It's not easy to top Dior, Chanel or Louis Vuitton, all of whom staged elaborate Resort 2015 productions, but here's a look at some of the latest designers to show their collections, all of which were noticeably sportswear inspired.
Biker gloves, jogging pants, sneakers – it was definitely a sporty collection this season at Max Mara. Silhouettes were on the slouchy side, even when it came to suiting, and colors were dark, with most of the collection done in gray and rusty shades of red, yellow and green.
Christopher Bailey never ceases to amaze with his ability to give the classic trench a brilliant makeover. This season it came with oversized buttons or ombré colorways. Casual high-waist skirts and knitwear were also prominently featured in the relatively casual collection, which according to WWD, was inspired by the graphic covers of poetry and fiction works from the early 20th century.
Texture, sportswear and monochrome colorways were the key takeaways from this season’s DKNY collection. A big chunk of the collection was shown head to toe in the same color, but visual interest was kept high with fringe, feather and other textural embellishments. When colors were mixed, it tended to be black and white and cuts were kept loose for an overall casual feel.
If you ever wanted to go jogging in Missoni, looks like you will soon have the chance. In addition to jogging pants, there were other casual trousers, including palazzo pants, all of which were done in Missoni’s signature graphic and colorful prints. Eveningwear, however, also included monochrome pieces, most of which came minimally embellished which, coupled with their loose maxi silhouettes, made them versatile finds.
