Ready, Set, Resort!

The latest resort swimwear is exploring new depths with rich surface effects and sea-inspired motifs.

It never stops – we just covered the swim-heavy Brazil and Sydney fashion weeks; and with the wave of black, navy, white and tweed on the Chanel runways, Cruise/Resort 2014 season is officially here. Collections, so far, have been sprinkled with a few bits of swimwear; but the season has just begun, and we still have Miami Fashion Week and a jam-packed trade show slate on the way.

Some of the noteworthy: Raf Simons continued to explore the mythology of the sea in pearlescent surfaces and slithery fabrics at Dior. Swirling marbled motifs formed a new type of underwater camouflage at Bottega Veneta. All the Lagerfeld signatures were present and accounted for at Chanel, but the big story was the spongy cloquéd knits and the languid silk robes. Finally, Giorgio Armani also conjured the mysterious textures of the ocean with iridescent beading and a collage of odd, colorful shapes that recalled the Memphis Group.
