TRENDS: Our Favorite Cruise 2017 Looks (3)

Hi Guys,

The Cruise 2017 Collections have finally come to an end – sob – and we’ve gathered our favourite looks from the last set of designers to share with you.  There are some real stand-out pieces in this lot that have rivalled my preferred pieces from what we’ve seen so far – they just keep getting better and better!

With Versace going all galactic on us with the futuristic trend, Valentino transforming Bohemia into something significantly more glamorous, and Sonia Rykiel managing to bring Pirate & 60s influences together, you certainly won’t be short of ideas.  Go get inspired!

Marchesa

Marchesa’s flamboyant floral collection took us time travelling through the ages, with a particular lean towards the 20s.  An exciting mix of textures and techniques were used to give life to these pastel coloured ball-gown, embellishing them into true works of Art.  A few rockier pieces in black were thrown in for good measure, balancing out this stunning show with a rougher edge.

Michael Kors

A delightful nautical collection, bringing a fun, youthful fun edge to classic shapes and styles.

Moschino

Moschino brought us it’s usual carnival of colour.  Some incredibly creative pieces, with neons, crochet and an emphasis on the 70s and 80s eras.

Mugler

Minimalist elegance with body hugging shapes and unsymmetrical cut-out elements made this a fluid and modern collection.

No. 21

A coherent and well-balanced collection.  Two main themes of stripes and nudes ran throughout, with over-sized black pieces adding edge and attitude to this Summery show.

Prabal Gurung

Layered hems, a dark palette and soft silhouettes balanced with structure resulted in a sexy, masculine/feminine Collection.

Rosie Assoulin

Incredible, graceful silhouettes added elegance to this tribal, bohemian collection.  Relaxed tailoring, choppy shapes and unsymmetrical ruffling added an essence of minimalism to floor-length gowns and a dusty palette kept things subdued.

Sonia Rykiel

A smart Collection, with an eclectic mix of influences. Sharp feminine 60s tailoring was incorporated with masculine Pirate-bohemian detailing in the leather belts, jackets and headscarfs.

Thom Browne

A punchy, Preppy collection created by colour blocking and simple, a-line shapes.  Asian-fashion inspired accessories, with quirky detailing and fun ‘puppy’ bags brought a playful side to this collegiate-cool collection.

Tory Burch

Tory Burch presented a fun and flirty feminine collection full of floral patterns, frills and textures.  Minimal bohemian influences were incorporated and colours were joyful but muted, completing these sophisticated looks.

Valentino

Valentino brought us an ethnic take on its classic romance.  A multitude of textures and fabrics were utilised, including fringing details, Hawaiian prints and fur.  Interesting combinations of influences from across the globe and ages came together harmoniously to make this a unique, stand-out Collection.

Versace

Versace’s sexy vibe took a trip to the future in this Cruise 2017 Collection.  Muted colours were brought to life with neon detailing, leather was skin-tight and silhouettes sharp.
