It’s that time of the year again! Resort 2017 is officially underway and collections from our favorite designers are hitting Vogue Runway faster than the stampede of consumers who waited in line for Balmain for H&M. We’ve been keeping track of all the collections as they get released and we have officially narrowed down our favorites from this season. So who made into our top? Let’s find out!
Bally is giving us a strong blend of 60s and 70s and we love it. Fashion today is all about nostalgia. Fashion bloggers are capitalizing on the fads of the past and Bally’s Resort 2017 collection is speaking to all those young fashionistas. Design director Pablo Coppola utilizes bright colors and geometric patterns and his silk kimono, emerald trench, and quilted ski jacket are pieces that we need to have in our closet ASAP. If we were at a ski resort rocking this collection, the room would definitely do a double take!
6) Cushnie et Ochs
Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, the two creative forces behind Cushnie et Ochs, have once again put together a killer collection that represents everything the brands stands for. These female designers understand the woman’s body and their pieces convey an appreciation and adoration for femininity and pure sensuality. They give business attire an edge and they turn average cocktail dresses into cutout creations that scream sexy. This collection is all about the separates: palazzo pants, high wasted flares, halter-tops, as well as their signature pencil dresses.
5) Sally LaPointe
If we could live in Sally LaPointe sweaters we would. Kendall Jenner frequently sports this designer and we totally know why. Sally does outerwear like no else and her Resort 2017 collections gave us everything we wanted. Her signature pastel colors and rich creams were in full effect and her use of shimmering taupe and sequin applique was just perfect. Sally LaPointe makes us crave winter just so we can sport one of her lush coats. However, with this collection, Ms. LaPointe transcends seasons by mixing heavy items with light pieces like her crotched crop top. This Resort 2017 collection is one must have item after the next and we wouldn’t expect anything less.
4) Pringle of Scotland
Although this collection does not scream resort, there are so many elements of this look book that we can’t help but love. There are few designers that can transport us to a time and place and make us feel immersed in way of life. Fran Stringer, creative director of Pringle of Scotland, excels at just that. If this collection could be summed up in one word, it’s knitwear; except this knitwear is next level. Stringer brings athleisure into a whole new stratosphere, taking old school prep, we’re talking about those collegiate stripes, and making them modern and chic. This look book is a mix of figure hugging dresses, lush cardigans and whimsical trousers. If you were expecting drab, you are in for a surprise!
Whenever a new season begins, we’re always on the lookout for Mugler. Thierry Mugler’s iconic brand has had a longevity that is unprecedented and its popularity to this day is in part due to the youthfulness of the designs. Mugler’s Resort 2017 collection is everything we hoped for: dynamic dresses, unique cutouts, unusual lines, and unconventional separates. David Coma, creative director at large, has brought back the bodycon in a big way. What makes this collection different from what we’ve seen in the past is this melding of vibrant colors with their signature black and white patterns. We can’t wait to see which young celebrities rock pieces from this collection!
2) Helmut Lang
The 90s Gods came down and blessed this collection and we could not be more thankful. Helmut Lang’s Resort 2017 collection breathes life into our inner 90’s kid and makes minimalism so beyond chic we STILL have no words. Tailored jackets, delicate knits, silk trousers, sheepskin parkas, these pieces are the definition of elegance and refinement yet I could see any adolescent or twenty something wearing this collection. Each piece is cool and effortless without trying and the creative team at Helmut Lang embeds nostalgia into every design. So will just be waiting until we can maybe/possibly/but most likely never afford a piece from this collection.
Here at LCNY, Resort 2017 was all about Delpozo! From the first piece to the last piece, we were left awestruck and frankly, mind blown. Sometimes too much color can be a turn off, but not this collection, color was everywhere and we couldn’t get enough! Creative director Josep Font sought inspiration from sculptor Anthony Caro when putting together the dynamic and vibrant pieces found in the look book. This collection is all about the use of prints as well as the fabulous hombre affect that occurs with each passing outfit. We first see a staggering blue that is melded with stars, then we move into a neon yellow, and ultimately conclude with a mix of cream and light coral. We would be remiss to not comment on all the architectural elements of this collection. The colors caught our attention, but its’ the Avant-garde bodices and subtle insets that will make us remember Delpozo Resort 2017 for years to come.
Yours in Style,
Lauren Cecchi New York Team
