Here are highlights from the latest round of Resort/Cruise 2015 collections, with looks from Ralph Lauren, Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra and 3.1 Phillip Lim.
A collection all about “modern glamour, an easy sophistication and feminine refinement” according to Ralph Lauren. The Resort 2015 pieces feature contrast pan collars on dresses and wide lapels on coats and tailoring.
Wang served up plenty of utility pockets, grungy tie-died leather and PVC, knee-high lace-up sneaker boots and fun tailored jumpsuits.
Prints, pleats and pants were the key elements in Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough’s Resort 2015 collection, which also featured one of the brand’s new swimwear pieces.
Marc Jacobs unveiled a series of cute party dresses and pantsuits for Resort 2015 featuring sequins, velvet, lace and an abstract floral print.
Named “Querelle” after the Rainer Werner Fassbinder film, the 2014 CFDA winner’s collection riffed on maritime collars with a series of stunning white and black dresses.
