That’s a wrap, folks. After a whirlwind month of press appointments and presentations, Resort 2016 is finally fini — much to the delight of creative directors everywhere. “Every designer I know hates doing pre-collections,” Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz told Alina Cho earlier this month. “It’s like being a little bit pregnant. You either are or you’re not. It’s not really Spring, it’s not really Fall.”
That may be the case, but the popular in-between season has become a game-changer for brands. Resort not only sees more time on the sales floor than regular season collections, but it’s also preferred by customers looking for new, transitional pieces in the off-season, thereby driving the sell-through performance. At the end of the day, it’s a win-win for everyone.
