Still keeping all your New Year’s resolutions? Like the one to freshen up your wardrobe? The cruise collections will do the job perfectly – and they’re already in the stores. They will steer your winter holiday wardrobe into warmer climes, bringing with them a good helping of spring sunshine.
It’s all about pastels at Prada. The resort collection is light and airy, with shirt dresses and delicate fabrics. A hint of mint, a hint of soft pink, frills and pleats. There was no avoiding pink at Bottega Veneta either. The dress with a wide belt is not only suited to tropical climes, but can also brighten up grey winter days. Men can combine winter and spring with white pinstripe trousers worn with a brown coat.
The fashion at Louis Vuitton has taken a Far Eastern turn. Wear the mini skirt with Asian motifs with leopard print shoes, or with kaftan dresses in blue, orange and red. The mini dungarees by Miu Miu with a floral, watercolour-like pattern really are best worn on a liner – true to the cruise motto.
