta’s show was the expectedly elegant, feminine collection of floaty florals and intricate embroidery that the designer is renowned for.  A few pieces leant towards the bohemian trend, while others adopted a vintage look from a different era, including a feathered 20s number.

Missoni packed in as many patterns as possible, using both geometrical and asymmetrical prints.  Floaty, un-structured pieces were featured alongside more tailored, futuristic looks in stiff, metallic fabrics.  A colourful collection with plenty of attitude.
