Yes, we understand that this summer is unlike any other. Most of us probably had plans to live our best lives knee deep in clear crisp water in the Mediterranean Sea, indulging in savory dishes that make our taste buds sing, or just embracing the careless and free energy that comes with the season. However, your summer probably didn’t start-off like that, while many of us are still secluded from the world – BUT that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t indulge in the spirit that summer brings to the world. Especially, if you’re at home during the heat of the season.Over the past few weeks, some of the worlds most watched brands have showcased their resort 2021 collection to many who have been secluded for months. Runway shows still remain under question – if they’ll hold precedent in the fashion system. Additionally, we have seen a shift in how fashion is consumed, and many brands are restructuring their creativity to the desires of their customers during this time.
Usually in resort season, luxe beachwear and lightweight attire for that lavish “Rendez Vous” or classic dresses perfect for a summertime bash in accentuate silhouettes, are desired by many. Now, while these ideas are still wanted by many, they are conceptualized in an essential way to fit the currently lives of the luxury consumer in 2020-2021. In resort season 2021, brands are creating styles that fit the “at-home” aesthetic that many of assumed for the bast 3-5 months. More relaxed and airy wide-legged trousers, whimsical summer dresses for laying out in the sun, and loose-fitting tops that can double as both a WFH piece or lounge around in the house. Whatever the inspiration, we’re embracing this new normal and eying key pieces to hoard in our closets.
We’ve curated a selection of styles from our favorite brands, that have brought in the spirit of carelessness and ease, that many of us should embrace during this season.
Valentino’s Resort 2021 Collection
As it seems, lockdown has unlocked the renaissance artist in Pierpaolo Piccioli – which we can add photographer to his list of skills as Creative Director for storied brand, Valentino. This resort collection is the byproduct of his time spent in seclusion – conceptualizing, creating and strategizing how he wants people to feel. So much has happened in fashion, that creating clothes which inherently provoke joy and elation, are just a few emotions, Piccioli wanted to express in this seasons collection. To keep short, the is a sense of simplicity in this collection, strong vibrant colors but relaxed silhouettes. All sartorialized in lightweight fabrics and materials that consist of silk, crepe de chines, soft wools, and airy organzas.
Petar Petrov’s Resort 2021 Collection
Petar Petrov has been on our radar for a few seasons for his structural jackets and coat, utilitarian dresses, and perfect fitted trousers. However, in this time of unpredictability, Petrov took a different approach to how he dresses women. With the world at a standstill and the rush of the fashion system at a holt, it allowed him to refine his designs and create pieces that appeal to women, currently. Tailor trousers, structured coats, and sleek-cut dresses still remain top of his assortment, but they’re done with more ease. More oversized, flowy tops and sweaters, soft silk or satin trousers, and dresses that drape magically actress the body.
MSGM’s Resort 2021 Collection
Quarantine has seemed for be therapeutic to MSGM’s Creative Director, Massimo Giorgetti. During this time, he researched, connected and surrounded himself with creatives to revamp his brand. He wanted new values for MSGM, to form a community. A community where creativity shines and evokes a story to his clients. This resort collection was like no other. All designs were mixed with saturated color ways and prints, styled to evoke a contemporary aesthetic, and imagined to for the energetic yet stylish women.
Victoria Beckham’s Resort 2021 Collection
Lastly, but certainly not least – Victoria Beckham. VB’s minimalism and personal wardrobing can sometimes grow grim after 10 years in business. Her aesthetic is consumed with her way of dressing herself and what she would wear. AND IT WORKS! Although, this collection was a bit different, some nostalgia remained. Her resort collection featured more evening looks with tailored pant suits, glittery dresses, and flounced silk tops. However, some were laid back with wide-legged denim, one-size dresses and pullover sweaters. Color palette was less outrageous however still satisfied our need for tailored designs.
