Oscar de la Renta Does Denim and All the Best Looks From the Resort 2018 Shows So Far

Dora Fung
Market Director

Oscar de la Renta‘s new design duo, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, injected some youth and humor into the Resort 2018 collection. A sequin, cheeky monkey wearing sunglasses and sipping a martini was everyone’s favorite print, as well as the banana leaf similar to the iconic wallpaper from the restaurant Indochine in New York City (fashion crowd’s favorite restaurant since the 80s!). In addition, denim is introduced, and with an Oscar de la Renta, you better believe this is denim at its softest and finest.

Speaking of comfort, Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Valentino Resort 2018 show in New York City on May 23 gave us all renewed energy for designers doing streetwear. A silk green tracksuit is the only thing we want to wear when we travel, while pink and red track pants paired with a fur coat is the Sunday-morning outfit of our dreams — and so are practically all the looks that Piccioli sent down the runway.

Inspired by the New York City hip-hop scene and working with Zandra Rhodes on some of the prints, Piccioli ensured the Valentino show something for everyone.

As for the other resort shows that have happened so far? The circuit reads more like the latest copy of Condé Nast Traveler, with Chanel’s Greek Revival at the Grand Palais in Paris, followed by Prada in Milan, Dior’s extravaganza in the Calabasas, Calif., desert, and Louis Vuitton near Kyoto, Japan.

So what of the fashion? Here are the best of the best from all the collections so far.

Gucci Resort 2018

The Gucci resort show in Florence, Italy, Monday night finally concludes the big fashion houses’ round-the-world resort extravaganza month. Creative director Alessandro Michele did not disappoint his gang of Gucci worshippers.

Gucci Resort 2018

The Internet went crazy not only for his usual over-the-top details in every look, including the makeup and the layering, but also with a version of social media’s favorite image from Dapper Dan’s ’80s collection featuring an iconic super-puffed-sleeve jacket made from Louis Vuitton’s famous monogram. If the resort collection has taught us anything, it’s that hip-hop from the ’80s is back. Time to dust off those track pants and break out the logos!
