Resort season, or Cruise or even Pre-Fall as it sometimes known is May-July in the fashion calendar. Crossing and classing with menswear, and seemingly never ending.

This is the season that stays in the store the longest, is understated, wearable and a taste of what is coming next for the houses. In essence these are the collections that represent the best the houses have to offer.

Keep reading to see the highlights of Resort Season.

Chanel Cruise ’20

We loved the travel vibe of this Cruise collection, easy separates breezed down the runway. The house transformed the Grand Palais into an international train station, with models sauntering to their connection.

This is the first collection Virginie Viard has designed alone for the house of Chanel. Since the death of Lagerfeld in February, questions have circulated about the fate of the house. With this collection, Viard assured the fashion press that the legacy of Chanel will continue.

Gucci Cruise ’20

Set in Rome, Alessandro Michele brought another vibrant cruise collection into the legacy of Gucci. With blazers emblazoned with the date of the Berlin wall falling, a capsule collection with Disney, and all the usual prints and motifs of Gucci.

This cruise collection was like a best of, meets upcoming collection, a little confusing, but perfectly Gucci!

Louis Vuitton Cruise ’20

Nicholas Ghesquiere has really settled into his role at Louis Vuitton. In the last 5 years he has transformed and redirected the house in a way that feels truly modern. With this cruise collection, we were given another taste of the future; bags with digital displays, sci-fi inspired shapes, and delicate details.

Another strong collection, that gives us a taste of what the next season for Loius Vuitton will be like.

Moschino Resort ’20

A horror movie inspired campy resort collection was on the menu at Moschino. Shown on the Desperate Housewives Universal set in LA. We got trick or treat vibes, just the right side of costumey, this was fun and full of references we loved.

Versace Pre-Fall ’19

Still on a huge from their anniversary vintage revival of the last 6 seasons, Versace remixed the best bits of past collections. Considering that the resort wear collections stay in the stores the longest this is a savvy move from the design team at Versace.

This will go down really well with the brand’s fans.

Dior Cruise ’20

Maria Grazia Chiuri took us to Marrakesh for the Dior Cruise collection. This mooreish collection gave us visual reminders of the feeling of summer sun on your skin, rich wafts of summer air and of course holidays.

Long dresses, and delicate separates were the flavours of the collection. We loved the melange of prints in rich warm colours.

Balenciaga Pre-Fall ’19

Taking all the classics from the Balenciaga oeuvre, Gvasalia created an incredibly wearable and desirable collection. Models listened to headphones and talked on phones on the runway, making the collection feel like it could slot right into our lives.

Max Mara Resort ’20

Doing what the brand does best, we adored the soft easy suiting in head to toe colours. Max Mara is always effortless and easy, and this collection was no different.

Chloé Resort ’20

Heading to china, Shanghai to be precise. Chloé joined other brands in showing a resort collection entirely made up of clothes we can all wear and love. This was a warm and rich collection, with easy separates we need right now.
