9 Standout Trends from the Resort 2016 Collections - by Dana Kruspe Jun 22, 2015 8 followers, 10 press pieces

For many designers and retailers, the off-season collections are the most important. While resort and pre-fall don't get anywhere near the same media attention as their fall/winter and spring/summer counterparts — largely because they don't have dedicated fashion weeks — they stay on the shelves the longest, drawing the lion's share of some stores's annual budgets. It's little wonder that some of fashion's biggest brands are also dedicating the bulk of their show budgets to resort and pre-fall with opulent destination shows.

Over the past seven weeks, designers in New York, London, Paris and Milan took the wraps off their resort 2016 collections, which will hit stores in November — a time when shoppers are looking for holiday clothes and, a little later on, a new look for the new year. Resort is not often a season for new trends: While the collections generally exude a holiday vibe, they also tend to be slightly more subdued and simpler than their fall and spring counterparts, with fewer theatrics, though no less craft.
