TRENDS: Our Favorite Cruise 2017 Looks (3)

Hi Guys,

The Cruise 2017 Collections have finally come to an end – sob – and we’ve gathered our favourite looks from the last set of designers to share with you.  There are some real stand-out pieces in this lot that have rivalled my preferred pieces from what we’ve seen so far – they just keep getting better and better!
With Versace going all galactic on us with the futuristic trend, Valentino transforming Bohemia into something significantly more glamorous, and Sonia Rykiel managing to bring Pirate & 60s influences together, you certainly won’t be short of ideas.  Go get inspired!
Marchesa’s flamboyant floral collection took us time travelling through the ages, with a particular lean towards the 20s.  An exciting mix of textures and techniques were used to give life to these pastel coloured ball-gown, embellishing them into true works of Art.  A few rockier pieces in black were thrown in for good measure, balancing out this stunning show with a rougher edge.

Michael Kors
A delightful nautical collection, bringing a fun, youthful fun edge to classic shapes and styles.

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:
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.

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 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.
