The Resort Report
180 collections, ten big trends
Resort. It's bigger and more bankable than ever. The in-between season once intended for stocking Palm Beach-bound steamer trunks is now mandatory for both established and emerging labels. Just ask first-timers like Prabal Gurung and Joseph Altuzarra, who were among the 40-something designers to add cruise collections to their offerings this year. What to watch for when the clothes arrive in stores in November: tropical prints, pajama dressing, brightly colored lace, and street-ready swimwear. This is key: You don't need a beach or a boat to wear any of it.
