PRETTY IN PINK
The color of 2020 according to the resort collections: pink. Monochrome pink outfits and charmingly feminine, frilly pink dresses graced runways from Prada to See by Chloé. The brighter and bolder the better, according to these designers. In 2020, expect to see this spring time favorite break into winter and fall wardrobes, as pink jackets, scarves and sweaters were a common feature throughout this season’s resort presentations.
Last year, the trend of micro purses hit the runways hard. This year, designers are taking back the tote. Several resort collections featured larger handbags that seemed to linger somewhere between a normal purse and a duffle bag. These were featured prominently in shows for designers know for their handbags, like Chanel and Michael Kors. No more struggling to hold all of your stuff in 2020, the big bag has returned.
BOHO IS BACK
We’ve entered into one of the recurring and coveted times in fashion history: when boho comes back. Long, bohemian dresses, wide fabric headbands and haphazardly layered outfits graced several runways during this resort season. Dior most notably strayed from their typically tailored pieces to present a North African-inspired collection full of flowing, beaded garments. Some other designers that embraced this trend were Prada, Gucci and The Great.
THE BIGGER THE BETTER
The 2020 resort collections steered away from minimalism. Instead, large-scale, bold prints reigned supreme across several designers. Graphic and geometric fabrics were crafted into simple silhouettes making one thing clear: prints are meant to shine this season. Large block patterns with two-toned color schemes were a common theme with brands like Claudia Li, Johanna Ortiz, Christian Sirano and Temperley London.
MAKE IT POP
Many designers decided to make their 2020 resort pieces more visually intriguing by presenting a small, graphic pop of color in an otherwise neutral ensemble. While this is usually done through the use of accessories, the 2020 resort collections showed brands using these small introductions of color in an almost minimized color-blocking technique. This added an additional element of visual interest to otherwise generic pieces.
