Shorts were the main highlight from the Prada show. They were paired with and zipped necked tops and blazers in colours that clashed. Over-the-shoulder handbags were carried by the models who walked with confident purpose.

Familiar sports looks came out with models wearing loose fitting shirts and shorts. Many outfits mismatched with baseball sweaters and golf socks. A very casual relaxed show that was dubbed the ‘Marni Olympics’.

Cruise & Resort Shows – 2019

I absolutely love the Cruise and Resort shows and this year they have not disappointed. Whether its the locations, the sets or the clothes, they all make these shows very special and enjoyable to watch. Here is my selection of some of these wonderful shows.

The Chanel show being the most spectacular and included a cruise ship as part of the set, Karl Lagerfeld really does know how to put on a show. The models came down the runway in tweed dresses, sailor trousers, short dresses, cropped jackets, and embellished berets.

Dior’s show was another extravaganza, with an equestrian theme in Mexico. Models wore fitted jackets, colourful cotton dresses and pristine clean white shirts paired with tiered ruffles skirts, it was a visual delight.

Louis Vuitton was influenced by the 70s and 80s, there were feathered tops to acid washed denims and intricate detailed embroidery. Assessories featured heavily from Louis Vuitton bags, thigh high boots and trainers.

Prada had a 90s feel to their collection in their New York City show. They presented a range of low waisted mini skirts and trousers. Included also were polos, backpacks and chunky loafers. Bright and neon colours made the collection stand out and trousers and skirts were paired with sweaters and jackets.

Philipp Plein’s collection was glam-rock sexy, inspired by the 70s and 80s. There was glitter, sequins and animal prints throughout. Along with pieces with palm-tree prints on bomber jackets, denim trousers and tops.
