PHI: Andreas Melbostad showed a collection that mixed edgy, modern silhouettes with a touch of escapist whimsy.


PORTS 1961:  Tia Cibani tapped the offbeat Art Nouveau sensibilities of industrial designer Charles Mackintosh and his artist wife Margaret MacDonald for resort.


PRADA: Surf’s up in the city, and it looks great. For her resort collection, Miuccia Prada infused high style with a beachy attitude.


PROENZA SCHOULER: In Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's latest collection, chic little skirts are teamed with superbare, slip or halter tops with draping and cutout details.



RACHEL ROY: “Scuba Pop” is how Rachel Roy describes her resort lineup of tropical looks inspired by underwater exploration.


RAG & BONE: David Neville and Marcus Wainwright stayed true to the Rag & Bone essentials of tailoring, layering, boyish fits and cool wearable pieces.


REBECCA TAYLOR: Rebecca Taylor kept things true to her signature bohemian style by offering classic hippie tops and dresses updated with suede leggings and novelty knitwear with metallic details.


REEM ACRA: Reem Acra’s collection is a celebration of color: red, lapis, yellow and turquoise in silk (dupioni, chiffon, taffeta and satin).


RENA LANGE: René Gruau’s illustrations served as inspiration for Rena Lange’s playful yet elegant resort collection.

RICHARD CHAI: According to Richard Chai, his girl is “never too lady,” and he strikes the perfect balance, infusing lighthearted prints with a tough edge.


ROBERTO CAVALLI: Cavalli channeled an Eighties French Riviera joie de vivre with easy-to-mix pieces, which included slouchy cargo pants, breezy layered dresses and sexy shorts.


ROKSANDA ILINCIC:"I was inspired by the idea of transforming cocktail and evening dresses into something more approachable in terms of fabric," said Roksanda Ilincic.


SALVATORE FERRAGAMO: Inspired by Fifties couture, creative director Christina Ortiz showcased a tight capsule of seven feminine looks.


SONIA RYKIEL: Going back to her roots, Sonia Rykiel created a cruise collection that was a fun throwback to her Eighties classics.


ST. JOHN: A collection filled with flirty floral blouses, colorful tweeds, pretty color-blocked dresses and even a knit boyfriend blazer — a modern take on the house’s signature knit jackets.


STELLA MCCARTNEY: The designer mixed the whimsical and the sophisticated and toyed with volume and shape: Scribble-print cotton organza trenches morphed into dresses when belted at the waist, and blouses dropped down to the knees thanks to invisible snaps.


TEMPERLEY LONDON: Alice Temperley showed a decidedly contemporary collection with drops of Greco-Egyptian vernacular, such as draping, braiding and ethnic prints.


THAKOON: The buzzword for Thakoon Panichgul this resort season? Texture.


TORY BURCH: Inspired by Iris Apfel, the designer mixed a variety of global themes, primarily South African, in a chic, bohemian way.


TULEH: Bryan Bradley was inspired by the music of Nina Simone, resulting in a lineup of beautiful silk flirty dresses in dreamy floral prints. 


VENA CAVA: Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock turned to South Africa’s Ndebele tribe as inspiration for their tight resort collection.


VERA WANG: Vera Wang, who’s known for her dark, artistic looks, opted for pops of color and new textures and proportions in a light, airy collection of separates.


VERSACE: Vibrant colors, flashes of metal, color blocks and Polynesian floral motifs are just a few of the elements Donatella Versace tossed into the mix for Versace cruise.


VIKTOR & ROLF: Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren took a softer, more languid tone with their signature masculine-feminine theme.


VIONNET: After researching Madeleine Vionnet’s draped world, newly minted creative director Rodolfo Paglialunga set out to offer his own take for the comeback of the storied house.


VPL BY VICTORIA BARTLETT: Victoria Bartlett put the focus on liquid, layered silhouettes in her resort collection, underscoring the all-about-ease mentality at the core of her VPL line.


YEOHLEE: Yeohlee Teng’s challenge right now is to define “the new meaning of ‘must haves.’” Accordingly, this collection is about clothes for “everywhere, anytime.


YIGAL AZROUEL: Yigal Azrouël turned out a collection filled with intricate embroidery and abstract ethnic prints, but it was far from bohemian.


YVES SAINT LAURENT: For cruise, Stefano Pilati reflected the heritage of the house’s late founder.


ZAC POSEN: Posen went wild with exploding bows on evening gowns, three-dimensional polkadot skirts and plenty of flirty florals.


ZERO + MARIA CORNEJO: Maria Cornejo likes contradictions, especially mixing a little structure or strong shoulders with relaxed elements.
