Wednesday, September 17th – Gucci
Expect Frida Giannini, Gucci’s creative director, to elaborate on the poison-flower print that wended its way through her 2015 resort collection:
Thursday, September 18th – Prada
Last year, Miuccia Prada went heavy on the embellishment for a colourful SS14 Collection – with sports and luxe elements. However, evident in her 2015 resort preview, it would appear that the Italian luxury fashion designer will opt for a more conservative and sombre approach:
Friday September 19th – Versace
Heading in the opposite direction of Prada, Versace’s 2015 Resort collection featured a mix of lilac, strawberry and lime – previewing an electric “MTV” vibe to the designers upcoming season. We can expect to see more of the same for the SS15 Collection – vibrant silhouettes, a-line skirts and practical evening wear.
Saturday, September 20th – Giorgio Armani
For his 2015 Resort Collection, Giorgio Armani featured the noncolors of the desert, blasted by sand and wind, and touched them with metallic details. The fabrics (double-faced wool, jacquard organza) were as light as a breeze, and the textures were the ripples of a dune. Expect more of the same from his SS15 Collection.
Sunday September 21st – Dolce & Gabbana
Opting not to go with a 2015 Resort Collection, Dolce & Gabbana designers decided to leave us guessing what they have in store for SS15. Last spring’s collection featured a facet of Sicilian culture: The island’s interaction with Greece in the ancient world. However, if the Men’s SS15 Collection is any indication of what’s to come, we can expect a Spanish influence with emphasis on red and florals.
