The Resort 2017 shows are revealing a really exciting, upbeat, bold and innovative intro to the main Spring collections which will show in September. I think it’s going to be a stellar season.
We’ll be sharing a few of our favourite resort shows, kicking off with Valentino. This collection is vast, especially by the usually compact standards of inter-season collections. It started off with the kind of quirky cute 50’s sweetness we have come to love as the Valentino Red label signature and then morphs into detailing and pattern that felt far more an extension of Valentino’s recent African inspired direction. Kind of mixed up, but utterly fabulous never the less.
The scale of placements, the slightly ‘off’ colour combinations, the mixture of utility with delicacy, the playful vibe. All of these are wonderfully spirit-lifting and rather enchanting. Oh, and plenty of Valentino’s signature red too.
