The summer is still far away and, until then, many of us are going to spend a holiday in the tropical seas. Fashion trends still follow the Cruise Collections 2016. Here’s the list of what you must have with you.
Cruise Collections, initially created for those ladies going to the tropics during winter, are today a major event for many fashion brands that – between a collection and another – present a foretaste of the future trends. They are, therefore, Pre-Collections, usually presented in May or June, that are often inspired by exotic places and tastes. Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta and Gucci are just some of the brands that have made the Cruise Collection presentation a pivotal event of the year. Let’s check the main trends of the Cruise Collections 2016.
BOHO-CHIC: shabby with class
The return of the Boho – Chic style has been from a while the king of the prêt – à -porter catwalks. Ruffles, pleated skirts and flounced dresses evoke a gipsy-hippie look. Dior proposes pleated dresses that remind the marine colors of the French Riviera; Bottega Veneta goes for minimal outfits and Gucci’s models tread the catwalk among plenty of ruffles. Louis Vuitton also presents bohemian-style gowns. So new life to past trends.
FLOWERS & GEOMETRIC SHAPES: fab 70’s are back
Floral patterns, light fabrics , bright colors. Chanel, from Seoul, offers extravagant, colorful and pop dresses. Louis Vuitton and Gucci present excessive and extravagant clothes. The Cruise Collection 2016 style lady won’t go unnoticed.
GOWNS: day and night
Long dresses are certainly the main characters of Louis Vuitton’s Cruise Collections 2016. Casual, elegant, simple, elaborate, leather, chiffon, red, black, colored: every woman’s personality has her own Vuitton’s gown. Dior and Chanel feature clothes that look like kilometers of fabric. Dior’s ones are more classic while Chanel definitely dares more. So remember: if you are going to the Tropics, fill your luggage with gowns!!
TAILLEUR: revisited icon
Bottega Veneta has a masculine cut: modern and sophisticated. Chanel, however, presents vintage style costumes with a touch of color and glam.
HOT-PANTS: the return
After many years hot-pants come back to the main catwalks. Remember to bring them!!!
Have a good holiday and follow our suggestions to fill the luggage!!
