Highlights from the Resort 2018 Catwalks

The Resort 2018 season kicked off in early May and will continue throughout the summer. Some of the most talked about show highlights so far include; Christian Dior’s collection inspired by Californian nature – presented against the backdrop of the Santa Monica Mountains, Louis Vuitton’s homage to Japan, set within the stunning Miho Museum in Kyoto and Gucci’s historically-rich nod to today’s copycat culture at the Palatine Gallery of Palazzo Pitti in Florence.

Presenting a variety of earth inspired themes, neutral colour palettes dominate, featuring bold, contrasting patterns and architecturally influenced silhouettes. Relaxed styles are grounded in simplicity both in terms of colour and construction with designers drawing inspiration from ancient decadence and culturally-rich aesthetics. Read on for further insight into our top influences and thematic directions emerging from the Resort collections.

Molten Metals – Gucci

Alessandro Michele plays with Athenian and Roman styles combined with the decadence associated with the Renaissance period. Gilded metallics evoke the extravagance of ancient Classicism through fluid, feminine forms.


Modernist Ripple – Tibi

Inspired by artist Jonathan Gardner, Tibi use colour and fabrication to transform ‘weird’ and unexpected colours into understated, undulating designs. With a subtle link to sportswear, the collection remains minimalistic and comfortable through beautifully articulated aesthetics.


Earthen Marbling – Christian Dior

Maria Grazia Chiuri draws inspiration from the South West for the Dior Resort show, with a focus on natural elements. Earthen tones in hazy marbled patterns complement relaxed shapes and natural aesthetics.


Sheer Dimension –Prada

Miuccia Prada presents an ethereal collection of sheer feminine silhouettes in a palette of delicate pastels. Contradictory sports utility accessories and the interspersing of solid black silhouettes provide intriguing contrasts.


Organic Constructivist – Chanel

 Karl Lagerfeld follows a similar earthen source of inspiration for the Chanel 2018 Resort show. Neutral-toned structured styles are defined by organic textures, influenced by Ancient Grecian architecture.


Architectural Essentials – Dion Lee

Simple structure and relaxed styling defines Dion Lee’s 2018 Resort collection. Asymmetrical cuts and construction characterise Lee’s simplistic designs inspired by Australian essentials.

PairElevated Athleisure – Valentino

Valentino reconnects with an everyday aesthetic through an athleisure-fuelled Resort show. Technical jerseys and hammered silks create enticing track dresses, skirts and suits as visible stitching and heavy panelling portray an intricately recon aesthetic.
