Our trend experts have analyzed and identified the key looks that will impact on both directional and commercial fashion ranges and will continue to develop over the coming summer season.
This week, blog readers get an exclusive insight into three essential SS17 Resort trends. Modernist Utility reenergizes the long running utility trend with a crisper, cleaner aesthetic. An emphasis on lightness is evident in The Petal Effect as floaty layering lends a weightless quality to feminine forms. Viva Cuba brings a vibrancy and exoticism to summer’s print stories with lush tropical hues and a touch of fiesta fun.
Utility themes are refreshed for SS17 with a modernist appeal. Loosely structured silhouettes in a palette of white, cream and tan lend new lightness to functional boiler suits, trench cuts and tunics with crisp cottons, starched collars and functional fastenings enhancing the clean lined feel.

The Petal Effect
Gentle ruffles and subtle frills create layered effects that express an ultra light petal-like quality. Lightweight layers, softly gathered balloon sleeves and layers, tiered frill trims come in sheer fabrications, delicate pastel hues or pearly metallics for an ethereal aesthetic.

SS17 Resort florals have a joyful South American vibe with exotic blooms and vacation prints in lush jewel tones. All-over print looks and oversized motifs add impact to high summer dresses and casual co-ords. Ruffle hems and corsage trims reference the exotic vibrancy of Cuba’s isle.
