MANCHESTER, England, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
With more designers debuting Resort collections than ever before, it's never been easier to hit the beach in style
With more designers than ever before launching their own beach-focused ranges this year, resort-wear is establishing itself as a serious high-fashion season in its own right. On the Beach, which specialises in late deal holidays, report that almost 200 designers' showcased 2012 resort collections. If there was ever a time to browse the web or window shop for this summer's suitcase ensembles, it's now!
Resort-wear began as a subset of the Spring/Summer fashion line, designed specifically for affluent fashionistas jetting off to warm foreign climes for a post-winter sunshine break. As both holidays and high-fashion have become more accessible over the years, to a far broader clientele, a growing number of design houses are now augmenting their S/S collections with dedicated Resort ranges.
Typically featuring lighter fabrics, nautical themes, Mediterranean colour palettes and plenty of cruise wear, this year's Resort collections introduced some hot new beachwear trends.
As one of the most colourful Resort-wear seasons yet, red dresses, vibrant colour blocking, shimmering silver and pale yellow emerged as the leading beachwear colour trends. Prints were bolder than ever before too, with Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Phillip Lim presenting striking head-to-toe print ensembles, and Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Preen opting for psychedelic mirrored floral prints.
Resort-wear is typically more lightweight, breathable, and easier to pack, and this year saw lace emerge as the lightweight fabric of choice. Alexander McQueen, Lanvin and Valentino all presented lace Resort-wear dresses and skirts, perhaps inspired by the popularity of Kate Middleton's renowned royal wedding gown of last summer.
As for accessories, colour-pop pink purses featured on several major Resort runways, and while wide brim hats remain de rigueur, the visor emerged as the new essential beachwear accessory.
"With so many new collections to choose from, and so many new trends emerging from this rapidly growing fashion sector, Resort-wear is attracting more attention than ever before," explained a spokesperson for On the Beach.
"There's never been a more holiday-oriented year for fashion and it's great news for travellers looking for some holiday fashion inspiration.
"High-fashion holiday wear is becoming more accessible than ever, and anyone can take inspiration from the emerging trends, whether they're enjoying a luxurious holiday or jetting off on a late deal bargain."
