Industry insider’s share their thoughts.
The monochrome trend continues to be strong as designers offer sharp and timeless silhouettes, while artful florals and cool surf elements as seen at Mother of Pearl and Preen (pictured) look fresh and perfect for the new season.
I love the simplicity of blues and white seen in the resort collections (Kenzo resort, pictured).
For fabrics, it will be natural cotton, linen and silk voiles for airy print dresses. Above all, the season is about layering for both men and women.
Small ankle boots which are a cross between biker and cowboy style will be popular. Patterned trousers, including leggings, will also be strong. Prominent colours will be olive, forest green and cream (Jason Wu Resort, pictured).
There is a strong emergence of Middle Eastern influences (Marni resort, pictured); boho style but with more luxurious fabrics and richer embroidery. Colours will be sapphire, purple, turquoise and gold. There is also a youth trend with a 1970s influence.
